Holiday Cottages In The Isle Of Wight To Rent

Holiday Cottages in the Isle of Wight

While it might only cover 30 square kilometres, the Isle of Wight manages to pack a lot into a small space. Choose one of our Isle of Wight Cottages as your holiday headquarters and you’ll be within easy distance of some superb beaches, including the one that used to be for the sole privilege of Queen Victoria. You’ll also find plenty of historical sites worth investigating, such as the spectacular ruins of a Roman villa or the imposing castles used by the likes of Charles I and King Henry VIII.

The Isle of Wight used to have a reputation for being a bit stuffy. However, things have changed and now the island attracts a much more vibrant class of visitor. Book one of our Isle of Wight Cottages in the early summer and you could find yourself rocking out at the Isle of Wight Festival, which still attracts big-name acts including the likes of Rod Stewart, Arcade Fire and Run DMC. If that sounds a bit too loud for you, hit the island in September and catch the melodic strains of the Classic Isle Festival, in which renowned classical musicians take the stage at the sublime setting of Northwood House.

What can I do on my holiday in the Isle of Wight?

If you’ve booked one of our holiday cottages in the Isle of Wight for the whole family, you’re going to need some entertainment. Luckily, the island isn’t short of an attraction or two. Head on over to the Dinosaur Isle at Sandown and your kids can get face-to-face with some fabulous fossils and some awesome animatronic dinosaurs. If your kids prefer looking at living beasts, your little monkeys can meet the little monkeys at Monkey Haven in Newport. Alternatively, Amazon World in Newchurch gives a taste of the tropics, without having to worry about the language barrier and inoculations.

We also have some beautiful holiday cottages in the Isle of Wight, which are perfect for couples looking to spend some quality time together. If it’s just the two of you, a trip to Queen Victoria’s old house is in order; Osborne House is stunning but its extensive, glorious gardens really put the icing on the cake. Picnicking is also a popular pastime amongst the romantically-inclined and there are plenty of idyllic spots to discover, such as the Needles at Alum Bay or the stunning Mottistone Woods.

What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In The Isle Of Wight To Rent.

Hilary - verified booking

"We had a great holiday. We enjoyed walks from the cottage within the grounds, found a shady stream with a rope swing. Short drive to carisbrooke castle, colwell bay (sandy beach, great for going in the sea) and mottistone. We booked a Tesco delivery for our arrival and then did little shops at Lidl. There's a family sized fridge freezer so you can do a weeks shop. We went to a lifeboat launch at Bembridge, and cycled the red squirrel trail from shanklin. We ate at Pavarotti's in shanklin, highly recommend, and went to the chine in the evening. We also went to godshill model village.We had glorious weather which always helps, but there was lots to do, could have happily filled 2 weeks! The children loved being at calbourne mill, we went every morning before they open at 10 to feed the birds and have a pedalo. Youngest child loved the lego table. The lodge is very comfortable, bigger than I expected from the photos. It was lovely and clean and the beds comfortable. The big windows upstairs stopped it getting stuffy or too hot. We didn't get pestered by the birds at all, the children loved seeing them walk about. We ate all our meals on the veranda and didn't use the dining room at all but it was very spacious. Thank you for a lovely holiday."

"Lovely light airy open plan eco house.Practical things which could be acted on to make it even better - 1 Toilets didn't flush properly. Water constantly trickling through so took hours to refill after use. Awkward when whole party trying to leave together. Please sort the toilets out!2 Recycling instructions - there were none, which for an eco pod which makes much of its green credentials is poor. There was one green wheely bin - no information about whether this was for glass and cans, or paper and cardboard, or all together, and whether waste should be presented separated out or commingled. No food waste bin at all. Where does the residual waste go? When are collections? No excuse for an eco pod not providing recycling instructions.3 Provide better quality loo roll. The starter set of one roll per bathroom provided was one ply which is cheap, and the eco pods are not. If it's recycled then say so. If not then splash out on the sort of quality people usually buy at home. 4 The children were uncomfortable about sitting on the balcony because of the peacock poo. Could this be cleaned up more often?The boats - the pedals don't work well on the pedalled, put us off this year."

"We stayed for a weekend at Sea Breezes as we were attending a wedding in Yarmouth. The directions and location for our needs were brilliant - when we got off the Yarmouth ferry it was a 6-9 minute drive to the house. On arrival there was a lovely welcome pack and the owner was in contact beforehand to give information on the cottage and the area. Sue also found out about the bus service for us to get to the wedding. We were 2 couples and 2 grown up children - plenty of hot water, the bedding and towels were clean and comfortable athe bedrooms were on the whole comfortable although the twin beds were low and our grown up children found them uncomfortable. We made use of the garden furniture and the garden was sunny in the afternoon. It was a bit of a squash round the dining table for 6 adults but we ate out mostly. Approx 15 mins walk to Totland and Colwell Bay and a shop across the road for necessities. On a main road which I did not expect. Could benefit from some black out blinds as the light came flooding into the bedrooms first thing in the morning, so we woke early. Wifi etc and kitchen appliances all very efficient. Great stay - recommend!"

"It's hard to say what the best thing about Bowden is: braving the wind to stand on the private beach at midnight on Christmas Eve; cooking Christmas dinner with red squirrels feeding outside the window; sitting in the conservatory watching the sky get dark across the beautiful grounds; running your hands over the banisters, lovingly restored with 24 coats of varnish; chatting to Peter the owner over coffee; piling into the living room with wine, cake and board games... The house is historic, majestic, magical and beautifully crafted, with space for a large extended family group to eat together and play together, or to spread out over several rooms for a variety of activities. A minor drawback is the disparity between the sweeping grandeur of the first floor and the servants quarters on the second floor: bedroom and bathroom arrangements need some negotiation to keep all group members happy! It was a privilege to be the first guests for Christmas 2017 and to feel that we honoured Peter's vision of bringing his beloved family home back to life for a new chapter in the house's history."

"The photo above is not of 268 Gurnard Pines - probably another property on the site. Gurnard Pines is described as a Holiday village but many of the properties on site are residential and some are needing some care and attention. We were advised that there was parking for 2 cars immediately outside the property. There was space for 2 cars but not solely for the use of the occupants so the space was not always available. Whilst the property was very clean and most things were in very good condition the only seating in the lounge area was 2 sofa beds - not always easy to get up from. There was only one small wardrobe in the main bedroom - nowhere to hang clothes in the other two bedrooms - which just had a chest of drawers. We were fortunate to have good weather which was good as there was nowhere in the property to hang coats etc."
