The Isle of Wight has a well-known sailing heritage that can be a great addition to your last minute cottage holiday. Cowes Week, the largest regatta in Britain and one of the longest running in the world, is held each year in August, making this a popular time for tourism. With an impressive coastline, watersports are easily found on the island. Ample surfing, kayaking, kite-surfing and jet skiing opportunities abound for those that are looking for an active addition to their last minute cottage break. Sea fishing trips can be chartered all around the island, and provide a wonderful opportunity to cook your own catch in your own private late availability cottage. With two musical festivals held on the island each year, Bestival and the Isle of Wight Festival, any one of the fantastic cottages we have on offer will be a great way to experience the atmosphere of the music in comfort and style. All of our last minute cottages on the Isle of Wight can be booked immediately and the vast majority have fantastic deals for late availability.
