About holidays in the Isle of Wight

self-catering holiday cottages Isle of WightJust off the coast of England, almost opposite Southampton, lies the Isle of Wight, a popular destination for summer holidays for British people.   The island lies just 3 miles south of the UK mainland, so you can easily get there by ferry from  Southampton, Lymington or Portsmouth. 

 

The Isle of Wight offers both a traditional seaside holiday on the coast and unspoiled countryside inland. You have a choice of exploring by car, on foot, or if you enjoy cycling, on your bike. There is a 62 mile round island cycle route for the serious cyclist and off-road trails for mountain bikers, plus safe cycling for families along former railway lines.

 

If you prefer to spend most of your time close to the beach, then you will find plenty of beach activities, amusement parks, the freshest fish and chips, tea shops galore, gift shops to browse in for souvenirs and trinkets.   If you enjoy historical and cultural visits and day trips, then you may consider a visit to Carisbrook Castle or Roman ruins, walks along a pier, a visit to one of the potteries, Arreton Craft Village, a trip on the steam railway, or shopping in one of the main towns of Brading, Cowes, Freshwater, Newport, Ryde, Sandown, Shanklin, Ventnor, or Yarmouth.  

 Cowes Week, at the beginning of August is one of the highlights of the year on the Isle of Wight. Plenty of sailing and watersports are available.
