Peaceful breaks on the Isle of Wight

For someone seeking ultimate seclusion, the Isle of Wight should be top of your list. The ferry journey along will give you those overseas holiday vibes, landing at Cowes or Ryde. Cowes is a wonderful and relaxing place to stay if you’re after convenience - even Queen Victoria made this her holiday destination of choice, with her palatial summer home of Osborne House just a short walk away. For those seeking something even more remote, take the unusual chain ferry across the River Medina and head to the quiet South Coast.

Our wide range of remote holiday cottages will suit those in search of real seclusion. Whether you need WiFi to work in peace or you’re simply looking for a quiet location to escape from your busy life, we have a holiday home to suit you. Choose from seaside apartments with fantastic views or remote lodges with a log fire. If you want to bring your family along for a digital detox too, we have larger, family-friendly homes a stone’s throw from the island’s peaceful, quiet and sandy beaches.

Whatever you’re looking for, our customer service team will find the ideal home for you. What’s more, our regular discounts give you access to the best prices around. All that’s left for you is to enjoy the island’s natural beauty. For a truly remote experience, visit the rugged and windswept chalk stack of The Needles at West Wight. Or if you’d like a little civilisation, why not book a holiday park near the attractions of Sandown Pier and Tapnell Farm, or try Newport for the yearly Isle of Wight festival. The choice is yours!
