Discover the beautiful Isle of Wight
Begin the exploration from your own holiday home
Owning a holiday home on the Isle of Wight comes with a wealth of diverse attractions to tickle the fancy of a wide range of visitors, whether young or old.
The Isle of Wight is only 23 miles by 13 miles in size, but don’t let that fool you into thinking there isn’t much to do! The island has a rich history and also has exceptional wildlife, a big cat sanctuary and is one of the richest fossil locations for dinosaurs in Europe.
There is an unbelievable array of activities from angling to zoos to keep you busy, along with over 200 miles of cycling routes and over 500 miles of well-maintained walking paths.
Explore outside the park
If you want to get up, out and about, you couldn’t have picked a better place to explore.
A unique landmark attracton, offering a breathtaking chairlift ride to view the Island’s famous Needles Rocks and Lighthouse. Included in the Park’s facilities are the popular Sand Shop, where visitors can make their own unique sourvenir, a traditional Carousel and Jurrasic Golf, a nine hole adventure golf with some 3 and 4 par holes.
Isle of Wight Zoo
The Isle of Wight Zoo is a family-run zoo with a special interest in tigers and lemurs. Built within the ruins of a Victorian fort that guarded Sandown’s coast, it faces one of the Isle of Wight’s nicest beaches. Very grrrr baby.
Blackgang Chine is an eccentric mix of exciting rides, goblins and fairies, dinosaurs, nursery rhyme characters, cowboys and Indians. Repeated landslides destroyed the original chine and a family-friendly theme park now takes its place. Imagination come to life!
Discover the history of the island’s foremost castle. Best known as the place where King Charles I was imprisoned. Children will love dressing up as Norman soldiers and meeting the castle’s donkeys. For the grown-ups, the new Edwardian style Princess Beatrice Garden is a joy.
Shanklin Chine at the southern end of Sandown Bay. Explore the deep ravine to find its secrets. Today, it’s one of the island’s top tourist attractions, but in wartime, it had a much more important function. Can you guess what it was?
Ventnor Botanic Gardens
Open all year, with delights in every season, Ventnor Botanic Garden is justifiably one of the Isle’s top attractions. With a subtropical and exotic plant collection thriving in the outdoors, you can see plants you’d normally have to travel to Mediterranean zones to see
