New things to see and do on the Isle of Wight
Many of the Islands popular attractions have been here for generations, and have been updated and extended over the years, whereas some have changed very little and have preserved their original charm.
Cottages by the Sea
Being on an Island with 60 miles of coastline, it’s never too difficult to find a lovely cottage by the Sea, and we have plenty to offer. A full list of these can be found here, but below is a list of some examples you may not know about:
Island Harbour – a little known peaceful location
Just over a quarter of a mile off the main route between Newport and Ryde, you’ll find an idyllic riverside development of waterfront homes spaced along the Marina which is the only harbour on the Island to use Lock-gates to maintain the water level at low tide. Island Harbour remains a quiet and peaceful area which many Island Visitors have never explored.
Cowboy Showdown at Blackgang Chine
Using nothing but an old bit of wood and maybe a homemade bow and arrow out of some bamboo from the garden and bit of string, I'm sure many people have fond memories of playing Cowboys and Indians (native Americans) as a child, I know I do.
Best place for an Island Sundowner
At the end of a long day of exploring the Island, playing on the beach or recovering from a long hike (maybe to the pub), there’s nothing better than enjoying a cold drink on a summers evening and watching the sun go down over the horizon whilst staring out to sea.
Isle of Wight Festival 2019
The Isle of Wight Festival returns to Seaclose Park in Newport again on the 13th June for another 4 day weekend, filled with plenty of face-paint, Wellies with tiny shorts, silly hats and of course an enormous line up of amazing acts you won’t see anywhere else this year!
