Beautiful beaches on the Isle of Wight 

Why not kick off your socks and shoes this summer, and feel the warm sand spread between your toes? Our beaches at Compton, St Helens and Culver have soft sand and safe waters, making them the perfect place to spend a warm summer’s day.

Butterfly spotting on the Isle of Wight 

Providing good habitats and being slightly warmer than mainland Britain, the Isle of Wight is an ideal place to spot butterflies, and the prime butterfly sites are on land cared for by us.

Cowes Week at Rosetta 

Rosetta, our holiday cottage on the seafront at Cowes, is the perfect place to watch all the action out on the water during Cowes Week. It sleeps up to 10 people too, so it’s great for a group of friends or family that want to enjoy all the shore-side entertainment that runs throughout the day and into the night. And it just happens to have last minute availability with a saving of 15% for Cowes Week (Sat 29 July-Sat 5 Aug).
