Carisbrooke is located in the centre of the island and makes an ideal base for exploring the Island during your holiday. The cottage is within walking distance of the beautiful St George's Downs and the 8 mile Island cycle track from Newport to Sandown.
The Isle Of Wight
The Isle of Wight offers the opportunity of many outdoor pursuits including walking, cycling, and golf.
The Island is one of the richest wildlife counties in Britain. It has a large colony of red squirrels which although rare on the mainland are regularly seen on the island.
The island has 13 award winning beaches. Some of these provide the best places for finding dinosaur fossils in Europe.

The two major ferry companies are wightlink and redfunnel. Both offer a regular service throughout the year. There is also a passenger hovercraft service for a more exciting ride!
