All seven West Wight Cottages have achieved gold status in Visit Isle of Wight’s Green Star scheme, meaning they all have outstanding facilities and resources that make it easier for visitors to explore the Island without a car.

Located in the heart of a walking and cycling paradise, the beautiful, home-from-home cottages are spread across the picturesque villages of Brighstone, Shorwell, Totland and Yarmouth. Anyone looking to explore the West Wight on foot or by bike will find plenty of inspirational routes and maps in their cottage to stimulate them to get outdoors and enjoy the landscape.
