Whether you are looking for a hideaway in the South Coast of England or a destination surrounded by beautiful scenery, Isle of Wight is a place that ticks both requirements. As the largest island in the area, it takes only 2 hours to get to London, while it is just 4 miles (6.4 kilometers) away from Hampshire. This place has attractions, such as gorgeous beaches, historic castles, nature reserves, and the island is also famous due to Queen Victoria’s holiday home of Osborne.
Other must-see attractions include the picturesque coastline from Shanklin to Ventnor, an iconic landmark known as The Needles, the historical Carisbrooke Castle, and the UK’s oldest amusement park called Blackgang Chine. To enjoy all this and more, read on for our list of the 10 best log cabins in Isle of Wight, the United Kingdom.
This little cabin shaped like an arc is in a large green field overlooking several acres of land through the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in Isle of Wight. All sorts of wildlife (foxes, red squirrels, and various birds) can be seen around. It gets really dark here at night, which turns it into a perfect spot for stargazing and relaxation. It’s very suitable for couples and small families. You can prepare and enjoy delicious meals at one of the picnic tables available or visit a family restaurant that’s within walking distance. Besides, it only takes a seven-minute drive from the cabin to the town of Yarmouth.
