Osborne House

Just show me cottages near Osborne House

If you've paid a visit to the Isle of Wight, you'll know that it's a real contrast to other parts of the UK; easy to get around, drop-dead beautiful and a refreshing escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life! Perhaps that's why then, that in 1845, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert chose to build a private family home here. Named Osborne House, their grand creation was destined to become a regal retreat away from the pressures of London. And now, over 100 years later, the English Heritage has opened Osborne House to the public, so you can enjoy the majestic delights of this former royal residence all for yourself. Why not pay this glorious abode a visit on your next cottage holiday to the Isle of Wight?

Curated by Prince Albert and the Queen herself, the garden of Osborne House is a stirring reminder of the couple's fashionable taste.
