Does anyone have a personal recommendation? I originally looked at but it is hugely expensive for 3 nights. We are looking to go the back end of Easter holidays for a few days and there is an inset day at school so we are able to stay Fri-Mon.

Coast or rural we don't mind, would def like outside space and possibly a BBQ.

I have family there and stay regularly. It really depends on where you want to be. I have stayed at a few times and its been great. Right next to the sea.
I've also stayed in the centre of Cowes, google, marinus apartments. They are really lovely.
Ventnor is also a great place to stay.

Blue chip holidays have some great properties on the iow. They have a great marinus apartment too.

I think we would like to be somewhere quietish. I would like lots of outdoor/beach running around for the kids and a cottage or wooden cabin type property. I'll have a look at your recommendation thanks.

we stayed in one of the cottages at a couple of years ago and the kids enjoyed it (particularly the playbarn!) Lots of space to run around.
