The sea side retreat of Queen Victoria. A fascinating insight into Victorian life. Swiss cottage is the children's chalet situated in the grounds where dressing up in costume is available. A stroll through the trees takes you down to the private beach of Osborne House with the extravagant shell lined shelter is well worth the effort.

Osborne House is a 'must-see' place when visiting the Isle of Wight. Only ten minutes from the cottage, it was the home of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. Beautiful grounds, incredible interiors and an important historical place.

There are often events taking place there, so be sure to check out the English Heritage website for more information.

This is a house favoured by Queen Victoria & Prince Albert. The house is well worth a visit ,also the gardens and beach. There is a mini bus that takes you to the beach and childrens playhouse.

This is the house that Queen Victoria and Prince Albert lived. It has an amazing museum, Beautiful gardens and grounds, Swiss Cottage where the royal children played. and a superb walk down to Osborne Beach where Victoria herself bathed.
There is a very elegant Terrace Restaurant and Orangery, or if you fancy a snack, and nice Cafe and Gift Shop.
