West View Cottage is central to Ryde, the Islands largest and most vibrant holiday resort. It is an ideal location for those without personal transport as it is easily reached from the Red Funnel  Red Jet Terminal in Cowes to the large bus terminal in Ryde. From here you can tour the island using the first class bus service. If bringing the car it is a half hour drive and parking is in a large public car park 100 metres from the front door.  A Tourist Parking permit is included in the price of your accommodation and this covers on- street parking and most Council run car parks across the island. Once in Ryde attractions include long sandy beaches, large park and gardens, all weather swimming pool, boating lake, ten pin and lawn bowling, tennis courts, and much more. There is a wide array of unique shops  as well as supermarket, cinema, Victorian Arcade,  restaurants and bars to suit all tastes but why not eat at home!
