Few of us rarely need an excuse for a good party, and, hopefully, if the weather holds, the summer of 2021 will be the ideal time to get together with loved ones in a safe environment.

But what will you do? There are tons of different options on the Isle of Wight, and you could also help boost the local economy by hosting a party that taps into the many small businesses in the area.
If you’re hosting a party on the Isle of Wight in 2021, here’s just some of the options available to you:
Book a Cottage
Even just a quick Google search along the lines of ‘book a cottage Isle of Wight’ brings up hundreds of options, and there truly are cottages and holiday rentals for all tastes and budgets on the island.
Naturally, the further towards the coast you go the more pricey the properties tend to be – everybody wants those stunning views of the ocean after all – but 2021 is a great year for a staycation on the Isle of Wight.
Ready for you… when you are able to 🌅

Have a Pamper Evening
Who doesn’t love a good trip to the spa?
In 2021, there will be a trend for home-based activities, and the good news is that there are ‘mobile’ spas on the Isle of Wight that will come to you.
You’ll be treated by a beauty therapist and receive a range of treatments without needing to leave your front door – this is the easiest way to enjoy a relaxing evening.
Alternatively, you can order in all of the pamper products you will need.
Dress Up for a Casino/Bingo Night
If you prefer your evenings to be more action-packed, how about renting your own casino?
The dress code will be very much your choice as the gaming tables are brought to you, with roulette, blackjack, and poker all available.
Alternatively, you could turn your home into a bingo hall – it’s easy to access DIY-style bingo games online….you could even just draw some numbers on a pack of ping pong balls if you wish!
Or, if you don’t fancy going all-out so much, there are plenty of online sites that offer bingo casino games. You can access hundreds of different titles, all at the touch of a button – so why not get a few friends together and you can compete in the same room for real money? These online sites offer the same experience as a traditional, or DIY, bingo hall, but all in one place.
A Spot of (Afternoon) Tea
Whether a nice cup of tea or a glass of fizz is your thing, there are companies on the Isle of Wight who will supply everything you need for a relaxing spot of afternoon tea with friends and family.
Gone are the days where you’d spend an hour cutting crusts off sandwiches for picky Aunty Jane, with all of the hard work done for you – your job is to simply sit back, relax and enjoy the treats provided!
The (At Home) Pub Crawl
If you enjoy popping into a few local establishments on the Isle of Wight, as a rule, you can flip the pub crawl concept on its head by hosting your own evening of merriment at home.
You could turn each room (okay, so maybe not the bathroom) of your property into a different themed pub, complete with funny signs and perhaps even classic pub games where possible.
That way, you can enjoy a different environment for each round of drinks… without the need to book a taxi for the journey home.
Within these five ideas, you have the blueprint for an outstanding weekend on the Isle of Wight.
