Stay on the Isle of Wight

Whether you’re travelling down for a day trip, short break or longer holiday, the Isle of Wight is the perfect place to explore, have fun and enjoy some well-earned rest. Try cycling or walking on some of the Island’s 60 miles of coastline and take in some breathtaking views at the same time, there are famously more miles of footpaths and bridleways than there are roads! It might be a bit fresh to take a dip in the sea on one of our pretty beaches and bays, but they are still wonderful for a coastal walk or perhaps try your hand at some water-sports from surfing to paddle-boarding.
