Festive Food, Fun & Entertainment nightly!
Enjoy this festive Turkey & Tinsel themed break on Britain's favourite holiday island. This diamond shaped island is a true gem and was one of Queen Victoria’s favourite spots. Over 60 miles of stunning coastal scenery and quaint villages will appeal to all ages and create lasting memories. Attractions are in plentiful supply on the island, with something to suit everyone. Get a taste of the Isle of Wight’s history and culture by visiting one of the museums or historic sites. The most recognisable landmark is The Needles Rocks and Lighthouse. A visit to the Isle of Wight wouldn’t be complete without visiting some of its famous beaches and the island has the highest number of award-winning beaches in England.
We have also laid on great excursions to some of the best that the Isle of Wight has to offer, including Yarmouth, the famous Needles, Newport and Ryde.

There is also a licensed café at the foot of Yarmouth pier which is open all year round serving a range of food and refreshments, including locally sourced Minghella Ice Cream.
The Needles & Alum Bay
As soon as you think of the Isle of Wight the iconic image of the Needles springs to mind, the Islands' most famous landmark attraction which you will get to enjoy in conjunction with views over Alum Bay, best known for its multi-coloured sand cliffs and stunning views across the Solent. Some 60 million years ago movement in the bedrock caused underwater sediments to be pushed nearly vertical to form the multi-coloured cliffs that are visible today.
Newport on the Isle of Wight has two elegant squares and many fine Georgian and Victorian town houses. The impressive colonnaded Guildhall was designed by John Nash and built in 1816, with the clock tower added in 1887 to commemorate Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee. It now houses the Museum of Island History and the Tourist Information Centre. Shopping in Newport is a pleasure, with a variety of exclusive small shops, coffee shops and cafes all within easy walking distance. Newport Harbour is just a short walk from the town centre and museums, crafts studios and the Quay Arts Centre are housed in former warehouses.
The largest town on the Island, Ryde has fine Georgian and Victorian buildings, shops, tea-rooms, pubs, restaurants, and a marina. The sea-wall promenade provides a popular walk, passing the Victorian watchtower on the way to Puckpool Park.
