Festive Break at the Isle of Wight

England's largest island, the Isle of Wight, is a short sea crossing from the southern mainland coast of the United Kingdom. It has been used as a holiday destination since Queen Victoria and her husband Prince Albert chose the Isle of Wight as their family home in the 1800’s at Osbourne House. The island itself has so many varied sites of heritage importance, from the landmark of The Needles and the Lighthouse. Each coastline is very different in character and range from river estuaries to soaring cliffs, with secluded coves perfect for rock pooling and beautiful beaches
