Take time to rediscover the Isle of Wight on this lovely summer holiday. With a shoreline dotted with sandy beaches, stunning cliffs and unique attractions, it’s easy to see why it’s been a popular destination since the Victorian era. This sunshine break at a Warner Resort will see you relaxing outside the chalet in peaceful surroundings, overlooking the Solent or dancing the night away with live nightly entertainment.
The Norton Grange Resort boasts sparklingly fresh standard chalets, providing everything under the sun to ensure a comfortable stay and a great night’s sleep. Crisp linen, simple but sweet décor and ambient lighting set the scene for a truly restful stay and makes a fantastic base for exploring the local area.
Day One – We depart Pembrokeshire and make our way to Lymington for the short crossing to Yarmouth before arriving nice and early at The Norton Grange Resort.
Day Two - This morning we head to the Capital of the island, Newport. It is market day today, therefore grab a bargain before we explore another part of the Island as we head inland to Godshill. With small independent shops, a model village and cream tea cafes this is just what is need before taking the coastal route back to the hotel.
Day Three - This morning we make our way to what was once Queen Victoria’s seaside home, Osbourne House. We can visit the private apartment, state rooms and Queen Victoria’s private beach where the bathing machine the Queen used is on display. Sit back and relax in the wonderful garden and have a coffee on the beach as you watch the boats pass by. If Osbourne House is not your thing, you have the option to visit East Cowes and take the chain ferry to Cowes. After our visit we make our way to Rosemary Vineyard for some all-important tasting of the famous wine, apple juice, cider and gin.
Day Four - No trip to the Isle of Wight is complete without a visit to Alum Bay, which is famous for its multi-coloured sandy cliffs and breath-taking views of the Needles and Lighthouse. Take a ride on the chairlift for a spectacular view of the coastline. After a visit here, we make our way back for an afternoon of leisure at the hotel.
Day Five – Sadly, it’s time to depart the Island and start our journey back to Wales.
