On the Map: Out of the Ordinary Isle of Wight Stays

26 May 2021

Just two hours away from London via ferry (or hovercraft!), the Isle of Wight is an ideal destination for lovers of intriguing history, rich heritage, and windswept coastal scenery.

Designated a UNESCO biosphere reserve, the island’s rugged cliffs and quarries are perfect for fossil-hunting, while Queen Victoria loved the verdant Isle of Wight landscape so much, that she built her beloved summer residence there.

Discover the intriguing vibrancy to be found on this small-but-perfectly-formed island by booking a stay in one of our favourite retreats, which you can browse right here, right now.
