Isle of Wight Summer Holiday in Shanklin

Mon 26th – Friday 30th August 2019

Join us for five day holiday to the beautiful Isle of Wight!

Day One
Departing South Wales we head to Southampton for our afternoon sailing over the Solent to Cowes on the Isle itself. From here it’s a short drive to the hotel for the weekend, the simple but conveniently located Medehamstede Hotel* in Shanklin. *Please note: There is no lift at the Medehamstede Hotel. Please let us know at time of booking if you require a ground floor or first floor bedroom, which are subject to availability.

Here you’ll be treated to four nights dinner, bed and breakfast along with entertainment most evenings.
Just a stones throw away from the beach in one direction, and the town centre in the other. Shanklin has lots to offer, beach bars with restaurants galore might make you venture out to sample the culinary delights one evening!

Day Two – Island tour
Today we take you around the south , West and North of the island. Taking in the channel views as we head to Alum bay and the Needles, Yarmouth with its wooden pier and inland to Godshill…for the best cream teas around!

Day Three
The island has more than one vineyard due to its milder climate, so we will take you to sample the produce ! And if wine isn’t for you then join your driver in a very fine apple juice ! From here it’s on to Ryde. This glorious seafront town faces back to the mainland and Portsmouth. With the 2nd longest pier in the country, you can even hop on a hovercraft from here!. We return to Shankin for the afternoon.

Day Four
Today we head Osborne House*, Queen Victoria’s residence on the island, or Ryde, (for those not wanting Osborne) With it’s promenade and pier and the hovercrafts too! Just one of the many ways back to the mainland. (* House entry not included)

Day Five 
Time to head home. Back to Cowes for your crossing to Southampton before returning to Wales that evening.
