Heading across the Solent, we return to the Isle of Wight for 2018. Highly requested by our guests, we’ll show you the highlights of the island including the delightful Godshill and a visit to the famous Pearl Centre, or you may just prefer to stay in Shanklin. This year we also include a cruise around Cowes Harbour and Osborne Bay.
Having had a lunch stop on the way, we cross the Solent by ferry and expect to arrive in Shanklin late afternoon. There will be time to walk along the Esplanade and settle into your room before dinner.
Delightful Godshill is our morning visit. It is described as a classic ‘chocolate box village’ and could be the highlight of your visit. We continue on to Cowes to enjoy a ‘traditional tea afloat’ on a cruise around Cowes Harbour and Osborne Bay.
We take a drive along the south side of the island, visiting the Isle of Wight Pearl Centre and Alum Bay. Returning to the hotel we stop in Yarmouth, a pleasant village in which you will have time to explore.
Your driver will offer an optional excursion, or you can spend time in Shanklin.
Sadly we head home today, after crossing the Solent we’ll stop for lunch before arriving home later in the afternoon.
The 3 star Channel View Hotel enjoys an enviable reputation and is in an excellent location, just 5 minutes from the beach in Shanklin or a 10 minute walk to Old Shanklin. If you are lucky you might even see a red squirrel. You can expect good food and accommodation at this excellent hotel.
There is a lift to most floors, and we are able to request rooms with a walk in shower. The hotel also benefits from an indoor swimming pool!
