The Isle of Wight is a perfect holiday or short break destination for anybody of any age! Lying off the south coast of England it has something for everybody, from children to senior citizens, the Isle of Wight offers much to do in the hotspots such as Shanklin, Sandown, Ventnor, Yarmouth and Godshill.
The small village of Godshill is truly beautiful with Chocolate Box Cottages and quaint cosy tea rooms. The Model Village is the perfect place for you to take a relaxing stroll round on a warm summers afternoon, perfect for the over 55s who just want a quiet and slow paced visit without all the business noise, hustle and bustle. It’s extremely peaceful! Godshill has some of the oldest architecture on the Isle of Wight offering a typical quintessential English scene. The beautiful medieval church of All Saints gave Godshill it’s name. If you fancy a drink then be sure to stop off at the Godshill Cider Company for a nice cold glass of Cider, Ginger Beer, Beer or Liquors all of which are home-made in Godshill. If you fancy a refreshing cup of tea then there is the Old Smithy, the former Blacksmith Forge and Cottage that has a welcoming tea room and a lovely gift shop.
If you love animals then there the Isle of Wight Zoo in Sandown that’s well worth a visit, perfect if you like big cats, lemurs, chimps, wallabies plus much more. You can meet Zena the white tiger, a rare white version of the Indian tiger. You can also take the opportunity to adopt an animal – perfect for any animal lover!
Sandown and Yaverland beaches are the perfect place to top up your tan or cool off in the sea after a hot day or if you like a little more activity then you can take in a round of golf and tee off at the Shanklin and Sandown Golf Club.
Another picturesque resort is Shanklin which has the usual seaside attractions down near the beach plus a beautiful Old Village which is home to some of the oldest buildings on the island including a beautiful thatched pub steeped in history. Eglantine Cottage where renowned poet John Keats resided back in 1819 was only one of two lodging houses on the island at that time – how things have changed!
Ryde is a great place to visit, where you can enjoy the Isle of Wight Steam Railway which also hosts some great events throughout the year.
