Isle of Wight (based in Shanklin)

Isle of Wight (based in Shanklin)





7 Days from £628


With a shoreline dotted with sandy beaches, stunning cliffs and unique visitor attractions, it’s easy to see why the Isle of Wight has been a popular destination since Victorian times. Over half of the island has been designated as an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’; a drive along the coast provides a never-ending series of spectacular views whilst inland you’ll find oldeworlde villages with pretty thatched cottages, where time seems to have almost stood still. The pretty resort town of Shanklin is split with the old village lying on the cliff top and the new village nestled close to the sea. The two are connected by a cliff lift.

New for 2021, our base in Shanklin is the very comfortable CHANNEL VIEW HOTEL which enjoys a superb location on the cliff top overlooking the bay. Family owned for the past 30 years, the Channel View prides itself on its hospitality and excellent local cuisine. Features include an indoor pool with sauna and bar/lounge and all of the rooms have en suite bedrooms, tv, telephone, hairdryer and hospitality tray. A passenger lift serves all floors.
