8 DAYS FROM £566

 

As England’s largest Island, the Isle of Wight has over sixty miles of fantastic coastline, much of it recognised as ‘Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The pretty resort 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.

 

For 2019, we are pleased to return to the SHANKLIN HOTEL which is superbly situated with views over Sandown Bay towards the English mainland. The hotel features a large lounge, bar and restaurant with sea views along with a magnificent Starlite Lounge where entertainment is provided most evenings. All of the en suite bedrooms have a tv, telephone, hairdryer and hospitality tray. There is a passenger lift but please note all floors (including ground floor) are split level with some intermediate stairs.

• Full day ‘east’ island tour including the historic harbour town of Yarmouth, Alum Bay known for its unique coloured sand cliffs and the majestic chalk Needles where you can take a chairlift ride for spectacular views over the bay.
