Great hotel location, fabulous festive food & entertainment all topped off with a visit to Victoria & Albert's Osborne House on Boxing Day!

Enjoy this fabulous Christmas holiday on the gorgeous Isle of Wight. This diamond shaped island is a UK gem and one of Queen Victoria’s favourite spots. It is also one of the sunniest and warmest places in the country, located just a few miles from the South Coast of England. No passport is needed for the short ferry crossing, and once you're on the Island everything is within easy reach. The Isle of Wight has over 60 miles of stunning coastal scenery, lively resorts and quaint villages combine with a friendliness and old-fashioned charm to make for a really memorable Christmas holiday.

We stay in the resort of Sandown with its miles of soft golden sands crowned by Sandown’s pleasure pier. Popular with tourists, Sandown is a 'bucket and spade' holiday destination with a lovely esplanade and a whole lot more.

This Christmas holiday is remarkably good value, considering that there's a ferry crossing included, festive food & an entertainment programme. On Christmas Eve we will go to Ryde and to the famous yachting town of Cowes. Boxing Day see us heading off to gorgeous Osborne House, beautifully decorated for the festive season.
