Historic Reviews

Spend time in the fort, stay in the west Wight, All of it, just fantastic!
Gary, Tracy & Paddy

Fabulous place to stay, so different. Amazing roof top for stunning sunsets.
Great walks all around location, especially on Tennyson down and along to the Needles. Great beach at Compton Bay. Freshwater good for co op and local shops.
Rainbow fish and chips very tasty!

Amazon World is a must as is the IOW Steam Railway. Osborne House and Carisbrook Castle were also very enjoyable.

The property is ideally located to visit The Needles which was an amazing experience.
