The Isle of Wight has been a popular holiday destination since the Victorian era when Queen Victoria made Osbourne House her winter home. The island is known for its beautiful scenery, especially on the coast, and mild climate. It is also a well known destination for walking with an annual walking festival.

Our walks will explore both the island’s coast and interior providing a varied itinerary and a great way to get to know the island. Our itinerary will include the Needles, the impressive chalk stacks to the west of the island and stunning Freshwater Bay. We will walk direct from Shanklin on one day and hope to head to the beautiful St Helens bay too – a stunning location on the east coast.

On this holiday, we will be based in Shanklin, to the south east of the island. It is a popular seaside resort with a beautiful sandy beach and pretty old quarter. We have sole use of a lovely 4 star B&B, in a quiet residential area of Shankiln, 5 minutes walk from the station and  10 minutes from the seafront. The perfect location for our walking holiday.

The Isle of Wight is less than 20 minutes away by catamaran and 10 minutes by hovercraft. Both options are linked with train services.

We have exclusive use of the 10 bedroom Kenbury B&B. An imposing building with garden and bar, it is in a quiet location around 10 minutes walk from the beach. "Our focus is on you, ensuring you have a good night’s sleep in a comfortable bed, a hot shower with quality toiletries and a sumptuous Isle of Wight breakfast. Walkers and cyclists are very welcome and any guests just wanting to relax and unwind, maybe with a drink, can do so in the garden or comfy lounge and bar. We are based in a quiet residential area, less than 10-15 minutes walk to the seafront or Shanklin old town."
