Isle of Wight Accommodation For A Winter Getaway
Whilst every year many will book holidays for the spring and summer months, there are actually so many benefits to organising a winter getaway too and you don’t necessarily need to venture far from home. Simply coming to the Isle of Wight for a long weekend as the weather turns colder can help you to beat the winter blues and enjoy everything that the Island has to offer without having to navigate the masses of tourists that visit during the warmer months.
Of course, when you’re arranging a little break for the December to March period, the accommodation you book is likely to differ from what you’d go for in the May to September period and many will swap a campsite for a holiday cottage or hotel. If you’re wanting to book a winter getaway this year and you’re wondering which Isle of Wight accommodation will be best to book, below are some brilliant options to consider.
This is a beautifully restored manor house near Freshwater and with comfortable sofas and feature fireplaces, you can easily cosy up here during the colder months. Weston Manor B&B is surrounded by countryside and there are many local walks to coastline locations. This is a brilliant place to stay if you’re organising a group getaway too as you can hire the whole house.
This is a unique boutique B&B which is perfect for a winter getaway. Koala Cottage is tucked away in one of the prettiest places on the Island, Godshill, and many enjoy wandering around this quintessential English Village. This Isle of Wight accommodation option really is the perfect base if you’re wanting to explore the whole of the Island too.
