Spotlight on the South Wight

In this newsletter I thought that I would introduce you to the Southern side of the Isle of Wight, which is dominated by the rising form of St. Boniface Down, the highest point on the Island and it is the side of the this Down that the coastal town of Ventnor clings to, with its’ distinctly Mediterranean feel and warmer micro climate.

Within theSouth Wight we have the hidden gems of Steephill Cove, Bonchurch,Niton and Chale and these pretty, busy villages are the life blood of the South Wight. 


Take a look at what the South Wight has to offer by clicking the links below.  If you are looking for something specific, please feel free to call our friendly staff on 01983 520052 who are always happy to help.  Alternatively send an email to[email protected]
