The Isle of Wight measures 23 miles by 13 miles and is littered with picturesque villages and bustling small towns.
The ‘Diamond Isle’ as it’s known, has a peaceful beauty and an indefinable charm, along with a particularly mild sunny climate.
This modern seaside hotel is on the Esplanade, across the street from the beach and a 2-minute walk from the Sandown Pier entertainment area. Rooms are cosy and functional – most have stunning sea views out across the English Channel. All rooms have flat panel TV with radio, as well as hairdryer, complimentary hospitality tray, toiletries, direct dial phone and free Wi-Fi.
Nothing could be better than drifting off to sleep to the sound of the waves lapping gently against the shore, other than waking up to the glorious sunrise over Sandown Bay; these are the sights and sounds that most of the Trouville’s bedrooms have to offer.
The Trouville has a well-deserved reputation for high standards in service and hospitality. The restaurant has panoramic views across the sweep of the bay and is recognised for producing excellent quality food.
We’re off to Newport which located at the centre of the Island and if often referred to at its ‘capital’. The town is based on two elegant squares with Georgian and Victorian architecture on display. Tuesday is market day which features their highly rated farmers market too. Afterwards on to the quintessential English village full of traditional tea shops with free time to visit the Model Village and the Old Smithy, a 17th Century cottage complete with herb gardens and a very nice tea shop.
This morning we see one of the natural wonders of the English coastline when we visit Alum Bay and view the famous ‘Needles’. And then spend some time in the resort of West Cowes where you can explore the rich and fascinating history, a stroll along the seafront and see boats of every shape and size or enjoy a break in the many pretty pavement cafés.
