The Isle of Wight’s just 23 miles by 13, but that doesn’t stop it being a giant in fun, adventure and history. Over 500 miles of paths and a yearly walking festival make it one of the UK’s premier walking destinations, while 200 miles of cycle paths have earned it the nickname Bicycle Island. Then there are world-class beaches, castles, heritage sites and pretty-as-a-picture towns and villages. With Bembridge Coast Hotel on the island’s east coast and Norton Grange Coastal Village by the west, Warner’s two hotels are perfectly placed for doing and seeing it all.
Bembridge Coast Hotel
This beachside sparkler began life as a family home before catching the eye of royalty. The late Queen Mother was a regular guest to watch the yachts in Cowes Week. Elegant rooms look over a lovely sand and pebble beach and the landscaped grounds play host to a bowling green, pitch and putt, and archery. Bembridge, named UK Village of the Year in the Countryfile Magazine Awards 2019, is just next door
Norton Grange Coastal Village
Close to the ferry port of Yarmouth on the West Wight, the chalets at this charming seaside village provide peaceful spaces and home-from-home comforts after a day out exploring. For relaxing, the coffee lounge’s terrace offers views over the Solent and looks over a seafront lawn where there’s a range of outdoor games. The fun continues into the night with live music, dancing and a late bar
