The Isle of Wight is one of the most desirable holiday destinations in the country. Situated off the south coast, it offers just enough distance for visitors to leave all their worries behind when they step on the ferry. With a journey time of just 20 minutes from the mainland, getting there couldn't be easier. The island is home to plenty of great hotels, but the best way to be sure of a good time is book with a well-known hotel brand. Eviivo offers a welcoming accommodation option on the island.
The Highdown Inn in Totland
Eviivo hotels on the Isle of Wight offer quaint and traditional accommodation options. A prime example is the Highdown Inn. The hotel is located on the far-eastern tip of the island, which puts it within range of some of the best-known attractions.
Catering for wandering ramblers and cyclists as well, the Highdown Inn serves exquisite food throughout the day. Guests can enjoy a full cooked breakfast in the mornings, and can relax in the seafood restaurant come sun-down. In the rooms, guests can expect tea and coffee making facilities, and a TV.
The Iconic Needles
The Needles are among the most iconic coastal attractions in the UK, and they're almost within touching distance of the Highdown Inn. It's not only the unusual rock formations which draw in large numbers of visitors each year, though. There's also a spectacular bay just below.
Alum Bay boasts extraordinary multi-coloured sands, and the turquoise waters are ideal for swimming in the summer months. For an added touch of novelty, visitors are taken down the steep cliff in a cable car.
Panoramic Views from Tennyson Down
Also within easy reach of the Highdown Inn is Tennyson Down, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The headland offers incredible views out in various directions, and is a very popular spot with walkers and nature-lovers alike. The headland is named after the poet, Lord Tennyson, who lived nearby. Famously, the poet spoke highly of the grassland, claiming that the clean, sea air was worth "sixpence a pint"! There can surely be few better ways to work up an appetite than by stretching your legs in this enchanting open space.
