A perfect weekend getaway
Summer on the Isle of Wight
At last. We finally have some great weather and as always, Summer is such a wonderful time of the year. When the sun shines, everyone feels good. As we step out of our office, Ryde beach stretches out for miles, only a short distance away. We finally see the island coming back to life after what feels like a long winter. We are lucky that many clients choose to combine their appointment with a little time on the island. There are so many different areas to explore, but Ryde’s greatest feature is a very long stretch of golden sand, adjoining small seaside villages around the coast.
If you’re planning on visiting the island for a full weekend, taking the car ferry from Gunwharf to Fishbourne would be a good move (although expect to pay more for bringing the car across on the ferry). Alternatively, we are a stone’s throw from the Hovercraft in Ryde (from Southsea as shown above), so taking this 10 minute short journey makes a great deal of sense.
Finally, if you are planning on staying, feel free to pick our brains for local hotels and places to eat. We have our favourites and are always happy to make suggestions. Book early though, since weekends and holidays are popular for both appointments and for accommodation on the island.
