Located off the southern coast of England, the
Isle of Wight is a 35 minute ferry ride from the port of Lymington. The Isle of Wight
offers golden beaches, forests and open meadows as well as gardens and historic
sites. Carisbrooke Castle is a majestic medieval ruin. Osborne House, near Cowes,
was built as Queen Victoria's country retreat and Yarmouth is a seductive port with narrow lanes and stone quays. Walking highlights include a path
through Afton Nature Reserve and along an old railway line, a walk along the
coast climbing through woodland to the Neolithic Long Stone.
Classic Walking Holidays operate weekly starting Saturdays from April
through October. Walkers stay at the same hotel for seven nights. Days start and
end with a short bus ride so the walks are in the most spectacular parts of the
island. Three different guided walks are offered each day. You choose
according to your fitness and ability.
