Embrace the festive feeling this holiday at one of these lovely Isle of Wight events. Each one will bring some Christmas cheer and a spring in your step, ready for Christmas on the Isle of Wight or at home with friends and family.
The Isle of Wight is really in the Christmas spirit this December and you should be too. Whether you opt for Santa specials on the steam railway with the little ones or choose to peruse the various fairs and festivals. For a dog friendly holiday, stay near the beaches of Bembridge and spend every day on the sand with your four-legged friend. Find Christmas treats and treasures in the tiny independent shops of Godshill then head to Ventnor Botanic Garden for a crisp winter walk through these beautifully kept garden exhibitions.
If you’re planning on gathering the family together for the festive season, stay in a holiday cottage that sleeps 8 or even more. Each of our Isle of Wight holiday homes has a fully equipped kitchen so you can treat your friends and family to roast dinners, freshly baked cakes and a glass of wine or even champagne (should you get chance to pick some up on your island adventures).
We still have some Isle of Wight cottages available for December, find yours now.
