Situated just off the south coast of England, the Isle of Wight is the UK’s paradise island. This exquisite isle was recently crowned a UNESCO Biosphere and offers a stunning array of contrasting landscapes to see, as well as an extensive list of things to do and experience.
You’ll be staying on the outskirts of Godshill, within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village of Godshill is renowned for its pretty thatched cottages, 14th century church, and idyllic tea gardens.
At the start of this holiday, we meet at Portsmouth Harbour (on the mainland) to take any potential pressure off of navigating the ferry on your own.
Your accommodation is in one of the most beautiful parts of the island. You’ll stay in a luxury barn conversion on a working livestock farm, in a hamlet near the picturesque village of Godshill. Set deep in nature, the accommodation is a sympathetic blend of the traditional and the innovative, and a spectacular example of modern rural architecture in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Here you’ll find peace and tranquillity.
The barn is level access, making it accessible to people with restricted mobility. Most of the bedrooms are ‘zip and link’, meaning the beds can be made up as either two Twins or one King at your request. One bedroom is King only. All have ensuite shower rooms, accessed by a small step. There is also a separate, fully-accessible wet room that is available for use by all.
The owner cooks your meals daily using locally-sourced food, allowing our team to spend more time with you enjoying all of the sights that the island offers.
Pocket-sized yet perfect, the Isle of Wight offers plenty of activities to suit all tastes. Activities could include wandering along beautiful beaches or through the majestic rooms of Osborne House, speeding along the coast in a speedboat, or visiting with docile donkeys at the nearby Donkey Sanctuary. Alongside all of this, there will be opportunities to feed the animals on the farm, as well as to generally relax and enjoy the beauty of the countryside location.
Every holiday with Dementia Adventure is unique! Your itinerary may vary depending on the date, and will be released to you in good time before your departure — usually about two to three weeks prior.
