Isle of Wight stay with sweeping bay views, includes breakfast, a three-course dinner and return car ferry

Overflowing with scenic beauty and oozing quaint character, the Isle of Wight, just a short ferry hop from England's south coast seems a world apart from the mainland. Packing a seriously impressive punch into a relatively small size, here you'll find sweeping sandy beaches, sheltered coves for swimming and mile upon mile of walking and cycling trails. Perched atop Shanklin's cliffs on the island's south coast sits Luccombe Manor Country House Hotel, a worthy holder of a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. Boasting panoramic 180-degree views across the sweep of Sandown Bay, this grand Victorian pile is surrounded by beautifully kept gardens leading directly to the cliff edge.

The hotel's manicured lawns house a lovely outdoor hot tub, perfect for relaxing with a glass of bubbly. Beyond are the Grand View Tea Rooms, boasting some of the best vistas on the island. Climb down the cliff via a steep flight of steps directly to the beach, where to the left beckon the bustling delights of Shanklin seafront. At low tide, you can walk in the other direction around the cliffs to the deserted wilds of Luccombe beach, with only seabirds and the odd dog walker for company. Back at the hotel, enjoy a tasty dinner of locally-sourced fare in the restaurant.

Good to know

Please note, the Grand View Tea Rooms are only open during the summer months, as is the outdoor pool.
