It is a busy old weekend on the Isle of Wight this bank holiday. With the start of the Isle of Wight Walking Festival (Walk the Wight) along with the Randonee cycling race, everyone is out and about enjoying the fine weather.

Here’s the boats that took part in the Ventnor Races organised by Shanklin Sailing Club coming in after reaching the finishing line this morning:

Places To Visit: Steephill Cove

Just around the corner from Ventnor is a hidden gem, waiting to be explored – Steephill Cove.

The tiny fishing village is a short walk away from both Ventnor esplanade and the Botanic Gardens along the coastal path. With no cars in the village (parking is available further inland) and the paths simply covered in the shingle from the beach, when arriving in the village, you’ll feel like your stepping back in time.

Away from modern life, the huts and houses form a perfect setting for a relaxing day out. It’s a no fuss kind of place, with a few restaurants and cafes, some of which feature fresh fish caught by the fisherman of the cove, and of course, the beach.

And that’s it. But with the view, who needs any more?

Spring has most definitely sprung up at The Priory in Shanklin, as shown in this picture from earlier today.

The daffodils are out across the garden and everything is looking lovely and green in the sunny weather.

Limited weeks still available for Spring and Summer 2016.
