Exclusive to Vision Getaways!!!!! 
When you think it would be nice to go back in time, your memory takes you to a world where the pressures of life seem miles away, where strangers pass you in the street and say ‘Good Morning’, where life in general jogs along at a much more civilised pace. We are going to take you to that place, but in reality, as there is a corner of the United Kingdom where all of these special things are still cherished. We are going to take you to the beautiful Isle of Wight, where time has moved on little since the 1950’s! Join us on this magical trip. 
 
Day One: Your day will start at your local pick-up point where your friendly Driver and Tour Manager will meet you and get your luggage on board our luxury coach, once settled in, that’s it, as with Vision Getaways there are no feeder coaches to lengthen the journey time. With all your fellow holidaymakers on board it’s time to head off to the south coast. There will be plenty of comfort stops along the way and we will arrive at the Ferry port around lunch time to enable ourselves to enjoy the short hope across the Solent on to the Isle of Wight. (Specific crossing not yet finalised) Once on the Island we will head for the little coastal town of Cowes, famous with the yachting fraternity, and the Best Western New Holmwood Hotel. Our home from home for this short break. Once settled in to your room there’s just enough time to discover the immediate area before a delicious dinner, your first of many, then a drink at the bar before retiring to your comfortable room. 
 
Day Two: After a lovely breakfast and a chance to see the sun rising over the Solent it’s time to re-board our coach to start our island discovery, in the short time we will be on the Island we will discover everything from quaint little villages to traditional seaside towns all with something very different and special to offer. As usual with Vision Getaways there will be surprises to enhance your Island discovery and by the end of our first day you will already have relaxed and you will really feel at home. Back at the Hotel the chef will have prepared a great choice of dishes for dinner, so sit down and enjoy, talking about the day just gone. Maybe time for a stroll along the beach front? Why not it’s just outside your door!! 
 
Day Three: Today is a semi free day as today you will have the option either to do your own thing or take our optional excursion to Osbourne House. For those not taking the excursion you can wonder down to the harbour front of Cowes, just a short walk away. Why not get the local bus to some of the busier areas? Or just relax around the Hotel with a good book and watch the World go by. For those of you taking the excursion we will whisk you for to a World of Royalty and grandeur as of course Osbourne House was the summer home of Her Majesty Queen Victoria. See how she spent her summers at this amazing retreat and discover yet another face of this wonderful Island, before heading back for dinner at the Hotel. 
 
Day Four: The last full day on the Island and we take you again to see yet more and today we will include one of the sights that really is synonymous with the area, we are going to take you to ‘the needles’. Over century’s The Needles’ have been a hazard for seafarers, now though they are a stunning symbol of the Isle of Wight itself. Take the chairlift to get up close and personal (at guests expense) or simply marvel and their beauty from a clifftop vantage point. Also included in today’s trip will be a chance to visit Isle of Wight Pearl, your chance to take a memento home of this fantastic break. With all this to take in it will soon be time to head back to the Hotel for your final dinner, a sumptuous meal prepared by the talented kitchen staff. Then why not take a drink on the terrace and watch the Cruise ships sailing by! 
 
Day Five: After a hearty Breakfast it’s time to say ‘cheerio’ to the New Holmwood as we depart for our short crossing back to the mainland. Our journey will be over before you know it and you’ll be taking home memories that will last for many a year. New memories, New friends and a whole lot more!!
