The Taverners, Godshill, Isle of Wight

Mmmmm, feeling really sleepy after a delicious birthday lunch at The Taverners, Godshill. Defeated by their amazing Lemon Meringue! What better way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon 🙂 Love their dedication to using only seasonal Island produce. A must if you’re visiting. Thanks Grandad! xxx http://www.thetavernersgodshill.co.uk/

Ventnor is one of our favourite places on the Island. Definitely a Caledon recommendation for a day out: mooch round the Botanical Gardens, lunch in the cafe there, gorgeous chunky sarnies and lovely risotto. Kids loved the playground and feeding the fish. Walk along the coastal path to Ventnor beach with breathtaking sea views, passing through the idyllic Steephill Cove – a real gem of a place. Minghella ice cream on the esplanade and a paddle in the sea. One great day out, thank you Continue reading →

As a guest recently pointed out, a great way to get directly from Cowes to Newport is the cycle path, a flat 4 mile track that starts just up the road from The Caledon. It follows the old railway track and is really pretty in places looking out over the River Medina and completely avoids the traffic on the Newport Road.

Mountain boarding with Isle of Wight Adventure Activities in Freshwater last Friday was fab! It was a gorgeous sunny morning looking over the bay and such fun, we would definitely recommend having a go with friends. A delicious pub lunch at The Red Lion in Freshwater afterwards was well deserved too – lots of tumbles and walking back up the hill was hungry work! Note – we all had very sore muscles the next day! Isle of Wight Adventure Activities have a great range of Continue reading →
