Isle of Wight Adventure Adventure
We travelled down to the Isle of Wight via the Wightlink ferry from Portsmouth to East Cowes as a family of 5, to allow us to participate in the IOW full island Challenge (102k) in support of Macmillan.
As we were taking the diva dog the accommodation choices were limited and we decided on a Hoseasons self-catering cottage with hot tub, I have not been on a self-catering holiday for many years and the thought of going food shopping when we arrived after a long journey filled me with dread but Daddy took Minime and Diva to the beach- which was a 2-minute walk away whilst Granny and I, hit the grocery shops.
As a child, we visited the Isle of Wight every year and my Mum and Dad had plans to retire to the Island. The visit was emotional as not only were me and my husband were taking part in the IOW Challenge but my mum and I were going to spread my Dads ashes.
The accommodation comprised of two bedrooms, one double and one with 2 single beds. A large open dining room/lounge with 6 seater dining table and 2 sofas with TV/DVD.
With a fully stocked Kitchen which had everything you needed such as oven, microwave, kettle, pots/pans etc.
We were delighted to use the hot tub after the challenge and Minime thought it was the best thing ever having his own personal mini pool. It was convenient as we always had the dog with us and she had lots of space to run around in the back garden.
The resort had a large heated indoor pool, children’s playground and with a 2-minute walk to the beach it was perfectly placed.
We were proud to be in the top 5% of fundraisers for Macmillan in 2016 and this is something we want to continue.
