THE ISLE OF WIGHT

Why did you choose to set up The Grange on the Isle of Wight?
The Isle of Wight is a beautiful green island just two hours journey from London. Crossing the water feels like a clear break away from everyday routines. The island itself, despite its laid-back style, is a hotbed of activity. There are outdoor sports and activities as well as the many island festivals such as walking, cycling, sailing and music. Check our Links page to see what's going on locally. The Grange is in Shanklin on the south east coast of the island, which boasts the best weather in the UK so it's a welcoming destination all year round.
