7 perfect pads for Isle of Wight Pride

Now in its second year, Isle of Wight Pride has gone from not having a Pride organization to hosting the official UK Pride 2018. What’s more, it’s the only UK Pride festival to take place on a beach!

Such an amazing celebration deserves an equally incredible place to stay, so here are seven amazing properties on the Isle of Wight – all currently available for Pride and beyond.

St Rhadagunds near Ventnor

Firstly, the ultimate Pride party pad. This luxury property sleeps 10 happy holidaymakers, has its own outdoor hot tub, lovely patio and large garden.

Enjoy views towards the English Channel from king-size bedrooms, and relax and enjoy complete comfort. There are few better pre and post Pride places to be!

Suite 1 at Claremont House, Sandown

Sea views and complete relaxation are the order of the day at this first floor suite. One of several properties at the same location, Claremont House offers a fully equipped gym and six-seater hot tub.

Sleeping two, you will find wonderfully welcoming accommodation just 400 yards from the beach.

Westbrook, Brook

A delightful historic hideaway, previous visitors to this location include Henry VII, Winston Churchill and Queen Mary. Even better, today you will find a greater level of comfort and convenience at the property – with Wi-Fi and wonderful soft furnishings.

Let’s face it, none of history’s famous visitors had the enjoyment of Pride to recover from, did they?    

Loreto, Middleton, Freshwater

Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the Isle’s western side, you will find plenty of wonderful walking trails, beaches and scenic beauty.

A summerhouse at the property offers a pool table and dartboard and there’s loads of comfort for up to four guests. It’s also dog-friendly if you fancy treating Fido!

Shergar, The Island Riding Centre, Newport

As the name suggests, this property – one of several at the location – is situated on an equestrian riding complex offering facilities and lessons for horse riders of all ages and abilities.

Even if you don’t fancy a spell in the saddle, you will find a fantastic, tranquil location with amazing accommodation for six.

Little Croxley near Ventnor

A beautiful bijoux retreat for two, Little Croxley offers the perfect Pride retreat with comfort both inside and out. You will find a welcome pack, Wi-Fi and wonderful furnishings.

The garden offers a seating area, BBQ and furniture for relaxing. Head out and you will find a pub just 300 yards away plus the beach is only a mile.  

Horizon Retreat, Ventnor

Finally, Horizon Retreat: the sea views from this end of terrace cottage are simply stunning. Seriously, there are few better views to wake to! If you fancy a closer look then the Victorian seaside town of Ventnor is just half a mile away.

Inside the property you will find everything you need to enjoy an amazing break and an amazing Pride!
