Good to go
Wednesday 21 September 2011
The Isle of Wight claims to have more sunshine hours than any other UK holiday spot, which makes it an appealing prospect for an early autumn holiday. Wightlink is offering a two-night break at Gotten Manor on the island's south coast for £116 per person. The price includes accommodation with breakfast and return ferry crossings (with a car) from Portsmouth to Fishbourne or Lymington to Yarmouth, on 5 October. www.wightlink.co.uk/greengetaways
