Love walking the Wight? Vote now!

We love the trails on the Isle of Wight.  Walking across West Wight downland is one of our very favourite things to do on the Island.  The Walking Festival is a great event, too.  We'll be on Walk the Wight for sure in 2010.

We spotted this poll and hoped you might join us in voting for the walk over Tennyson Down as your favourite walk in the South of England.  Get voting now here!

Spin across the Solent, as recommend by the Sunday Times

The Isle of Wight has been featured by the Sunday Times Travel Section as one of the top 100 holiday destinations for 2010!

Not only is the Island in the top 100, it's at Number 5 in the top 10.

Well, of course we knew how great it was, but it's always nice when a broadsheet reminds us.

It's also great to see one of Wightstay's accommodation providers get a mention, too so seeing Mersley Farm in the recommendation was good.  Full details about Mersley Farm on their site here.

Of course we don't just cycle on the Island in the summer.  Wightstay employees are still cycling to work every day even now.  Even in the winter the cycle rides outlined in the Isle of Wight Cycle Routes guidebook are great fun
