The absolute peak of the Festival season next year will no doubt (we’re slightly biased) be The Isle of Wight Festival, which returns to Seaclose Park in Newport again on Thursday 11th June for another 4 day weekend, filled with plenty of Music, Glitter, Wellies, Fancy Dress, silly Hats and multitude of different acts, from local to international artists. You won’t see a festival like this anywhere else!
The Isle of Wight Festival has a rich history dating back to 1968, and is famous for hosting one of the last performances by Jimi Hendrix in 1970. A Statue of Hendrix commemorates the event and can been seen at Dimbola Lodge in Freshwater, close to the original festival site at Afton Downs.
Whilst camping is a big part of the Festival experience, the idea of sleeping in a field with limited heating, washing and toilet facilities, isn’t everyone’s idea of a great time, so why get the best of both worlds and find a holiday cottage nearby. Having somewhere to be able to retreat to and recharge at the end of each day could make a huge difference to your festival experience.
We are currently offering short breaks of 3 or 4 nights with a late checkout on the Monday. We can also offer discounted car ferry travel with all bookings.
If you require and local advice on how best to get the most out of your festival weekend, please give us a call.
