The Isle of Wight has long been known as The Garden Isle and it is noted for its warm climate & stunning scenery

From sandy beaches through wooded glades to bracing hills, The Isle of Wight landscape is very diverse, and since 1963, about half of the Isle of Wight has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. One of the richest wildlife counties in lowland Britain & supports an astonishing range of flora and fauna. A climate similar to the Mediterranean means a wide variety of plants flourish too tender for mainland Britain.
