Isle of Wight holiday recommended

People who enjoy outdoor activities such as walking have been encouraged to book an Isle of Wight holiday.

Neil Pinfield, from Droitwich in Worcestershire, had never been to the Isle of Wight before but recently won a free trip to the island in a competition.

He travelled by ferry with his partner and two friends, taking in attractions such as the Newtown Nature Reserve and the Tennyson Trail.

Mr Pinfield said the group are all keen walkers and were "really impressed" with the Isle of Wight's "brilliant" network of footpaths.

He also praised the quality of the food on the island, as well as the hospitality of local people.

As a result, Mr Pinfield has recommended that other people consider booking Isle of Wight holidays to see its attractions firsthand.

"We had a great time and would recommend a visit to anyone, especially if they like the outdoor life," he commented.

This comes after Councillor George Brown of the Isle of Wight Council hailed a new marketing campaign designed to raise the island's online profile.

He said the millions of people who use sites such as YouTube and Facebook are all "potential visitors" to the Isle of Wight.
