Isle of Wight holidays receive ash cloud boost

More people could soon be tempted to take Isle of Wight holidays after a pair of journalists chose to review the island as they were stranded in the UK.

The volcanic ash cloud hovering over Europe has prevented many people from leaving the country and writers Lage Stone and Hans Rooth decided to make the most of their extended trip to British shores.

They took an Isle of Wight holiday after contacting the Isle of Wight Council and the pair will detail their trip in Scandinavian magazines.

Ms Stone said: "The nature is outrageously beautiful and I know the beaches and scenery will appeal to our readers."

She added that the pair had enjoyed a meal at The Old Fort in Seaview.

People on Isle of Wight holidays who wish to follow in the footsteps of Ms Stone and Mr Rooth and have a meal at The Old Fort will find the restaurant offers views across the Solent. ADNFCR-3083-ID-19735914-ADNFCR
