Isle of Wight 'like stepping into a Famous Five adventure'

Isle of Wight holidays could become increasingly popular among fans of the Famous Five series of books.

A spot on the island has been described by a national newspaper as being like the location from one of the Enid Blyton novels for children.

According to a report by the Daily Telegraph, Steephill Cove gives visitors the chance to "sit with sand between your toes and eat lobster or crab pasties".

It added the Spyglass Inn, which can be found in Ventnor, is one of the top ten seaside pubs in the UK, which could encourage tourists on Isle of Wight holidays to check it out.

Ice cream lovers will also be happy, as island-based manufacturer Minghella's was also singled out for praise by the news provider.

The company offers a wide range of different flavours, including banana daiquiri, Christmas pudding, raspberry ripple romance, tropical fruit cocktail and crushed strawberries and cream.
