People 'still finding money for Isle of Wight holidays'

Consumers are still finding the money to pay for Isle of Wight holidays, despite the current economic climate.

This is the view of Ric Hilton, owner of The Enchanted Manor B&B in Niton, who said his establishment has been receiving plenty of bookings.

Speaking to BBC News, he said this could be partly because people are becoming increasingly hopeful that the UK economy is picking up.

"There's optimism out there," Mr Hilton commented.

"And you know obviously people have got that money to spend."

The Enchanted Manor could be a good place to stay in the Isle of Wight, after TripAdvisor placed it sixth on its list of the best B&Bs in Europe.

This is not the first time the establishment has secured a top award, as it was named the Funkiest B&B in the UK by the AA two years ago.

It is located in easy reach of Newport, Ventnor and Shanklin, and also has its own attractions on site, including private gardens and woodlands.
