The latest Government advice is that you can now freely travel to our resorts in England, so pack up the car, enjoy your journey to us and then relax on your holiday.

Just to remind you, you will be required to wear a face covering while travelling on the ferry to the island. This is in line with the Government's advice for face coverings to be worn on all public transport.

For more information about your ferry travel, please take a look at the Red Funnel and Wightlink websites to check their crossing advice and the safety measures in place.

As per the announcement from HM Government on 08.07.20, VAT will decrease from 20% to 5% to help the hospitality industry recover from the impact of the pandemic, it is designed to help with cash flow and the payment of bills to our suppliers etc, and we are grateful for this assistance having been closed for over three months. 

VAT is chargeable at the point of invoice so invoices prior to the 16.07.2020 will still carry a 20% VAT burden that we have to pay.  

Our holiday prices are a fully inclusive rate of all taxes and we do not invoice VAT separately

We are committed to providing the most competitive value for money across the range of accommodation and resorts that we offer. We will continue to always provide great savings and offers throughout the year for all our guests, and the VAT change will help with this and for our industry recover! 

Please keep an eye out for our email promotions or visit our offers page for more details.
