Horse Riding on the Isle Of Wight

Set against some of Britain’s most stunning landscapes, the Isle of Wight really is a diamond in the ‘rough’ sea! Once you’ve booked your Bed and Breakfast Isle of Wight and arrived, you’ll get to experience a magnitude of activities from Llama trekking to Tree climbing (you’d be surprised just how much you can do on Isle of Wight breaks) so lets take you through a few ideas:

On Land:

Walking, of course.

The Isle of Wight is a walkers dream with over 500 miles of well-kept footpaths; you’ll get to meander through fields, forests and spectacular coastlines.

Cycling and Mountain Biking:

The Island offers a diverse terrain for you to choose from single track paths to speedy downhill Trails. Test your skills with undulating countryside and steep downhill sections. Or just have a leisurely ride around the town. No pressure!

Horse Riding:

Great hacks across country, with picnic in tow. Who could argue with that?


If you like. I’m not so sure you’ll have time on your Isle of Wight short break but some may disagree.

On Water:

Sailing – Cowes – The birthplace of yacht racing. You can’t go to the island and not try a spot of sailing.

Kite Surfing:

Fast, skilful and furious for the adrenalin junkies out there. Any takers?

On Air:

Gliding: 2, 000 feet up experience the thrill of silent flying and all the magnificent views you’ll take in of the island, cliffs and beaches.


Choose from 12 flying sites on the island that cater for all wind directions and offer a good terrain.


Choose either a pleasure flight or take the controls, how brave do you feel? Whether you like microlights, fixed wing aircraft or high tech helicopters there’s a choice for you.

On Second Thoughts:

If you don’t mind, I’ll give the whole activity thing a miss and meet you in the pub, there are plenty of decent ones to try on the island to keep me busy everyday!
