    Red Funnel Ferries are doing a deal for 5 nights including ferry and site fees for around £110 3 sites to choose from we used it 2 years ago the only problem on the IOW is car parking its very expensive and the local by-laws do not allow parkers to " eat : drink or sleep in their vehicles at any time , so a quick cuppa and a sandwich in the motorhome is out of the question to ask the question would I go back " no " :cry:

    Technically that's true. However, the council told me:

    We've been four times and really enjoyed ourselves each time. The Red Funnel deal is pretty good, as the ferry charge for our motorhome would have been ~£90 on its own (outrageous for such a short trip).

    Of the sites bundled with the deal we preferred Southlands to Orchards, but Southlands is now a CC site so no longer available with the Red Funnel offer. The CC say they're offering a package ferry-site deal too, so might be worth enquiring.

    In essence, the East Coast of the island has more amenities, the West being quieter and less developed. Having said that, the whole island is so small you can easily whizz from side to side without too much bother. Don't expect the roads to be super-smooth though - they are definitely not!

    We've always gone outside the main holiday season, which apparently gets very crowded. We're looking forward to going back again ourselves in late September/early October, by the way.
