Isle of Wight Trek, 6 days walking around the coast (July 2022)

A six day and seven nights walking holiday with (aunty) Mary and John Taylor.

We stayed at the Villa Mentone Hotel in Shanklin, which sits near the cliff above the beach.

Each walking day we took a bus from Shanklin to the start point. The weather was usually warm and sunny, though on Day 2 there was a fairly strong wind coming from the sea.

There were a few alterations to the schedule, but we covered nearly all of the official Coastal Path except for the inaccessible stretch between Yarmouth and Cowes.

Social stop and overnight hotel in Maidenhead (Friday).
Social stop near Fleet (Saturday).
Ferry from Southampton to Cowes (Saturday).
