Lovely stay in this comfortable B & B - particularly loved spending time in the lounge watching the activity on the water - very relaxing and great, friendly hospitality from Wendy and Paul. If you fancy a 'quirky' b & b give this a try - you won't be disappointed.

We found this place on the Isle of Wight website, and fancied something a little different to the norm. Both the Mrs & me had a very enjoyable stay on the Xoron. Although being very quirky, it was loads of fun and I spent most of the 4 days ducking being a 6ft 5in tall bloke. Every morning we was... More
