The Isle of Wight is an ideal location with plenty to do and easy driving. Blandings is comfy and has large clean rooms on the ground... More

Blandings is a beautiful place to stay out in the country and has easy access to all the attractions. The owners are lovely and go out of their way to accomodate you and the breakfast is lovely. We stayed in the B & B which was very clean and very comfortable. will definitely be going back.
