Travel offer: Isle of Wight

by Jane Hayward on Thursday, 31 January 2013

Romantic rooms Roaming peacocks form the welcome committee at six converted barns. Best for a loved-up stay is bright, contemporary Kiln Cottage (which sleeps up to four).

Dreamy days Ramble on sweeping, surf-tastic Compton Bay and spot red squirrels in Borthwood – highlighted in a Secret Wight guide (see below).

The grand gesture The flag tower of Osborne House is perfect for a romantic declaration. It can be left unlocked, with Champagne waiting at the top (pre-arrange via; from £60).

Dine a deux Log fires keep the farm's lunchtime café cosy in early spring. For a special dinner, book The Pond Café in Bonchurch.

What it costs A three/four-night break in Kiln Cottage costs from £147pp (based on two sharing), including return ferry from Portsmouth or Lymington. Call 0871-3760013 or visit
