Motorhome destination of the month: Isle of Wight

bf4a795c-3d5a-45a1-a438-c56db55123af

This small but perfectly formed island is just perfect for campervan adventures! It's easily accessible by ferry and there are plenty of campsites to stay at while you're there, so visiting really is a doddle. 

Whatever the time of year, there's loads to see and do, too. From cosy tea shops and enticing ice cream parlours, to top-notch music festivals and kite surfing, there's something for everyone.

Of course, the iconic spots like the Needles and Alum Bay are well worth a visit, as is the Isle of Wight's capital, Newport, with its magnificent castle. Or maybe you fancy some fun at the zoo?
