Wightlink Ferries, the ferry company of choice for those travelling to and from the Isle of Wight, has launched its winter “Room to Breathe” campaign, which will run until end-March 2015. Focussing on inspiring and promoting travel to the Isle of Wight during the off-peak months, the campaign showcases the vast range of accommodation, wide open spaces and off-peak activities available across the Island.
Mark Persad, Head of Marketing, Wightlink Ferries, said: “The winter months offer a new dimension to the Isle of Wight; there are less crowds, open spaces, unspoilt beaches, homely pubs and restaurants and some superb local cultural festivals and independent shopping.
“It is perfect for families during the off-peak season, particularly those with young children who don’t wish to travel too far for their great escape, whilst also suiting couples who are looking for that peaceful retreat from the daily grind. The winter Isle of Wight offers an uplifting and invigorating experience that should not be missed and we hope Wightlink will be showing this to more visitors this season.”
Those looking to escape the mainland with their families for some room to breathe during the colder months can now take advantage of family weekend breaks priced from £265. This price includes return ferry travel and 3 nights stay for up to six people at the Old Mill Holiday Park’s Pine Cabin in St Helens in January. For a family of four, this works out to be just £22 per person per night.
Couples seeking a romantic getaway during January can travel and stay on the Isle of Wight with Wightlink and The Hambrough from £365. Including return ferry travel, two night weekend stay in an executive room, full English breakfast, cream tea with prosecco and a two course meal for two; couples can retreat to this luxury boutique accommodation to enjoy unrivalled views of the sea above the fishing harbour in Ventnor.
When planning a trip to the Island, travellers should look no further than Wightlink’s special edition of its lifestyle guide to the inside track on the Island, “Wightlife”. For the first time ever “Wightlife” can be downloaded through Apple Store, Google Play, Amazon and at www.wightlink.co.uk/wightlife for on-the-go holiday research and planning.
And, if that doesn’t offer enough inspiration, holiday planners can see the number of winter activities available across the Island for themselves in Wightlink’s ‘Room to breathe’ video series. The videos can be viewed on the dedicated Room to Breathe website page: www.wightlink.co.uk/roomtobreathe
