One-fifty


Wonderful hospitality and food on the Isle of Wight.

Staying at One-fifty B& B on the Isle of Wight was a delight. The owner Paula picked us up from the station and made us feel very welcome in her home. All the details were perfect from the fresh flowers in your room, the pretty handmade soaps in the toilet, the Egyptian cotton bathrobes and the lovely d├ęcor. You felt immediately at home and very comfortable. The weekend consisted of cycling, I didn’t realise how hilly the island was –I did walk up a few hills with bike in tow, eating – at the local pubs and restaurants and just enjoying the sunshine and slower pace of life.

Breakfast at 150 was divine with fresh strawberries and melon, yoghurt, muesli and a lovely selection of organic egg choices. Their lovely sun room is the perfect place to start your day and as you can see from the pics you get a delicious breakfast, freshly cooked. I highly recommend visiting the island and cycling around or walking some of the lovely coastal or inland paths, the hospitality can’t be beat and it is a short jaunt from London and just far enough to feel like you have been ‘away’.
