Isle of Wight Autumn Walking Festival

Isle of Wight Walking Festival Break at Luccombe Manor Country House Hotel, ShanklinISLE OF WIGHT WALKING FESTIVAL BLOG

by Justin Gladdis


With the long nights drawing in and those Christmas treat temptations not too far away now, October is as good a month as any to get more active, lose weight and become healthier.


Walking is ideal for all of us, whatever age and fitness levels.
And the Isle of Wight and in particular Luccombe Manor in Shanklin, provide the perfect opportunity for you to sample the fresh air of Autumn in the most gorgeous surroundings.


The 15th Annual Isle of Wight Walking Festival takes place between Friday 25th October - Monday 28th October. Boasting an extensive programme for 2013, there's a lot of great new walks and events. In fact, there are over 250 walks to suit all ages and abilities, with the Isle of Wight being the perfect location for you to don your walking boots. Half of the island is recognised as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and you will be spoilt for choice of where to step out first with miles upon miles of well maintained footpaths.


And what about the perfect place to stay during the festival? Well, Luccombe Manor Country House Hotel in Shanklin is set in a stunning location on the cliff tops. You are just 2 minutes walk away from the hustle and bustle of Shanklin Old Village, with Luccombe Manor offering more indoor and outdoor facilities than any other Isle of Wight hotel as well having direct access to the sandy shanklin beach below.......perfect if you fancy a crisp walk along the seafront to neighbouring Sandown.
The Appley Restaurant serves that hearty breakfast to fill you up before you set out for your long walk and you won't want to miss out on the fine dining when you return at the end of the day.


If your feet are sore, or your skin needs some TLC, you can really pamper yourself at Utopia Spa, beautifully located in Melville Hall Hotel in Sandown.
You will feel totally refreshed, re-energised, re-invigorated and re-newed as you enjoy a wide range of Spa and Beauty Treatment. Melville Hall boasts an indoor and outdoor pool, hot tub, Spacuzzi, Sauna and Detox Cabins.
You can select from a wide variety of treatments ranging from indulgent massages and de-toxifying body wraps to beautifying facials and holistic therapies, all professionally designed to help you relax and revitalise.


The success of Isle of Wight Walking Festival is quite remarkable. It has grown from 39 walks in the programme to more than 250.
Walking is a healthy enjoyable activity and an environmentally friendly means of transport, so step out and discover the Island in the Isle of Wight Walking Festival, whilst enjoying your much deserved rest at Luccombe Manor.
