Review: Our half-term break on the Isle of Wight

The Hermitage, Isle of Wight

They say a change is as good as a holiday. But actually, the thing I love most about the holiday is the change. The disruption of our usual routine. The change of scenery. And while it shouldn’t matter where we go for that change, of course, it does matter. So it’s just as well that our half-term break this month was at The Hermitage on the Isle of Wight.

This grand house boasts ten en-suite bedrooms (yes, ten!) so it’s the perfect place to book, if you fancy a multi-family holiday or you want to get the whole extended family together in one place (it’s the kind of place that has Grandma’s 70th birthday written all over it…)

From the moment we arrived at The Hermitage, I could hear laughter echoing through the house. We were there with another family – Molly (who blogs at Mother’s Always Right), Mr W, Frog (5) and their Baby Girl (16 months) and having met up with them on the ferry crossing from Southampton, our five-year-old was already firm friends with Frog by the time we got to the house. While we were being shown around, the pair of them ran off, thick as thieves, to explore. This house was made for endless games of hide and seek.
