Sheepshill Cove on Isle of Wight

20 reasons to visit Isle of Wight with kids

There’s something special about Isle of Wight. BritMums is a big fan of the little island that’s only 1 hour away from the mainland but feels like both a delightful throwback to a simpler time (beaches, countryside, boats) as well as a destination that speaks to modern families (active fun, good food, funky accommodations).

Happiness Round-up: Celebrating you
