1/16 Adgestone, Isle of Wight
Is the Isle of Wight exciting for kids? It’s nicknamed ‘Bicycle Island’, and home to the UK’s first dinosaur museum. The 57 mile-round coast includes 17 Blue Flag beaches, and the family-friendly Isle of Wight Festival has been going longer than Glastonbury. In fact, it could only be more exciting, if you were glamping minutes from long, golden sands. Luckily, Ready Camp’s Adgestone site in Sandown has that covered too.
