Hi I’m Craig,
I was lucky enough to be born on the Island and was brought up in my parent’s hotel in Shanklin.
I have spent most of my life in the hospitality industry, and I genuinely get a buzz out of people having a great time when they visit the Island.
I moved to Ventnor to start a family before moving to Whitwell in 2006. I have to say that, of all the places I have lived on the Island, I like Whitwell the best.
When I first came to Whitwell with my young family, I fell in love with it. From the beautiful sun rise at the front of Summer Breeze over Whitwell’s medieval Church, and the south facing sun on my patio and garden, to the sunset over Hoy’s monument on St. Catharine’s down, I could not wish for a better place to bring up my family.
With the Islands most popular family’s attraction (Blackgang Chine) on our doorstep only being 5 minutes’ drive away, we have taken full advantage of their season ticket option over the years.
I really hope you enjoy your stay at Summer Breeze and take advantage of the many benefits Whitwell has to offer including, The Wight horse Inn, notably the oldest pub on the Island, which is less than a 5 minute walk away.
If you want your stay on the Island, to offer a great central location to the most beautiful parts of the Island, with fantastic walks and cycle routes on your doorstep, then look no further.
PS. Look out for our favourite Summer Breeze resident (Rusty the red squirrel) who visit us regularly to dine at our squirrel feeder.
