The Grange

What's included?

Our New Year holiday is all about abundance, the price includes:

  • Three nights twin share accommodation in our 4* Georgian country house, The Grange
  • All meals, tailored to dietary requirements
  • All activities, courses, events, games and New Year's Eve party


The easiest way to reach The Grange is usually by train. Request Shanklin as your destination point and your ticket will include the 15-minute crossing by catamaran from Portsmouth Harbour to Ryde. At Ryde, the FastCat is met by the connecting island train which takes you on to Shanklin in 20 minutes. Outside Shanklin station, take a cab for the 3-minute journey to Eastcliff Road.

If, instead, you decide to drive then you can book your crossing from either Portsmouth Harbour to Fishbourne with Wightlink Ferries or Southampton to Cowes with Red Funnel Ferries. Call us in case we have a discount voucher for your ferry travel.

There are several ways to get in touch, and we'd love to hear from you…
