Reasons for trip


What a great break we had at Norton Grange in spite of the wet weather which stayed around all week. We travelled with Harry Shaw City Cruisers and after an early start the journey down to Lymington and ferry crossing to Yarmouth all went very well and we arrived at lunch time. Greeted by friendly staff we were soon unpacking in our chalet. Our standard was clean, warm and comfortable with all the amenities expected of Warner's, but most of the chalets are a bit of a walk to the complex. We had a quick tour of the facilities – a very pleasant waterfront lounge with plenty of seating and outside terrace with superb views over the Solent. The Mariners Ballroom where we enjoyed first class entertainment later and was filled to capacity every night and the well appointed Castaways Restaurant. There is also a lovely spa and swimming pool.

We have always enjoyed good food at Warner's and they certainly came up to expectations. Delicious carveries and a good menu choice. Service was excellent and the restaurant was beautifully decorated for "Christmas". Breakfast was something to look forward to with so much to choose from. The evening entertainment usually started with a quiz, bingo (vg prizes and short sessions!), dancing and then the resident band and team performed some great music and dance. They produced the panto Aladdin one afternoon which was very professional. Such talent.

Norton Grange is a short walk to the interesting little town of Yarmouth. There is an old church off the square and along the narrow streets art galleries, boutique and gift shops,pubs and restaurants. There is a regular bus service from the resort to Alum Bay and Newport. We had some included excursions – the first one to Alum Bay and the Needles but it was heavy rain so nobody left the coach. We then drove over to the hilly resort of Ventnor, but again no change in the weather and only a brave few ventured forth. We enjoyed our next excursion to the charming village of Godshill. The model village was closed for the winter but there were plenty of delightful gift shops and cafes open.

The entertainment guide was full of activities and a movie matinee too. One could always relax in the lounge where a quiz may be held or a singer in Late Night Live. We really believe that Warner's Turkey and Tinsel breaks are hard to beat.
