Isle of Wight Reports
Shorwell, Isle of Wight
Review of Shorwell by Jason Smith on May 16th, 2006
Shorwell is a gorgeous little village which is a great get away from all the stress of city life. I stayed in a wonderful little b&b called the lychgate (www.geocities.com/thelychgate). Im a keen walker and found Shorwell to be a great base to explore the island. The Crown Inn comes highly recommmended as the food is super.
So I was getting into my car, and this bloke says to me "Can you give me a lift?" I said "Sure, you look great, the world's your oyster, go for it." - Tommy Cooper
