Love is in the air

The Perfect Date on the Water

We always talk about how beautiful the Solent is, what amazing places you can visit and the brilliant restaurants you can dine at… This Valentine’s Day why not treat your special someone to a day out on the water.

This year Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday, perfect for a day out on the water coupled with dining at a restaurant on the Isle of Wight! Or perhaps you are looking to get away for the weekend and need an exciting transfer over to Cowes or Yarmouth

Check out our top 3 Rib ‘dates’ for Valentine’s Day

1. Romantic, sunset trip to the Needles

Starting from Lymington Yacht Haven, cruise up Lymington River before heading west through Hurst Narrows, past Hurst Castle towards the Needles. A Rib charter is the perfect way to enjoy both the Needles and the surrounding area. Before setting back to Lymington, why not stop by Yarmouth for a quick drink or romantic meal, looking out to the Solent.

2. Dinner at The Folly

Journey up the Medina River through endless moorings and historic boat yard to The Folly who are offering a special Valentine’s Day set menu. We also often recommend the Folly Inn not least because it has a private pier and is thus great fun to arrive at by Rib. “There is no love sincerer than the love of food” – George Bernard Shaw.

3. Overnight stay at The George

Blast over to Yarmouth and spend the evening at the beautiful 17th century townhouse The George Hotel. As well as luxurious overnight accommodation, The George also offers great dining in their brasserie style restaurant with spectacular views of the Solent. This Valentine’s Day, The George are offering a romantic set menu.
