Walking Festival Isle of Wight – Saturday 7th May to Sunday 15th May

isle of Wight walking festival 2022

My walks!

  1. Saturday 7th May Freshwater Figure of 8 Loop, from Fort Victoria 9 miles allow 5 – 6 hours
  2. Sunday 8th May Ventnor to St. Lawrence Circular 6 miles around 5 hours
  3. Saturday 14 May Colwell, Totland, Alum Bay Linear (Coastal Path) 3 miles (around 2 hours)
  4. Sunday 15 May Carisbrooke Castle Circular from Priory up onto Tennyson Trail 5 – 6 miles, 3 – 4 hours.

Just a couple of days to go – so excited! The weather is looking reasonable at the moment – though having walked the Freshwater loop last Sunday in continuous rain, I have to say it’s still enjoyable come rain or shine! Fingers crossed its shine on the day!

I will be going on other walk leaders’ walks the other days which I know from experience will be great. So good to mix with the walking fraternity!

I will obviously report back afterwards – though I already have a mention in Hampshire Living which gave me quite a buzz!

My walks are all fully booked but there have been cancellations so its worth asking if you wish to join me.

Otherwise, if you wish to join my mailing list to be kept updated on walking plans, then do drop me a line on sue@plays-r-ussell.com or on the Newsletter section of this website.

We both had a great day on Sunday, really enjoyed the smugglers walk it was well organised, informative and fun. We particularly enjoyed the steep path up to the cliff top where we were rewarded with magnificent views and were treated to a peak of a seal and an osprey! Loved it Chris & Joy x

I did ask the Isle of Wight Walking Festival organisers to rate how I performed at their event and I am happy to say it was as follows: Sue is a wonderful Walk Leader. She was great to work with during the Isle of Wight Walking Festival this summer and hosted three different – and interesting – walks for us. Sue is hugely engaging, fun and plans special and carefully thought-out routes, with the best views (…and the best pubs!). Walking with Sue is a lovely experience and a fantastic way to explore the Island – and discover some hidden gems. Sarah and Jo, Co Project Managers IWWF21

First I was a visitor, then I started up a holiday let and as of 2021 I became a resident. So this year was my first year participating in the Isle of Wight Walking Festival and the hidden gem of the festival was Sue. Her walks showed me parts of the Island that I never knew existed, showed me the bountiful natural beauty of this Island and taught me about smugglers. Sue has shown me how much fun walking is and well I am now addicted. Therefore I would highly recommend Sue as as walking leader and I will be recommending her walks to my future guests.
