STORM KATIE | CHARGE UP OR HIRE A TWIZY | C4 FOUR IN A BED | ISLAND VISITORS | TRICERATOPS
We experienced Storm Katie's full force over the Easter weekend but we're still here standing!
Unfortunately our lovely new Chicken coop was obliterated across the walled garden area, literally being smashed into pieces, from this...
Still this has not put us off creating our organic garden using permaculture practices.
Thankfully the chickens hadn't moved into the new coop!
We are very proud to have teamed up with 'Hire a Twizy' - Isle of Wight'. A fun way to experience the island without damaging our precious environment here on the island.
We will be offering exciting packages to make your stay even more enjoyable. Why not team up your stay with us with a paragliding flight and a Twizy hire?
It takes about 3 hours to fully charge a Twizy so why not book in for a flight while you wait (weather permitting, advance bookings only in peak season)?
Contact us now for details.

Drivers are required to hold a valid driving licence, Twizy insurance and over 21yrs
We were also featured on Channel 4's 'Four in a Bed' programme - Episode 18, Series 2
It's all about having fun here at Sunacre on the Isle of Wight! Easter weekend started really well on Good Friday with beautiful blue skies and warm sunshine.
We think we may have convinced some guests to come back in the summer to assist with our volunteer programme, and what a way for them to see what the island has to offer!
New visitors (approx 80,000 of them) have mainly come from high demographic groups in and around London and the home counties.
At Butterfly Paragliding we think it's because Londoners, in particular, are searching for something different from a UK holiday and can also find some solace from the hustle and bustle of a busy city centre. Our location in the south of the island is perfect for some real peace and quiet, more guaranteed sunshine hours, and we have such little light pollution here you'll be amazed at how many more stars you can see in the night sky!
By now, most people on the Isle of Wight would have seen the fantastic Dino photo taken by Chris Hollingshead on Saturday morning of a giant Triceratops blocking the road in Godshill.
The photo whizzed around social media in no time at all, but it’s now gone further afield, to whizz around the globe.
As well as making the national newspapers, The Telegraph, Independent, Mirror, Daily Mail, Metro and the BBC, the story is now being featured Internationally with KSAT San Antonio;
It’s also being featured in a plethora of blogs around the world, as well as hitting Twitter’s Moments and other Tweets
Ideally call us the day before (and definitely before you set off) to check our flying weather forecast - then you can get super-excited if we're 'on'!
