Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson share New Year's Eve -- again

January 3, 2011 | 12:41 pm

Kristen Stewart and Robert PattinsonKristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson likely wouldn't be the types to rage out in Las Vegas or jet off to Cabo to ring in the new year -- but that shouldn't suggest they don't love a getaway.

For the second year, the "Twilight" stars enjoyed some time off together on England's Isle of Wight, a large and lovely resort town right off the mainland. 

Clad in jeans and black jackets, Pattinson and Stewart surfaced several times at the Isle's Spyglass Inn (the irony) lunching on New Year's Eve, then returning for a spot of music and the countdown with a group of friends that evening.

The on-screen lovers returned the next day, where according to People they were recognized by "several fans." 

So why this rather obscure location, for two years running?

One possibility is England-native Pattinson's love of music. The island has a legendary rock festival, with roots in classic rock performances from the likes of Jimi Hendrix. There's also plenty of draw for romantics -- Queen Victoria's gorgeous Osborne House is situated on Wight as well. 

Tell us your thoughts on the two's New Year's tradition in the comments section below.
