One of the great ways to explore the area around Turnstone is by bicycle, whether you bring them along or hire them, there are cycling routes galore for all levels of ability. A nice easy route to start with takes you along the river all the way into Newport, ideal for younger ones as it is safely away from the roads. You will pass The Folly pub and The Breeze Restaurant in Island Harbour, both great family friendly places to eat with outdoor seating. The Folly is a rustic pub perched on the banks of the River Medina, they have a superb large outdoor patio with a stunning backdrop of the river, where you can enjoy your meal and admire the boats going by. Osborne House is also within walking distance, the former royal residence built for Queen Victoria and Prince Albert as a summer home and rural retreat. There is an enormous amount to see and do in the house and stunning surrounding gardens, a whole day out is needed or two! Cowes, the famous yachting town, is a short drive away or cycle via the East Cowes floating bridge. Cowes has many boutique shops, restaurants and cafes, take a stroll down through the town to the seafront and soak up the atmosphere. Further along the coast is the seaside town of Gurnard, here there is a shingle beach and great views across the Solent and boasting some of the best sunsets you are likely to find. At the eastern end of the seafront is a popular cafe and restaurant with an all-important window ice cream service!
