The location of attractions is intended only as a guide. Distances are 'as the crow flies'.

Nearest pub

The Steamer Inn (300 yards)

A popular sea front inn with a large terrace and views across Sandown Bay. Inside the decor is decidedly nautical with a giant propeller by the front door and fisherman's glass floats on the veranda. Children and dogs are welcome. Live music plays and details of this are on their website.

Nearest beach

Shanklin Beach (¼ mile)

A safe and sandy beach with lots of nearby parking. A real traditional bucket and spade destination with amusements, crazy golf and go-carting nearby. With a high sea wall and pavement promenade this is an idea place for a stroll with views over the English Channel. Dogs are not allowed between May to the end of September. The beach has life guards during high season.

Nearest walk

Groves and Gardens Histree Trail (¼ mile)

This trail, kindly available to download from iwight.com, has two distance options; either just over three miles or just over four. You can explore groves, gardens and ancient woodland. You'll find plenty of places to stop off for a break and some lovely views.

Nearest town

Shanklin (¾ mile)

A town so large it is split into two, the old and the new, Shanklin is perched on the south west coast. The new part of town is what you'd expect from a lovely seaside town, with a theatre at its heart that we'd thoroughly recommend. But wander out to the old time and you'll feel a world away - in another century! But in the best possible way, with cream teas and thatched cottages as well as old inns.

Also nearby

The Pointer Inn (2 ¾ miles)

Traditional pub grub but with a difference. Locals are offered a bartering exchange system where they provide local produce in exchange for meals or drinks. Great idea and upholds their intent to use local products. A garden with views across the downs and a large terrace are available for summer dining. Child and dog friendly. You may wish to book; this is a very popular place.

This is a beautiful traditional pub that serves excellent food and has staff that will go the extra mile. I love that you can order some of the dishes from the menu as a smaller portion so there is no food waste. All food is locally sourced and they can even tell you the name of the person who grew it!

The Old Village Inn (5 ½ miles)

This pub is slap bang in the middle of Bembridge village and is popular with locals and visitors alike. Parking is fine on the roads nearby. The menu is created using food locally sourced in the village so expect seasonal, fresh produce. Specials change daily and include fish fresh from the local harbour. A pizza oven is the latest addition so freshly made pizza is also on the menu.

Friendly local

Great friendly pub. Went a couple of times and the food was great, the staff were welcoming and the quiz was great fun. Really enjoyed our nights here and wish this was my local.

Friendly, welcoming, something for everyone.

Fabulous find in the village centre. Wide and varied menu, catering for most dietary needs. Staff are incredible. We ate here twice in a row, but I have no doubt that if you were in the area for a week you wouldn't run out of options.

Traditional village pub

I like it here. It's casual, frequented by locals (usually a good sign) and the food is pretty good for a village pub. The meat is from the local butchers and highly recommended.

The Taverners (3 ¼ miles)

A traditional country pub which uses local produce and even its own home grown herbs from a vegetable patch in the garden. There's a kids play area and a shop selling all sorts of local produce. Dogs are welcome.

A warm welcome

We booked for a meal at The Taverners after first visiting there for a drink earlier in the week. We received a warm friendly welcome and the food was excellent, plenty of choice with daily specials and a bit different to the norm. . The service was excellent and very prompt. Their local brew was also good. I would definitely recommend this establishment and would visit again when I am next on the Isle.

Seaview Village Community Shop (7 miles)

A recently opened community shop offering local produce, newspapers, fresh fruit, veg and milk. It's ideally situated in the middle of Seaview and a great place to stock up. They are only open mornings until Easter and then will extend to all day until October.

Great choice

This shop was open at 2 set times during the day, and we were pleased to see it was open until 18.30 when we stayed in Sept. They have a great choice of local produce including dairy items, the milk and Greek yogurt we had was delicious. The fruit was fresh and good quality, plus on sale were various dry goods and newspapers. A great selection of items. We will use the shop again if we return to Seaview.

Great Little Local Shop

A new community shop recently opened in the heart of the village. It offers fresh fruit and vegetables, milk, bread and other local produce. This is the perfect place to get provisions in Seaview and saves a trip to the supermarket in the car.

Seaview to Ryde Walk (7 miles)

Park your car anywhere on the Esplanade at Seaview and walk past the Boathouse pub with the sea on your right. You will pass rows of beach huts, woodland and into Puckpool Park. The sea views are stunning across the Solent to the mainland and the park itself is a gem. The path hugs the coast all the way around to Ryde, past Appley beach with its gothic tower and into the town. You'll find lots of places to eat and drink en-route, the path is even and flat so suitable for pushchairs. Dogs are allowed on the footpaths but restricted on the beach so do check the signs. The return walk is approx 2 miles depending how far into Ryde you walk and the best return route is back the way you came.

Nice Walk

It is a nice walk along the coast from Seaview to Ryde. There are a couple of park cafes on the way and some nice coffee shops in Ryde.

Excellent pushchair friendly walk

A lovely walk from the doorstep, although you may need to walk via Bluett Road in Seaview at high tide! There are a couple of cafes in Puckpool to take a rest and refreshments.

Enjoyable walk

With the sea to look at and all the activity on it along the way it is a very enjoyable walk. When the tide is out you can shorten the walk by cutting across the beaches. If you walk along the paths you will pass a small nature reserve which can be visited by all, a couple of pubs, The Boathouse looked good, a cafe which we went in called The Dell and recreations. The area named Appley has a Coastal Foley and woods to walk through. The beach at Ryde is large and sandy, and Ryde has many places for refreshments after your walk. You can continue your walk along the pier, which is free for pedestrians. We estimated the distance to be a little over 2 miles, we took our time and enjoyed the views.
