Nearest pub

The Vine Inn (300 yards)

Located in a comanding position with views across the village green you can spend a relaxing evening sitting outside at a bistro table watching the local teams play cricket. A combination of activities take place each week in the pub with a quiz night on Wednesdays and live music to entertain you on Fridays and Saturdays. Food is served daily and offers a range of local dishes along with pizza for both eat in or take away. As with most places in the area, dogs are welcome.

Nearest beach

St Helens Beach (½ mile)

The beach is a fairly flat area of sand and pebbles with rock pools at the far end. St Helens Old Church ruin stands proudly in front of you when you enter the pay and display car park with single file parking and overspill parking availabile a few hundred yards away. There's a cafe but this is only open during the busier months. Dogs are allowed on the beach year round. There is no lifeguard cover.

Nearest walk

Bembridge Village Stroll (¾ mile)

A two mile meander around the village of Bembridge, taking in the historic windmill and, if the tide is out Bembridge beach. The route takes in the Lifeboat station on the beach which opens to the public during the summer holidays. The route starts and finishes at the Pilot Boat Public House, ideal for refreshments,

Nearest town

St Helens (½ mile)

A little village near the water where you can sit and watch cricket on the village green, glass of wine almost obligatory. It's across the harbour from Bembridge on the far western point of the island so has its own little shingly beach, watched over by a shipping landmark in the form of an ancient church. It's a particularly good place for rockpools and dog walks.

Also nearby

The Old Village Inn (1 mile)

This pub is bang smack in the middle of the 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.

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.

Bembridge (1 ½ miles)

The most easterly point of the island, this friendly town is full of beaches that are dog-friendly year-round with pubs to stop in when you've had your fill of fresh sea air. There's lots of places to eat as well as shops for local ingredients to make the most of your self-catering stay.

Lovely village

The centre of the village is where you'll find the majority of the shops including some decent cafes, a fish monger, great butcher (Woodfords) and a lovely bakery. It is like going back in time; in a good way.

Lily's Cafe (1 ½ miles)

An Artisan coffee shop in the heart of Seaview just a short stroll away from the seafront. Enjoy homemade cakes, biscuits, panninis, salads and quiche. Pop in for a well earned snack if you are walking around the coast or spending the day of the beach.

Lovely spot

Located on the High Street, this eclectic cafe serves good coffee and a great variety of snacks and cakes baked fresh daily. It's a bit of a tardis and looks small from the outside but there's loads of seating to the rear.

Seaview Village Community Shop (1 ½ 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 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 Beach (2 miles)

Nestled between Seagrove Bay and Priory Bay, you'll find a mixture of sand and pebbles with large beach at low tide. Parking is nearby along the esplanade with small shops and cafes in Seaview down the road. Dogs are not allowed from May to the end of September. There is no lifeguard cover.

Old fashioned in the best possible way

This beach is always popular with lots of rocks for crabbing off, an easy part to get into the sea and a sandy bit for games
