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

Nearest pub

The Vine Inn (1 mile)

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

Seagrove Beach (250 yards)

This beach can be found nestled in between Priory Bay and Seaview Beach. At low tide you'll find a great expanse of golden sand and this is ideal for a huge range of beach activities and watersports (great for children). A slipway makes access easy for launching boats. At high tide the beach all but disappears so it is advisable to check the tide times before you visit. Dogs are allowed year round. No lifeguards are on duty.

Nearest walk

The Barnsley Trail (½ mile)

Follow this four mile circular trail around the pretty villages of Seaview, Pondwell, Nettlestone and Seagrove Bay. The route follows local footpaths, bridleways and a small number of roads. You also follow the beach for a while and can enjoy easterly views over the Solent. A free download is available from iwight.com

Nearest town

Seaview (½ mile)

On the east edge of the island, a summery little village is host to sailors and holidaymakers. Seaview has exactly that, with idyllic panoramas across deep water and a pebbly beach. You'll feel entirely welcomed in the plethora of waterside eateries serving up fresh produce all day, and most are even dog friendly.

Also nearby

Lily's Cafe (½ mile)

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 (½ mile)

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 (1 mile)

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

The Old Village Inn (1 ¾ miles)

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. Specials change daily and include fish fresh from the local harbour.

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 (2 ¼ 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.
