Quirky Building

It is actually built in the shape of a boat which is quite cool. There's a bit of seating outside but mostly inside, although it's quite small so there aren't that many tables. Menu is limited but that's not necessarily a bad thing as food is freshly cooked to order.

Nearest beach

Bembridge Beach (½ mile)

A wide expanse of beach which follows the coast from the spit at the end of the harbour. Sand is exposed at low tide and a sandbank extends into the Solent. Car parking is available behind the beach and it is a short walk into the village. Dogs are allowed year round. There is no lifeguard cover.

Nearest walk

Bembridge Village Stroll (¼ 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

Bembridge (¾ mile)

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.

Also nearby

The Old Village Inn (½ 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. 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.

Seagrove Beach (1 ½ miles)

A real gem in the Isle of Wight's crown, Seagrove Beach has a gently sloping sandy shore with rocky outcrops. An untamed stretch of coast, this safe-swimming beach is often quiet and provides a real haven of tranquility. Enjoying beautiful vistas, Seagrove Beach is a sight for soar eyes and there are toilets and a cafe for your convenience. The easiest access is via Seaview village, with a short walk from there. Dogs are welcome year-round.

Hidden gem

We booked a weeks holiday in a cottage in Seagrove and didn’t realise how amazing the beach was going to be. The water is clean and clear and as we had super hot weather most of the week we were able to swim and play in the water with our small grandchildren. There are lovely walks in both directions and the beach is safe and not too crowded. The children loved seeing the local horse riding school take their route along the beach.

Tollgate Cafe (350 yards)

An old fashioned cafe situated on the harbour side with views across the water. Food is prepared to order and whilst you are waiting you can chat to locals or look around the many souvenirs on sale. Limited parking is available but there is parking on the road. Dogs are welcome and there is ample outside seating on summer days.

Quaint place

It's old fashioned but in a lovely location overlooking the harbour. It's best to go when it's sunny and you can sit outside.

Seaview Village Community Shop (2 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.

The Culver Trail (½ mile)

This circular three and a half mile walk will take you around the village of Bembridge and on to the downs of Culver cliffs with panoramic views across the bay. Start off from Bembridge Windmill and follow the route from the visit Bembridge website.

Lovely scenery

I did this walk in May time and it was lovely, great views from the top on Culver and there's even a cafe for a well deserved cuppa. Watch out for fields with cows in. Paths may be muddy during winter.
