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

Nearest pub

The Wight Mouse Inn (300 yards)

This pub is in a great location for walkers and cyclists on the southern most stretch of the island. With good food and a relaxed atmosphere be sure to pop in. There's a large outside seating area for warmer months. Dogs are welcome.

Nearest beach

Whale Chine (¾ mile)

A difficult beach to reach and great care should be taken. Steps down the side of the verticle chime were re-installed however they didn't last long and are now very dangerous. It is not advised to use them however people still do! It is possible to walk from Atherfield about two miles up the coast. Good for fossil hunting but watch the tide. Dogs are allowed and there is no lifeguard cover.

Nearest walk

St Catherine's Point walk (1 ¼ miles)

A good couple of hours stomp over moderate terrain with some difficult bits gives you a great outing around the only onshore lighthouse left on the island, as well as lots of comms history, wildlife and views. The National Trust have a free download fully describing the route.

Nearest town

Godshill (3 ¾ miles)

Come here for the quintessential cream tea holiday, with thatched rooftops and picnics on the village green. There are plenty of tearooms to sample homemade cakes or have a tipple in the tiny cider shop, before walking off the treats in this picturesque location.

Also nearby

The Taverners (3 ¾ 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.

Blackgang Chine (½ mile)

Hours of family fun in Ventnor. Explore the park and enjoy. Parking is free and there's a limited number of disabled parking spaces.

The Buddle Inn (1 ½ miles)

Located up the road from St Catherine's Lighthouse and in an area of outstanding beauty, this pub is the most southerly on the island. Sit on the outside terrace and enjoy views across the bay or in winter warm up infront of an open fire. The menu is traditional and dogs are very welcome.

Parkhurst Forest (8 ¼ miles)

A large area of woodland maintained by the Forestry Commission. There's miles of woodland walks suitable for both walkers and mountain bikers. The red squirrel hide is a great place to spot wildlife from.

Beautiful place to walk the dog and the kids!

The Pointer Inn (6 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!
