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 (1 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.

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.

Seagrove Beach (1 ¼ 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 sore 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.

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.

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
