Nearest town

Ventnor (¼ mile)

Ventnor is the place to go if you enjoy a vibrant arts scene or botanical gardens. It seems a little warmer here all year-round, hence the flora and plentiful fish make it a great spot for anglers. Most of the island crab comes from here.

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.

The Chequers Inn (5 miles)

Set in the heart of the countryside, this pub has masses of parking, a huge kids play area, childrens menu and dogs are welcome. Three roaring log fires will keep you toasty in winter.

Best pub/restuarant we visited durring our stay.

Excellent food, good selection of beers and the friendliest staff you could wish to have serving you.
They made our border collie Mollie really welcome.

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.

Seaview to Ryde Walk (9 ¼ miles)

Park your car anywhere on the Esplanade at Seaview and walk past the Boathouse pub with the sea on your right. You will pass rows of beach huts, woodland and into Puckpool Park. The sea views are stunning across the Solent to the mainland and the park itself is a gem. The path hugs the coast all the way around to Ryde, past Appley beach with its gothic tower and into the town. You'll find lots of places to eat and drink en-route, the path is even and flat so suitable for pushchairs. Dogs are allowed on the footpaths but restricted on the beach so do check the signs. The return walk is approx 2 miles depending how far into Ryde you walk and the best return route is back the way you came.

Lovely coast path

Great views, accessible with a pushchair and plenty of places to stop on route for refreshments and a great kids park in puckpool park (with public toilets), our toddler loved it. The Old Barracks beer garden is sunny and nice with reasonably priced drinks. Don't miss the sand playground on Ryde seafront if you have little kids, our toddler loved it!

Excellent pushchair friendly walk

A lovely walk from the doorstep, although you may need to walk via Bluett Road in Seaview at high tide! There are a couple of cafes in Puckpool to take a rest and refreshments.

Enjoyable walk

With the sea to look at and all the activity on it along the way it is a very enjoyable walk. When the tide is out you can shorten the walk by cutting across the beaches. If you walk along the paths you will pass a small nature reserve which can be visited by all, a couple of pubs, The Boathouse looked good, a cafe which we went in called The Dell and recreations. The area named Appley has a Coastal Foley and woods to walk through. The beach at Ryde is large and sandy, and Ryde has many places for refreshments after your walk. You can continue your walk along the pier, which is free for pedestrians. We estimated the distance to be a little over 2 miles, we took our time and enjoyed the views.
