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

Nearest pub

The Bugle Inn (50 yards)

Situated in a convenient location in the heart of the town this pub offers real ales, homemade food and open fires. Inglenook beams and quaint snugs makes the place feel nice and cosy. As for your pooch, well they are welcome too.

Nearest beach

Colwell Bay (2 miles)

Located in the west of the island this delightful family beach offers good car parking, easy access and a seaside cafe and shop. Access for disabled users is good and the beach is gently sloping sand and shingle. There is a lovely walk from here along the sea wall to Totland Beach but due to a recent landslip the pathway is currently closed. Dogs are allowed year round but only to the right of the slipway. There's no lifeguard cover here.

Nearest walk

Yar Estuary Ramble (150 yards)

Have a little pootle around the Western Yar Estuary on this east access walk. It's just under 4 miles long so will take up to two hours, but the IOW Ramblers have put together a lovely illustrated map to download for free with lots of interesting snippets.

Nearest town

Freshwater (2 miles)

Situated at the point of the island where it seems the western tip might break off and float away, Freshwater is the largest town on this side of the Isle of Wight. Explore Tennyson Downs on foot, have a round of golf, walk the chalk cliffs of the beautiful bay and sample delicious morsels in the many eateries.

Also nearby

Off The Rails (¼ mile)

The original station was transformed into a restaurant in 2014 and is now open for lunch and dinner throughout the year. This is a popular spot for walkers and cyclists and dogs are made very welcome. Give them a call for opening times before you go as they don't open every day during off season months.

October 2017

Fantastic meal and a nice location for a bit of birdwatching

We had some great burgers and a delicious roast duck leg with a savoury waffle (loved the sauce too!) What a great location! Shame it was too cold for us to explore the wetlands and foreshore, however still managed to spot a few interesting birds on the way back to the town centre. Dogs are welcome too, which is a bonus, and they can even sample some "doggy treats"

Freshwater Bay beach (2 ½ miles)

A pretty bay with a sand and pebble beach nestled in between chalk cliffs. Located just to the east of Needles headland, the beach is popular but usually has ample space and facilities. Parking is available and dogs are not allowed from May until the end of September. There's no lifeguard cover here.

Mr Treasure April 2017

If you visit at high tide, there's a good spot along the sea wall to jump off and go for a swim. At low tide the 'cabbage patch' of rocks appear, a great spot for rock pooling and exploring, but shoes are advised!

Compton Bay (3 ¾ miles)

Park above the beach and take the steps down. There's two miles of open sandy beach, sandstone cliffs and the chalk cliffs of Freshwater further afield. There are no facilities apart from toilets so take all your food and drink with you. It's a popular spot for kitesurfers and windsurfers. Dogs are not allowed from 1st June to the end of September and there is no lifeguard cover.

April 2017

A great spot for an Ice cream if you're out for a drive along the South Coast. One of the few places on the Island you can usually find some Surf

Yarmouth Castle (50 yards)

An English Heritage delight; this castle offers exhibitions, gardens with views across the Solent and harbour, picnic area and a children's room. Parking is a five minute walk away in the pay and display car park but be careful when crossing the busy road. Dogs are welcome on a lead.

Salty's Restaurant and Bar (50 yards)

You'll find this cute bar and restaurant in the centre of town close to the harbour. The bar is downstairs and great for a casual drink or there's the restaurant upstairs which is a bit more formal.
