Nearest pub

The Wheatsheaf Inn (1 mile)

Located in Yarmouth this pub offers a convenient place to stop for refeshment and is dog and child friendly. It's cosy, warm and serves real ales. It's close by the ferry terminal so makes a good stop off point.

Nearest beach

Colwell Bay (¾ mile)

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 (1 mile)

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

Yarmouth (1 mile)

On the north-west coast of the Isle of Wight, this bustling small town has lots to offer incuding the longest wooden pier in England dating back to 1875. You will also find some lovely cafes, an eclectic range of boutique shops, cobbled streets and a fabulous Tudor Castle. The Wightlink ferry arrives and departs to and from Lymington here and it's a great place to watch yachts and ships sail by.

Also nearby

Freshwater Bay beach (2 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.

We sat on the wall next to the short promenade, the air is so fresh, the sun was warm and the sea was noisy around this lovely bay crashing over nearby rocks and rushing up the beach. It was only 30 minutes but wonderful in October.

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!

Off The Rails (1 ¼ miles)

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.

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"

Totland Bay (1 ½ miles)

Check the tide times before you visit as at high tide there is very little beach. At low tide the beach is pebbly with some sand. A promenade goes through to Colwell Bay which is a nice walk with lovely views across to the mainland. There is a disused pier and other facilities are available including toilets and a restaurant. Dogs are not allowed from May until the end of September. No lifeguard cover is available here.

Totland Bay

Children absolutely loved Totland Bay both at high and low tides and sunset. Rocky corner provided lots of excitement when watching for baby crash and Little fish.
Dog owners do walk dogs on the Beach thought, it is not too often but it does happen there are no signs about dogs not being allowed too. Some People arrive atTotland bay by boat with dogs too.
Overall beautiful beach with a lot of sand at low tide. Not very crowded and loved by children. Walk to The far left sidę to the peaceful atmosphere near National Trust park side.

Turf Walk (1 ½ miles)

If you're looking for a moderate 4 mile walk taking in the Needles then this is a good one to try. Start and finish in Totland with moderate climbing, dogs are welcome and it should take you around two and a half hours. Take a look at the National Trust website link for a detailed route.

Beautiful easy walk, magnificent views.

Dogs are not allowed from 1st June to the end of September and there is no lifeguard cover.

Great beach shame about the dogs

Beautiful beach shame they allow dogs on it while summer months and children are there as I witnessed ignorant owners allowing their dogs to foul the beach and leave it there
