Nearby pub

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

A traditional cozy inn with an open fire and garden in summer. The blackboard menu changes daily and the pub has its own herb garden to accompany fresh local fish and meat. There are lots of lovely walks in the area so this is the perfect place to stop for refreshments. Dogs are welcome.

staff a bit harassed

The food was okay but average and still quite expensive for a pub

Nearby beach

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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.

Refreshing

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.

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!

Nearby walk

Pull on your walking boots and head out for a day of stunning scenery including The Needles and Tennyson Down. This walk is six miles in length and will take you along the chalk cliffs and wonderful countryside of the western end of the island. Take a look at the attached map on the website from Walking Britain for further details.

Nearby town

A couple of miles from Freshwater, you reach the sea. And what a sight. Freshwater Bay is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, surrounded by chalk white cliffs and with the Needles just next door - don't forget your camera.

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

A great beach for all the family and very quiet before the school term ended. When the tide is out there is plenty of sand, but once the tide comes in the beach is reduced considerably. There is still enough for access. The Waterfront restaurant serves excellent food and has wonderful views.

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.

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.

We had amazing fish and chips on the beach here in the evening, 5 minutes drive from the house.
Lovely town to look around and fabulous ships to watch

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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"

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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.

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
