Wight Locations, Walking, Landscapes

The Isle of Wight is a popular destination for a wide variety of guests. One of the appeals of the Island is the large amount of easy to access coastline, promenades and stunning landscapes.

As some of our guests may have issues with mobility, we thought it would be helpful to list a couple of organisations on the Island that would be happy to assist you with your stay with us.

Whilst many people believe the Isle of Wight to be mostly old traditional villages with local shops and Markets, we do also have all (Asda due 2016) the major supermarkets on the Island for your shopping needs.

There are large stores in Newport (Morrisons, Sainsburys, M&S, Co-op & Iceland), Ryde (Tesco & Co-op), East Cowes (Waitrose & Co-op), Freshwater (Sainsburys & Co-op) and Lake (Morrisons).

A large number of the beaches on the Isle of Wight welcome dogs, allowing pets and their owners to enjoy the cool waters and spectacular scenery. Listed below are some of the Island's most popular year-round beaches:

There's a really lovely walk around the coastal point in Bembridge. If you park at the Toll Gate Cafe, at low tide, on the outskirts of the village, and step onto the beach you can explore the dunes as you wander around the point onto the vast expanse of sand on Bembridge Beach. Follow the shoreline around and enjoy the immense views and peaceful surroundings as you head towards the Lifeboat. The Lifeboat Station was given a major overhaul a few years ago and it now sits centre stage, impressive in it's design, at the heart of the village.
