Tennyson Down, near Totland Bay
Once a favourite haunt of Alfred Lord Tennyson, these stunning downs are named in his memory and are home to flower-rich grassland, butterflies and cliffs teaming with sea birds.
Built around 1700 this is the only surviving windmill on the Isle of Wight and and has most of its original machinery intact. It last operated in 1913 and this year celebrates 50 years of ownership by the National Trust.
