Top Five Spots to buy Fresh Produce
The Isle of Wight isn’t just famous for ‘Bucket & Spade’ holidays and sandy beaches, we also grow an enormous amount of produce on the Island, some of which is supplied to national Supermarkets and even exported internationally. The microclimate that exists on the Island is perfect for growing some of the finest produce and ingredients, many of which can be found in our top five spots to buy fresh produce.
Isle of Wight Pearl
You know it’s a good day at work when you get to go out and visit somewhere as spectacular as the Isle of Wight Pearl to have a spot of lunch and take a look at the beautiful array of jewellery they have to offer.
Things to do in Seaview
The Village of Seaview on the North Eastern coast of the Island is not only where our office is based, but also where we have the highest concentration of holiday properties, just shy of 100 cottages. So why all the fuss over a tiny seafront sailing village that time forgot? Here’s some reasons why:
No 8 Cafe and farm shop
We would definitely recommend this cafe, vegetarian or not there is something for everybody.
Travelling to the Isle of Wight by Ferry
If you’re planning a trip to the Island and are unsure about how to get here, the options are ferry, ferry or ferry. With no commercial airport, fixed link or tunnel, the only way on or off the Island is by boat, which for some residents and visitors is part of the appeal.
Shanklin Seafront, situated on the southeast coast of the Island is one of our most popular seaside beach resorts, with miles of golden sand, this is a great place for all the family, no matter what the age!
Island Harbour – a little known peaceful location
Just over a quarter of a mile off the main route between Newport and Ryde, you’ll find an idyllic riverside development of waterfront homes spaced along the Marina which is the only harbour on the Island to use Lock-gates to maintain the water level at low tide. Island Harbour remains a quiet and peaceful area which many Island Visitors have never explored.
Spending the day in Cowes
Often referred to as the ‘sailing capital of the world’ because of the rich history of sailing for which this small town is famous for across the world, including being the location of the very first ‘Americas cup’ and of course the infamous Cowes week.
Wellies & Walkies at Fort Victoria
We had a lovely spring like day here on the Island this weekend so I thought what better way to spend it than getting out for a walk and dragging the family and the dog along with me to.
