Tides Reach is located in the unspoilt sailing village of Bembridge with its sandy beaches ideal for family fun, bathing, beachcombing and crabbing. Bembridge boasts a variety of local shops, deli/cafes, restaurants and family pubs, both within the village and at waters edge at Bembridge harbour on the north coast and on the cliff top on the south coast where you will find the Crab and Lobster family pub for good food and views across the English Channel and coastal paths towards Culver and for those seeking secluded hideaways, Whitecliffe Bay is ideal for children to play in the shallow calm water, while mum and dad sit at the Wonky Café enjoying refreshments.
The marshes, dunes and coastal footpaths on the outskirts of the village provide delightful opportunities for walkers, photographers and birdwatchers to enjoy fabulous views and countryside along the miles of footpaths, bridleways and cycle paths.
Tides Reach is well appointed, comfortable family home, finished to high standard and situated in a quiet cul-de-sac in a sought after location within close walking distance of the beach and the village. This modern yet characterful ome benefits from five bedrooms and spacious light, living areas to provide comfortable accommodation for larger families. An enclosed patio at the rear of the property is perfect for al-fresco dinning and soaking up the sun and off road parking adds convenience to park in what is a popular, busy village in the Summer months.
Bembridge Harbour is within a short walk, which as well as being home to many pleasure and fishing craft, boasts a sandy beach which extends to either side of the mouth of the harbour through dunes to safe sandy beaches. Fresh fish can be purchased at the harbour, or you can catch your own when taking fishing trips from harbour.
From the top of Bembridge Down there are breathtaking views across the Solent where you can watch as the many ships, coasters and liners pass by as they head off into the English Channel. Bembridge's small airport, is also overlooked from here.
The more 'tourist' resorts of Ryde and Sandown are within a short drive, both offering miles of sandy beaches, seaside attractions, cafes, bars and restaurants, making Tides Reach a perfect holiday destination.

The Isle of Wight region
The East of the Isle of Wight incorporates some of the most stunning beaches the Island has to offer. There are pretty villages with butchers, bakers and deli's selling delicious locally produced fayre. The beach stretches from Ryde right around the coast to Shanklin and inland offers some of the most beautiful countryside.
Appley Beach, with its six miles of beautiful sandy beach and wonderful play area for children situated within the woodland behind and a 9 hole golf course. Beyond Appley Tower to the East, dogs are permitted and there are two good beach restaurants either end of the beach.
Arreton has a feast of attractions including The Barns and Craft Village, Arreton Manor and Amazon World. Nearby is the popular Robin Hill Adventure Park with exciting rides and a 400m toboggan run. This is a really fun day out for all the family. Nearer the coast is the Bembridge Windmill and the Seaview Wildlife Encounter. The steam railway offers rides on the steam engines and puff their way through the pretty countryside.
Hiring bikes is easy and the Island is a place of destination for keen bikers and family enthusiasts. There are also a few riding stables to choose from around the island from where you can either hack through country side or along beaches. Photographers and walkers won't be disappointed and historians are also indulged with our castles and roman villas. Sailing, fishing and wonderful places to walk dogs and fly kites, there's something for everyone.
During very low tides, you will see a ribbon of people walking the famous Fort Walk from the village of Bembridge to the Fort out in the Solent. There are coastal walks along the beaches which can be enjoyed as well as bridle paths along the downs taking in the breathtaking views of the patchwork countryside and out to sea.
Beaches around this part of the island change as you venture along the coast. Ryde itself enjoys 6 miles of stunning sandy beach where cricket games are played on the sand banks during very low tides. Further round the coast there are pebbled beaches, sandy beaches, great beach restaurants and pretty marinas, all this part of the coast is well worth investigating.
Places to eat
There are some great pubs, beach bars and restaurants in this area of the Island. Bembridge has the Pilot Boat, close to the sea serving excellent food with a great atmosphere, on the Duver at St Helens there is Baywatch, a beach restaurant serving good food by the sea. The trendy bars and restaurants are found mostly in Ryde, but all over the Island is enjoying serving up the local produce.
