The Isle of Wight region
The Isle of Wight is situated approximately 3 miles off the English Southern Coastline. It is known for its breathtaking scenery with much of the Island being designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Island first became popular as a holiday destination during Victorian times and its unique charm still entices over 2.5 million visitors each year. It is quite easy to appreciate why the Island attracts so many, with its scenic coastline, award winning golden beaches, charming little villages and temperate climate – in fact the Island can boast more hours of sunshine than most other destinations in Britain. For the more energetic, the Island offers over 500 miles of maintained footpaths which makes it ideal for walkers and cyclists alike. The Islands towns offer a comprehensive range of shops and amenities including many 'High Street' names together with popular cafes, bars and restaurants - some even being awarded the 'Michelin Star'. All in all the Isle of Wight is a wonderful holiday destination, catering for all ages and with activities for all interests.
The village of Freshwater is situated within the 'West Wight' where there are many areas of outstanding natural beauty. This includes rolling countryside and quaint old villages. The village itself offers a good selection of local shops and amenities, including an indoor swimming pool at the West Wight Sports Centre. In addition, there is a wonderful 18 hole golf course which is situated on the downs where breathtaking panoramic views of the coast, Freshwater Bay and Tennyson Down can be experienced. For those who love the beach, not only can the beach at Freshwater Bay be enjoyed, there are two further great beaches at Totland Bay and Colwell Bay – all within easy reach. Other local attractions include The Needles Pleasure Park offering children's rides, watch sweet making and glass blowing, take a trip in a 'chair lift' to the beach below and see the 'famous' coloured sands. From here you can also take a boat trip to the Needles Lighthouse and chalk rocks. Don't forget The Needles Old Battery (a Victorian fort and rocket testing site), Afton Down (site of the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival), Dimbola Lodge (museum and former home of pioneering Victorian photographer Julia Margaret Cameron), St Agnes (the Island's only thatched church) or Compton Bay (where dinosaur footprints are visible at low tide). Alternatively, you can always take a stroll up Tennyson Down where the Poet Laureate Alfred Lord Tennyson gathered much of his inspiration. The West Wight has so much to offer – we haven't even mentioned the neighbouring town of Yarmouth – a historic harbour town where Yarmouth Castle can be found, built by Henry VIII to strengthen coastal defences when invasion by the French was once feared. We hope you have enjoyed reading this small insight into the West Wight but why not pay a visit yourself – there is something for everyone.
