This recently upgraded semi-detached house is perfectly situated within 5 minutes walk of Gurnard sea front and beach, with its colourful beach huts overlooking the sea and café. The safe sand/shingle beach has rock pools, and at low tide you can walk along the shore to nearby Cowes. Also located here is the friendly Gurnard Sailing club, the major dinghy sailing club on the island. 'The Luck', a stream that runs into the sea, is a popular fishing spot for children. A footpath leads you onto a cliff walk west into Thorness Bay, and is part of the coastal path around the island.

A short stroll down the hill will lead you to 'The Woodvale', a family-friendly waterfront pub, and a wonderful place to watch the beautiful sunsets across the Solent. The pub overlooks the village green, an ideal place for children to play. You are also close to The Little Gloster – a haven away from the hustle and bustle of Island life, offering simple yet stunning seasonal food in a simplistic Scandinavian styled Restaurant, Bar and B&B.

The world famous resort of Cowes is a pleasant waterfront walk away, along the Princes Esplanade. Cowes is the home of yachting, famous as one of the world's main yachting centres, and in August hundreds come to race and enjoy the bustling nightlife. Cowes Marina and Yacht Haven are both ideal locations for those with an interest in yachting, or simply those wishing to soak up the great atmosphere. Cowes Parade is an interesting place at any time of year to watch passing ships. The town centre has an abundance of small shops and supermarkets, with a varied choice of fine cafes, pubs and restaurants.

Gurnard, Isle of Wight

What the North Wight has to offer:

The North of the Isle of Wight is home to the County Town of Newport, with the Medina River running through it towards the Solent dividing East Cowes and West Cowes. To the West are the villages of Shalfleet and Newtown Creek with a stunning Nature Reserve; to the East are Wootton Bridge and Quarr Abbey.

Attractions

Osborne House and Carisbrooke Castle are both with English Heritage, shrouded in their history and surrounded by beautiful grounds, definitely worth a visit. Quarr Abbey, further down the coast from Osborne, is a spectacular working Monastery with tea rooms. The Roman Villa in Brading often has educational classes in the café. Newtown is one of the oldest towns in the UK, situated near a nature reserve, a lovely place to walk and enjoy the wildlife.

Sailing

Best known as the world's premier yachting centre, Cowes is the Island's main port. Yachtsmen from all over the world participate in the season's prestigious sailing events, the best known being Cowes Week, held annually at the beginning of August. Shopping in the narrow pedestrianised High Street is a delight, with some excellent shops, many catering for the yachting fraternity. The town also has an array of fashionable clothing shops, gift shops, delicatessens, cafes, restaurants and lively pubs.

Walking

The Nature Reserve at Newtown is the beautiful home to many species of wild fowl. In land Parkhurst Forrest offers acres to walk dogs and children, with squirrel trails and woodland for picnics and adventure games.

The Festival and The Bestival

The Isle of Wight has played host to these two increasingly popular music festivals. The Festival is held in early June just outside Newport and has been going since the 60's. The Bestival is held in September at the Robin Hill adventure park and every year announces a different fancy dress theme which everyone throws themselves into. Popular with families, both attract some of the great new and old musical acts and the Island's atmosphere is electric over these festival times.

Places to eat

This part of the Island holds some of the best restaurants and pubs. Cowes being a place of destination for many yachtsmen offers a wide range of cuisine of which Lugleys with its sea frontage is popular. There is also a Lugleys in Newport and Olivio's in Newport and Ryde offing delicious menus. Pier View pub in Cowes serves the best hamburgers, the Sportsman Rest in Porchfield is very popular too with families and is close to good walks.
