Whitwell, Isle of Wight
Whitwell is a small village located on the south of the Isle of Wight, approximately 3 miles north-west of Ventnor, the village's nearest town. In addition to this, it is about five minutes away from its neighbouring small villages of Godshill and Niton.
Whitwell's small size has led it to become a very close-knit community with a range of amenities including a garage, a 700 year old church, the oldest pub on the island which is serves excellent food and a post office. A trout farm is located towards Nettlecombe, with three lakes covering 1.5 acres (6,100 m2). The waters are well stocked with carp, roach and tench.
Whitwell is named after the "White Well" in the village which was visited by many during medieval times on pilgrimages, and now well dressing occurs annually each summer.
Nearby Ventnor is a Victorian seaside town situated on the southern side of the Isle of Wight, right in the heart of the famed Undercliff, much of which is designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. Visitors to Ventnor will find a great variety of established local shops, restaurants, public houses and holiday accommodation. All provide a friendly service both to their local community and its visitors. Many serve local freshly caught fish and locally brewed ales.
