The Isle of Wight region

The Isle of Wight covers an area of 380 km2. A large part, much of which is on the West of the Island where our apartment is situated, is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Island boasts 57 miles of varied coastline and 258 km2 of farmland.

There are hundreds of miles of interesting walking routes whether they be coastal, downland or inland - you can access several walks directly from the apartment without using your car. There are many villages both inland and coastal. Newport is the County town of the Island. It has an excellent variety of shops, boutiques and supermarkets - Morrisons, Sainsburys, Lidl, M&S and BHS to name but a few. It also holds a Farmers Market every Friday. A Waitrose in East Cowes and an Aldi in Cowes means we are spoilt for choice! There is also an Arts Centre, a Multiplex Cinema and a large leisure centre in Newport. There are many attractions such as stately homes, forts, castles, an Abby and gardens, many of which are owned by the National Trust and English Heritage - one of these is Osborne House at East Cowes. This was the summer home and indeed the final residence of Queen Victoria. There is plenty of opportunity for outdoor activities - sailing, surfing, body boarding, windsurfing, paragliding, swimming, sea canoeing, cycling, golf and horse riding. Or why not take a boat trip round the Island or go on an organised sea fishing trip. If railways are your interest take a trip on the Isle of Wight steam railway at Havenstreet.


Bayclose is set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (ANOB) and is also in a Conservation Area as is most of Freshwater Bay. Locally, Yarmouth and Freshwater have a good variety of local shops and cafes as well as a Co-op, a Sainsbury's Express and a leisure centre. Just down the lane from the apartment is Dimbola Lodge - Dimbola was the home of the celebrated Victorian Photographer, Julia Margaret Cameron. Now it is a museum dedicated to her life and work. It also has a tearoom and bookshop and the picturesque thatched church of St. Agnes is 100 yards up the road. There are also a number of pubs and hotels in the vicinity.

There are many places to eat and drink locally, to suit all budgets. Here are a selection of just a few of them! -

Dimbola Lodge Cafe - just beyond the drive entrance from our apartment

The Daffodil Cafe - 5 minutes walk from our apartment down at Freshwater Bay

The Blue Crab - in Yarmouth.

Off the Rails (the Old Station) - in Yarmouth

The Hut at Colwell Bay - it is right down on the Promenade - they get their fish straight from the local fishermen

Justin Brown at Farringford Manor (just up the road from the apartment)

The Red Lion at Old Freshwater - again not far at all from the apartment

On the Rocks - in Yarmouth - cooks steaks and the like on hot rocks at your table.
