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 Island is a wonderful holiday destination, catering for all ages and with activities for all interests.
Colwell Bay is a small beach situated on the western side of the Island. Panoramic views can be enjoyed from the Needles lighthouse stretching around to Hurst Castle and Fort Albert. The bay has a relaxing feel and does not generally become overcrowded like some of the larger beaches found elsewhere on the Island. There are beachside cafes offering an assortment of refreshments and beach goods. In addition, you can take a stroll along the sea wall to Totland Bay. Here you will find another popular beachside cafe, together with the Waterfront restaurant bar where you can enjoy a meal overlooking the sea!
The village of Freshwater is just up the road. It is the largest village 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 beaches at Colwell Bay and Totland Bay be enjoyed, there is a further great beach at Freshwater Bay. Other local attractions include The Needles Pleasure Park offering children's rides, sweet making factory (watch the sweets being made) and glass blowing. You can also take a trip in a 'chair lift' to the beach below and see the 'famous' coloured sands. From here you can 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.
