Most of the surrounding land is owned by the National Trust, meaning that the countryside is left unspoilt.

Just a couple of minutes’ drive is Freshwater, which features shops, a library, tea rooms, an indoor swimming pool and a number of friendly pubs. The multi-coloured cliffs of Alum Bay are about a 5-minute drive, and 10 minutes in the other direction is the historic sailing town of Yarmouth, fittingly named due to its position at the mouth of the River Yar.

    As well as some splendid walks locally, there are also many tourist attractions to discover. One of the most popular attractions on the island is The Needles Park, which features a chairlift, boat rides, coloured sands, a lighthouse, amusements and glass-blowing demonstrations. Other attractions that lie in close proximity to the property include the UK’s oldest amusement park Blackgang Chine, Ventnor Botanical Gardens, Calbourne Water Mill, various National Trust-owned homes and gardens, vineyards, museums, wildlife centres, The Isle of Wight Zoo, Isle of Wight Pearl, Carisbrooke Castle, Osbourne House, and one of the longest-running sailing regattas in the world, Cowes Week.
