You can enjoy the beautiful walk to Shanklin following the Stenbury Trail, which is also a fantastic cycle ride, or enjoy the glorious sandy beaches of Sandown, Shanklin and Ventnor, which are all just an easy drive away. With opportunities for golf, kayaking and horse riding, as well as a children’s theme park, vineyard, cider company, donkey sanctuary, farm shop and chocolate factory in the area, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
