Eateries:


The Waterfront

For a taste of the Mediterranean and views across Totland Bay to match, The Waterfront offers relaxed dining with a fabulous menu including lots of locally caught seafood.

 

The George

Eat in style in this historic hotel located right on the waters edge in Yarmouth. The garden overlooks the Solent and is the perfect spot to enjoy a sundowner and some truly delicious food.

 

PO41

Need a proper barista coffee with something yummy to eat on the side? Then a visit to PO41 is Yarmouth is a must. With handmade cakes and pastries and a fabulous choice of speciality teas and coffee it’s the perfect pit stop at any time of day.

 

The Blacksmiths Arms

For far reaching views out across the centre of Island this is the pub to visit, with a fantastic menu offering great food – lots of which is locally sourced and all hand made.

 

The Sun Inn, Hulverstone

The Sun Inn has probably one of the best sea views on the Island and is the perfect spot to enjoy a pint of local ale in the garden and just take in the vista across Brook and out towards the white cliffs of Tennyson Down.

 

Nomad

Nomad is by far the most exciting place to eat on the Island, offering neuvo latino and Asian street food and classic British dishes. Serving their ‘Shut Up and Feed Me’ menu you’ll be brought whatever delicious delights the chef has created that day – think big flavours and super fresh ingredients. This is seriously sexy food.

 

Accommodation:

Isle of Wight Campervan Holidays

To explore the Island in style and be able to stay wherever takes your fancy, Isle of Wight Campervan Holidays offer the perfect solution. All their brightly coloured VW Campers are beautifully restored and are all named too which we just love.

 

Compton Farm

This family run award winning campsite is located in one of the most beautiful rural locations on the South West of the Wight. Park up, pitch your tent, take in the views and wander down to the nearby beach at Compton and enjoy endless sand and the Jurassic coastline. Heaven.

 

Toms Eco Lodges
