About the local area

Gurnard, where the house is situated, is a pretty village with a small super market, paper shop, 2 pubs, beach cafe and waterside restaurant. The Green, next to the sea, has a new children's play area. Cowes is 2 miles away and Newport (the Island capital) 5 miles, both of which have pleasant shopping areas.

Cowes, the nearest town, is perhaps the most famous centre for sailing in Europe and the yacht racing can be seen from our garden and beach.
Cowes harbour is packed with yachts in Summer. The local dinghy Sailing Club is very active and dinghy racing takes place off the beach twice a week. Kitesurfing and windsurfing are very popular there also. Views over the Solent are never boring.

The Isle of Wight has been active in promoting walking holidays, so there are many signposted walks round and across the Island. As the traffic is relatively light even in Summer, it is ideal for walking and cycling holidays. There are also facilities for horse riding and most of the golf courses welcome visitors.
