Places to visit near Hillway - ISLE OF WIGHT



In the central eastern part of the Isle of Wight is the small community of Hillway, which is just a little inland from the coast. It is a very small settlement with not very many amenities but is home to an array of lovely country cottages and stunning scenery, perfect for if you want to visit the island to either paint, take photographs or just simply relax surrounded by stunning natural beauty.

Hillway is close by to the larger village of Bembridge which is on the very eastern point of the Isle of Wight, situated on the coast and close by to some lovely sandy beaches. For those looking for a really tranquil cottage holiday, staying in Hillway and then taking trips to Bembridge is a great idea, as you can get the chance to experience a busier atmosphere yet stay in a completely serene area. Bembridge is home to plenty of pubs, restaurants and independent shops which offer some great gift ideas, and also features the Bembridge Heritage Centre with exhibitions with artefacts, medals and maps as well as photographic displays. This is a great way to involve history into your Isle of Wight trip, and the museum provides lots of interesting and educational things to see.
