Places to visit near Hulverstone - ISLE OF WIGHT



Hulverstone is a lovely rural location for pony trekking, walking and cyclingNear the western central coast of the Isle of Wight is the very small hamlet of Hulverstone. Consisting of only a handful of houses and residents, Hulverstone also features a pub, the Sun Inn, which dates back to 600 years ago. The pretty and thatched Sun Inn has stunning sea views, a relaxing pub garden and an interesting history as it was once used in smuggling undertakings! With a couple of farms that are also bed and breakfasts, Hulverstone is very small and is a real back-to-nature sort of place, but allows visitors to really appreciate the natural beauty that can be found on the Isle of Wight. Perfect for those who like walking trails or nature photography, Hulverstone is a lovely little place to visit on the island.

Brighstone Forest is about 1 km away, a lovely place for woodland walks, pony trekking or mountain biking.

Also close by are plenty of other villages to explore, and nothing is ever too far away on the Isle of Wight. One village which is literally about two minutes away, just down a couple of roads, is Brook. With plenty of self-catering cottages to rent for a holiday on the island, Brook is home to the stunning Brook Green, a National Trust owned section of land that is teeming with wildlife and just a stone’s throw away from Hulverstone.

There is plenty to do here for visitors such as painting your own pieces of pottery in the studio for you to take home, and browsing the shop is as fun as the working studio itself with lots to look at and buy such as wooden toys, hand-made cards and stunningly decorated Chessell Ware, which all make a wonderful and distinctive gift for a loved one back at home.
