Places to visit near Marks Corner - ISLE OF WIGHT

Marks Corner


Marks Corner is a small settlement towards the northern part of the Isle of Wight, close to the county town of Newport. The hamlet is set next to the stunning woodland of Parkhurst Forest which is one of the most peaceful and beautiful parts of the island. Parkhurst Forest is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and hidden beneath the soaring trees and ancient woodland is an abundance of rare wildlife such as the red squirrel and plenty of birds such as the nightjar, the great spotted woodpecker and the long eared owl. This public copse is the second largest to be found on the Isle of Wight and is simply a wonderful area to rent a self-catering cottage in due to its proximity to Newport and the gorgeous woodland backdrop.

Marks Corner is a quiet place but this makes it brilliant for those on a romantic break, or for wildlife lovers who prefer to be surrounded by nature as opposed to busy shops and traffic. The coast is only two miles away if you want to relax on the Isle of Wight’s shoreline, or you can rent a bicycle and ramble through the woods, stopping by for a picnic beneath the trees.
