Places to visit near Norton - ISLE OF WIGHT

Norton

 

Norton is a small hamlet located close to the north western coast of the Isle of Wight, near the port of Yarmouth. With stunning views of the nearby yachts sailing by, comforting sea breezes and warm, bright skies, renting a self-catering cottage in this area is a great idea if you want to visit a quieter part of the Isle of Wight, or if you want to explore the north coast in depth. Overlooking the Solent, which is the body of sea that separates the island from mainland England, you will be inspired to just completely relax and unwind, and you will feel the stresses of normal day-to-day life floating out of you.

Norton is quaint and rather small, but those who love walking will be spoilt for choice with stunning scenery to ramble through. There are dense woodlands and copses close at hand, as well as coastal paths and the harbour, and a stay in this hamlet makes for a very romantic one. If you are holidaying with your loved one, then the peacefulness and tranquillity of Norton makes for an excellent choice to spend some time together on the beautiful Isle of Wight.

Warner holidays for adults (generally middle aged and over) have a holiday resort just north of Norton at Norton Grange and provide employment in the area.

Places to visit near Norton

The incredible port of Yarmouth is only one mile from Norton, so it is basically on the doorstep to the hamlet and can be visited on a daily basis. There is a lot to do in Yarmouth, from browsing through the town’s many shops and boutiques, to sampling delicious food from the varied selection of pubs, restaurants and cafes that line the streets, and there are also plenty of places of history and culture to see.

Yarmouth Castle is a small but prominent structure in the town, overlooking the Solent. With artefacts and displays inside, this castle makes a wonderful afternoon visit if you fancy doing something a little different on the Isle of Wight while soaking up the history and unique atmosphere of the island.

Also in Yarmouth is the fun and fascinating Fort Victoria. This fort dates from the mid-19th century and is home to the Underwater Archaeology Centre with a planetarium and model railway housed inside. A trip to Fort Victoria is a wonderful idea if you are visiting the Isle of Wight with the whole family, as children will love the centre as well as be educated by it!

Cannons at the The Needles National TrustVisitors to this part of the Isle of Wight would inevitably visit the Needles and the associated park. It is well worth a visit, especially the National Trust owned Needles. There is a whole host of places to visit and boat trips in season. The blue double decker tourist bus ferries people to the Needles and other attractions. Buy a daily ticket for best value.

Norton is charming, quaint and petite, but makes for a lovely cottage holiday for you, your family and loved ones.
