Places to visit in Binfield - ISLE OF WIGHT



Binfield is a hamlet located in the central northern part of the Isle of Wight. Located in this gorgeous area on the River Medina is the Island Harbour Yacht Marina which is a lovely and picturesque place to visit. With small vessels, yachts and boats moored in this delightful dock, it makes a lovely morning strolling around the harbour or in its nearby woodland thickets and meadows.

The Round House Tea Rooms and Gardens in Binfield could be a pleasant place to stop for tea and scones one afternoon.

There is a great sense of peace and seclusion in this part of the Isle of Wight as it is a little walk from any of the main towns, but with simply a half hour’s stroll down the river, you will encounter a wealth of pubs, shops and restaurants to enjoy and explore.

Renting a cottage in Binfield is a fabulous idea if you want to visit a different part of the Isle of Wight, or if you want to immerse yourself in tranquillity and be near a body of water other than the sea. Being near the large town of Newport makes it ideal if you want to be near the hustle and bustle but be surrounded in serenity and this can be easily done on a cottage holiday in Binfield.

Newport is 3 minutes drive from Binfield


places for children to play in Newport for rainy days
Located just three minutes down the road from Binfield, along the A3094 going south west, is the county town of Newport, one of the largest on the Isle of Wight.

In Newport there are countless things to do, including visiting the Owl and Monkey Haven which has only opened recently. With rescued primates such as rhesus macaque and several species of owl such as that boobook and the snowy owl, there are plenty of chances for you and your children to get up and close to the animals, and if you fancy a whole day out, there is a tea room, gift shop and two adventure play areas for the kids!

This is also the place to visit for a large cinema complex - great for any rainyy days or evening entertainment for the family.

Also in Newport is the 1,700 year old Roman villa with recreated scenes of what it would have looked like all those years ago, and a Roman herb garden to explore. The Newport Roman Villa is well preserved and is highly educational (as well as fun!) as it provides an exciting insight into what life would have been like for those living in third century Britain.
