Places to visit in Binstead - ISLE OF WIGHT



Binstead is a small village in the north eastern part of the Isle of Wight, and is located nearby to the larger towns of Ryde and Newport. Situated on the coast, Binstead has a lovely public sandy beach that never gets too busy compared with the larger seaside towns, making it a wonderful place to visit if you want to get away from the crowds. With a local shop and one pub, the amenities in Binstead are small but it is very close to the bigger attractions at Ryde and Newport, meaning you are never too far away from some of the main goings on of the island. There is also a post office and all the amenities one needs in order to obtain provisions for a self-catering cottage break.

Renting a cottage in Binstead is a good idea if you want to be close to bigger towns without actually being in them, and you will get a lovely country and village community feel during your stay. With wonderful country walks, smaller, emptier beaches and enchanting woodlands, Binstead is a wonderful hidden gem on the Isle of Wight.
