Places to visit in Adgestone - ISLE OF WIGHT


Adgestone isle of Wight

Adgestone is a hamlet in East Wight, less than 2 miles as the crow flies from Sandown on the east coast. There are fabulous views over the east coast from a view point on the Upper Adgestone Road, also known as the Quiet Road. Anyone who appreciates nature, wild flowers and lovely views should walk or cycle this peaceful and narrow rural road. See pink and white rambling roses and honeysuckle growing through the hedgerows and swifts darting overhead during the summer.

Brading Butterfly Walk on Adgestone Quiet RoadFollow the Adgestone Quiet Road eastwards and you will come to a gate for the Brading Butterfly Walk on your right. You may wish to take a detour to spot butterflies at this point or to continue down Adgestone Quiet Road until it reaches Adgestone Vineyard. Do take a look at the wild flowers growing at the vineyard's entrance, there are some rare species there. Perhaps phone in advance and arrange a wine tasting session and purchase a bottle or two of wine to take back to your holiday cottage. The narrow lane left at the junction is called Sheep Lane and it's very easy to imagine farmers driving a flock sheep down the lane for shearing.

Adgestone is a beautiful place for a self-catering country holiday on the Isle of Wight. The camping and caravanning club have a camp site there and there are plenty of country cottages near Adgestone to rent for a few days or a week. The nearest railway stations are Brading and Sandown.

adgestone vineyardAdgestone is a very small vineyard where it is possible to sample a few wines. Cream teas are also served.

Do not expect more than a self-guided tour. More of a place to stop for a rest and tea whilst exploring.
