This Edwardian resort is home to a lovely pub, large houses and lots of holiday cottages that overlook the Solent, and renting a self-catering cottage here is a brilliant idea if you want a tranquil and romantic time away with your loved one.

Seagrove Bay beach is good for families, it's a narrow strip of gently shelving sand on the east coast. The only drawback is the lack of parking which means that dad has to drop the family off and then find a parking space in the village.

The Sea View Yacht Club was founded in 1893 and has its home in the village. Summer regattas take place with tourists and locals, where traditional undertakings and races happen, such as the diving competition. If visiting Seaview during the summer, then definitely pop along to watch the regatta to get a sense of community spirit in the village.
