Surf at Compton Bay quite near the Needles – the surf dudes beach – with a nice ice cream van in the car park. Further along, Dinosaur footprints are visible in the rocks – organised tours are also available.

If your kids aren’t so keen on walking – have you tried Geocaching? It’s basically a hi-tech treasure hunt – done from your smart phone/GPS. Just download the free app – press search and you will find a wealth of caches all over the Island waiting to be found.

There are plenty of places to hire bikes throughout the Island, including Cowes . You can even have electric bikes delivered to you ( over 14yrs only). There are plenty of great Cycle routes all over the Island. Cycling along the river from Cowes is lovely, and easy – take a picnic maybe and eat by the river.

If you hire bikes from The Bike Shed in Merstone ( outside Newport) you can cycle along a picturesque and flat old railway track right across to the south of the Island. Again taking a picnic is advisable. organise Kayaking, Coasteering, mountain boarding, climbing and lots more including paragliding, Laser combat & Clay pigeon shooting.

There are several places that run Kayaking and sailing sessions / courses for kids. Try Medina Valley Centre, IWAC and UKSA. – As seen on the BBC! Award winning Goodleaf Tree Climbing are the UK’s recreational tree climbing specialists. They offer enjoyable outdoor experiences for ages 8 to 80 in a designated AONB on the sunny Isle of Wight.

Guest Comments

"It was an absolute privilege to be the first 'official' guests in the newly built 'Into the Woods' tree-house. Whilst the tree-house itself was built by an external tree-house provider, all of the interior has been built by the owners themselves and the attention to detail and use of natural materials makes for just a stunning finish. It is truly a unique experience - a bit like camping 'by being at one with nature', but with all the comforts of being in a self catering unit up in with the trees." - Mike & Tina Cox
