What’s nearby?

You’re right by Medina Riverside Park, a small country park leading down to the Medina Estuary. It’s a great spot for a picnic or to just pause and take in the views of the estuary.

Follow the trail towards Newport and you’ll soon arrive at Newport Quay where you’ll find the Quay Arts Centre with its free galleries and riverside cafe and  the Bargeman’s Rest pub with riverside terrace. At the Quay you are a two minute stroll from the town centre with its various shops, pubs and cafes.

If you’re in need of cycle repairs or parts you will find local bike shop Wight Mountain in the town centre and a branch of Halfords just outside the town centre.
