Places to Stay
Isle of Wight Accommodation in West Wight
Freshwater Bay has a wide selection of self-catering and B&B accommodation.
Leaving along the Military Road and turning inland at Brook Green there are places to stay in and around Brook, Hulverstone, Mottistone and Brighstone. Much of this Isle of Wight coastline and countryside is owned by the National Trust.
Back on the Military Road, built to help defend the Isle of Wight from invasion, there is a range of holiday accommodation from camp site to country cottage to B&B. Chale, close to the southernmost tip of the Isle of Wight, has another welcoming selection of B&Bs and vacation rentals.
Turning inland through Chale Green to Shorwell you find a real old-fashioned country pub, close to a further choice of holiday accommodation. Two of the Isle of Wight’s long distance paths, the Worsley and Shepherd’s trails, pass through the parish.
To the north, the ancient parish of Shalfleet offers accommodation in Bouldnor, Wellow, Ningwood, Newbridge, Hampstead and Cranmore. The main road close to the north coast of the Isle of Wight leads to Yarmouth with another wide variety of self-catering and B&B accommodation.
Most of the accommodation in Totland, between the Isle of Wight ferry at Yarmouth and the Needles, is close to Turf Walk. This has extensive views of the Solent. There is more B&B and self-catering accommodation on Alum Bay Old Road towards Freshwater Bay and Farringford, former home of Alfred, Lord Tennyson, the Isle of Wight’s second most famous Victorian resident.
