Day 1:Bristol to Bembridge
Setting out from Bristol we crossed the New Forest to Lymington where we boarded the Wightlink Ferry to Yarmouth. Once on the Isle of Wight, we took a meandering route along the South coast of the island, taking in Freshwater Bay and Blackgang Chine and Shanklin before arriving at our lodgings at the Harbourside View Houseboat.
Day 2: Bembridge to Sandown via Whiteciffe Bay
On day 2, we set out westwards along the beach from Bembridge heading towards Sandown via Whitecliff Bay and Culver Haven. It turns out that Sandown, although not lacking a certain charm, is rather sad and neglected. The scenery on the way there though, is nothing short of spectacular. The rail system, using old London Tube trains, like Sandown is in sore need of sprucing up but is very efficient and inexpensive. We took the train to Ryde and a bus back to Bembridge where we rewarded ourselves with a meal at Shêd, the local tapas bar.
Day 3: St Helen’s, Priory Bay, Seaview, Ryde and Brading Marsh
Our final day saw us set out from Bembridge Harbour this time heading East to St. Helen’s Duver and then to Priory Bay. Cutting through the woods to Seaview, we meandered past Puckpool Park and Appley tower before wandering around the town centre of Ryde. Boarding the train to Brading, we set out across Brading Marsh heading towards Bembridge Windmill, ending the day at Ye Olde Village Inn in Bembridge.
