Summer A very sad situation on the south side of the island where there was a serious landslip onto the Undercliff after heavy winter rains. The road between Niton and Ventnor is closed and there is no access even for residents.
Family friendly pub close to Blackgang Chine with lovely garden which has views of the Needles and a good children's play area. Good food too!
Appuldurcombe House, Wroxall. This is the shell of a 17th century house, once the most important house on the island. Part of it has been re-roofed. It is surrounded by lovely gardens and is a magical place. Our three year old grandson loves it, especially the scary cellars! Run by English Heritage. Not so keen on the Bird of Prey Centre adjoining but tickets are available just for the house.
