We love the Isle of Wight and all it has to offer. Whether it’s walking the coastal paths, walking with Alpaca’s, visiting a historic building or cycling the islands many bike trails, we have lots of information to help make the most of your stay.

We have maps, booklets on the island and good local knowledge. Ask and we will do what we can to point you in the right direction or arrange things for you.


There are so many places to explore along our local coastline – please ask us if you would like us to print out any maps. You don’t even need to leave Totland; there are stunning coastal path walks accessible directly from the hotel. We are a dog-friendly hotel, so your dog can enjoy our beautiful local walks too. See our dog policy for more details.

We are spoilt for choice on the island for incredible historic houses, castles and forts to visit. Osborne House, holiday home of Queen Victoria, is just half an hour away by car. Carisbrooke Castle where Charles I was held prisoner during the Civil War is 20 minutes away by car. And of course, the Needles and its famous battery.
