Why do you like living in Bembridge

Bembridge is just fab, a traditional English village with a butchers, a bakers, a fish shop and a farm shop, a chemist, a couple of pubs, lovely churches and lots of cafes and beaches.

Favourite Local Park

Grace loves Puckpool, it is great to cycle there in the Summer from Bembridge and our local Steyne Park is a favourite with Isaac, who cycles there with his friends.

Favourite Local Club/ Class

Brading Haven Yacht Club for the all round family activities and lots of sailing and the Shotokan Karate Club at Steyne Park, Bembridge, helping our family to stay fit and healthy..

Favourite Child- Friendly Restaurant

The Old Village Inn in Bembridge, always great food and a familiar greeting even though we do not go often, they always greet us as if we are regulars.

Favourite Place on the Island

We love so many places, it is hard to pick one… so up there at the top would be St Helen’s Duver, Culver Down, Carisbrooke castle, Tapnell Farm

Best Children’s Book

We really like Enid Blyton’s Famous Five stories, the ‘Series of Unfortunate Events’ by Lemony Snicket and ‘Secret Agent Jack Stalwart’ and his adventures across the world by Elizabeth Singer Hunt.

Favourite beach. 

Forelands beach, Bembridge…when the tide is out and the ledge is exposed, it is truly awesome whatever the weather or the season.
