Why do you like living in Whitwell

We love Whitwell because we are surrounded by beautiful countryside where we love to walk.  We are only a few minutes from Ventnor with its beautiful beach and a great variety of eaterys

Favourite Local Park is Ventnor Park.

We love the putting green, free music at the bandstand throughout the summer and special events at carnival time.  There is also an outdoor gym with amazing views over the Channel

Favourite Local Club/ Class

We have recently started climbing at West Wight sports centre.  We find the sport challenging as well as great exercise and its fun!

Favourite Child- Friendly Restaurant

Of course living in Whitwell, we have a great local Pub – The White Horse.  It is very family friendly and serves tasty home cooked food.

Favourite Place on the Island

We love Godshill, it’s where I grew up. There is a lovely walk through Beech Copse, Freemantle gate and up onto Stenbury Down.  The views of the Island are stunning.And of course Godshill is a great place to get a cream tea!

Best Children’s Book

I loved reading The BFG as a bedtime story when the girls were small.Now they are older, the girls love anything Harry Potter!

Favourite beach.

We love the natural unspoilt beauty of Compton Beach.  The girls are keen on bodyboarding and it is the perfect beach for surfing – we do this with the guys from isurf. We also enjoy fossil hunting and beach bbq’s in the summer.
