Ideal for those seeking a mix of coast and country, Chale is a picturesque farming village, nestled at the foot of St Catherine’s Down on the south coast of the Isle of Wight. The village itself offers an award-winning pub/restaurant with an excellent children’s play area, and breathtaking coastal and downland walks, especially to the 35ft-tall octagonal tower ‘St Catherine's Oratory’, locally known as the Pepper Pot. This medieval lighthouse was built in 1312 and is believed to be one of the oldest in Britain. The area of National Trust land around the Pepper Pot is a walker's and birdwatcher’s paradise, as the birds can be observed at eye level. Outstanding sunsets looking towards The Needles are quite a sight. Nearby you'll discover some of the island’s best sandy beaches, perfect for swimming, surfing and of course fossil collecting, where you might even discover the odd dinosaur footprint or two. Close by is Blackgang Chine, the island's premier family attraction and to the north is Osborne House, the former royal residence of Queen Victoria. Experience royal family life as you tour the nursery and private rooms of Victoria and Albert and their children. Wonder at the magnificence of the Royal Apartments including the sumptuous drawing and dining rooms, and the Indian-inspired Dubar Room. Stunning grounds looking out onto The Solent can be explored via a horse-drawn carriage or on foot.
