A hidden Gem, known mostly to visiting yachtsman and everyone across the Solent in Lymington. The Hut sits on the Waters edge at Colwell Bay with uninterrupted views of the turquoise Sea at Colwell bay, and out across the Solent to Hurst Castle. On a clear day, you can see all the way to…

The Island's most hip restaurant on the west side of the Island. Go there for the amazing sunsets and seafood. The restaurant has a boat to collect sailors coming from Lymington and a shuttle to collect Londoners arriving in Yarmouth! It is expensive and so popular you need to book well in…

Outstanding fishy menu but they do serve other stuff too. Amazing place to watch the sunsets. It's fun watching people come over from the mainland on their boats, anchor up and come ashore to eat. Some people even arrive by helicopter! You must book as it's a way to go and then be disappointed. It…

A fantastic location and setting for a bite to eat in the Summer months if you are along the West of the Island. Great beach location, fantastic service and exceptionally delicious local food. It's not to be missed!

“A very welcome addition to the West Wight a few years ago, Tapnell Farm has seen extensive expansion to the attraction over the last couple of years with even more planned for 2020, with the inclusion of an outdoor water park. The Farm has multiple areas suitable for all ages, although the main play areas are aimed at young children. The enormous play-barn at the far end of the park, contains a very large haybale climbing area, which includes tunnels and slides. Alongside this you’ll find a climbing wall and trampolines and a fast Zip line for the slightly larger kids. One end of the barn opens onto a tarmacked race circuit for the numerous peddle-cars available to pick up and race. The centre of the farm hosts a multitude of animals to see and touch, including some more exotic species as well as plenty of farmyard favourites such as pigs, lambs, donkeys, etc. There are regular feeding and interactive events taking place daily. Outside, the growing collections of attractions includes, climbing frames, sledge runs, jumping pillows and more animals to see, including Wallabies and Meercats. On the far side of the large central Café / picnic area, you’ll find the indoor soft-play area, which is always lively. This large open space and climbing area is suitable for all ages and there’s even a special area for toddlers. Alongside the soft-play there is an area for riding toy sit-on tractors and building block area. Just outside of the play barn you’ll find The Cow Co Restaurant, which takes pride of place in an old dis-used straw barn. The barn retains its charm, and the rustic feel of the farm and offers a menu teeming with fresh dishes many of which contain ingredients from local producers. Tapnell Farm is open daily, 9-5 ”
