Chillerton Down is the site of an unfinished Iron Age promontory fort and the prominent feature of a 229 metre antenna for the Island's transmitting radio stations. Hang gliding & paragliding are popular on days with good thermals.
A fifteen minute drive will take you to the south coast of the island with its beach resorts and stunning coastal scenery.
The famous Carisbrooke Castle is near by, also the tiny hamlet of Gatcombe with pretty church and again, miles of footpaths and bridleways.
The nearby town of Newport has a good variety of pubs and eateries and varied selection of shops and Multi Plex cinema complex. Newport is also full of history, with a now predominantly Georgian and early Victorian architecture, and although the harbour is no longer the centre of the trade that originally gave Newport its importance, some of its former character has been preserved with narrow alleys, squares and the riverside off the Quay, and Little London.
