Getting around
Niton is on a regular bus route - perfect if you want to leave the car at home and do some walking. The Island also has extensive cycle routes if you are feeling active and cycle hire shops will deliver and collect from the cottage. Otherwise, we would recommend a car for exploring the Island.
