About the neighbourhood
Shorwell is such a picturesque village, with its 12th century church, beautiful thatched cottages, three historical Manor Houses, small shop, award-winning pub, playground and was one of Queen Victoria’s favourite places to visit on the island.
The area is also a real walkers’ paradise, with the chalk downs leading you towards the west coast beaches, passing some most spectacular scenery and ancient farmsteads on route towards the sandy beaches of Brighstone, Brook and Compton.
Alternatively, walk towards the centre of the isle, through the peaceful hamlets of Chillerton and Gatcombe and visit the impressive Carisbrooke Castle.
