Borthwood, Alverstone and Newchurch Walk Isle of Wight

The Isle of Wight is a wonderful place for cycling and walking and many of our guests recommend walks to us so we can share them with others holidaying on the Isle of Wight. This walk is an easy to moderate walk on the East of the Island and visits the woodland at Borthwood, the nature reserve at Alverstone and the historic village of Newchurch. This walk is nearby for anyone holidaying around Shanklin, Godshill, St Helens, Seaview and Sandown.

For a map of the route visit Borthwood, Alverstone and Newchurch Walk Os Maps link.

The walk starts at Borthwood but it is easy to follow if you wish to start at Newchurch or Alverstone. Park your car at the small car park on Alverstone Rd near where the road branches off to Forest Road.  The Postcode PO36 0LE will help your satnav find it.

Wetland Walkway across the nature reserve Isle of Wight
Wetland Walkway

From the car park walk into the woodland following the footpath and continue straight but bearing left at any forks. The woodland is full of wildlife and it is common to see red squirrels if you sit quietly and wait. You will exit the wood on the North East corner and join a tar road for about 10 meters before bearing right onto a gravel track (do not take the track going behind you but continue in the same direction as you exited the woodland).

This farm track takes you down to some housing and a small farm. Continue straight and follow the footpath through a gate and across the field in an Easterly direction. This path quickly reaches the edge of the wetland reserve and a gate leads onto a raised wooden path across the reserve. Follow the wooden path to the t junction and turn right through two gates before turning left to walk in a northerly direction.

Orchard Picnic Spot Isle of Wight

Here the small path joins a larger gravel road onto which you turn right and follow it East with the Sandown and Shanklin Golf Club on your right. After a short way you reach the road and turn left for 10 to 15 meters before tuning left again into a small orchard. Here there is a picnic table and a orchard garden with sculptures carved in wood. Follow the path through the orchard and through an arch to join the main Sandown to Newport cycle route.

Turn left onto the cycle route and follow the wide track to Alverstone. Either side of the cycle route is open countryside and a rich variety of birdlife. Look out for birds of prey by looking along the rows of fences. The birds like to sit on the fence posts and observe their surroundings.

Sandown to Newchurch Cycle Route Isle of Wight

At Alverstone the tack crosses the road and heads onwards towards Newchurch. Along this stretch there fields either side of the track and many contain long haired highland cows.

When you reach the next road you have reached the outskirts of Newchurch. Turn left and follow the road into the centre of Newchurch where there is a public house serving food. The pub has a lovely pub garden with views over the countryside. Newchurch also has a historic church with a wooden spire.

Newchurch Countryside Isle of Wight

In Newchurch take School Lane on the left and follow it past the school and down to a field. Turn right to follow the edge of the the field before crossing over to continue along the path to the road. Turn left onto Skinner’s Hill Road  and up the hill, down the hill and then up the hill to a junction. Continue straight on and turn right into the woodland at the small style 20 meters further on. Follow the path till you reach the path in the woods you followed at the beginning of the walk. Turn right and retrace your earlier steps back to the car park.

The Long Isle of Wight Cycle Route

Godshill Rural Cycle Route
Isle of Wight Cycling

If you are looking for a longer bike ride on the Isle of Wight you might want to try The Big One.

The Big One is a cycle route which goes right across the Isle of Wight from Yarmouth in the West to Bembridge on the East Coast. The route goes along the spine of the Isle of Wight and has fantastic views of the West Coast as well as a number of small villages with good pubs at which to stop along the way. Although this is a challenging cycle ride it can be spread over an entire day or two days so that you can stop and enjoy the scenery along the way.

The Big One is just one of a number of great bike rides on the Isle of Wight so if you are looking for something a little easier or want to look at our other long bike rides go to our Isle of Wight Cycling pages

Isle of Wight Cycling Holidays

Isle of Wight CyclingThe Isle of Wight has hundreds of tracks and bridal ways for mountain bikes and quiet country roads for road bikers. A good system of dedicated cycle paths allows you to explore the Isle of Wight on your bike without having to share the road with cars and also forms a fairly comprehensive network for reaching almost anywhere on the Island.

To help you get the most out of a cycling holiday on the Isle of Wight you might want to visit the Isle of Wight Cycling pages where there are described cycle routes along signposted cycle tracks and unsignposted routes as well as maps and a lot more Isle of Wight cycling information.

Top 10 Isle of Wight Family Holiday Activities

A great family holiday is something we treasure down the years and warms the heart. The best way to get the most out of a family holiday is with a little planning and some great activities so here are some of our recommendations compiled with the help of our guests.

Beach CricketBeach Games

Often associated with warm sunny days in July and August but equally enjoyable, or maybe even more enjoyable, on Spring and Autumn days when there are fewer fellow beach goers to get in the way. Children and adults alike can get a great mix of fun and exercise with a healthy dose of competition. The old favourites of football and cricket are just as fun as ever but there are a host of other games here to try with the family – www.activityvillage.co.uk/beach-games-and-activities

To choose an Isle of Wight beach to enjoy some beach games on go to our Isle of Wight Beach Guide.

Isle of Wight History

It is harder and harder to escape the fact that history is now fun and the Isle of Wight has a number of places where children can have fun with history. Amongst the many historic sites on the Island are Carisbrooke Castle, Brading Roman Villa, Needles Old Battery and Bembridge Windmill which offer special activities for children and families.

Free to enter historic sites include the Isle of Wight Rocket Testing site above the Needles Old Battery on the Western tip of the Isle of Wight and the Culver Battery with large gun placements at the end of Culver Downs North of Sandown at the Eastern tip of the Island.

Animals and Wildlife

The Isle of Wight is a very special place for wildlife. There are a number of beautiful woodlands where you can spot red squirrels, badgers and woodpeckers as well as larger animals like deer. Good places to enjoy this natural show include Borthwood Copse near Lake (nr Sandown Airport) and the Tennyson Downs between Freshwater and Carisbrooke.

To guarantee a close encounter with animals there are a number of parks with rescue animals including the Donkey Sanctuary near Godshill, Amazon World near Arretton and the Owl and Monkey Sanctuary near Wootton.

Isle of Wight Walking HolidayFamily Walks

There are number of excellent walking areas on the Isle of Wight and choosing one suitable for your particular family shouldn’t be too difficult. Over the years we have heard a lot of great recommendations from guests about good places to walk and have learnt a few tricks for choosing a walk which will really appeal.

Walking with younger children one has tailor the walk for little legs so a small loop around a park or gardens is ideal and won’t take you too far from conveniences such as a loo, cafe or your car. For this type of walk you may wish to consider Ventnor Botanical Gardens where there are a number of small paths between the exotic plants.

For older children there needs to be lots of variation and stuff to explore along the way and for this a section of coastal path is a great choice. Sections we have been recommended include Freshwater to the Needles via the Tennyson Trail, where there is a hill top monument and the rocket testing site mentioned above, and the section between Yarmouth and Shalfleet where there are remote beaches and a sections of raised gantries across flooded estuaries. Both have amazing views and are between 2 and 3 hours in length. Busses take you back to the start or you can complete the walk in a loop.

Isle of Wight Steam RailwayFor longer walks you may wish to consider completing one of the Isle of Wight walking trails such as the Stenbury Trail, Worsley Trail or Tennyson Trail.

It is important to keep the children engaged so we recommend to give each a map and a compass and get them plan and plot the route (you might have to take away their GPS enabled smart phones). Point at land marks in the distance and ask what they are if they seem to be finding it too easy.

Adventure Activities

The Island is known for extreme sports and you can safely try them with the family with the help of experienced guides. Surfing, kayaking, climbing, sailing, and much more is on offer from adventure activity companies on the Isle of Wight. On the West of the Isle of Wight visit Isle of Wight Adventure Activities at Freshwater and on the East visit Tackt-Isle at St Helens.

Isle of Wight Steam Railway

For children who like steam trains this is heaven. The Isle of Wight Steam Railway lets you learn about steam trains, ride on steam trains and even poke around in the engine sheds.

Isle of Wight Cycling Festival

Family Cycling Holiday

Cycle routes and cycle paths are now well developed on the Isle of Wight and often completely separate from the road network making them very safe for family trips. Bike hire is available across the Island (Isle of Wight Bike Hire) and they will give you a leaflet on where all the routes are. Alternatively view our Isle of Wight Cycle Routes page.

Again, family bike rides have to take into account the age of the children but for younger children there are shorter and flatter bike rides. One of theses is a section of the route from Newport to Sandown via Merstone, Newchurch and Alverstone. The ride runs along the valley by the small river and has railway bridges, wildlife, horned cowes (in adjacent fields) and conveniently spaced public houses serving food and refreshment. The ride from Yarmouth to Freshwater is another short flat ride and you can stop half way at the Red Lion Public House for food on the way.

Families with older children may wish to complete whole biking routes such as the Sunshine Trail which is a loop inland from Shanklin and goes to Godshill where there is an excellent public house for food. On the West of the Island there are more challenging and more undulating routes but great if you need to burn more energy. Following the Tennyson Trail from Carisbrooke to Freshwater is very demanding but there are lots of places to stop along the way and enjoy refreshment or the views.

Take a good map and get the kids to guide. Getting them to find places with a grand view that might be good for a rest or picnic just from the map is a good challenge to set.

New Ways to Explore the Isle of Wight

Traveling and seeing interesting new places is often a matter of combining luck and preparation but there are some cool new ways of exploring the Isle of Wight.

  • GeoCaching

    Where you hunt for a hidden cache (like treasure) by following a GPS coordinates. This is like an Island wide treasure hunt and keeps children and adults busy searching and second guessing. Once you find a cache you can add a small item to it or swap and item. Usually these are small treasure items such as an unusual coin or a poem but occasionally they are something really special. The great thing about this way of exploring is that you visit places you might not otherwise find. Don’t forget a map as GPS only gets you so far. – Isle of Wight Geocaching

  • Old Postcard Compare

    This is a simple way to explore but really gets children enthused. Get some old postcards of the Isle of Wight (often easiest online such at this site http://www.isleofwightpictures.co.uk/page051.htm or by doing a Google Image Search) and then going around to try to find the exact place it was taken. You can then take your own photo to compare how things have changed over time.

Adventure Parks

The family trip to the fun park always fills children with glee and there are two large ones to choose on the Island. Blackgang Chine near Niton on the South of the Isle of Wight and Robin Hill near Arretton at the heart of the Island.

Steephill CoveTraditional Children Activities

The Isle of Wight is often somewhere parents remember coming when they were children and it is a great place to pass on happy memories of activities you did when you were a child. The following have been recommended by our holiday guests.

  • Kite Flying

    Great locations include the grassland park at Shanklin or atop any of the hills on the Island. A ridge of hills running down the middle of the Island gets plenty of updraft and is great for kite flying. Remember to be a safe distance away from power lines and other dangers. …and make sure you let the kids fly the kites some of the time.

  • Stone Skimming

    The best stone skimming is done on the shingle beaches along the North West coast of the Isle of Wight. You need flat calm water and a good supply of flat stones.

  • Camp Building

    Building a small shelter in the woods always keeps children amused. Only collect materials that have fallen naturally. A good design is important to have in mind and anything which blends naturally with the surroundings and conceals you well will be great as a hide for watching wildlife. Woodlands which are very suitable include Borthwood Copse and American Woods but any of a number of old english woodland areas will do.

  • Hide and Seek

    Clearly define your area and put down firm rules which apply to the area and keep everyone safe. Hiding too well can cause problems.

  • Treasure Hunt

    Creating a treasure hunt takes a little planning and the more planning the better it is. Having a pattern for where things are hidden makes it more enjoyable. For instance hide all the treasure in trees or under logs.
