Red Squirrel Trail. Cowes to Newport

Even when it’s a bit wet and windy outside, it’s always worth getting out! Such a lovely stroll along the River Medina this morning, blew away a few cobwebs :-)

We live only half a mile away from the start of the pretty Red Squirrel Trail which runs from Cowes, along the old railway line, to Newport and beyond to Sandown. The Isle of Wight is rather hilly just about everywhere except for this trail so it may offer a welcome respite if you’ve had a challenging few days!

The Bargeman’s Rest pub is a lovely place to stop and refuel when you reach Newport. Sit outside in the sunshine and watch the boats in Newport harbour.

If you cycle to work in Newport, maybe at Vestas or Gurit, The Caledon is a great place to stay over. We have a fantastic new secure bike store for up to 12 bikes, each with their own individual locking facility. Click on Book Now to see up to date availability and rates.
