The village of Brighstone

The Three Bishops is located right in the heart of the small village of Brighstone in the South West of the Isle of Wight, around half a mile from the Heritage Coast which is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest and is incredibly popular with walkers, hikers and fossil hunters. The area is also an area of outstanding natural beauty and the town is well known as a starting point for multiple walks including the round the island coastal walks and the stunning Tennyson Trail.

Explore the area

Cycling is a major attraction on the Isle of Wight and we are perfectly situated just off the island’s main coastal road, the Military Road. This is one of the most photographed roads in the country due to the stunning views across the Needles and Solent to the cliffs of Dorset. We also provide electric bicycle charging for guests in a secure area.

Well know amongst fossil hunters and enthusiasts, Brighstone is less than a mile from the cliffs and beaches that are famous in the fossil world, and that featured in the live BBC1 program, the Island. Brighstone Bay is the perfect place to find dinosaur footprints in the rocks at low tide and we would be happy to arrange fossil hunting tours on request.
