Rhyll and Phillip Island

Just 6k from Cowes lies the little seaside village of Rhyll.   In season Rhyll comes alive with keen anglers, sailors and holiday makers.

All year round visitors enjoy walking along the unspoilt beachfront and exploring the mangrove boardwalk of the Rhyll Inlet, which is a haven for pelicans, black swans, gulls and straw necked ibis.

The all-tide boat ramp is a great attraction, with BBQs, two playgrounds, tennis courts and public toilets to cater for all the family.

A full range of dining is available, from restaurants to take-aways, with a well provisioned general store to supply your day to day requirements.   Come and stay overnight, or for several nights, and enjoy the tranquillity of Rhyll.

You can find us just across the road from the Rhyll Trout and Bush Tucker Farm (currently closed).
