Newtown – Isle of Wight

Newtown church.

Newtown is a fascinating little village that has been settled since before the Norman conquest. It is now overseen by the National Trust and is definitely worth a visit.

Looking out over the marshes to the natural harbour at Newtown

Samphire in it’s natural habitat!  Samphire (also known as glasswort) is a succulent plant that grows in salty estuary areas. It is lovely eaten raw (although salty!) or cooked in a stir fry or steamed.

Cashew nut and vegetable paella at the New Inn, Shalfleet. An old favourite of ours and only a few minutes drive from Newtown. The perfect watering hole for lunch.

Roast beef and gravy.

Children’s serve of fresh cod and chips. This was so tender!
