A few minutes walk from the site lies the village of Niton. Niton is a pretty village with a long history which can be seen from the wonderful array of thatched and stone cottages and Victorian houses, that line the small roads. There is a well stocked convenience store, a local Newsagents and Tea Room, a Chemist shop and a wonderful store selling local crafts and many other items.
There is also a beautiful village church, St John the Baptist.
Those looking for a step back in history will be charmed by Niton.
