The island can also be explored from the open-top buses that stop regularly at various collection points. Outdoor pursuits include cycling, riding, sailing, golf and fishing. Beach ½ mile.

Guest Comments

"From the outside Heyvon isn't as appealing as it is from the inside but, when you look over the harbour from the rear deck, watch the marine traffic and experience the serenity of the location you're lost in tranquility. This is what holidays are all about, relax, enjoy the environment and chill. Feed the swans, watch the ducks, spot the fish swimming past, see two tides a day ebb and flow like inhaling and exhaling huge breaths of nature.Walk up to the village (15 mins), visit the Olde Village Inn, the fishmongers, the butchers, the Co-op, the bakery, they're all quaintly amassed around the high street proffering their wares and they're all excellent.If you like seafood, make sure you visit the Best Dressed Crab on the pontoon in the harbour, their seafood is exceptional. Also further into the village, on the cliff edge is the Crab & Lobster Pub, another seafood specialist, again fantastic.Would we stay at Heyvon again, definitely, would we recommend, definitely, can't wait to return.Thank you Tony and Diane for making us feel so welcome and for all the little touches which made our stay so special. See you soon."
