YHA Isle of Wight Brighstone originally began as a wooden scout hut for the local Brighstone Scouts. The building underwent a complete rebuild after a successful National Lottery application and is now under joint partnership by the local Scout group and YHA.

Manager recommends: Walk to the top of the downs above Brighstone and look for the Long Stone. Stop to take in the views and smell the air fresh off the Atlantic. Next stop – the Caribbean!
