Out and about
Around Cobb’s Quay there are many natural inlets and small islands to explore by boat. Brownsea Island, the largest of the islands in the harbour, is owned by the National Trust, and its woodland, heath and wetland areas are host to birds including spoonbills, all sorts of wildlife (and the area was home to BBC’s Autumnwatch programme in 2016, for that reason!).

Out of the harbour to the east lies the Solent, offering year-round racing and sheltered cruising around the Isle of Wight. To the west is Studland Bay and Swanage, with its popular beach and white cliffs. Travelling further west, there are extensive opportunities for cruising in the unspoilt waters of Torbay and the West Country.

Freedom Berthing gives you even more freedom to explore any of the 18 marinas in our UK network stretching from Devon to Suffolk, plus over 100 European destinations in France, Spain and Italy.
