How to get here

Car

Entering Newport on the dual carriageway from Yarmouth or Cowes turn left at the roundabout and immediately right to go up through Barton and taplers towards downend. Turn right at the next roundabout and left immediately after the pub (Hare and Hounds). Continue along this road for about 21/2 miles and turn right towards Brading. Ignore the large layby on the left and park in the second smaller layby. The entrance to the reserve is about 10 metres on to the left down the marked footpath. From March to October the Isle of Wight
Steam Train runs from Ryde to Wootton, with a request stop at Ashey. There is a footpath leading past East Ashey Manor into Eaglehead and Bloodstone Copses. Bus routes 6, 7 and 7a pass through Brading.
