lndulge your inner Doctor Doolittle at this working farm, where the creature conversationalists include water buffalos, alpacas and micro pigs, as well as more common farm breeds, birds and small pets. You can even try talking to the tiddlers: the beach is only a hundred yards away down the coastal path. Good sea fishing can be had on the beach. Bring your own rod!
Visitors to Grange Farm can take their pick of level, well-drained electric or non-electric pitches in different locations and sizes. All have miles of lovely views, either out to sea, or inland across forested hills and the pretty village of Brighstone. The essential amenities include free hot showers, plus a coin-operated bath (£2), laundrette and drinks machines; the shop is stocked with everything you could possibly need and the sizeable children’s playground has more than the average kit.
The site is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so the local terrain is great for ramblers, cyclists, anglers and fossil hunters alike.
A short walk away is Brighstone village, home to pubs, tea rooms and shops, including the only National Trust shop on the Isle of Wight, plus a park for the kids. On the outskirts of the village, visitors can uncover the Isle of White Pearl, home to the largest pearl jewellery collection in the country (warning: it could prove tricky to leave without a souvenir.)
The thrills and spills of the Blackgang Chine adventure park are about ten minutes away by car. Other recommendations include Chessel Pottery, where guests can decorate their own masterpiece, or just browse the shops and have an award-winning cream tea; and the Needles Park at Alum Bay, for a boat ride or chairlift view of the iconic rocks and lighthouse, a trip around a sweet factory or glass blowing studio, plus other family-oriented attractions and rides.
There’s an indoor pool, gym and exercise classes at the West Wight Leisure Centre in Freshwater (seven miles from the park), which also runs a programme of summer activities for children.
There are two ponds in Yafford where you can go pond fishing.
