General

  • Working farm with alpacas, water buffaloes and micro pigs
  • Beach only 100 yards away
  • Free hot showers, launderette, playground and well-stocked shop

Indulge your inner Doctor Dolittle at this working farm, where the creature conversationalists include water buffaloes, 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 rod.)

Grange Farm has miles of lovely views, either out to sea, or inland across forested hills and the pretty village of Brighstone. Its essential amenities include free hot showers, plus a coin-operated bath, launderette 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.

    We will definitely be staying at Grange Farm again. The little person loved her first taste of independence and happily made friends and played in the playground for hours at a time. The sea view, beach, farm, and facilities made the holiday very special and one we hope to enjoy again next year.

Directions


From Fishbourne or Cowes, follow the signs to Newport's Coppins Bridge. At the roundabout take the town centre lane. Look for Morrisons near the bus station and at McDonald's take the right lane then the first turning left, for the main route out of town to Carisbrooke. From Carisbrooke take the A3323 road to Shorwell and Brighstone.

At Brighstone turn left at the church into New Road, at the end of this road, Grange Farm is in front of you.

From Yarmouth follow the signs to Freshwater Bay, at Freshwater Bay follow the A3055 for 5 miles until you pass the Isle of Wight Pearl. You'll pass a garage and we are the next turning on the right, opposite the turning to Brighstone Village.

Bus routes: if travelling from Newport, take the no.12 bus to Brighstone Village (walking past the church into New Road, about 0.75-mile walk to the coast).

The Island Explorer travels right around the coast, stopping outside our farm entrance.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

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 Wight 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 for pond fishing.

Must see

  • Isle of Wight Pearl (0.6 miles)
  • Blackgang Chine (5.2 miles)
  • Carisbrooke Castle (5.5 miles)

National Trust
