Award-winning Corner Cottage is part of the Nettlecombe Farm Estate which is nestled in the heart of the rolling South Wight countryside, at the top of a quiet lane around half a mile from the village of Whitwell. It is a working farm that offers luxurious self-catering holiday accommodation.
Corner Cottage is a stunning tastefully refurbished stone cottage that boasts many original features, sleeping 8 people in 4 bedrooms it is perfect for larger groups and families. It is rated 4 star gold award by Quality in Tourism (Visit England).
Come and explore the farm and make friends with our many animals. In spring there is often a messy, milky opportunity to help feed the orphan lambs. Along with our chickens, cattle, sheep, geese, turkeys, peacocks, pigs and goats we also have 2 reindeer, 'Comet & Dancer', an emu and giant rabbits. During April - September you can join the farmer on the morning feeding rounds (Mon-Fri) which is a unique experience often enjoyed as much by adults as the kids!!
The cottages are surrounded by lakes and green fields. There are plenty of grassed play areas, we also have play equipment for toddlers, a large Wendy House and a great wooden tractor and a rustic climbing play facility. Our sports area is perfect for football. For the keen angler, we have three freshwater lakes well stocked with carp, roach and tench. Fabulous, experienced yoga teachers offer weekly classes and workshops in our under floor heated studio.
This tranquil setting is the perfect base from which to explore all that the island has to offer.Whilst we have a beautiful rural setting, we are not far from civilisation. At the bottom of the hill is the village of Whitwell with a public house, petrol station, church and bus stop. Two miles away is the neighbouring village of Niton where there is a large general store and off licence (open late and on Sundays), a Post Office, butcher, public house and a chemist. The sandy beaches of Ventnor are just 3 miles away and the dramatic coastline of Compton and the golden sands of Sandown and Shanklin are all within easy reach.
We think you will love this part of the Isle of Wight as much as we do. The passing of the seasons and the changing landscape make Nettlecombe Farm worth visiting at any time of year and we are happy to offer short breaks for out of season guests visiting between October & May.

The Isle of Wight region
At just 23 miles by 13 miles the diamond-shaped Isle of Wight is England's smallest county, over half of the Island is designated as an Area of Outstanding Beauty.
Separated from the English Mainland by the Solent is has an international reputation for its geographical history. Fossils, including those of dinosaurs can be found on its beaches and it has inspired artists and writers such as Alfred Tennyson and Charles Dickens.
Although it's only a short trip from the busy mainland, the Island feels different. It's got a gentler pace of life, yet offers so much to do. Walking, cycling and playing on the golden beaches will never be out of fashion, and naturally you can expect more sunshine than anywhere else in England. With many opportunities for surfing, para-gliding, wind-surfing and particularly sailing, this is a great holiday destination if you're after an adventure.
Winding down on the Island is always easy. Take some time to explore and enjoy the towns and villages of this historic island - and perhaps sample some of the best food and drink in the country. Watch local fishermen landing the day's catch at Bembridge or Ventnor, then enjoy seafood or fresh fish from the seaside cafes and restaurants. Or spend the day strolling through the meadows and downlands, then relax at one of the many country pubs serving mouth-watering Isle of Wight produce - perhaps Kemphill Farm beef, Island tomatoes, Dunsbury lamb or of course the world-famous Isle of Wight garlic.
The Island is also a place with a rich natural heritage. See fossilised forests and even dinosaur bones on the beaches and cliffs at Compton, or take a stroll in historic Parkhurst Forest to discover the haunts of the elusive red squirrel. Expect some unusual plants and animals as you explore the strange landscape of the Undercliff, and when you find the historic Cripple Path at Niton you can climb ancient steps cut into the inland cliff-face.
Surrounded by the waters of the English Channel, the Isle of Wight has long been a destination that appeals to visitors of all ages. The gentle countryside landscapes and miles of unspoiled coastline that drew the fashionable Victorians across the Solent are still as delightful today - and now more accessible than ever
Nettlecombe Farm is situated in the heart of the rolling South Wight countryside, at the top of a quiet lane around half a mile from the village of Whitwell.
Whilst we have a beautiful rural setting, we are not far from civilisation. At the bottom of the hill is the village of Whitwell with a public house, petrol station, church and bus stop. Two miles away is the neighbouring village of Niton where there is a large general store and off licence (open late and on Sundays), a Post Office, public house and a chemist. The seaside town of Ventnor is approximately three miles away and the island's capital Newport is around twenty minutes drive.
Whitwell is a pretty village steeped in history with some stone and thatch cottages, the population today is around 550. It takes its name from the White Well, a place of pilgrimage during mediaeval times. The well can still be seen down a track opposite the church.
The pub in Whitwell, The White Horse Inn, claims to be the oldest on the Island with some of its walls dating back to the 15th Century. From the end of the nineteenth century until 1952 the IOW central railway ran through Whitwell, which had it's own station situated at Nettlecombe Lane.
The church at Whitwell was built in two parts, the first and oldest part was built by the de Esturs and dedicated to their family patron saint. Later the owners of Stenbury Manor built a small chapel on the south side of the church dedicated to the Virgin Mary. The two buildings were separate until the 16th Century when the dividing wall was knocked down. Today it is a beautiful little church with its old churchyard walls.
Throughout the village at regular intervals handsome iron pillars can be seen, these are old water standards provided in 1887 by William Spindler a prominent figure in St Lawrence. His tomb lies in the Whitwell graveyard.
