The Isle of Wight region

The Isle of Wight has long been a popular tourist destination, indeed it is famous for being Queen Victoria's favourite escape from London. Visitors can still enjoy Osborne house as well as Carisbrooke Castle and other historic attractions. Most visitors enjoy a trip to the many beaches around the Island, small coves, long sandy beaches - something for everyone. The idyllic thatched villages and rural nature of the Island make you feel that a trip to the Island is like stepping back in time. To keep the family entertained there are numerous attractions on the Isle of Wight, theme parks, Zoos, a steam railway amongst others. Things to do can be booked at a discount via The ferry journey across the Solent makes the perfect start to a holiday, young children find it particularly exciting. The Isle of Wight is working to become an EcoIsland by encouraging sustainable initiatives. You will definitely enjoy your visit.


Afton is a small hamlet on the outskirts of Freshwater - itself officially a village. The West Wight is a beautiful, rural landscape famous as being the favourite haunt of Tennyson the poet, sailing at Yarmouth and of course the Needles at Alum Bay. Relax in a converted barn from where you can enjoy long and dramatic walks, cycling, sailing, adventure activities as well as trips to numerous attractions, beaches and historic sites. We are situated almost directly on the key bridleways and walking routes that are used for the walking festivals. Afton Farmhouse was the location for the original Isle of Wight festivals of the 1960s/70s. Nearby Compton Bay is the favourite beach for locals and has the best surf for body boarding or surfing.
