Nettlecombe Farm Cottages – Isle of Wight Farm Cottages
Nettlecombe Farm Cottages are a collection of traditional Isle of Wight farm buildings that have been converted to provide comfortable and modern places to stay. Nestled in the heart of the rolling Isle of Wight countryside, it is a working farm that offers luxurious self-catering holiday accommodation, coarse fishing, yoga retreats and function barn hire.
Surrounded by green fields and lakes, the luxurious self-catering holiday accommodation is not only safe and comfortable for visitors of all ages and abilities, it’s also the perfect base to explore the farm with its friendly animals – or the Islands wider countryside and scenic coastline. We have created a wonderful walking routes map to help make the most of the local area and walking trails.
Residents of Nettlecombe Farm are welcome to explore the farm and meet the animals on our wonderful feeding tours 6 mornings per week, and there’s plenty of fun to be had at any time of the year. In the Rickyard there is a wide variety of livestock to make friends with – usually chickens, sheep, goats, geese, rabbits and even our reindeer. In springtime orphan lambs sometimes need feeding with milk, which can be messy but is always popular! When the kids need to let off steam there is a range of grassed play areas, toddlers play equipment, a big Wendy house, our fabulous wooden tractor and a rustic climbing play facility. For the older children there is a sports area ideal for all sorts of games and football and for quieter days, we have a treasure hunt on the farm and Nettlecombe Farm colouring pages designed by a local artist. The three fully-stocked fishing lakes and of course the farm and nearby countryside is full of places to explore, walk and cycle, and Nettlecombe is a dog-friendly farm too. You might be tempted to enjoy some relaxing yoga at one of the sessions in the modern function barn or book in a massage to pamper yourself with our Massage therapist, Danielle.

The beautiful rural setting is quiet and secluded, but it’s easy to use the farm as a base to explore the beautiful island that is our home. Explore Queen Victoria’s country retreat at Osborne House, see where King Charles I was imprisoned at Carisbrooke Castle, or just marvel at the spectacular Needles. Beaches are especially easy to reach from Nettlecombe Farm, from the dramatic shoreline at Compton to the miles of golden sands and seaside amusements at Sandown and Shanklin.
