Nettlecombe Farm

Isle of Wight


Nettlecombe Farm 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.


If you enjoy fishing then you should take advantage of our three lakes that

are located a 150 yard stroll down the lane, which is also accessible by

car. These man made but now wholly naturalised lakes cover an area of 1.5

acres and are well-stocked with carp, roach and tench of various sizes. The

largest recorded fish caught from these lakes to date was a 20lb carp caught

by a 12 year old boy.


Yearly, double figures are caught. As well as being a peaceful place to pass

the time and admire the beautiful scenery the lakes offer something to

anglers of all abilities; good sport for the experienced angler and simply a

chance to catch fish for the novice.


Guests staying at Nettlecombe Farm can fish free of charge, and the lakes

are also open to the public for a daily 'per rod' charge. The lakes are open

from dawn to dusk all year round.


Nettlecombe Farm has been in the Morris family for over 100 years. The

farm's meadows are grazed by beef cattle, sheep, ponies and donkeys. In the

Rickyard there is a wide variety of small livestock normally including

chickens, geese, turkeys, pigs, goats and rabbits. In springtime, visiting

children may be lucky enough to help bottle-feed the lambs. And when the

kids need to let off steam there are three large grassed play areas -

including one with toddlers play equipment, which has a stunning large

'Wendy' house and a fabulous wooden tractor and for the older children there

is a sports pitch. There are many glorious walks and cycle routes accessible

from the farm with breathtaking views of a large part of the island.

Excellent coarse fishing is also available on our three lakes.


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 seaside town of Ventnor is approximately three miles away and the

island's capital Newport is around twenty minutes drive. 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.
