Where are we?
Atherfield Green Farm Holiday Cottages are situated in the stunning south-west of the Isle of Wight.
Owned by Jenny and Alistair Davidson, there is a choice of four cottages; Rose, Honeysuckle, Lavender and Fuchsia, all of which are accessible for disabled guests.
The cottages were converted in 2001 and are attractively sited around a central, level courtyard. Rose, was the farm’s granary; Honeysuckle, the horse stable; and Lavender and Fuchsia, the milking parlour and dairy. Views from the cottages are spectacular, stretching across miles of unbroken farmland and countryside.
Surrounding Atherfield Green are an intricate network of quiet lanes and footpaths, and the nearby Downland offers fantastic views across the Island. This makes our location excellent for walkers and cyclists. We also accept dogs, for a small additional charge.

Local Amenities and Attractions
The nearest neighbouring village is Chale Green, approximately 2-miles away, providing a village shop with post office, delicatessen and café. A little further afield are the well-equipped villages of Shorwell and Brighstone, both of which are very picturesque with thatched cottages and ancient churches. Both villages offer local pubs, post offices and shops. Newport, the county town of the Island, is approximately fifteen minutes away by car. Because of our rural location, we do recommend you have your own form of transport as we are not on a bus route.
With regard to attractions to visit, we are approximately 2-miles from Blackgang Chine theme park, great for families, and we are ideally placed to access the stunning beaches and chines located all along the south-west coast. The family-friendly Ventnor Botanic Gardens are a fifteen minute drive, which incorporates the fascinating undercliff. Our lack of street lighting makes our skies especially dark, fantastic for star-gazers!
The Island is renowned among palaeontologists. If you want the opportunity to see fossilised dinosaur footprints and hunt for your own fossils, nearby Compton beach is popular as its dramatic landslips often unearth new finds. The West Wight offers opportunities for a wide variety of sports and pastimes such as fishing, mountain biking, paragliding and various forms of surfing and water sports.
