DescriptionA ridge of chalk downs extends across the centre of the Isle of Wight from east to west. Drive over the top of Mersley Down as you approach the village of Newchurch and you will see Mersley Farm nestling in its sheltered position 300 ft. below. Surrounded by unspoilt scenery and half a mile from a main road, it is the perfect setting for a relaxing holiday, yet the nearest beach is no more than 10 minutes drive, with a choice of some of the best Island resorts. Bembridge, Seaview, Shanklin and Sandown are all within 15 minutes comfortable drive of the farm, with the West Wight surfing beaches only 20 - 25 minutes away.
Mersley looks over the valley of Newchurch, and the rolling Island countryside towards Godshill and the south of the Island. The Farm is one mile north of the village of Newchurch with it's prominent and interesting 11th Century Church and 18th Century Pub (The Pointer Inn), now serving excellent meals. Newchurch also benefits from a shop, post office and garage. We are four miles from the main Island towns of Newport and Ryde.
Mersley Farm consists of an attractive Island farmhouse and barns around the farmyard, all built from local stone. Some of these have been sensitively converted for holiday accommodation. In one of the barns, the renowned Island potter, Molly Attrill, has her workshop. The farm shop sells locally grown produce and in season, our specialities - Isle of Wight garlic, sweetcorn and asparagus.
The farm lies at the hub of the 147 miles of bridle, cycling and footpaths that the Island is famous for. A ten minute walk from the farm onto the Downs will reward you with some of the most exhilarating views of the Island, over the Solent to England and far across the Channel.
Free wi-fi broadband internet access is available in all cottages and a hard tennis court is available to our visitors on request.
Other sports available locally are fishing, sailing, windsurfing, surfing and riding. We are happy to provide advice and information, and help arrange any of these activities on request.
