Each airstream has a fridge, cooker, toaster, well-equipped kitchen, shower/bath (there's a shower in the airstream and a separate shower and toilets in the adjacent farmhouse), linen and towels, radio, CD player, hairdryer, Fuzzy Felt, Tiddlywinks and a picnic bench, sun loungers and BBQ outside. Shop-in-a-shed – bits of vintage, handmade tea-cosies and the like. Breakfast packs and speciality bakes available to order in advance and free-range eggs available on the farm. Badminton net, bats, balls and games available to borrow. Check individual units for more specific details on each Airstream.

Suitable For

Glamping only – though there is 1 extra space for bring-your-own classic campervans and vintage caravans. No dogs allowed.


Treat yourself to a scenic chug through the countryside on the Isle of Wight Steam Railway (01983 882204). The nearest station, at Smallbrook Junction, is a 15 minute walk away. It's a tiny bit further to Rosemary Vineyard (01983 811084), one of the largest producers of English Wine – covering 30 acres just south of Ryde. Free guided winery tours are offerred every Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday (11am, 12pm, 1pm) and last around 30 minutes. They take you through the winemaking process and the equipment used, followed by a tasting of their wines, juices, liqueurs and ciders

Food & Drink

Order up a special breakfast ‘hamper’ packed with local goodies (ok, it arrives in a brown paper bag) from the Wight Hamper Company (01983 875535). There are many pub and restaurant options in nearby Newport but for a great view across the island and out to the Solent, head to the beer garden at The Blacksmiths Arms (01983 529263) in Calbourne on the main Newport to Freshwater road. Good Sunday lunches plus guest ales.


From £100 for 2-night mid-week break, from £160 per trailer for a weekend and up to £680 for a week in high season.
