|Nettlecombe Farm is situated 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.
We are a working farm with modern self-catering holiday apartments set around the farm yard.
It has been in our family for over 100 years. These days we run a mixed farm - both arable and pasture. Crops are normally wheat, barley and linseed and the meadows are grazed by beef cattle and sheep along with Tufty and Basil the Shetland ponies and the donkeys - Nimbus, Dylan, Molly & Nelly.
In the Rickyard there is a wide variety of poultry and other animals, and children visiting in springtime may be lucky enough to help bottle-feed the orphan lambs or calves. They can also enjoy the large collection of rabbits. When the kids (and big kids!) need to let off steam there are two large grassed play areas.
We have some glorious walks around the farm with breathtaking views of a large part of the island, and excellent coarse fishing available on our three lakes.
