Availability & Pricing
The village of Porchfield is situated between the towns of Cowes, world famous for its prestigious sailing events, and the historic harbour town of Yarmouth, where Yarmouth Castle can be found.
From Locks Farm in Porchfield you can walk to the only National Trust Nature Reserve on the Isle of Wight. Newtown National Nature Reserve is an idyllic retreat that has something to offer everyone from boat owners, walkers, wildlife enthusiasts and historians to those in search of peace and tranquillity. You can wander past flower-rich hay meadows, through ancient woodlands with rare butterflies and red squirrels, and look out over salt marsh and the clear waters of the harbour, bobbing with sailing boats in the summer and alive with birds in the spring and winter. Locks Farm could not be better placed to enjoy the best of the island. You have a choice of three arrival ports, none of which are more than half an hour’s drive away from the farm. Cowes and its world-famous August regatta is just five miles away.
Cowes is the northern-most town on the Isle of Wight and has the unique feature of being split into two by the mouth of the River Medina. Both sides of the town are steeped in maritime heritage, with large marinas making them very popular for sailing all year round, and the world’s largest sailing regatta “Cowes Week” takes place here every summer.
The island has something for everyone at different times of the year. Why not make your arrival on the island truly unique with a ride on the country’s last remaining Hovercraft. Otherwise take advantage of discounted travel packages available through our partnership with Wight link.
If you are coming to the island to enjoy walking or cycling it is also worth checking out the Island’s dedicated cycleways - many following the course of disused railway lines, signed routes, miles of bridleways and quiet country lanes.
The Isle of Wight is also a walker’s paradise, filled with over 500 miles of footpaths across contrasting landscapes and beaches, making it the ideal place for a walking holiday or break.
With a great range of walking routes it is possible to access almost every nook and cranny of the Island on foot, including many of the interesting towns and villages.
The Isle of Wight’s varied countryside offers fields, forests and woodland, providing the perfect complement to our 64 miles of coastal paths which cover rocky coves, estuaries, and dramatic cliff tops.
The Isle of Wight is famed for its beaches, and what a variety it has to offer! From the sandy beaches of Sandown with it’s gently-sloping sandy beach or why not visit Steephill Cove this pretty little cove has no direct car access and remains an unspoilt idyll. The beach is served by a cafe and seafood restaurant and is only a five minute walk from nearby Ventnor Beach. Ventnor Beach is a pretty Victoria seaside resort built into the steep slopes and cliffs of St Boniface Down, the highest point on the Isle of Wight.
