Where is Grange Farm?
Grange Farm Campsite and Cottages is on a beautiful coastal site on the Isle of Wight. The surrounding area is aSite of Special Scientific Interest. There is little commercialization so, you can enjoy unpolluted sea air and great countryside views.
Look far out to sea to the south, or back to the undulating chalk downs. Explore the area via the many footpaths or just stay and let the Children to run around and play. Easy access to the beach means you can relax, sit back and enjoy a dip in the ocean or a picnic on the sand. We also have a small working farm with animals including alpacas, pigs, goats and chickens. The lack of light pollution also makes the campsite perfect for star gazing when the sun goes down.
The countryside surrounding the campsite is ideal for those who love the outdoors. Quiet roads and tracks are ideal for cyclists. There are plenty of coastal or inland paths for walkers so you never get bored. Water-lovers can kyak, kite surf or simply swim in the sea. The more adventurous could try their hand at paragliding. There really is something for everyone and we think you will enjoy it as much as we do!
The Isle of Wight has been recognised as a UNESCO biosphere reserve making it truly special.
The seaside towns of Yarmouth and Cowes provide the perfect opportunity for a gentle meander and a cup of tea.
