Welcome to Farringford

Providing self catering accommodation at its most luxurious, Farringford is the Isle of Wight's leading self catering holiday destination. Our beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable 4 star cottages are arranged in three small groups around this rural and uniquely historic 100 acre estate. We have our own family friendly restaurant; renowned for its delicious freshly prepared wood fired oven pizzas, tempting seasonal menu and traditional Sunday lunch.

Guests enjoy unlimited use of our nine hole golf course. Our swimming pool and recently resurfaced tennis court are also very popular, while our children's play area and paddling pool provide hours of fun for the little ones. Farringford directly adjoins some of the most remarkably unspoilt coastline and beaches in Southern Britain, and yet travel time from Central London is just under 2.5 hours.
