Welcome to Farringford and the Isle of Wight

Providing self catering accommodation in a peaceful and historic setting, Farringford is the leading Isle of Wight self catering holiday destination. Our 10 beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable 4 star cottages are set within a uniquely historic 100 acre estate of open parkland and secluded gardens. 

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.

Tearoom Open

Our licensed tearoom is now open serving cream teas, sandwiches, light snacks and pizzas.  Open Monday-Saturday 11-4pm.
