Find us

Ford Farm House is located at the top of a quiet lane called Ford Farm Lane, off the Niton/Newport road. Situated in a remote area in Whitwell on the Isle of Wight, we are within a few minutes’ drive from most of the island’s attractions and famous landmarks. We are also excellently situated for walkers and cyclists who want to enjoy the picturesque countryside of the Isle of Wight, whilst the many visitor attractions and wonderful sandy beaches are also within easy reach. On the outskirts of the village of Whitwell, the cottage is perfect if you are visiting relatives or friends in Whitwell, Niton, Godshill or Chale, as we are within only a few minutes’ drive from these villages. It’s also only around 5 minutes to drive to the nearest local pub in the heart of the small village of Whitwell.

Sat Nav Information

Please note: the entrance to Ford Farm Lane is rather concealed and signposted poorly. Once you enter the lane, your SatNav will most definitely say that you have reached your destination, when in fact you have not! You can see where we live and get an idea of where the lane is by looking at the map above.

Continue for another 250 yards up the lane; you will see an entrance to the left to a red brick house which is signposted outside with ‘Ford Farm House’. You need to turn left into our driveway and continue to the rear of the House. It is easier if you turn around in the large turning area and once you have completed your turn, please continue as though you are leaving again, pass the white conservatory and your designated parking place is at the side of the house. Please park here and we will greet you if we have not done so already. We hope that you have a pleasant crossing on the ferry and a relaxed drive to Ford Farm House. The entrance for the Bed & Breakfast is via the front door.

There are plenty of parking spaces located at Ford Farm should you wish to bring two vehicles or have relatives or friends staying/living on the Isle of Wight who may like to visit you.

For further instructions please get in contact by call 01983 840048 or drop us an email.
