Grange Farm Brighstone Bay

REF NR: 860

Welcome to Grange Farm, Brighstone Bay, Isle of Wight. Grange Farm is one of the few unspoilt, non-commercialised coastal sites with unpolluted sea air, situated on the beautiful south west coast, with easy access to our sandy beach and picturesque views of our Chine and Brighstone Forest. Grange Farm has belonged to many people but the estate has gradually reduced in size due to acres being sold off separately and land has been lost to the sea. A lifeboat station was built at Grange Chine in 1860. The first lifeboat stationed here was called the Rescue. The lifeboat station closed in 1915 due to improved technologies.

Our guests can choose from 4 barn conversions cottages, static caravans and campsite surrounded by fields and picturesque views of our beach and the Brighstone Downs and forest. The whole area is ideal for cycling, fishing, fossil hunting - a walkers paradise. We are a small, family run working farm, having many unusual, friendly animals including: llamas, kune-kune pigs, goats, pony, horse, water buffalos, donkey, poultry etc.

11 Static Caravans are set on a plateau where the Brighstone Life Boat Station was situated many years ago with wooden walkways running alongside. All of the Caravans have good views of the Sea and Chine, with very easy access to our sandy beach. The doors of each static caravan open out on to its own, decked veranda, mounted by steps or a slope. For the parents peace of mind there is a fence in front of the caravans because of the cliff edge. All statics have a lounge with double bed, gas fire and satellite TV. The fully fitted kitchens are equipped with gas cooker 4 rings, main oven and grill, microwave, fridge, crockery and cutlery. Gas, electricity and VAT are all included in the price.



The camping and caravan site lies in an area which has been designated "an area of outstanding beauty" as is much of Brighstone Downs. Brighstone Bay is just a short walk 100 yards down the coastal path. The beach changes from time of year, but there is always sand even after some of the worst storms. Many like to build castles or create sculptures on the beach, whilst others just like to dig for its own sake! The Isle of Wight is world-renowned for its dinosaurs fossil hunters come looking for bones and other relics.

We welcome tents, motor caravans and touring vans in our campsite and we are able to offer some pitches with electric hook-up. All of the pitches are on grass on our level and well-drained site overlooking the sea, where cars are parked alongside their owner’s tents and caravans. With a good understanding of our clients needs the main facilities block is centrally heated, fully equipped even with a coin-operated bath and, of course is free for use by Grange Farm guests. Our little guests will be never bored on the kids’ playground. Boat, trains, hay-cart, slide, see-saw, rope-bridge, stepping stones, 4 swings, flat tyre swing, small area for football, cricket etc. are all theirs to play with. Guests who want to explore the area nowhere is too far on the Island. Grange Farm is situated on the South West coast of the Isle of Wight, approximately 7 miles from Freshwater about 10 minutes drive to the west, 10 miles from Ventnor to the east, 8 miles away -15 minutes drive is the main town of Newport.  The picturesque village of Brighstone lies half a mile to the north and hosts an excellent pub named The Three Bishops and an outstanding church which dates back to 1190. Use Island Eye to look around the area and find what is on Isle of Wight.

Although we stock shop a good deal of canned and packeted food in our site shop, you may need to take a trip to Brighstone village to stock up on fresh fruit and vegetables.

For those who doesn’t want to campsite or do caravanning we offer 4 farm buildings that have been converted into self-catering holiday cottages. The Haybarn, Stables and Dairy have been converted from stone barns, and overlook the farmyard with views of Brighstone downs, Grange Chine and the Sea. The Cabin has been converted from a stone and rustic wooden barn, and overlooks the sea and children’s play area. Each one has something of a rustic character, with part of the original internal structure on display. All Self-catering Cottages are centrally heated and have a fully equipped kitchen/dining room. We are open from 1 March until 1 November.

Whilst we do allow certain types or breeds of well-behaved dogs in three of our static caravans and in the Cabin, we are biased towards the smaller, short-haired breeds and normally have an upper limit of 2 dogs. On-site they must be kept on a lead at all times. Dogs are permitted on the beach here but not necessarily on all other beaches on the Island. Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate dogs during the school summer holidays.
