Island Fish Farm & Meadow Lakes

REF NR: 2842

Island Fish Farm is located in an area of the Island which is the least populated and developed, ideal for people wishing to escape the noise and commotion of so many places these days. We have no street lights, single track lanes and a slower pace of life, accordingly amenities are limited but that is the beauty of the Back of the Wight.

We wish to attract guests looking for an environment in which they can relax, enjoy and appreciate the unspoilt countryside we live in.

We do not want to disappoint those expecting the normal facilities and amenities found in most towns these days, and would recommend Newport or the Eastern side of the Island to those visitors.
 
We are 1 mile from the nearest pub and 1.5 miles from both Brighstone and Shorwell, each of these villages has a pub, village shop and post office.
 
We offer B&B Accommodation in part of the house with private access; this comprises of the main room with outside door, en-suite shower room, 2 single beds, settee, TV, DVD and tea and coffee making facilities. There is an adjoining room with a double bed which makes it an ideal unit for families or friends sharing the facilities.
 
We also have a 2 bedroom mobile home for self catering holidays. This will provide a double and 2 small single beds, bath / shower room, kitchen and lounge dining area. The mobile is sited overlooking our main trout lake, with fields behind and a small private patio area. We feel confident you will enjoy staying in this peaceful environment.
 
Our Farm Shop is open 09:00 to 18:00 April to October except on Saturdays when it is closed but with the Lakes open for Season Ticket holders only.
 
We can supply rods, nets, rests, tackle and chairs for hire, Environment Agency Fishing Licences, bait and small tackle for sale, catering for both trout and coarse fishing.
 
Refreshments are available including hot and cold drinks, snacks with sandwiches and bacon baguettes made to order. We have an outside covered area with picnic benches and toilet facilities are provided.
 
Fresh trout are available to order or can be prepared for you while you wait. We only sell really fresh fish which are alive until you require them.
 
We also operate our own hot smoking kiln and can offer whole or filleted smoked trout and produce our own recipe smoked trout pate. These are produced for sale at our local Farmers' Market on Fridays in Newport, please phone to check availability for these products if you wish to collect from our shop.
 
The Island Fish Farm has its own car parking area beside the lane. Anglers please leave your cars in this car park and walk up the gravel drive to the shop. For guests staying with us please drive up to the house. Please note no dogs are allowed.
 
We are ideally located for walkers and cyclists wishing to explore the beautiful unspoilt countryside. The local beach is renowned for fossil collecting and walking along it to the west will bring you to the site of Dinosaur footprints and casts before reaching Compton Bay, a favourite for surfing and those looking for a natural, non commercial sandy beach.
 
From the farm we have views of the Freshwater Bay chalk cliffs to the west and the Downs to the north over which the famous Tennyson Trail can be walked or cycled, from which the spectacular views of the coast can be enjoyed.
 
 
Next to the Fish Farm we have 3.5 acres of private woodland and ponds in which limited access can be made available to our guests. This is a haven for wildlife and an ideal spot for bird watching. Our favourites are the Kingfishers, Woodpeckers and Buzzards which are regularly seen along with our numerous water birds.
