Why a farm stay should be your Isle of Wight accommodation choice

When you’re thinking of different places to stay on the Isle of Wight, it is fair to say that a farm probably isn’t the first option that springs to mind. Often, holidaymakers will think of staying in a beautiful hotel or a private holiday home and whilst there is no denying that these are both brilliant accommodation options, you shouldn’t overlook some of the more unique alternatives available, such as staying on a farm.

If you’re planning a trip to the Isle of Wight this year and you’re still considering the different types of accommodation to book, below we have looked into some of the main reasons why a farm stay is perfect for your upcoming holiday. Whether you’re visiting the Island with your family or you’re coming for a couples getaway, you can trust that a farm is a great location for your holiday accommodation.

Be surrounded by the beautiful countryside

One of the best things about booking accommodation on a farm is that you will be surrounded by farmlands, fields and meadows, and breathtaking panoramic views are always guaranteed. You can take a break from your busy day-to-day life and escape to the countryside where you can relax in the tranquillity of the great outdoors.

No matter where you choose to stay, you will have plenty of space all to yourselves and you won’t have to worry about other holidaymakers spoiling your getaway. Farm stays are a brilliant way to avoid ridiculously busy accommodation during the peak holiday season too.

Enjoy fresh produce and foods

The vast majority of farms provide self-catering accommodation to their guests, but they have farm shops and/or restaurants within walking distance from where you’re staying. So, you can either take your own food with you, or you can purchase the home-grown and locally sourced products that are available on-site.

It isn’t uncommon for discounts to be provided to those who are staying in farm accommodation and you may even be able to pre-arrange for food parcels to be delivered right to your doorstep too. You can guarantee that you will enjoy lots of delicious fresh meals during your farm stay, whether you fancy cooking for yourself or not.

Stay in a quirky glamping tent/pod

When you decide to book a farm stay, you will have the opportunity to sleep in a type of accommodation that you’ve never experienced before. Most farms offer a selection of different glamping safari tents, pods, yurts and/or wood cabins, and some even have more unique options available too. So, you will have lots of choice in this regard.

Glamping is very popular nowadays and it is the best way to be close to nature without compromising on your home comforts. The glamping accommodation that you book will be surprisingly luxurious and it will be fully equipped with everything you need to have an amazing holiday. Some glamping sites even have added extras like hot tubs and swimming pools too.

Have plenty to do on-site

There is often so much to see and do when you choose to stay on a farm and you will be able to fill your days with activities without needing to drive anywhere. Of course, you will be able to enjoy walks and bike rides through the countryside, and you can wander around the farm and look at the animals, but bigger farms offer even more than this.

Lots of the farms on the Island have playgrounds for children, areas for ball games and even things like play barns and mini-golf too. You can guarantee that you will never get bored when you choose a farm for your Isle of Wight accommodation.
