The Farm and it's Location

Mersley Farm (AKA The Garlic Farm) is a working farm growing garlic and asparagus. The Garlic Farm Shop located in the farm yard sells all our unique garlic products, plus a range of Island products. We also have a restaurant open for lunch every day serving a selection of delicious freshly prepared meals by the experienced Island chef, Charlie Bartlett. The restaurant has already received much acclaim for the quality of its meals. We also serve delicious breakfasts from 8-9.30am.

A ridge of chalk downs extends across the centre of the Isle of Wight from east to west. Drive over the top of Mersley Down as you approach the village of Newchurch and you will see Mersley Farm nestling in its sheltered position 300 ft below. Surrounded by unspoilt scenery and ½ a mile from a main road, it is the perfect setting for a relaxing holiday, yet the nearest beach is no more than 10 minutes drive away.

Mersley looks over the valley of Newchurch, and the rolling Island countryside towards Godshill and the south of the Island. The Farm is one mile north of the village of Newchurch with it's prominent and interesting 11th Century Church and 18th Century Pub (The Pointer Inn), now serving excellent meals. Shopping areas are not far away as we are 4 miles from the main Island towns of Newport and Ryde.

The farm lies at the hub of the 147 miles of bridle, cycling and footpaths for which the Island is famous. A ten minute walk from the farm onto the Downs will reward you with some of the most exhilarating views of the Island, over the Solent to England and far across the Channel. Other sports available locally are fishing, sailing, cycling, windsurfing, surfing and riding. We are happy to provide advice and information, and help arrange any of these activities on request.

Around the farm there are plenty of open spaces ideal for children to play including a football pitch with goals and a hard tennis court available to our visitors on request. We would like to introduce you to our farm pets. We have a number of clucking hens who are always keen for feeding and sometimes lay us a few eggs. It is likely you will be given a warm welcome from Arthur the peacock and Billy the guinea fowl- a rather confused couple- the peahens don't get a look in! There are also our resident highland cattle who you'll usually find in the field opposite the farm minding their own business in a 'don't-mess-with-us-and-we-won't mess-with-you' kind of way.

We are proud members of Wight Farm Holidays. A group of accommodation providers on the Isle of Wight offering truly unique and quality holiday properties across the Isle of Wight. Many are working farms offering bed and breakfast and self catering cottages. Visit their website to browse some of the beautiful properties available www.wightfarmholidays.co.uk
