What people are saying...

"We stayed overnight in one of the yurts, which was amazing. Great farm, great food and very friendly people. Would recommend taking the time to walk around the farm, as it is quite beautiful. The garlic ice cream was also a delight." Christopher Billings

"Stunning location, quaint cottage, amazing holiday" Samm G

"We stayed in the Yurt at Mersley Farm which is right next to The Garlic Farm. Such an idyllic place to stay, seeing the peacocks, pheasants, rabbits and squirrels around the site. The Yurt has everything you need. Run by a friendly family. Will definitely return." Helen S

"All told it was a place to dream dreams, and I was sorry when it came to the time to wake up and go home !" Atoner

"Blown away by how amazing this place is: My family and I have just returned from staying in The Barn Cottage at The Garlic Farm, we were blown away with how beautiful the cottage and surroundings were." Jo S

The Farm and its Location

Mersley Farm (AKA The Garlic Farm) is a working farm growing garlic with a small herd of highland cattle, goats, sheep, horses and chickens in the surrounding fields. The Garlic Farm Shop located in the old farm yard sells all our unique garlic products, plus a range of products from Island artisans. Our renowned restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch every day with meals prepared by the experienced Island chef, Phil Hopkins.

The farm lies at the hub of the 147 miles of bridle, cycling and footpaths for which the Isle of Wight is famous. This makes it the ideal location to explore the Island on foot or bicycle. From the passenger ferries in Ryde and Cowes you can reach the farm by bicycle using one of the fantastic cycle routes which utilise the old railway lines. 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.

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 a 10 minute drive or 25 minute cycle 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 its prominent and interesting 11th Century Church and 18th Century Pub (The Pointer Inn), which serves good food in a traditional pub setting. Shopping areas are not far away as we are 4 miles from the main Island towns of Newport and Ryde.

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 also have a games room with pool table, table tennis, table football and air hockey. 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 the peacocks and black pigeons. 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.
