Ford Farm House Bed & Breakfast
Ford Farm House offers quiet, relaxed, Bed and Breakfast accommodation in the peaceful, rural location of Whitwell on the Isle of Wight. From our guest room you will see beautiful, far-reaching views across the gardens towards the village of Whitwell and the downs, whilst enjoying the generous continental breakfast that we provide in your room. During your stay your room will be serviced daily, and food and drinks replenished as required. There is a lovely king-size bed for two guests, and a large cupboard where your breakfast requirements are stored out of sight. Here, we provide a microwave oven, a toaster, a kettle and a small refrigerator to keep products chilled. Also, there is a large wardrobe with drawers at the base, a marble-top dressing table with mirror, as well as a table and chairs looking out across the countryside where you can take your breakfast at whatever time suits you. We like you to be comfortable, so you have two arm-chairs where you can sit, unwind and reflect on your busy day exploring the beautiful Isle of Wight. Your private bathroom, with a bath and shower over, overlooks more countryside.
Here at Ford Farm House, we are excellently situated for walkers and cyclists who want to enjoy the picturesque countryside of the Isle of Wight, whilst the many visitor attractions and wonderful sandy beaches are also within easy reach. On the outskirts of the village, we’re within a five minute drive of the nearest local pub which is great for a meal at the end of the day. Niton is also a small village but is packed with all the essentials. You will find an excellent general store, public house, pharmacy and a beautiful church. In the other direction there is the famous thatched village of Godshill which lies about two miles north, and which also has two public houses, serving meals, and a restaurant. If you're an active person visiting the island who wants to do some exciting activities, there are fishing lakes in Whitwell and golf courses in Ventnor and Sandown. Other nearby places to visit include Ventnor Botanic Garden, St Catherine’s Lighthouse, with Carisbrooke Castle and Osborne House about 30 minutes away.

You may have read that we are in an excellent location if you are planning to visit relatives and friends in Whitwell, Niton, Godshill or Chale, as we are within only a few minutes’ drive from these villages. Unfortunately, there is not a frequent bus service in Whitwell, and the nearest bus stop is over a mile away. There are currently no bus routes running past Ford Farm House so we do recommend that you bring your own transport when coming to stay with us.
Upon arrival at Ford Farm House, you will be greeted by Robin or Shirley, the owners, who will welcome you into this peaceful retreat. They will give you a run-down on what we offer, give you a little guided tour and answer any questions you may.
If you are new to visiting the Isle of Wight, the island is home to some of the most diverse walking and cycling routes in England! We are in a perfect location for you to explore this fact for yourself taking in the picturesque views, stunning scenery and iconic landmarks. There is a dedicated bridleway which runs directly in front of our house where you can walk and cycle to different areas all over this island. If you are more intrested in developing that tan, then there are many local beaches within a 15 minute drive from us.
Ford Farm is no longer a working farm but, as much as possible, we do obtain Isle of Wight products from local farm and village shops, and our fresh eggs come from a neighbour just down the lane who keeps hens.
Why have sea views when you can have countryside views?
