Godshill, Isle of Wight | Map

Escape from the city for a long weekend in an oasis of peace and tranquility,  on a beautiful island said to be the sunniest place in the UK,   super accessible, just a short ferry ride from Portsmouth.

I was there in May to investigate…and WOW…the Isle of Wight is a hidden gem. Beautiful sandy beaches, rugged cliffs, lush green fields and woodlands. A castle, a never-ending coastal path and fish and chips!

In Victorian times the Isle of Wight was home to many well-known characters including Alfred Lord Tennyson, Charles Dickens, Charles Darwin and Queen Victoria. Other famous faces who’ve graced the isle include Winston Churchill and Karl Marx.

Godshill Park Farm is situated in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in a hamlet on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Godshill, renowned for its pretty thatched cottages, 14th century church and tea gardens.

The Farmhouse, cottages and barn are nestled amidst a network of footpaths and bridleways which lead onto the Downs and coastal walks. A long driveway leads to the house from the road ensuring peace and tranquility and starry night skies.
