Manor

Redway Farm Location

Redway Manor Farm Bed and Breakfast

This beautiful manor house is nestled in wonderful countryside on a delightful farm on the East side of the Island within a 15 minute drive of the sandy beaches of Sandown, Shanklin and Ventnor. There are wonderful open views from the manor house and garden across fields towards the downs. It stands at the end of a country lane with no passing traffic.

This is a wonderful walking area with footpaths leading along the course of the River Yar and to the nearby picturesque village of Godshill. Visitors are free to stroll across the fields of the farm and around the lovely lake in the grounds of the Manor House. There is an open grassland area near the lakes with open views. There is also a lovely nature trail on the farm so that visitors can enjoy the wonderful range of wild life – this includes herons, ducks and geese on the lakes; swallows and kestrels often nest in the barns; pheasants, foxes and badgers plus rabbits which abound. A small herd of cows is kept on the farm and there is a delightful area, only a short walk away, with small rare-breed bagot goats that will eat from the hand and rescued hens which are now free-range.

From the manor house there is direct access across the fields to the cycle track which links Sandown to Newport and Cowes. Arrangements can be made for the storage of bikes and advice is available concerning recommendations for the best places to eat and the various nearby attractions. These include Osborne House, the Island home of Queen Victoria;  the medieval castle of Carisbrooke where Charles II was imprisoned, the Garlic Farm,  various vineyards, the Roman Villa, Amazon Adventure Park and Robin Hill.

The Isle of Wight

Known for a open countryside and long sandy beaches the Isle of Wight has become a popular place to enjoy and holiday in England. The unspoilt countryside has been popular with walkers for many years and it is now possible to walk the coastal path and enjoy one of the most spectacular coast lines in Britain.

The sandy beaches on the East of the Isle of Wight are popular with holiday makers who enjoy the swimming and sun bathing. Ventnor and Bonchurch are less popular alternatives and are located to the South of Shanklin.
