Luxury bed and breakfast and retreat accommodation on the Isle of Wight
Looking to retreat, to be nestled deep in nature? Our lovely Isle of Wight escape touches the hearts of all who visit. We have the perfect getaway venue for couples, residential groups, families or individuals looking for a warm welcome in a rural setting and those looking for somewhere special to celebrate an important occasion.
Godshill Park Barn is a sympathetic blend of the traditional and the innovative, a spectacular example of modern rural architecture in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Our working livestock farm is in a hamlet near the picturesque village of Godshill in one of the most beautiful parts of the island. Peace and tranquillity are guaranteed.
We, Kathy and Mark, have been welcoming guests at Godshill Park Farm for over 15 years. During this time we have learned how to create warm, comfortable, relaxing accommodation with good food.
During 2018 we converted a disused barn into additional bespoke luxury accommodation with a dining room opening its doors to the abundant hillside, a massage treatment room and five high quality en suite bedrooms.
The south facing sitting room has comfy sofas, good books and a wood burning stove.
The farm specialises in supporting rare native breeds. Castlemilk moorit and Boreray sheep,
Dexter cattle, horses, miniature ponies, llamas and alpacas graze the fields. Home grown
fleeces are woven into blankets, blinds, throws and cushions to decorate walls and sofas.
Situated at a cross roads of bridleways and footpaths, guests can walk, run or cycle through ancient woodlands or up over the downs for panoramic views of the island, English Channel and Solent.
You are never far from a beach on the Isle of Wight.
The 20 minutes ferry journey across the to the Isle of Wight allows for precious moments of decompression; a wonderful restorative start for your visit. We offer assistance with booking car travel to and from the island.
Wifi is available over the whole site.
The Taverners pub is mentioned in the Michelin good pub guide and together with the Griffin pub, Woods Kitchen and Worsleys restaurant is just a short walk away together with the Model Village, medieval church, quaint shops and tea rooms in the village. We are centrally located being 6 miles south of Newport, 4 miles to the west of Shanklin and 4 miles north of Ventnor.
Fishing in our private lake is exclusively for our guests.

There is a bus stop at the end of the drive where you can catch a bus to Newport or to Shanklin and beyond. The nearest train station is in Shanklin which connects with Ryde pierhead and the ferry to Portsmouth Harbour.
Absence of light pollution gives clear starlit skies.
We regularly host yoga and well-being retreats at the farm during the Autumn and Winter months. For details please click here.
