Location: Kingate Farm nestles between the beautiful villages of Whitwell and Niton, on the southern point of the Isle of Wight. We have many sandy beaches nearby, along the Isle of Wight Coastal Path and many stunning panoramic views across the island and further South Coast. Ventnor Botanical Gardens and Steep Hill Cove are to the East, St Catherine’s Lighthouse and Freshwater Bay to the West, with picturesque Godshill and it’s charming Model Village just inland.
History: Kingates Farmhouse is Grade II Listed and was initially thought to be a small Toll House, with a more substantial dwelling built about 1680. What we now see was extensively extended (doubled in size) circa 1897, when island wide railway lines were extensive. There have been many additions to the main house, including the floor to ceiling bay windows to the now rear of the property. The present Farm Office was an existing dairy but the Farm Cottage was the original milking parlour and Kingates Farm was once a lucrative farm of some 50 acres, breeding cattle, quality blood line horses (hence The Stables) and numerous poultry breeds.
Making Memories: Enjoy an abundance of wildlife in our surrounding gardens. Take time out, swim and splash with the family in the pool and relax together around the fire pit or hide in the wildflower meadow! Walk acres of lush green paddocks to pick orchard and hedgerow fruit. Enjoy a picnic and take photo opportunities in our beautiful surroundings. Children of all ages can feed the chickens and collect fresh eggs!
