By Car  

We give you 10% discount if you leave your car at home or travel by electric car, but if you are arriving by car please check the exact location on the map above or on Google Maps as sat-navs often send you the wrong way. Manor Bottom Barn is the very last house at the end of the lane with five rectangular skylights along the roof. The Granary is the smaller building on the left, across the track from the barn.

You can park two cars in front of the solid wooden doors on the right hand side of the stable block - you will see an slate sign there indicating the parking spot. The two tracks beside the barn are occasionally used by farm vehicles, especially in spring when the Highland cattle are calving, so please leave them completely clear when you park your car.


You can cross from Portsmouth, Southampton, or Lymington. The former is probably the easiest as the drive from Fishbourne to The Granary is quickest (though no journeys take long on the Island). You can book ferries using the links below link embedded below:

From Portsmouth to Fishbourne or Lymington to Yarmouth

From Southampton to Cowes

By Train

Shanklin is the nearest station. You can buy a ticket to Shanklin from any mainland station and this will include the crossing on the Wightlink catamaran which you board from Portsmouth Harbour station. From London the journey can take between 2 1/2 to 3 hours depending on connections. You can get a bus from Shanklin station to the stop at the end of Manor Road or we can arrange a taxi for you from Shanklin or collect you ourselves if possible.

By Air

You cannot fly to the Island (unless you have your own plane which you can land at Sandown airport!) but train travel from Gatwick, Heathrow, Southampton or Bournemouth airports is easy. Train links are also good from airports further afield.


If you would like to leave your car at home, we will provide details of bus and train times, taxis, and local bicycle hire, including electric bikes.

Secure bike storage is available.

Guests are given details of walks from the house.

There are lots of books on local walks and bike rides, as well as a large map on the wall and a copy of the Country Code.
