A little further afield are the villages of Shorwell and Brighstone, both of which are very picturesque with pretty thatched cottages and ancient churches.
Atherfield Green Farm is ideally placed to access the stunning beaches and chines located all along the island’s beautiful south-west coast. One of its best kept secrets is Compton beach which offers a 2 mile stretch of contrasting dark and golden sands and a stunning backdrop of multi-coloured sandstone cliffs. It’s also a great place to go fossil hunting, you can even book tours on the beach to see the dinosaur footprints in the sandstone ledge at Hanover Point that are exposed at low tide.
