Bank End Farm is a family business run by Robert Noyes , Penny Noyes & Clare Watson, grandchildren of the poet Alfred Noyes who bought & retired to the Isle of Wight & who lived at Lisle Combe which is at the centre of the farm in the 1920's. The farm began life as a dairy farm and then diversified into a Rare Breeds Farm open to the public from 1990 to 2001. As a result of foot & Mouth we decided to close to the public as a tourist attraction and because of the unique setting of the farm and stunning sea views from the farm we began converting the farm buildings into self catering accommodation. Fistly we converted the farms shop and café into 2 self catering bungalows, each sleeping 6 and then moved on to convert the older stone farm buildings into 3 self catering barn conversions Beachcombers, Lobster Pot & Fishermans Cottage sleeping 2- 8 people. Robert & Penny still live on the farm and are on hand to welcome visitors & be at hand should visitors need them during their stay.
Bank End Farm is nestled into the south coast and is a wonderful location to relax and unwind and watch the ever changing view the holiday cottages offer across the fields and out to sea.
All our cottages and barn conversions are within 5-10 minutes walking distance for families to the coastal footpath and a number of small safe secluded beaches. Guests can walk from the barns straight out onto the adjacent public footpath that leads to the Ventnor Botancial Gardens which is a wonderful place for families to spend the day. A perfect location for picnics and play and playing on the beaches and in the rock pools.
