About the neighbourhood
Afton is a small hamlet on the outskirts of Freshwater - itself officially a village. The West Wight is a beautiful, rural landscape famous as being the favourite haunt of Tennyson the poet, sailing at Yarmouth and of course the Needles at Alum Bay. Relax in a converted barn from where you can enjoy long and dramatic walks, cycling, sailing, adventure activities as well as trips to numerous attractions, beaches and historic sites. We are situated almost directly on the key bridleways and walking routes that are used for the walking festivals. Afton Farmhouse was the location for the original Isle of Wight festivals of the 1960s/70s. Nearby Compton Bay is the favourite beach for locals and has the best surf for body boarding or surfing.
