Skinners farm self catering farm holiday caravans are found at the end of a 400 metre lane. Skinners is one mile from Parkhurst Forest, just over a mile from the secluded Thorness Bay, and three miles from both Cowes and Newport.

We have three caravans which are located in a field adjoining the farm. They enjoy views across our fields. Depending on the time of year there will be cattle or crops in the fields. Staying at Skinners Farm, you will experience a real working farm and be able to witness the varied work that goes on at any time of year. We also offer fitness breaks under the guidance of our fitness instructor. Book a programme to meet your needs and help you achieve your fitness goals.More
