Home of the Last Great Event
East Afton Farm and Farmhouse are the centrepiece to one of the Isle of Wight’s most famous historical events. The farm played host to the iconic 1970 Isle of Wight Festival, which was famed for welcoming 600,000 people (6 times the Island population) and massive names such as: Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Lighthouse, The Moody Blues, The Who, Miles Davis and Joan Baez (who is rumoured to have used the facilities at the Farmhouse!)
These days East Afton is a much more peaceful place, but still makes a great venue for a big party!
Located just outside the town of Yarmouth, and village of Freshwater, on the west of the Isle of Wight, East Afton Farmhouse is perfectly placed for group holidays, and exploring the wider Island. Only a few minutes-drive from several of the Island’s highest-rated beaches, with plenty of scenic walks weaving their way through areas of outstanding natural beauty and beyond.
Neighbouring Tapnell Farm offers plenty of things to do during your holiday, all within walking distance. Tapnell Farm Park is an all-weather visitor attraction, with lots of animals to come and meet, and lots of indoor and outdoor play to keep kids entertained. Next door to the farm park, The Cow Co Restaurant and Bar serves a delicious beef and dairy inspired menu for lunch and dinner, and runs regular events on Thursday evenings. There is also a clay pigeon shooting range on site, run by Top Targets, and an outdoor activity provider, Isle of Wight Adventure Activities.
