peaceful isle of wight holiday accommodation

with wildlife at your doorstep

Freshwater Fruit Farm



We offer fantastic value self catering holiday homes at Freshwater on the beautiful Isle of Wight. With so much to see and do, there is no better place to start and finish your holiday than with us!

Our site is small, quiet, safe and family friendly, having been our home for well over 40 years. We are happy to welcome you to our site and also to share our personal views on attractions that you should definitely see (and importantly, those you shouldn’t!)

We have a choice of three holiday units – all on site mobile homes with kitchen, lounge and three bedrooms to comfortably accommodate up to six adults. Each caravan has a garden area, and space to park.

The land surrounding the holiday homes is rich in wildlife – such as our native red squirrels – and the site is only 300 metres from a public footpath which leads to the Tennyson Trail, Causeway, Freshwater and Yarmouth to the West, as well as Afton Downs, leading on to Tapnell, Chessell, Brook and Brighstone to the East (we cannot be seen from the footpath at any point though).

Despite the name, we are not actually a fruit farm. Many moons ago the land used to be a fruit farm and we have not had the heart to change the name to anything less romantic.  We have grown many a lettuce here, but there is no longer any fruit  – the fruit has been taken over by wildlife! (which we think is much more entertaining anyway)

Searching for the right holiday can be stressful, but you can now stop looking!

We can also offer a 15% discount off any Red Funnel crossing (this is a ‘one time use’ code, supplied following receipt of a deposit).




John and Brenda Craddock have lived at Freshwater Fruit Farm since 1972, working the land, raising a family and creating a wildlife haven in the process. John and Brenda now spend their time working on landscaping the Farm and are able to enjoy the benefits of watching the birds feed, the squirrels chase and rabbits run.


We have had three mobile homes on site since 1999, letting them on a self catering basis providing a family friendly, safe and secure environment. Since we started, we have added a laundry room, many bird boxes, several ponds, planted several hundred trees and continued our personal quest to expand our ecology at Freshwater Fruit Farm.



We are very lucky to have an abundance of nature right on our doorstep at The Freshwater Fruit Farm. If you love wildlife photography you have come to the right place. Here are a few video's of our 'regular's'


The Isle of Wight is a wonderful place to spend your holidays, and in particular the West Wight (which is where we live) has so much to offer...
