The Isle of Wight is a quirky and interesting place to visit. Here is a selection of some of our favourite haunts, as well as links to other interesting stuff further afield that we love.



Medham Farm

We provide award winning five star holiday accommodation in a beautiful and spacious one bedroom cottage on the banks of the River Medina in Cowes. Why not come and stay with us at the home of Tipsy Wight® !

Carisbrooke Castle, Newport

A gorgeous castle situated on a hill on the outskirts of Newport, the County town of the Isle of Wight. Fabulous views and a donkey powered well to boot.

Little Gloster, Gurnard

Our favourite island restaurant, located right on the beach overlooking the Solent. Excellent food and service.

Isle of Wight Beekeepers Association

We love our honey bees and over the years our hives have multiplied to keep up with demand. The Isle of Wight Beekeepers Association is an amazing group of extremely knowledgable and friendly beekeepers who help promote beekeeping across the island.

The Disabilities Trust

Tipsy Wight's® main nominated charity and an organisation that we admire hugely. The Disabilities Trust is a leading national charity providing care, rehabilitation and support for people with an acquired brain injury, profound physical impairment or autism. This is a very special and effective organisation.

The Hedgerow Handbook by Adele Nosedar

We love this little book. Exquisitely illustrated and packed full of facts and folklore about the English hedgerow, this is the modern go to text on the English (and Welsh) hedgerow. A classic, no less.


Gloriously creative, happy and interesting, Bestival is one of the most enjoyable experiences of our year. A weekend of amazing music that takes place at the very end of the festival season just before our great big autumn harvest begins.
