Hale Common - ISLE OF WIGHT

What's around Hale Common?


Located inland from the Isle of Wight in the central eastern part of the island near Apse Heath is the hamlet of Hale Common. This little community is wonderful for those interested in getting an insight into farming as the hamlet is an agricultural centre that focuses on its farmhouses. Renting a cottage on a farm in Hale Common is a brilliant idea to be immersed in an unfamiliar way of life, as waking up with the cockerels and falling asleep with the setting sun is the perfect way to experience everything that life on a farm has to offer.

One exciting thing to participate in during a visit or a stay in Hale Common is the Hollands Strawberry Farm (PO30 3AQ). At this farm, visitors can pick their own strawberries and there is also a shop selling delicious cream and fresh strawberries from the farm. Hollands is only open during the summer months from May until September but makes a lovely activity for those looking for a hand’s on farming encounter.

Close by to Hale Common is the small village of Arreton. If you feel like a change from the rustic lifestyle then a day trip here is brilliant and educational, as the village is home to the Shipwreck Centre and Maritime Museum.
