Grange Farm, Brighstone Bay, Isle of Wight

The ultra-green, festival-hosting Isle of Wight has reinvented itself into a hip little island offering something for everyone today, with exceptional waves for surfers, as well as kite-surfing, paragliding, and summer events that attract new crowds every year. The isle is shaped a bit like a front-on cow's head. At its temple is, fittingly, a town, called Cowes. At its respective ears sit the towns of Yarmouth and Ryde, both of which have regular ferry services to the mainland. And perched atop tall cliffs, behind the beach at Brighstone (about midway down the left of the cow's jawline), sits Grange Farm campsite.

Two flat, grassy fields go right to the edge of the cliff, and there's an overflow field across the road, aptly christened the Cool Camping Field. You'll need a sturdy tent for the winds blowing across the top of these fields, but the reward is a panoramic view across the sea and an easy scramble down to the beach below.This is a family-run, family-friendly site - kids will love getting close to a Noah's Ark of farm animals, including llamas, kune-kune pigs, goats, water buffalo, and a variety of poultry. A varied site on a varied isle.
