We at Buttercup Bus VW Campers love discovering fun-fabulous places for our hirers to go and visit. If it is going to make your VW camper experience go to that next level we take pride in shouting it from the roof tops. And indeed now the weather is turning, that sweet English sunshine is reminding us it’s time to book, book, book away a little summer holiday bonanza. Now where to go? How to entertain the kids? Is there a little spark and excitement to be enjoyed for all? Well yes….durrrrrr….we’ve found just the place that is going to set your inner Indiana Jones alight!! 2 weeks ago we had some hirers take darling Belinda Bus along to the Isle of Wight and low and behold they discovered this charming campsite called Grange Farm. We’ve been oooh-ing and ah-ing all morning over their whole set up. Here’s a little more to tempt the adventurous side of you…. “Grange Farm is a rural site set on the south west coast of the Isle of Wight, in An Area of outstanding Natural Beauty and site of special scientific interest. Panoramic views and fresh air of the coast and surrounding countryside make it a perfect get away. It’s also an ideal area for walking, cycling, fossil hunting, surfing, paragliding, stargazing and wildlife spotting. We have direct access to Brighstone beach, which is part of the fossil rich coastline that has been many a find of dinosaur bones. Whilst staying at Grange farm you can meet our menagerie of friendly animals, which is always a big hit with not only the children but adults too!”
So imagine it. You’ve arrived and parked up either Buttercup or Belinda overlooking the ocean. Dad is blowing up the swimming pool with the flimsy foot pump, mum has kicked back with that jug of pimms and a straw for one whilst the kids are checking out the activities on offer for the week. Ooops did we leave Uncle Fred in charge of the BBQ? Oh no! A recipe for great banter and memories we reckon. They also have a cute family run farm where you get to meet the local residents including… Alpacas, micro & kune-kune pigs, goats, pony, horse, water buffalos, cows, donkey, poultry etc + small pets! And did we mention discount? Yes! Indeed! The lovely folk over at Grange Farm can also provide you with a discount for the ferry (Redfunnel, Wightlink) and won’t tie you into just staying with them like many other campsites do.
Grange farm can be contacted at: Grange Farm, Grange Chine, Brighstone Bay, I.O.W, PO30-4DA

We would like to thank the lovely folk at Grange Farm for looking after our VW camper explorers on their holiday there, and also assisting them with their awning! Such superstars!
Hope we’ve helped to kickstart the planning. Give us a call and see if you can quickly get your favourite camper reserved as slots are getting booked up fast!
Happy camping. The ButtercupBus Team
