Lower Sutton Farm
Mrs Barbara Philips
Isle of Wight
Lower Sutton Farm, also known as "The Dinosaur Farm" is situated on the South side of the Isle of Wight on the main coast road, about three miles South-East of the village of Brighstone between Isle of Wight Pearl and Atherfield Bay Holiday Centre.
We are a small friendly, family farm, with sheep, horses, ducks and, of course, dinosaurs!
This is the view from our cliff looking towards Freshwater. Set in a beautiful coastal SSSI "Site of Scientific Interest", it is a great area for bird watching and star gazing. Quoted in the Isle of Wight County Press by the Vectis Astronomical Society "One of the best sites to observe the sky is the Dinosaur Farm Museum".
We are ideal for a quiet country holiday amongst lovely rural views, with many walks and places of interest to visit on the Island.
We have 5, six berth caravans situated near to the farm bungalow, with rural views. They have three bedrooms and are modern, well furnished units with all modern conveniences. A shower and a flush toilet are inside each caravan. They have electric lighting, fridge, kettle, microwave, toaster and colour TV. Plus gas cooker, fire and water heater with hot water to all sinks and showers. Electric and gas are inclusive. The only items not supplied are towels, duvet covers, base sheets and pillowcases.
At least 30% of a brachiosaurus dinosaur, the most complete of its type in Western Europe, was found on our farm in 1992. Parts of it, and other fossils, are on show here on certain days of the year throughout the Summer. See the Dinosaur Farm Museum web site for details. We were the H.Q. for "Live From Dinosaur Island", many of the scenes were filmed on our farm, and most of the panaramic views were of our cliff and the surrounding area.
