Situated within a row of traditional cottages owned by the National Trust, it is run by the Brighstone Museum Trust and provides a fascinating view of village life in the 19th century.
Other features include a young olive grove, a small organic kitchen garden and a traditional tea garden. There are also delightful walks across the adjoining Mottistone Estate.
The popular National Trust Shop, which has a wide range of gifts and cards including many local items, is located within the ticket office at the entrance to the garden.
