A small hamlet between Cowes and Yarmouth, Porchfield lies among flat green fields and copses. The village post office is open two mornings per week. The Sportsmans Rest is the popular village pub which serves great food and also has a small childrens' play area.
There are two good walks from the village, the first starts opposite the pub where there is a lane leading down to a farmyard and on to the shoreline, a lovely walk at any time of the year. The second walk leading off the main road from Porchfield to Cowes takes you on the Coastal path to West Cowes.
