Car: Necessary

Valentine Farm is conveniently located on the Portsmouth/Middletown Line. Wapping Road was voted one of the best streets to live on by RI monthly Magazine in 2013.

At each end there is a road that leads to a beach (Third Beach in Middletown and Sandy Point Beach , Portsmouth). These are close and an easy bike ride especially to Third Beach which is small and sits on the South end of the Sakonnet River. Just beyond is Sachuest Wildlife Center which is known for its walking paths, wildlife and bird sightings and Atlantic Ocean views. It has an interesting Education Center for visitors. The last 2 years great viewing of the white arctic owl.

Other points of interest are many. On Wapping Rd you will have access to the Sakonnet Greenway which offers miles of walking trails and bridal paths through Land Trust property, farms and Newport National Golf Course.

Just South on Wapping is a pick your own orchard and just North on Wapping is Greenvale Vineyard both are an easy walk and are open to the public.

Just North of Wapping Rd is Newport Polo Fields where international play occurs several months per year on weekends. Tailgaiting is encouraged. Enjoy watching the powerful riders and horses compete. Get out on the field at halftime and join other guests to help to patch the divots. Bring a picnic, a blanket and some chairs and enjoy an exciting evening.

At the south end of Wapping Rd is Sweet Berry Farm. It is frequented and run by locals from April thru December. It has many Pick-Your-Own fields, from apples and berries to pumpkins and Christmas trees. Have lunch, shop for fresh breads, local honey, veggies, fruits, pastries, gifts, or just get a cup of coffee and people watch.

Be careful as you drive south to Sweet Berry Farm as there is a large flock of wild tureys that seem to own the roads!

On Third Beach Road, you will find horse stables, as well as the Norman Bird Sanctuary ---a true gem. Walk the trails, bird watch, visit the shop. It is a great place for nature lovers, and families. They are famous for their annual Harvest Fair in October and their wonderful May Breakfast, both wonderful community events.

Beyond Third Beach is Second (Sachuest Beach), where surfers can often be seen. Just up the hill on Purgatory Rd you will pass the beautiful and exclusive St Georges Boarding School and at the end of Purgatory Rd you will arrive in a neighborhood of restaurants, shops, and Eastons Beach (First Beach) in Newport. It has many activities for families and children in its rotunda.

From First Beach on you are heading to Newport's famed harbor front, the spectacular mansions, history, culture and fine architecture abound. As well as a large selection of fine eating establishments and shops.

Most of the above and much more are located within 10 minutes of our location.

We are an easy drive to Salve Regina, Roger Williams University, and the US Naval Base.

Valentine Farm overlooks Aquidneck Farm, where their breeding herd delivers many calves in spring. The surrounding pasturelands and open space make for a romantic quiet get away while being just minutes from Newport and Bristol, RI.

The Cottage has two stories . The second level has a large open deck from wich to enjoy the panoramic pastoral view, entertain, or just relax and sit in the sun.

This is a great spot for honeymooners!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: True New Englanders. We have lived in the area all of our adult lives and are well versed in what to do, where to go, where to eat, best sightseeing, etc. We really enjoy sharing tips on great places to dine, beaches, nature walks, tours and more.

Why the Owner Chose Portsmouth, RI, USA:
Our location is amazing. A pastoral setting yet only a few minutes to Newport and Bristol and the beaches. Nearby there is a fantastic farm market, Sweet Berry Farm Market, an orchard, 2 vineyards, polo fields, bridal/walking trail, 2 beaches, wildlife refuge, bird sanctuary, farmers markets, and much more. Come for a weekend, a month, the holidays or a summer. A very pleasant retreat from the hustle and bustle of Newport and workdays. Sit on one of the two decks, and enjoy the view, or walk across to take a walk through farmland and next to the golf course. A true getaway.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This is a place of peace and quiet, surrounded by nature. Enjoy the views of farmland with cattle and chicken in the pastures to the east. Newport National Golf Course, a beautiful and challenging course is across the street to the west and is open to the public, as is the Sakonnet Greenway walking and bridal trail. Spend the day site seeing, swimming, riding, or boating. Come for a quick change and go to the polo match at the no of the street. Enjoy our vegetables and flowers when in season, or the many types of birds that visit our feeders, or just listen to the newborn birds living in our arbor in the flowering hydrangea vines. Cross the street to enter miles of walking and bridal trails of the Sakonnet Greenway. Hibernate inside with a good book, or basic cable tv and Internet. Enjoy cooking in the kitchen while your guests sit at the bar. RI Monthly Magazine has named our street one of the best streets to live in RI. Visit and see why.
