The hamlet lies on the A3056 road, near to the larger settlement of Sandown. Branstone is approximately 5 miles (8.0 km) south-east of Newport. Branstone Farm Studies Centre was established in 1973 to give younger children an opportunity to sample life on a working farm. Branstone was a small village community in the 18th century and was the site of the first co-operative shop on the Island; being part of the Shanklin, Lake and Branstone Cooperative Union. The shop is now part of two private houses, called Headley House and Headley Grange.
