Nettlecombe is a farming hamlet in southernmost Hampshire, on the Isle of Wight. It is the site of a deserted medieval village[1] and there is evidence of earthworks close to the present hamlet.[2]

There are several fishing lakes in Nettlecombe.[3]

It is roughly centred on the corner of High Street and Nettlecombe Lane, about half a mile north of Whitwell. Until 1952, the Isle of Wight Central Railway had a station on Nettlecombe Lane.
