The Seaview room has a comfortable Sleepeeze pocket-sprung double bed, washbasin, electric blanket, wifi & hdtv. Additional sofabed for third guest. Fabulous south views of the garden and ocean. Ask us about our 'Volunteer Program'!
We have three upstairs and one ground floor guest room for bed and breakfast; the St Catherine's room (looking east over the school, the badger set and a heavy horse meadow) and the Cherbourg Seaview room with its stupendous view of the channel, cliffs and The Needles.
There are also some options for those who want to camp, we recently installed an extra al fresco camping washroom loo with solar lighting and the lower garden has a lovely greenroom hollowed out of the willow tree thicket. Ideal for shelter from the sun and wind or a barbecue and brazier by night.
Please contact us for the prices of the different camping accommodation types, all prices can be specified when you book.
We are perfectly situated for an overnight stop along the Coastal Walk around the Island, or a weekend away from the rat race on North Island (England). The Wight Mouse is a large old pub/restaurant only a couple of minutes walk away, very convenient! We love the Buddle in Niton too, good food, good vibes and some quality music at weekends. Its a ten minute drive, just over the hill at Blackgang. Or simply hire a bell tent and chill....
The Paragliding Centre:
Butterfly Paragliding, the flying school and Tandem Flight centre is on site in a separate building.
Please contact us if you are interested in Paragliding, this is booked and paid separately from your accommodation.
Take off is within 50 metres of breakfast in the conservatory, overlooking the channel. Sea breezes often allow extended soaring flights along 16 km of cliffs, sometimes to Freshwater and back again, known as the famous "Blackgang Run". A tandem flight is a wonderful experience and you can learn a lot as you share in piloting of the craft.
We are in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB) on the south coast of the Isle of Wight. The "Round the Island" coast path runs right by us here; there are plenty of cycle and mountain bike routes and amazing rambles (and scrambles) too. From our garden you can access a fabulous lostland and adventure trail leading down to a very secluded beach.
Abundant wildlife and flora populate the extraordinary landscape; badgers, foxes, pheasant, partridge, kestrels, buzzards,doves, cats, dogs, rabbits, gulls and peregrine falcons are seen on a daily basis including our resident chickens! Fishing off the beach has provided beautiful sea bass, mackerel, whiting and even a ten pound cod!
