Arreton Manor in Arreton, in the centre of the island, offers luxurious accommodation in a historic property. Based on the Isle of Wight, it is perfect for an idyllic holiday.
The manor is brimming with rich history. It was originally recorded in 872 AD in Alfred The Great's Will and eight British monarchs were known to have owned it, including William The Conqueror, Henry VIII and Elizabeth I. The manor was a favourite of Charles I and his father James I reviewed his troops on the front lawns. It truly is an unusual place to stay.
Due to huge popularity, this private home now offers a range of individual bedrooms to choose from in the main house and a separate suite which boasts its own entrance. Each room is stylishly designed and offers a comfortable and relaxing stay. All the rooms come with a king-size bed.
The Nook: This wonderful hideaway comes with its own entrance. Large oak beams span the high A-line ceiling and there is an open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room which has large windows looking into a visual feast of nature. The bedroom has use of an elegant private shower room and there is a patio just outside for your use.
Culpeper Suite: This master suite offers an opulent experience. This is a spacious suite which enjoys original Jacobean oak beams on the walls and ceilings and boasts views across to the Ventor Hills as well as the Arreton Downs. The en suite bathroom has a shower and spacious bathtub. A walk-in wardrobe and a second dressing area completes a sumptuous experience.
The Adrintone Bedchamber: Nestled on the first floor, this spacious and airy room has a cosy feel, reminding one of lazy days in France. It does not have a shower but it does have a handheld shower for the bathtub.
