Good Hotel Guide Review
In award-winning landscaped gardens that look out to sea, Arielle and David Barratt’s cliff-top Edwardian house is a five-minute stroll down the coastal path to the beach on Sandown Bay. The hands-on owners, who live in a separate wing, run their island guest house with a gracious spirit. Carefully chosen period furnishings give the bedrooms and suites Arts and Crafts character; nearly all the rooms have views over the water. Head outside: the swimming pool and grass tennis court in the tranquil grounds are ideal for active sorts. Mornings, French doors in the breakfast room open to the patio and flowerbeds – a cheery sight to accompany the spread of fruits, cereals, breads, jams and home-made compotes.
