Good Hotel Guide Review
Looking out to sea, Arielle and David Barratt’s cliff-top Edwardian house on the Isle of Wight is just a stroll, along the coastal path, from the beach on Sandown Bay. The engaging owners, who live in a separate wing, have furnished their guest house with carefully chosen period pieces that give the bedrooms and suites an Arts and Crafts appeal. Nearly all the rooms have views over the water. The day begins with a spread of fruit, cereals, breads, jams and home-made compotes in the breakfast room, whose doors open to the patio and the flowerbeds in the award-winning landscaped gardens. A swimming pool and grass tennis court are ideal for active sorts. The owners will advise guests on where to dine in the evening.
