The Watch House, Bembridge, Isle of Wight
The Watch House is a fantastic family home, located in a great part of the Isle of Wight. Amenities in Bembridge are close by and there is private access to the beach and a slipway for boats.
Originally built for the Admiralty, the house commands stunning views over the Solent and sleeps 10 in 5 comfortable bedrooms. Decorated to a high standard, there are plenty of reception rooms, a family kitchen and a separate dining room. The house enjoys a secluded sunken rose garden to the rear of the property as well as terraces with views on to the Solent.
The Island is diamond shape and is easily defined therefore with North, South, East, West and the Centre of the Island. It is approx 14miles x 27 miles so you can drive round it in a day - we often do!! You can only get to the Island by boat, hover craft, plane or helicopter, we can organise anything! Also, it is tidal which means that the views of the tide coming in and out means a constantly changing coastline. The Island is a constant inspiration to those who live here and we are sure to those who visit.
The Island was a Victorian play ground, even good enough for Queen Victoria herself and she built her own magnificent residence, Osbourne House. Dickens and Tennyson both were also inspired by the Island. The Island therefore has some splendid Victorian homes and a wealth of pretty cottages for us to live in and for you to holiday in. Some command fabulous views, be them in land looking over the rolling downs, or around the coast giving them the views of the sea and the air.
The Island is lucky enough to have some really terrific places to enjoy meals. We love our food and proud of how much is grown and supplied locally. Eateries range from seaside beach cafés with stunning views, great pubs, usually perfectly situated at the end of a good walk, and a Michelin starred restaurant for a real treat, and everything in between.
