With fourteen bedrooms and ten baths, Shalfleet is a large Isle of Wight holiday home comprising a breathtakingly restored manor house, a cottage, a farmhouse, a barn and swimming pool near the coastal resort of Newport. Pets welcome.
Whether you’re having a reunion or a wedding, or you just feel like being with twenty to thirty or so of your closest friends, Shalfleet Manor is an open, happy spot on the Isle of Wight for a self-catering holiday.
Guests who come here are enchanted by the gentle mingling of modern conveniences with late 16th century surroundings. The outbuildings are cheerfully arranged around the property, and each has open floor plans, kid-friendly bedding, bright open spaces and outdoor comfort.
The drawing room in the Manor house gathers around a restored, 17th-century fireplace. There are rustic wood beams throughout, and all the soft places to nap take you back in time in dreamy comfort. Full of life, this lovely property maintains its charm even with a heated, outdoor pool and modern appliances. Take a walk in the sprawling gardens and visit ancient yews, or moor your own boat on Newton Creek for excursions whenever you like.
