We are perfectly situated for an overnight stop along the Coastal Walk around the Island, or a weekend away from the rat race on North Island (England). The Wight Mouse is a large old pub/restaurant/hotel only a couple of minutes walk away, very convenient! We love the Buddle in Niton too, good food, good vibes and some quality music at weekends. Its a ten minute drive, just over the hill at Blackgang. Or simply hire a tipi and chill....


We have two upstairs rooms for bed and breakfast; the St Catherine's room ( looking east over the school, the badger set and a heavy horse meadow) and the Cherbourg room with its stupendous view of the channel and cliffs. Downstairs is the Villager room which might suit visitors with wheeled mobility issues, we have access ramps where neccessary for easy rolling.

 Bed and Breakfast

There are also some options for those who want to camp, we recently installed an extra al fresco camping washroom loo with solar lighting...

The Tipis are a delight, somehow these structures have a presence beyound the simple poles and fabric, they seem to be part of the environment and just charm away the cares of 21st century busyness. It is called Bobo Glamping apparently and its great fun. They are furnished with hand made pillows bedrolls and soft quilts, little tables and coir matting so its all cozy and comfortable.

There is a lovely little walking stick twisted hazel tree by the pond, set in a sheltered glade with a picnic barbecue table and cheery lighting for you to enjoy on those balmy Island evenings. You may have to put up with some dodgy guitar playing pilots around the brazier after a great days flying of course!

Butterfly Paragliding, the flying school and Tandem Flight centre, is here on site with our own private take-off and landing field a short stroll away. Tandem Paragliding is an experience not to be missed and we are probably the most experienced and ideally located operation in the country.

Take off is within 50 metres of breakfast in the conservatory, overlooking the channel. Sea breezes often allow extended soaring flights along 16 km of cliffs, sometimes to Freshwater and back again, known as the famous "Blackgang Run".
