Arreton Manor is an early Jacobean Manor House steeped in history and dates back to as early as 872. Once owned by Edward the Confessor as noted in the Domesday Book and is specifically mentioned in the Will of King Alfred the Great in 885. Also, Queen Victoria often visited the Manor and is reputed to have planted a conifer on the south lawn.
The Manor is light and spacious with original features and is set in 5 acres of formal gardens. Offering only 2 luxurious guest bedrooms with en suite facilities situated in the East wing providing private first class accommodation. “The Adrintone Bedchamber” is accessed via its own landing to the North of the East Wing. It has a four poster bed and is furnished with antiques and rich fabrics of a Tudor style and has a separate private bathroom.
“The Culpeper Suite” faces south in the East Wing via another landing and offers a super king size bed, again sumptuously furnished with rich fabrics and antique furniture. This bedroom is also available as a twin by prior arrangement. The bathroom is en suite with a bath and a separate shower. Both bedrooms have tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryer, wardrobes, sitting area and TV with DVD player. To make your stay even more enjoyable we are able to offer a mini bar service. In addition, there are the added luxuries of bathrobes, clothes brush, sewing kit and Molton Brown toiletries. A cot is also available upon request.
Guests may also enjoy the Old Hall with its oak panelling and original Jacobean fireplace as a relaxing area and will find themselves having breakfast in the Old Court Room.
The beautiful landscaped gardens and part of the house are open to the public for the peak summer months only, but guests would be able to enjoy the gardens all year round. There are many features in the garden to appreciate and the ongoing development means there is always something new to see.
There are many excellent pubs with restaurants in walking distance, a church, post office/shop and Arreton Barns with its craft shops to enjoy. Arreton is centrally located, ideal for exploring the island and for the walkers there are many public footpaths leading from the Manor.
Arreton Manor offers a charming, peaceful retreat for everyone to enjoy and allows you an insight into the past. It is a family home full of vitality and interest and Andy and Julia Gray-Ling warmly welcomes you.
