This elegant, Grade II listed, Georgian town house, pictured on the right, is next to a quiet churchyard in the island’s historic capital Newport. Having been refurbished throughout, St John’s House provides period character with tastefully styled holiday accommodation over three floors and is suitable for families or couples. Equipped and furnished to a very good standard, it also has its own enclosed courtyard garden. The nearby town centre bustles with shops, restaurants and pubs. There are local markets on Tuesdays and Fridays, an arts complex at the old quay and multiplex cinema. Newport is an ideal base for touring the island, by car or bus. Carisbrooke Castle is nearby. All the island’s attractions are within easy reach, including Osborne House, Calbourne Water Mill, Ventnor Botanic Gardens, The Needles, NT properties, harbours at Cowes and Yarmouth, seaside resorts, zoos and amusement parks. There are many beautiful walks to discover along the heritage coastline and plenty of sandy or shingle beaches, coves and bays. Outdoor pursuits include excellent scenic walking, cycling, riding, fishing and golf. Shops and restaurants 100 yards, pub 200 yards.
