BED & BREAKFAST or SELF-CATERING
Visitors to Horringford now have the choice of B&B accommodation at Blandings, or catering for themselves in the adjacent Pond Cottage.
They both have the advantage of an ideal location, set in delightful countryside, but with easy access to the rest of the Island. Nowhere is more than half an hour's drive, and there is a cycle route (old railway line) almost adjacent.
The proximity of the cycle route from Cowes to Sandown (A23) makes Horringford the perfect location for cyclists. Cycles and equipment are available for hire in the village and can be delivered ready for your use.
