Bed and Breakfast at



(Click here for self-catering)

Many farms boast conversions but not many offer bed and breakfast in a cosy converted piggery!

Blandings is set within a small group of farm buildings at Horringford Gardens just south of Arreton and was formerly the piggery and wainhouse where the farm carts were stored. Whilst keeping its rural character, Blandings offers every modern comfort in a twin room with en suite bath and shower room. It also has its own wooden sun deck that on warm sunny days is the perfect place to enjoy breakfast and plan the day ahead or relax with an evening sundowner.

There is always plenty to do. Nowhere on the Isle of Wight is more than about half an hour's drive from Arreton which is near the middle of the Island, a few miles to the south of Newport, the main town on the Island. The cycle route from Cowes to Sandown (A23) runs through Arreton close to Blandings offering the perfect location for cyclists. Cycles and equipment are available for hire in the village and can be delivered to Blandings ready for your use.

Blandings is set in a delightfully leafy area with pleasant views of the surrounding downs and countryside.  We are registered with the local Island Tourist Board and the AA with a prestigious four star rating.  We feature in Best B & B's in Britain and are members of Wight Farm and Country Holidays.  The accommodation is completely self-contained with its own entrance and sundeck.
