Breakfast is served in a separate breakfast room, which is light and airy. For more details see 'Breakfast'.



There is free parking with each room.

The house is on 2 levels at the front and goes down a level at the back making it 3 floors to the rear, as it is on a hill.

To the front of the house there is a set down area, with paved path to the front door.  The parking is further down a slope and gravel. There is one step up at the front door. The St Helens Room is on the hall floor, which has quite a steep step up into the shower room, which is a double shower with sliding door, which also has a step into it.

The lounge and breakfast room are both on the hall level.
The Bonchurch Suite, Godshill & Tennyson Rooms are all on the first floor, which has a wide, double staircase up. All 3 of these rooms have walk in showers.

We try to cater for everyone, but due to it being a Victorian property there is limited wheelchair access.
