A beautiful country house set within 11-acres of grounds.

Nestled amongst a sea of woodland countryside is The Hermitage; a beautiful, recently renovated country house with just over 11 acres of mature grounds with attractive country and sea views.
They say that first impressions are the most important, and when you walk into the spacious entrance hall and see the grand staircase which welcomes you to come and see the rest of this spectacular house you won’t be disappointed. The Hermitage is awash with a modern style of class from the renovation and an old fashioned authenticity which you can only truly find in the original wooden floorboards and the open fireplaces of a country house.
To the left of the staircase you will find an elegant panelled room which has access to the terrace and garden by two sets of French doors and for the more competitive of you there is a games room next door. Here you will find a pool table and table tennis and for those of you who want to work out there is also a separate gym with a tread mill, exercise bike and weights with an en suite shower room.
Upstairs there is a choice of 10 bedrooms all with either en suite shower or bath or rear or garden views. To house the bookworms of the party there is a reading area on the landing with stunning views of the manicured front garden, a perfect little setting for some peace and quiet whilst digging into a good book.
Why not refine your holiday further and hire a local caterer to provide a welcome meal on your arrival? You could enjoy some real pampering with a mobile beauty therapist or how about hiring a hot tub! Even the children can be catered for with a Children’s Entertainer by prior arrangement.

Historic Reviews

Great venue for a group of adults having a celebratory weekend party.
Hard to find a house as well specâ’d as this one although the kitchen equipment lets it down a little.

We had a great stay at the hermitage. We were a group of nine couples and hired a private bus with guide to go around the island. Good way to visit all sites without the hassle of parking and very reasonable price of about £14 each.

The Hermitage is a beautiful house in a fabulous location. We were a party of 18 guests including 8 children and the accommodation was perfect for us. The house and grounds are very big with plenty of room for people to live, play and relax.
It is a short walk to the Hoy monument at the top of St Catherine down where there are lovely views across the Island. From the monument you can walk (approx 30 minutes) to the Wight Mouse Inn at Chale where the food and drink is great. The Hermitage is very close to Blackgang Chine which is great for kids, and a it’s a short drive to Compton Bay which is a large lovely unspoilt bay. Great for swimming, surfing, and fossil hunting. The Hermitage was a perfect place to stay for our family group.

Information pack is full of advice and places to visit

This property was wonderful. It had everything we needed and more. There are too many positives to list and I will definitely be trying to find a reason to return.
This house is amazing and I would highly recommend. The White Horse in Whitwell is well worth a visit, fantastic food and great service.

I booked the Hermitage to accommodate a group of friends travelling from across Europe to celebrate my 40th birthday. It proved to be the perfect house in a truly stunning setting. Each of the beautifully appointed ensuite bedrooms was spotlessly clean and the kitchen and games room were very well appointed.
Overall, the property was hugely impressive and we had a brilliant week. Thanks to the property owner for allowing us to stay in such a wonderful place, and thanks to the Blue Chip team for such a well organised trip. If we get the opportunity / find another excuse for a group gathering I wouldn’t hesitate to book the Hermitage again.
We visited in Nov so many of the touristy places were closed for the season, however, Tapnell Farm went down with the little ones and the Garlic Farm is always worth a visit.

We absolutely loved our holiday in The Hermitage. Stayed there the same time last year and loved it then and couldn’t believe it exceeded expectations again this year. x10 adults and x12 under 6 years olds and everyone had a wonderful time and didn’t want to leave.
