We hope that you will have a relaxing and comfortable stay. Our two large guest rooms are both triple aspect with plenty of natural light and views across the south-facing garden and fields beyond.

The comfortable beds are made up with duvets and soft pillows, all with a hypoallergenic filling. We now have a 3 folding guest bed to enable a third person to stay in the room, if required.

Both rooms have a comfy settee and easy chair, a small wardrobe, chest of drawers and breakfast table. Ceiling lights are dimmable and there is a bedside lamp and standard lamp for a more ambient mood.

There is a powerful shower in the bathroom within the king size room and bath with shower in the twin/super-king bathroom. You will also find soft towels, face cloths, bathrobes, slippers and environmentally-friendly toiletries, some of which are made locally.

The rooms have flat screen TV with Freeview and DVD player, wireless internet, i-Pod dock, alarm clock, hair drier, makeup mirror, iron and board.

The silent mini-fridge contains mineral water, filtered tap water and fresh milk. You may wish to bring your own wine or Champagne to chill. There are also a variety of teas, instant and filter coffee, hot chocolate, some biscuits and chocolates.

We serve breakfast in your room, alternatively on the patio or in the summerhouse if you prefer to enjoy the morning sun. For guests occupying both rooms, breakfast is in the dining room. We love our food at High Pines and use sausages and bacon from local butchers and Isle of Wight free range eggs cooked as you like them. If you fancy a change from the traditional English breakfast, why not try smoked haddock with a poached egg, scrambled egg with smoked salmon or freshly baked croissants? We will cater for gluten-free (celiac), vegetarian or other special dietary requirements if you let us know when you book.
