The Old Club House, St. Helens
The Old Club House is a unique property on the east side of the Isle of Wight. As its name suggests, it used to function as a clubhouse. It opened back in 1882 and was the clubhouse for the Royal Isle of Wight Golf Club for most of its history. Nowadays, however, it is a self-catering holiday cottage that has been outfitted with plenty of modern conveniences. While its remote location will appeal to many holidaymakers, you may have a weak and/or intermittent mobile signal while staying here.
One of the cottage’s stand-out features is its veranda, from which you can enjoy lovely views of the St Helens Duver – a duver is a term used on the island to describe a low-lying piece of land that occasionally gets flooded by the sea. As many as five people can stay here and there are three bedrooms in total: a double, a twin and a single. There are two bathrooms and the shower room that’s adjoining the twin room is fully accessible. The cottage also has an open-plan living/dining area and a kitchen. There’s a garden that’s enclosed but isn’t fully private right now as the hedge has been removed.
The Old Club House is a great option if you want peace and relaxation, but still want to have the Isle of Wight’s many attractions within easy reach. Visit the nearby villages of Bembridge & St Helens and take some time to explore the coast. Drive to the central town of Newport and discover its many independent shops and well-known retailers. There are also plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants welcoming visitors and locals alike. Be sure to visit The Needles, a trio of chalk stacks rising nearly 100 feet out of the sea, and stop by the popular amusement park Blackgang Chine if you’re after some thrills and spills.
