Self-catering Accommodation

With a choice of 10 houses ranging from 2 to 4 bedrooms we can accommodate couples, families, groups and even school parties. With an onsite riding centre we do attract riding groups but our central location means we are equally popular with non-riders, holiday makers and business travellers looking to visit and explore the Island.

Seven of our units were newly constructed in 2017 around a lovely courtyard setting to accessible standards and all with downstairs WC and bathrooms of which three units have downstairs wet rooms and bedrooms suitable for wheelchair users and guests with limited mobility. Making up the quadrangle are our dog friendly units converted from a Victorian dairy barn complete with original oak beams and fully enclosed gardens.

For larger groups and multi-generational families, The Orchard a bungalow renovated in 2017, offers five star luxury with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, huge open plan family area and ample space for entertaining both inside and out.

Equestrian Complex

This riding centre is set in acres of beautiful countryside just outside of Newport and is central to all of the Island’s many tourist attractions and beaches. The horse riding available is suitable for riders of all ages and abilities, and we have a choice of experienced and qualified instructors on hand to develop your riding skills whether you are a beginner or advanced rider.

The facilities include a 60m x 40m outdoor arena, with high-quality wax fibre surface and superb drainage, a 60m x 25m indoor arena with wax fibre surface unrivalled on the Island and an onsite hacking track extending to around 1.25 miles. Our purpose-built livery yard houses 18 horses and includes a sheltered wash down area and solarium with a 6 horse electric walker.

What people are saying about us

From our initial enquiry to arriving on the day, the team were so helpful and genuinely wanted to ensure we had the best time possible celebrating my friend’s hen weekend. The accommodation was perfect and the early start for the beach ride was well worth it!

Amazing weekend. The accommodation was lovely and the beach riding was such a highlight. The horses were fantastic, would have happily taken Louis home with me!

Emma Wren

We had a fantastic family holiday at the Island Riding centre. The accommodation was excellent but it was the quality of the horse riding experience, coupled with the superb professionalism of the staff that made it even more special.

We stayed for 3 nights in The Gallops which was first class. Our horses and ponies were stabled on site in the outstanding equestrian facilities. Five stars all round. The team couldn’t have done more for us.

Loved every second of our stay. Our horses didn’t want to leave. The indoor school is to die for, the best surface I’ve ever ridden on.
