If you’re looking for a relaxed and friendly rural retreat from which to enjoy the beautiful Isle of Wight countryside, then High Pines B & B is for you.
Adgestone is on the southeast of the island close to the village of Brading and about 2 miles from Sandown seafront. It is in anarea of outstanding natural beauty with lovely woodland walks and some of the most spectacular views on the island, such as Culver Down. There is a wildlife hide just a few minutes walk away where you can watch red squirrels, woodpeckers and other birds.
Easy access to bridleways, footpaths and cycle paths make this an ideal location for walkers and cyclists. Alternatively, relax on the nearby sandy beaches or visit the many local attractions such as the Steam Railway, Roman Villa, Garlic Farm and Adgestone Vineyard. Sandown and Shanklin Golf Club with its challenging County Championship course is a short distance away.
The nearby villages of Brading and Newchurch both have pubs serving excellent food. Numerous first class restaurants are also within easy reach.
We have two large first floor guest rooms. One is available with either twin or super king beds and has a bath with shower. The other has a king size bed with shower. Both rooms are warm and pampering, the beds so comfortable and the nights soquiet that you may find it difficult to get up for breakfast, which is normally served in the privacy of your room. There is plenty of choice and is made with the best of local seasonal produce. Vegetarian and gluten-free (coeliac) diets are easily catered for.
We look forward to welcoming you soon for what we hope will be the first of many visits. Here are just a few comments from some recent guests.
We hope that you will have a relaxing and comfortable stay. Our two large guest rooms are both triple aspect with plenty ofnatural 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-kingbathroom. 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 eggs from our own hens cooked as you like them (local free-range are used when they are not laying or if you would prefer 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 cater for gluten-free (celiac), vegetarian or other special dietary requirements if you let us know when you book.
