About The Old Club House

The Old Club House was once the clubhouse for the Royal Isle of Wight Golf Club. Opened in 1882, the club was a popular haunt for celebrities and Royals. Now a holiday cottage, the Old Club House has been adapted for accompanied disabled visitors.

Sit outside on the verandah and enjoy views across the duver or take a short walk to the local beach for a spot of rock pooling. For lunch, why not head to the village of St Helens, stop in the cosy pub for a bite to eat before exploring further afield. 

A short drive away, Bembridge Fort is a fascinating place to visit. You can book on to a guided tour to show you around this historic building.

Heating: Night storage heating.

Parking: There is space for two cars on the hardcore immediately to the rear of the cottage.

Garden: Please note the garden hedge has been removed as this was an invasive hedge and spreading out onto the Duver. There is a stock fence erected to keep the garden contained and a new hedge has been planted. Therefore, this garden is not private at the moment though enclosed.
