About The Old Club HouseThis former clubhouse is now a quirky holiday cottage with a verandah great for wildlife watching.
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.
