DescriptionAs you approach The Farringford along the long sweeping drive flanked by mature trees, you will appreciate why Alfred Lord Tennyson chose this immensely charming house as his home.
A great deal of the West Wight has been designated as 'an area of outstanding natural beauty' and with The Farringford, set in 33 acres of parkland, boasting uninterrupted views over the downland, it makes a perfect retreat for holidays or breaks throughout the year. The hotel has retained its immense charm and period features, providing guests with a traditional quality service and all the facilities and comforts one would expect from a hotel in the new millennium.
If self catering is your preference, we have a flexible range of self-contained accommodation to complement the hotel rooms. Emily Garden Suites are spacious rooms to suit the needs of younger families. Hallam stable apartments offer a more rural appeal while Alfred Cottage Suites boast 2 en suite bedrooms. All self catering guests are welcome to use all hotel and recreational facilities at no additional charge. Meals may be taken on a regular or ad-hoc basis at Shallots Bar and Bistro or in the Downs Restaurant.
At The Farringford, we offer the Downs Restaurant for a formal dining evening. A beautiful AA awarded rosette restaurant, is set to the backdrop of Afton Downs. To complement the main house we offer Shallots Bar and Bistro as a more relaxed, informal place to eat. It is set next to the pool and is open throughout the summer months.
We can offer a full wedding service, opening with your civil ceremony, followed by your formal wedding breakfast concluding with your evening reception. This allows us to host your whole day or any single part of it.
