This coastal, historic hideaway offers a 60 acre estate with superb Solent views and grounds teeming with wildlife and birds of prey. The 2 restaurants (one with alfresco terrace) showcase seasonal cuisine specialising in local & foraged produce, alongside an innovative wine list featuring organic and bio-dynamic wines. Enjoy the individually designed bedrooms, roaring log fires, exquisite service, in-room beauty & holistic treatments, outdoor pool, 6-hole golf course, tennis courts, falconry classes & fab coastal walks. The hotel’s private beach is ideal for winter strolls and sunbathing in summer. A wedding pavilion on the beach hosts marriage ceremonies.
The Priory Bay Hotel is part of the following Editors' Picks:
"A wildly romantic country house hotel Priory Bay is the crème de la crème for beach weddings, set in a 60 acre estate with gardens that run down to the sea and a private beach. Choose from a barefoot wedding in the beach pavilion or a grand affair in the opulent rooms in the house followed by either champagne or canapés on the lawn, a beach barbecue or a gourmet dinner."
"Make a date in your diary for a trip to the Royal Isle of Wight County Show on 29th June. And keep the agricultural theme going by checking into The Priory Bay Hotel, part of which was once a Tudor farmhouse. You’d hardly know it from the elegant accommodation that’s offered in its 22 rooms, two self-catering cottages and three luxurious yurts."
"Rooms 16 to 20 in the Priory Bay Hotel were formerly a Tudor farmhouse, but other parts of it are even older. Two thatched barns in the grounds date back to the twelfth century when St Helen’s Priory stood on this vantage point. When the priory was suppressed in 1414, its lands were given to Eton College. In 1808 a house was built here by Sir Nash Grose and Gertrude Jekyll, the great English gardener, advised on the grounds."
"On an island with such an abundance of fresh local produce to be gathered from both land and sea, and with so many delicious dining experiences to choose from, you’re sure to eat well during a visit to the isle of Wight. However the luxury Priory Bay Hotel, nesting between the popular sailing villages of Seaview and Bembridge, now offers fantastic cookery-school courses overseen by Michelin-starred chef Alexis Gauthier, offering an experience that’s certain to invest you with the skills to practically transform the culinary inspiration you enjoy during your stay into fabulous dishes at home."
