I'm looking for a holiday house to rent for a week next summer (2007)
on the Isle of Wight (England). The house needs to sleep 14 people in
at least 7 double bedrooms with 4 of the bedrooms being en-suite.

We are looking for something of good quality and price is not an issue to consider.

We are not interested in the following properties: "Sweet Briar,
Ashey, Nr Ryde, Isle of Wight" or "Bellevue, Ventnor, Isle of Wight".

Hello  jonathan1000-ga 

I found a complex made up of three cottages, 

In the first cottage the accommodation is in one double room with
en-suite showerm and one twin bedded room next to bathroom.
In the second there are two bedrooms, one double with large ensuite
shower room, the other with full size twin beds and ensuite bathroom.
The third cottage is the largest of the cottages. It has three
bedrooms, one with 3ft twin beds, one double bed with cot and a
children's room with 3ft bunk beds.

Would this accomodation be acceptable? When would you like to go ?

Hello Jonathon1000, 

I have found an excellent property Merston Manor in Merston, Isle of
Wight which is in the centre of the island close to two motorways, the
A3020 which runs from the North to the South of the Island and the
A3056 which gives access to the East coast of the Island.

It looks close enough to the motorways to access the whole Island yet
far enough away from the motorways to afford some peace and quiet.

Here is a map of the area showing Merston just south of the main town of Newport.

The property was built in 1605 and is apparently mentioned in the
Doomsday Book and is the oldest brick building on the Isle of Wight.

There are eight bedrooms in all - four - as requested - being ensuite.
All the double rooms sound steeped in history being named after
previous owners of the property including a Sir Francis Dawtry.

If you are organising this trip, I would recommend making sure that
you get the Admiral Hawkins room for your trouble as this room boasts
a 17th century four poster in the master bedroom along with the
ensuite bathroom.

Central Heating is included in the summer months and the cost of the
rental is around 3000.00 a week although between the fourteen of you
comes out at a reasonable, 214.00 per week which for this kind of
style is pretty reasonable.

As far as checking availability, this will be on request as they are
only currently booking up to the end of 2006.

The property is let through Island Holiday Homes on Island Holiday Homes

Tel 01983 521113
Fax 01983 822030

Office Location
138 High Street
PO30 1TY 

The link to have a look at this property can be pasted into your
address bar and is;

I hope that this helps and hope you have a great time on Holiday.
