NorthCourt Manor ( East wing)

Back to holiday search


Overview

 
We have three  en-suite rooms available for bed and breakfast which can either be double or twin.  At times we are also able to offer three additional rooms in the  middle North wing and a downstairs room for less abled visitors.
 
All rooms are large, comfortable and furnished in a traditional way. Each room has its own period character such as panelled walls or a free standing roll top bath. They all have a view over the garden or the paddock.
 
There is a guest’s sitting room with a wood burning stove lit in winter. Guests are encouraged to play the pipe organ, dated 1798, in the hall, or the grand piano in the music room. There is also a full sized snooker table in the library,  and a grass tennis court in the summer.
 
Breakfast is served in the dining room which includes homemade bread and home produced honey and jam, home grown fruit from the kitchen garden and a cooked breakfast with locally sourced produce.

This is what one Tripadvisor review said:  "What a surprise when we arrived; expecting Osbourne House to be the highlight of our visit we were not prepared for the magnificence of this Jacobean mansion, which looks every inch as if it should be included in a National Trust or English Heritage handbook. John and Christine are passionate about their house and garden and have prepared a fascinating history of both, which is really worth reading. The piping hot water was plentiful enough even for the huge roll top bath, and the window shutters kept out any drafts and all of the light, meaning I was blissfully unaware of the presence of daylight and subsequently the last to breakfast every morning. which resides in their hallway (well, doesn't everyone's?). This was our first visit to the Isle of Wight and there were other delights we enjoyed during our stay although 'the North Court experience' threatens to eclipse them all." September 2010

Richard Bull

The Richard Bull room is named after the gentleman who brought new wealth to Northcourt in 1790 and modernised the house and estate greatly. He even added a closet under the stairs in this room, which still acts as an extra small bathroom with bath, not so easy for the less agile!-but there is now a separate shower. Sunny room, facing south overlooking the parterre, with the best garden aspect.
