Northcourt is a Grade II-listed Jacobean manor house on the edge of the picturesque village of Shorwell on the Isle of Wight, set with 15 acres of glorious gardens. The property is conveniently situated in rural south-west Wight, close to beaches with easy access to many of the Islands attractions and wonderful walking up on the Downs. Furnished in a traditional style with modern conveniences, Northcourt has up to 21 bedrooms with 20 bathrooms, and can be rented as one smaller self-contained wing or two adjoined wings for large groups. The flexible accommodation can sleep anywhere between 6 to 36 and regularly hosts events, such as boot camps, period dramas, family reunions, birthday celebrations and wedding anniversaries.

The ‘north wing’ of the manor provides accommodation for up to 20 people (in 9 bedrooms with 8 bathrooms), with grand, often regal rooms on the ground and first floor, with further quality accommodation on the second floor. The house benefits from a new large kitchen, external dining terrace, and 32 foot function room with grand piano as formal dining room seating 50+.

The interlinked or separate ‘west wing’ is by relative comparison on a more domestic scale, yet still provides accommodation for up to 16 (in 7 bedrooms with 7 bathrooms). The house benefits from a large living room, sun room and enclosed rear garden.

For special celebratory occasions, both ‘wings’ are interlinked and can be rented together, along with five further bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms in adjoined or separate parts of the manor providing a total of 21 bedrooms with 20 bathrooms comfortably accommodating 40+ people.

The house and kitchens are perfect for celebratory dinner parties and we can pass on details of local caterers and their teams to entertain you. We will happily recommend a variety of local activities and attractions to interest all manner of guests making your stay on the Island even more enjoyable. We are able to offer discounted ferry travel booked through our trade account on crossings from Southampton, Portsmouth or Yarmouth.

The Crown Inn located within 5 minutes walk through the garden is a welcome distraction for those wanting to have a night off cooking, or fancy a pint of local Goddards ale. Crown Inn
