About Us

David and Arielle Barratt look forward to welcoming you to Haven Hall. Because Haven Hall is privately owned and adjoins our home, you will usually get a chance to meet us on arrival and at breakfast. We are very much involved in running the whole Hotel. Although we have only lived here since 2013, we just love this location and this view – and we love sharing it too! The peaceful quiet energy of the Island has won our hearts. We think you will agree that it has a very special charm and beauty. Even though David and Arielle both had previous experience in property development, neither intended to embark on such a massive, multi-million pound renovation project. However, Haven Hall is the happy result of their collaboration and combined talents – something to be proud of!

David originally came from Newcastle, but spent most of his life in San Diego, California and Maui, Hawaii doing property development. He originally qualified as a Civil Engineer and did his Masters at Manchester Business School. In the USA, he was also licensed as a Lay Minister in the Episcopal Church, and director of the Spiritual Directors Formation Programme. Due to his love of gardens and meditation, he later became a Trustee of the Quiet Garden Movement in the UK. He is keenly interested in practical psychology, philosophy and NLP. His passion has always been to create places of beauty, peace and tranquillity, so running Haven Hall is a joy.

Arielle originally came from the East Coast, USA. After winning a Study Abroad scholarship to study Fine Art at UCL Slade School, she settled in the UK. Her talent expanded into doing commercial illustration work, caricatures for the newspapers and cartoon work. This first career in art provided the basis for her creative design of Haven Hall House & Gardens. She also studied medicine for 6 years and enjoyed a second career as an Osteopath & Naturopath in 1986. Her work as a healer then expanded into studying the mind/body connection for a third career as a fully accredited Trainer of NLP, teaching and giving talks for 20 years. Her 3 published books detail her NLP approach to healing, psychology and philosophy. As well as running Haven Hall, she continues to do insightful Executive Coaching work.

What the Barratts enjoy most is meeting so many interesting people from all walks of life and from all over the world! So plan a time for your trip and get in touch with David on 07914 796 494. He’s more than happy to help you select the best room for your needs.
