From its cliff top position, with 180 degree wrap around views across the sea, Haven Hall is exactly that; a five star haven for adults only set in two acres of award winning gardens with grass tennis courts and a heated pool with treatment rooms.

Not surprisingly Haven Hall received a glowing review from their very first visitors, the actor Colin Firth and his family:

“The location by itself would be enough. But what made the visit such a joy was your hospitality, the food, the comfort of the rooms and your company. We’ll certainly be coming back.”

Conceived by David Barrett, son of the famous Sir Lawrie Barrett of Barrett Developments, with his American wife Arielle, the restoration of this Edwardian hotel has been a labour of love for the couple who have also built their own wing with many eco features and a pretty kitchen garden.

“After running my own property business in California and Hawaii, we visited the Isle of Wight and fell in love with the location,”

said David. “The three rules of property development are Location, Location, Location, and we discovered a stunning location here!

“This is our home and we now want to connect with interesting people and to put them together in this extraordinary place.”

Alan Titchmarsh awarded Haven Hall “Best Commercial Garden 2017” for Isle of Wight in Bloom, and the sweeping tiered gardens have been extensively landscaped and planted to accent the natural beauty of the view, with influences from famous landscape artist Lutyens.

The sumptuously decorated hotel has six en suite rooms, all with sea views, and the beautifully restored building also houses a further eight luxury self-catering apartments – one of which is a chic two bedroom penthouse on the top floor. Peter Crouch and Abby Clancy were first visitors to this lofty luxury pad:

“Thank you for having us at your beautiful home. The views are stunning and the hospitality has been amazing. I’m afraid you won’t be able to get rid of us now!!! See you next year!”
