Middle Lodge

4 bedrooms
2 bathrooms
8 guests


This impressive 19th century lodge is made up of three floors and positioned within a private garden. The outside space stretches beyond the garden, with Appley Park on the doorstep adding an extra 27 acres of beautiful parkland for guests to explore, it backs on to Appley beach, which has views across the water towards the mainland. The stone mullions and architectural details honour the history of the building, whilst the interior is tastefully decorated, including all the creature comforts needed in modern life. The fully equipped kitchen on the ground floor has a breakfast bar for those on the go but for more formal meals, a large dining area is just off the kitchen. The large, comfy sofas in the lounge are perfect for relaxing on after a day of holiday activities, perhaps watching the wall mounted TV or enjoying a post dinner coffee. The snug on the lower ground floor provides the younger guests with a designated space to play, simply watch TV or challenge each other on the games console!
Three light and airy bedrooms are located on the first floor, two of which have decorative fireplaces and all have access to the main bathroom on this floor, which has a large corner bath and overhead shower. The fourth bedroom is located on the lower ground floor, next to the snug and has use of a shower room. Outside the mature garden includes a charming terrace with table and chairs. There are some superb restaurants on the island, but on those balmy sunny evenings, this private garden offers the perfect place for al fresco dining. Alternatively, you could embrace the British custom of local fish n chips on the seafront, only moments away!

Middle Lodge offers a retreat from day to day life, but within easy reach of amenities, should you wish to use them. A fifteen minute walk west and you will reach Ryde, which has a good selection of individual shops, restaurants, bars and tea rooms, as well as a wide, sandy beach. The promenade offers traditional
attractions, including fun fair rides and ten-pin bowling, whilst more active visitors can enjoy a variety of water sports, such as canoeing and swimming, in both the sea and the local pool.

Although the island is renowned for its warm, sunny climate, plenty of the attractions can be enjoyed throughout the year. Explore the quaint villages, indulge in cream teas and local produce, discover the inventive ways to use garlic at The Garlic Farm and restaurant, take the plunge at the Tapnell Farm Aqua Park, explore the rides and grounds at Robin Hill Adventure Park, broaden your knowledge at the museums and historic sites – or fall in love with the adorable animals at one of the dedicated animal centres, like the Donkey or Wildheart Animal Sanctuaries. Alternatively step into the world of Queen Victoria by visiting her Italian inspired holiday home Osborne House, designed by her beloved husband Prince Albert or enjoy the individual charms offered at Carisbrooke Mill or Quarr Abbey. Perhaps a day simply fishing, surfing or walking the coastal path, exploring the magical Shanklin Chine or Ventnor Botanical Gardens is more up your street.

Finally, don’t forget that there is often an event or festival to factor into your holiday agenda, such as the famous Isle of Wight Festival, Cowes Week, the Walking Festival, which encompasses the whole island and the Classic Car Extravaganza, held annually in Ryde.

Thank you for our wonderful stay at Middle Lodge in Ryde for the eight of us, 5 adults and 3 children. The location is great 4 minutes from the beach and children’s playground nearby. We could walk to different places to eat and to Ryde High Street. The house is all we could have asked for with space for the eight of us and a lovely enclosed garden for the children. We hope to return.

Absolutely beautiful house and garden, and such a relaxing experience. Could have easily spent the whole holiday just enjoying the house! Waking up to see the red squirrels frolicking in the trees outside the bedroom window was magical. Perfect location for easy access to beach and shops etc for those non-car drivers. The Island Holiday Company were a delight and super helpful too.

Beautiful lodge in the middle of a park , 1 minute walk to beach. Overall very clean and very high class linen and towels. Felt very private and secluded. Gardens are very well maintained and spacious to relax or dine outside. Kitchen is large and very well equipped. Good selection of games / dvds and books. Lodge felt very spacious even with 8 people. We will definitely be returning.
