2018 European Holiday Home of the Year Finalist
A mews-style house constructed to a good standard in 2017 as part of a boutique, purpose-built holiday complex, set in beautiful countryside just outside Newport.

These beautiful holiday homes are part of The Gallops complex at the Island Riding Centre (all except The Orchard, ref UKC2496 which is detached from the complex). Island Riding Centre opened in 2017 and features a choice of holiday accommodation and unrivalled equestrian facilities making it a popular destination for families, horse lovers and those visiting relatives on the island or on business.
The riding school itself offers lessons from qualified instructors and caters for riders of all ages and abilities, including wheelchair users and those with limited mobility. The equestrian centre boasts a 60m x 25m indoor wax-fibre arena with viewing areas and cafe, a 60m x 40m outdoor arena with quality wax surface and superb drainage. For guests wishing to bring their own horses, there is a purpose-built livery yard with horse walker, sheltered wash down area, solarium and ample grazing (subject to ground conditions). On-site hacking is also available as are escorted off-site trail and beach rides.
Pegasus is accessed off the pedestrian walkway surrounding the landscaped courtyard and has a low level threshold. The ground floor has been designed for those with additional accessibility needs and incorporates a kingsize bedroom and large wet room suitable for wheelchair users. Both rooms have an integral pull-cord alarm to alert accompanying guests on the first floor of the house. The open plan living space is ideal for modern family living with a dining table and chairs, ample seating and a kitchen with adjustable height hob and sink, side opening oven and low level microwave. A Freeview Smart TV is linked to the Wi-Fi providing a choice of media entertainment. Patio doors lead out to a courtyard garden facing south-west. The first floor has a master bedroom with kingsize bed and en-suite shower room. In addition, there are two twin rooms and a family bathroom.
With an ’eco-friendly’ ethos, the centre boasts solar water heating, rainwater harvesting and a bacteria based waste water treatment facility which requires the management of the type of washing detergents that can be used and therefore an on-site laundry facility within the quadrangle is provided together with a supply of the appropriate washing detergents.
Consideration has been given to those with mobility impairment and construction was completed using the National Accessible Scheme (NAS) criteria. This property is comparable to M3I, typically suitable for a person who depends on the use of a wheelchair and transfers unaided to and from the wheelchair in a seated position. This person may be an independent traveller.
Parking for 1 car is provided adjacent to the property with further parking in the main car park adjacent to the accommodation and a free electric charging point is available to all guests. A communal area with seating and sun loungers overlooking a small paddock housing some of the owner’s Shetland ponies and friendly resident sheep, Lambo and Cloudy, is available, as is the enclosed children’s play area with a ‘mini-beach’, sand area and football goals.
Newport is less than 5 minutes’ drive whilst Ryde with its pleasant beaches is less than 15 minutes away. Both are accessible by a direct bus (no 9) which stops right outside the main entrance. A selection of pubs, shops, fish and chip shop and takeaways, chemist and post office are located in Wootton just over a mile away. The island is a paradise for walkers, country lovers, bird watchers and cyclists. There are local forests to enjoy walks and horse riding, and for cyclists there is a choice of challenging off road bridleways, peaceful byways and level purpose-made tracks running along former railway lines. Beach 6 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    Very nice holiday! Good value for money and would definitely recommend! Very quiet and peaceful, great location. Was lovely to wake up to seeing all the horses. Everything to see on the Isle of Wight was not far away at all so we managed to see & do lots of things.

    Lovely setting and nicely decorated, clean, modern house with all the necessities. Spacious. Martin was friendly and helpful, good location with lots to do nearby. My only request would be to have some fans available as it was very hot at night (just the weather, not due to the house)

    Lovely modern well appointed accommodation situated in a peaceful idyllic location. The spacious living/dining space was perfect for our family get-together. Ground floor bedroom and wetroom were ideal for one member of our party who is unable to manage stairs. Altogether the perfect cottage to accommodate our requirements. The service provided by the site manager and staff was excellent. Everyone was helpful and friendly; a couple of minor issues were dealt with and resolved immediately and efficiently. We would definitely recommend Pegasus and the other cottages on the site to anyone.
