Description

Shergar is an ideal base, set on an equestrian complex offering first class facilities for horse riders of all ages and abilities.

These beautiful holiday homes (all except The Orchard, ref UKC2496 which is detached from the complex) are part of The Gallops complex at the Island Riding Centre, a unique horse riding and self-catering holiday destination, located on the beautiful Isle of Wight. They even welcome four legged friends on site too, so that you give your own horse a holiday to remember as well.
Surrounded by acres of countryside, just a few miles outside of central Newport, the centre itself offers lessons from British Horse Society approved instructors and caters for riders of all ages and abilities, including wheelchair users and those with limited mobility. The equestrian site currently includes a purpose-built luxury livery yard able to house up to 18 horses with a sheltered wash down area and solarium. It also boasts an outdoor arena with a high quality wax surface and superb drainage, unrivalled on the island.
Designed around a beautifully landscaped courtyard, The Gallops holiday complex is a pedestrianised quadrangle consisting of seven, eco-friendly, purpose-built holiday home’s and on-site staff accommodation. The inner courtyard offers a peaceful relaxing environment away from vehicles, with outside seating areas and sun loungers. All of the properties overlook the central garden and its focal point which is a stunning spherical water feature. All of the seven units can be accessed via a level block paved pathway and have low level thresholds for easy access on foot or by wheelchair. Marengo (UKC2491), Pegasus (UKC2492) and Seabiscuit (UKC2493) have been specially constructed to take into consideration the needs of those with mobility impairment and they have been completed using the National Accessible Scheme (NAS) criteria as a guide and these three properties are comparable to M3i standards for accessibility (typically suitable for a person who depends on the use of a wheelchair and transfers aided to and from the wheelchair in a seated position with assistance). Ample parking is provided in the centres adjacent car park and there is parking provided for disabled guests just a few yards from the accommodation itself. All properties apart from Marengo (UKC2491) have shared use of an electric car charging point, free of charge, Marengo (UKC2491) has its own private electric car charging point. Each of the properties within The Gallops is named after a famous horse, each with a story to tell!
The Island Riding Centre has been designed with a number of eco-friendly measures in mind, these include solar panels, a rainwater harvesting system and a waste treatment plant that purifies and recycles water back into the local water course. Given the sensitivity of the water treatment facility, the centre provides an on-site laundry room with bacteria friendly washing detergent supplied, free of charge. The location of the site is within easy reach of beaches and attractions. The islands capital town of Newport is 3 miles away whilst Ryde with its pleasant beaches is 5 miles away. Wootton, which is the nearest village is 1 mile away with a good selection of pubs en-route to Wootton Bridge. There are also a couple of shops, a fish and chip shop, chemist and post office. 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.
Marengo (UKC2491), Pegasus (UKC2492), Sea Biscuit (UKC2493), Sefton (UKC2494), Shergar (UKC2495), The Orchard (UKC2496), Valegro (UKC2497) and Warrior (UKC2498) can be booked together to accommodate up to 55 guests.

    My partner and I came here for a quiet escape after our wedding with our 9 month old daughter. The cottage was well equipped, clean and very modern. They had everything you could need in them and catered to our needs with a cot and high chair for our baby. The hosts were very accommodating and was always on had if we needed them. They were also kind enough to greet us with a bottle of prosecco and fresh flowers as it was our honeymoon getaway. I could not recommend this place more! Do not let it put you off that it is a new place. It is fantastic and we really enjoyed ourselves. Thankyou again for welcoming us :)
