Welcome to The Tap Room, a luxurious three-bedroom holiday home nestled within the historic Golden Hill Fort, an enchanting Grade I listed, moated, hexagonal fort on the Isle of Wight near Yarmouth. Steeped in history and beautifully restored, this unique property promises an unforgettable stay in a truly remarkable setting. The Tap Room’s design follows an intriguing upside-down style, where the ground floor comprises three exquisite bedrooms, ensuring a restful night’s sleep for up to six guests. Venture to the first floor, and you’ll be captivated by an inviting open plan living, kitchen and dining room area. The living area is a perfect blend of sophistication and comfort, furnished with a corner sofa plus further seating with a large smart TV. The kitchen is equipped to a great standard with Neff appliances and wine fridge. Whether you’re a seasoned chef or simply enjoy preparing meals together, the well-appointed kitchen will inspire your culinary creativity. French doors lead from the sitting room to a balcony spanning three sides of the fort with a private seating area, offering a captivating view of the fort’s interior and fountain. Take in the tranquil ambiance, enjoy a morning coffee or a glass of wine on the sofa or patio table and chairs.
As a guest at Golden Hill Fort, you have shared access to the crowning jewel of this property – the 360 degree roof terrace. From this vantage point, immerse yourself in the awe-inspiring panoramas of the surrounding landscape. Gaze out at the rolling hills, sweeping coastline of the Solent with views to Dorset and the sparkling Solent and Channel seas, sights that will leave you spellbound and yearning for more. Beyond the fort’s walls, the Isle of Wight beckons with its abundance of natural beauty and captivating attractions. Golden Hill Fort is ideally located to explore the island’s diverse offerings. Nearby, you can discover quaint villages, with Yarmouth and The Needles close by, stunning beaches at Colwell and Compton and picturesque countryside walks, all waiting to be explored. The Fort is close to top restaurants in West Wight.
For history enthusiasts, the Isle of Wight boasts a rich heritage, including Osborne House, the former holiday residence of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. Carisbrooke Castle is another ‘must-visit’ during a stay. If you seek adventure, there are ample opportunities for watersports, boating, cycling, and hiking, allowing you to connect with the island’s rugged coastal landscapes and island footpath. Residents qualify for a discount on superyacht charters, arranged with the owners, picked up from the picturesque Yarmouth Harbour. After a day of exploration, return to The Tap Room, where you’ll find solace within the fort’s historic walls and create cherished memories with loved ones. Whether you seek relaxation, adventure or a touch of both, The Tap Room at Golden Hill Fort is the perfect luxury retreat.
