Farringford self-catering cottages are located within the grounds of Farringford Estate near Freshwater Bay. Farringford was the home of Alfred Lord Tennyson, Poet Laureate, from 1856 until his death in 1892. Farringford has recently undergone an extensive renovation program with the aim of restoring it to how it was when Tennyson lived at Farringford Estate.
The newly planted Walled Garden is already well established and a beautiful haven for butterflies and bees. You are welcome to appreciate the grounds and gardens during your stay.
All the self catering cottages have been re furbished to high standards with a home from home feel. They offer a great haven for those looking for tranquillity or a great location from which to explore the Island. There are fantastic walks straight from the Estate and it is not far to travel to some of the Islands more infamous attractions.
