Absolutely stunning stay thank you

  • 5 of 5

My family and I get together annually and we chose the Isle of Wight as our destination this summer. Rocklands Manor caught my eye as the most incredible looking self-catering accommodation on offer and we were not disappointed when we arrived at this huge mansion house all to ourselves! We have never stayed anywhere with a proper bar and full size gentleman's snooker room other than in a hotel (and we much prefer having a holiday house to ourselves) -- we spent the first evening acting Lords of the manor between the ball room, bar and billiards table while the children entertained themselves playing table tennis close by.

The swimming pool area at Rocklands Manor is unbeatable as far as I am concerned -- the sun was blazing for our stay and with the retractable enclosure rolled back it provided a shaded, open conservatory style lookout for my elderly parents to sit and happily watch the rest of the family splashing around in the pool or relaxing on the sun loungers. The big barn next to the pool was also comfy and handy for changing in.

Everything about Rocklands Manor is grand and impressive -- such an experience staying in this place. Even the information manual looks grand and is really useful and provides fun facts about the local area and history of the property which I thought was a nice touch.

I could go on and on raving about this property but suffice it to say it had everything we need and more in a holiday home and we will certainly be returning again in the near future.

Highly recommended for families looking for a special location to enjoy time away together.

Thanks again,

D

Best family holiday ever well worth the money

  • 5 of 5

We had a special family holiday at Rockland's manor, and it was glorious. We were daunted by the price at first but it actually worked out very cheap between all of us when you work it our and think what we had! The pool is amazing, we played lots of volleyball, the four poster beds made me feel like royalty, the booking process was really straightforward and it was nice to be able to talk with the people and find out everything you need to. I am looking forward to our next big family celebration so we can rent it again! thank you for such an opportunity it is difficult to find such special places.

Owner's Response: I am so pleased to hear that you enjoyed such a special stay at the superb Rocklands Manor! Thank you for sharing your experience; we certainly are looking forward to your return visit. In terms of exclusive use holiday homes, Rocklands Manor is in a league of its own. The original country seat of Lord Pelham, so much history and elegance, it is now arranged as a large family home to be enjoyed by select family, VIP and corporate stays. This impressive big mansion house is very affordable when the tariff is split between 16 guests. People are starting to cotton on to this now and word is spreading far and wide -- take advantage of the opportunity to stay in such an amazing property while you can!! Very best wishes from the RentaManor team

An exceptional property on a beautiful island

  • 5 of 5

The property was exceptional, unlike any other I’ve stayed in. Each of us slept in huge four poster beds and felt like Royalty! We were there for my colleague’s birthday party and couldn’t have picked a more fabulous location. The hot tub was perfect for gazing up at the stars till the early hours, keeping us toasty warm in winter! The owners couldn’t have been more accommodating and St. Lawrence is a beautiful location. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much indeed for sharing with others your experience at the superb Rocklands Manor. We are so pleased to hear that you had such a great time in our incredible mansion house on the coast! I think as far as holiday homes to rent for exclusive use go, Rocklands Manor has to be one of the best in the world. Grand four poster beds, 8 en-suite bedrooms, numerous big screen TVs with SKY inc. Sports and Movies packages, balconies overlooking English country gardens and croquet lawn, heated private indoor (all year) or outdoor (July/August if requested) swimming pool, recliner hot tub, bar and billiards room, table tennis room, BBQ barn, etc, etc, -- you are sure to have the most fabulous time whether you are looking for a holiday home for a family gathering, corporate event, weekend away with close friends or a celebrity hideaway. The Isle of Wight is beautiful and St. Lawrence is arguably one of the most stunning places to stay. The information manual at Rocklands Manor has been carefully compiled to provide guests with information and tips to enhance their stays at Rocklands Manor, St. Lawrence and the Isle of Wight as a whole. Many spectacular walks can be started right from Rocklands Manor grand entrance and Woody Bay is only minutes walk through beautiful countryside. Best regards from the RentaManor team
