The ultimate in glamping on the Isle of Wight

The great outdoors is all very well in theory.  But for those of us unable to relinquish creature comforts, camping can sometimes feel a bit too real.

Priory Bay Hotel is steeped in history.  There was a Cluniac monastery on the site almost a thousand years ago, and a 14th-century doorway built by medieval monks stands at the hotel's entrance.  Tudor farmers and Georgian gentry added to the house over the centuries, and now it stands offering elegantly restored accommodation.

Go glamping in a seaside yurt

The Priory Bay Hotel is a historic country house hotel, and was, as the name suggests, once the site of a monastery. Surrounded by 70 acres of rolling countryside and stunning views across East Solent, you can take full advantage of the beautiful seaside setting by staying in one of their quirky yurts, a secluded hideaway decorated in seaside chic complete with running water and electricity, that overlooks the hotel's private beach.

Look out for red squirrels running around the surrounding woodland (a common sight on the island) and enjoy morning coffee on the well-positioned balcony, perfect for gazing out at the early sunshine glittering on the sea beyond.  We can't imagine going glamping in a more idyllic spot.

Joni accompanied David on this trip with Radio 4 and was hugely impressed by the Priory Bay’s new chef Oliver Stephens, who took the group foraging around the grounds of the hotel and showed them all the amazing food available right on his doorstep. Joni came back and spoke very enthusiastically to me and we decided that we would have to give ourselves an early Christmas present of lunch at the Priory Bay.
