51 Beach View – Isle of Wight
- Yurt for 2
The Priory Bay Hotel, with its private beach and award-winning restaurants, has been one of the finest destinations in the south for many years. So it’s no surprise that the yurts they have created, set in the woods above the beach and around the hotel overlooking the sea, are a sumptuous blend of comfort and creativity. The yurts are artfully but softly decorated, each by a different designer, with a huge double bed, sofas, bean bags and cushions that echo the littoral setting. Out on the deck through the French doors, the swaying trees frame the beach that waits invitingly below. Guests have full use of the pool and tennis courts at the hotel, as well as being served their full breakfast there. If that wasn’t enough of a treat for the day, you can always stroll the coastal paths or, for those really special occasions, charter the yacht to take a cruise in the bay.
