St Benedict is a beautiful and comfortable home built in 1881, and is decorated in the style of the late Victorian period.

In summer guests may take tea on the lawn, in winter they may sit in the drawing room in front of a roaring fire. Dinner is available in the Victorian dining room with a choice of traditional recipes prepared ‘below stairs’ and served via the dumb waiter.┬áThe full English breakfast is served country house style from warm serving dishes on the sideboard.

We have four double bedrooms:

‘The Old Nursery’ is a large and cosy double bedroom on the second floor with views over the garden and to the sea. It has a private bathroom with a roll top bath.

‘Nanny Hawkins’ is a bright and comfortable double bedroom on the second floor with a sea view. It has a private bathroom with a roll top bath.

‘The Colonel’s Room’ is a large and spacious room on the first floor with an imposing double bed. It has a private bathroom with roll top bath.

‘Mr. Parry’s Rooms’ are a suite of 3 rooms: a large double bedroom with a four poster bed, a separate dressing room through double doors of which there is a large shower room. It is a very sunny, roomy and comfortable set of private rooms with garden and sea views to the south.

In addition there is the “Children’s Room’, which is available for families with two single beds, and room for ‘put you ups’. This room does not have its own bathroom, so families must share, and rates are negotiable.

Each room is decorated and furnished with meticulous period detail but with contemporary comfort in mind. Each of the bathrooms is also decorated and furnished in 19th century style with a deep baths and lashings of hot water.

We will do our best to make your visit to St Benedict an opportunity for you to be well looked after in the unique and unforgettable surroundings of this living museum.
