Heritage

The ancient village of Arreton, settled over 1000 years ago, is set in the traditional and geographical heart of the Island, and offers the visitor a glimpse into the past.

Arreton Barns comprises many of the buildings, features and artefacts of a traditional English village from many years ago. Arreton was the main staging and horse changing post between Newport and Sandown. The village church features a Saxon wall and Burma Star window. The on-site pub, The Dairyman’s Daughter, is named after Elizabeth Wallbridge, a local girl who died in 1801 and was made famous in the contemporary book ‘Annals of the Poor’, who is now buried in the graveyard.

In keeping with our history, The Barns is traffic free, safe for children and families alike. Visit the local artisans, see their traditionally produced crafts, enjoy wholesome local farm food and agricultural artefacts, along with the Island’s very own Shipwreck Centre and Maritime Museum. More artists and craftsmen are being attracted to Arreton Barns all the time, from painters and photographers to leather craft and glass blowing. During your visit, watch the artisans at work and pick up a unique souvenir of your visit to Arreton Barns and the Isle of Wight.

A stroll round Arreton Barns encompasses the 12th Century Church of St George, with its famous Burma Star window. Pause for a moments contemplation beside the historic Carp pond, mentioned in the Doomsday Book, and the graves of our forbearers.

The shop the Corn Exchange displays selected souvenirs, while The Dairyman’s Daughter free house serves food all day, and into the evening.
