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.
