The Auction House

Overview
Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Ryde, Isle of Wight, England
The Auction House is part of a stunning new conversion of Ryde's Victorian sale rooms. It is a luxury mews house in a tranquil courtyard setting in the heart of Ryde, barely a 5 minute stroll to the beach.

The stylish kitchen/dining area incorporates a peninsular bar so the cook doesn't miss out on any of the action. There is a downstairs cloakroom.

My husband and I have just returned from a weeks stay at the Auction house. It is every bit as comfortable and well equipped as the owners and reviews say. Comfortable, central, quiet. A real home from home. Would highly recommend.
