DogPeople Says : Appuldurcombe House

Hamish visited Appuldurcombe House in July 2007 during a short break to the Isle of Wight. He and his people enjoyed the mostly ruined house and its impressive gardens. A couple of rooms have been restored to give an idea of the house’s splendour at its height. The Tudor cellars are surprisingly extensive – giving an idea of how important this house once was. Information boards give an account of the house’s history – with a few photos of its time as a school. This was an ideal visit for an aging Hamish!
