| Events in Calbourne | 10 Places to Stay

Calbourne is a delightfully quaint village in the west of the island, five miles from Newport. The pretty stone cottages of Winkle Street, festooned with climbing flowers and greenery, look out over a stream - a familiar sight on postcards and travel brochures. Calbourne has at its heart a village green, where cricketers play matches, and a 13th Century church with origins dating back to 826 AD. The village also has a working water mill grinding flour for sale locally and on the mainland. A tempting selection of bread and cakes baked from the flour are available in the shop and café. The 17th Century mill is surrounded by ten acres of countryside also containing a rural museum, a boating pond, a putting green and a children's bouncy ship. Another great family attraction is Chessell Pottery, where visitors can watch the craftspeople at work and then try their hand in the pottery decorating studio. Calbourne is overlooked by a manor house, situated on a hill. The privately owned Westover House once belonged to a Colonel Moulton-Barrett - a relative of poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Swainston Manor, another grand home with a 12th Century chapel, became a hotel, recently closed for renovation.
