About kate wilson
Hello I moved to the I.O.W over 25 years ago, the plan had been to only stay a while but there is something about the Island that grabs you and draws you in, which is why people return year after year to holiday here. Although I have now returned 'home' to Surrey, my knowledge of the Island means I am able to answer any questions you may have about the area. I can also provide information about places to go as well as let you into a few local secrets about the best things to see and do. Even though I'm no longer local I am only a phone call away if there are any problems. Also, The Arks neighbour Maria is close by to lend a hand if needed. Whether you end up staying at The Ark or not, please make sure you visit The Island at some point. It is a very special and unique place and I'm sure you will fall for its charm.
Why kate wilson chose Gurnard
I have owned The Ark for over10 years. It was pretty much derelict when I bought it and something of an eyesore in a beautiful, quaint place. Rather than demolish and rebuild I decided to restore and modernise the existing building and although frustrating and difficult at times, I am really happy with the result. The positive comments from locals and passers-by have made it all worthwhile. Yes, The Ark has uneven floors, wonky walls and low ceilings in places. BUT it also has charm, wonderful sea views, light and sunny rooms and quirky charm.
What makes this House unique
Gurnard is filled with 'Enid Blyton' charm and famous for its incredible sunsets which you can watch from The Ark's sofa. The locals are very friendly and welcoming and even when Gurnard becomes busy in the summer months, it never feels crowded or commercial. Although small, Gurnard has a convenience store, a wonderful village café, 2 food-serving pubs a newsagent and florist. From The Ark it is a beautiful, pleasant, flat walk into Cowes, the world famous sailing town, with its variety of independent shops and abundance of bars, cafes and restaurants (There is also an M&S Foodhall and small Sainsburys). Within a 10 min drive is Newport, the Island's main town and within a 30mins drive are Yarmouth, Ryde, Shanklin and Ventnor - in fact the whole Island is within easy reach. If you are feeling active then there are numerous beautiful walks and miles of coastal paths and cycle routes to explore (maps can be found at The Ark). To keep the energy levels up there are pubs, tea rooms and restaurants galore - the favourite ones can be found in a folder at The Ark or you can take advice advice from previous guests, all their comments are in the guest book.
