Appuldurcombe was the seat of the Worsley family and construction of the English Baroque country house started early in the 18th century. It is located a short walk south of the cottages at Appuldurcombe Farm.
Appuldurcombe House was once the grandest house on the Isle of Wight. However, a shadow of its former self, it is now mostly an empty shell. Although the Great Hall is intact and used for functions.
The house and grounds, designed by Capability Brown, are maintained by English Heritage and are open to the public 6 days a week. Please note that it is closed on Saturdays when it is often used for weddings.
