This contemporary apartment is on the second floor of the 19th-century former service block, inside the castle walls. With the keep rising above you, enjoy the excitement of having a castle all to yourself. Step out your door into the tearoom courtyard and indulge in a slice of cake or two.
Accessing Carisbrooke Castle through the medieval gatehouse is just the start of your adventure when staying at the Bowling Green Apartment. Explore the ramparts of the curtain wall, designed to defend the castle from artillery attack from the Spanish Armada, the Motte and Keep built in the 12th Century and Princess Beatrice's privy garden that belonged to Queen Victoria's youngest daughter who was Governor of the Isle of Wight and lived at Carisbrooke Castle. Another noticeable resident was King Charles I who was imprisoned here prior to his execution. The bowling green situated behind the Keep was created as the king had developed a passion for the game.
An excellent stay in a fine apartment. All the EH employees around the castle were friendly and helpful.

It was such a good stay! The welcome hamper was amazing and the castle was great. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will struggle to top the experience with another long weekend away!!
