Golden Hill Fort is situated within 50 acres of Golden Hill Country Park. Originally built in 1863 in a distinctive hexagonal shape, which is elevated sixty metres above the North West Coast of the Isle of Wight. This spectacular Grade I listed building has now been beautifully converted into 18 luxury houses. Ideally located on the Western edge of the island it is the perfect place to visit many areas of outstanding natural beauty.

The developers have succeeded in preserving the fort's historic and architectural significance and maintained many original features whilst adding the latest in modern conveniences. Internally, the property offers brick barrel vaulted ceilings flooded with coloured LED mood lighting, underfloor heating with solid oak floors and high quality built-in appliances. A sofa bed is available in the living area which can be used to accommodate two extra guests. Externally, the communal rooftop gardens (approximately 5,500 square metres), is where guests can enjoy stunning panoramic 360 degree views across the Solent, English Channel and countryside. These are the only landscaped rooftop gardens on a Grade I listed building in the country. The central courtyard is where the parking spaces are allocated and features a large water fountain.

The Fort is situated near local tourist attractions such as the rugged white cliffs of Freshwater Bay, the multi-coloured sandstone cliffs of Alum Bay and the famous landmark Needles Rocks, footpaths, bridleways and horse riding are on your doorstep plus an 18-hole golf course which is located on the downs above Freshwater.

Local shops, restaurants, pubs and cafes are close by in Freshwater, Yarmouth or Totland. Colwell Bay is the nearest family beach and is a fifteen minute walk away, while the popular surfing beach of Compton Bay is a short drive along the coast. The West Wight Sports centre, complete with swimming pool is based in Freshwater, perfect for entertaining the whole family.
