Why stay

Steps to the famous cliff-walk of Newport, this delightful mansion encompasses the charm of the old world. From whirlpool baths adorned by elegant drapes to a classic wrap-around porch to Victorian fainting couches to stoned-carved fireplaces to mahogany.

Why wander

Historically Newport has had quite a story and you'd be wise to read up on it before visiting. So much to see when you're there that you almost feel like this city-by-the-sea is a museum itself! Most known for it's famous mansion-walk. The Newport mansions were "cottages" built at the turn of the 20th century by some of America's most well-to-do families and now, many of them have now been converted into museums (see - The Breakers). This cliff-path walk is one of the most memorable for both the gorgeous oceans views and the jaw-dropping architecture bordering the cliff-side. In addition to the magical miles of mansions: For the sailor at heart, this is a harbour to not be missed. Take a tour with the Sightsailing of Newport in July or August, around this time you'll be sure to catch the famous Jazz festival. Newport's folk festival in July is also a must-attend. 

Indulge in

Wednesdays are for afternoon tea accompanied by many sweets and savouries.
