Facilities for Cowes residents and visitors
There are a range of facilities at Northwood House that are maintained by the Charitable Trust and available for public use.
Enjoy the Pleasure Park
Enjoy the 17 acres of parkland that surrounds the house, with gardens cared for by our team of volunteers. Several trees illustrate the Victorian fashion for collecting rare species at the time the Park was established by the Ward family.
Areas of the park can be hired for outdoor events like fairs and rallys.
Family friendly play
The Park surrounding Northwood House provides wonderful outdoor space for the Cowes community. There is a carefully maintained children’s play area, Tennis courts that are free to use and the bowling green. Public toilets are available in the summer months.
Well behaved dogs are welcome to exercise on the lawns and paths – providing their owners clear up after them!
Known locally as the “community hall” The Stables is a self contained hall with catering facilities and toilets. Affordable hire rates make it a favourite for local clubs and classes.
Pay and Display Car Parks
The Charity operates two car parks at Northwood House & Park. Proceeds are used to maintain the buildings and grounds, and undertake restoration work. Click here for more details on the car parks and permits available.
