The Boathouse was built in 2012, to offer something completely different for weddings and other special events.  Located on Priory Bay, on the north east coast of the Isle of Wight, it looks over the Solent and mainland from the Spinnaker Tower to Goodwood.   

The wildly romantic Priory Bay is a very special place where you can create your day in the informal surroundings of a sandy tree-lined bay.  

For 2022 we are offering ceremonies only at The Boathouse whilst work is completed on the ‘Retreat Unit’.  Our plan is to have the ‘Retreat Unit’ available for 2023 – subject to weather conditions during the construction of this venue.   

The venue is on a small private estate adjacent to the Priory Bay Hotel.  Only 2.5 hours from London it has the feeling of a faraway island.  Your guests can arrive directly on the beach in 15 minutes by hovercraft from Southsea.

Your guests can stay in our yurts and cottages or a range of local accommodation.  

Venue hire charges from £3,500.
