We love music here at Mulberry Cottages, and nothing beats going to a live concert, but many of us love a good night’s sleep in a comfortable bed!  So why not make a holiday of it, come and stay in one of our Isle of Wight cottages – so relaxing!

In two decades the Festival has grown from a couple of dozen talks in 1995 to a ten day packed programme of more than 200 authors from all over the world. It’s very exciting, they are welcoming back three truly great novelists as their stellar Anniversary Authors: Kazuo Ishiguro, Rachel Cusk and David Nicholls, all of whom appeared in Bath in 2005. Come and stay in the Bathwick Apartment – ideally situated.
