Farringford House is a large manor house, with a farm and 9 hole golf course, located at Freshwater on the Western tip of the Isle of Wight in England. It currently serves as a hotel. [ [http://www.farringford.co.uk/ Farringford: The House of Tennyson] official website]

It was also the home of Poet Laureate Alfred Lord Tennyson who resided here during much of his tenure as Poet laureate until his death in 1892.

Tennyson wrote fondly of his beloved home. For example, Tennyson wrote:

"...far from noise and smoke of town, close to the ridge of a noble down,"

"you'll have no scandal while you dine, just honest talk and wholesome wine"
