The Caponiers

The Caponiers

The definition of a caponier is ‘a defensive structure in a fortification’. The Caponiers are two apartments built into the moat at ‘The Fort’. The Upper and Lower Caponier apartments are a two and a three bedroom. Recently refurbished to a high standard with a super stylish industrial decor.  They have period timber sash windows, iron shutters and rifle slots (this was once an army barrack for 24 soldiers). Both the upper and lower levels retain many original features including exposed 2-foot thick brick walls and the metal hooks soldiers’ hammocks were hung from. Access to the Caponier apartments is via a brick tunnel connected to the Fort’s central parade square.   

 

 

"The crew have found the Isle of Wight a really pleasant place to work and I doubt that they've missed sitting in traffic jams on the M25...!"

"I would wholeheartedly recommend Lobster Locations to any visiting Location Manager. Lisa has treated us with speed, friendliness and fairness throughout and she pulled several locations out of the hat for us. Her location owners clearly trust her and she knows a lot about the island as a whole. She's been a true ally and she makes me hope that I'll be back to film on the Isle of Wight again soon."
