Farringford in Freshwater, the former home of Victorian poet laureate Alfred, Lord Tennyson, will get a major facelift transforming part of the building to what it looked like in its 19th Century heyday — if the scheme is given the green light by members of the Isle of Wight Council’s planning committee.
