The property

This superb, mid-terrace townhouse is just five minutes’ walk from the heart of Shanklin and sandy beach, on the Isle of Wight and provides all the home comforts required for a really fantastic holiday.

Entering this contemporary home, you see the care that has been put into every aspect of the fixtures, fittings and furnishings, with the open plan living area providing a welcoming and spacious environment.

The fitted kitchen is at the front of the house and has been extremely well designed and stocked with everything you would need, including a washer/dryer; perfect after those wonderfully sunny days spent on the beach.

There is a dining area just off the kitchen area, with the sitting area having an exceptionally soft and comfortable leather three seater sofa and large armchair.

Upstairs you will find a relaxing bathroom, with a curved bath with a shower over.

There are two bedrooms, both with large fitted wardrobes, which will provide a fantastic night’s sleep.

Outside to the rear is the patio garden with table and chairs; why not enjoy the sea breeze with a meal or refreshing drink?

Shanklin is an extremely popular seaside town, packed full of interesting little shops and superb, highly reviewed restaurants and cafés, including the Fine Nammet, which was awarded gold status by Les Routiers.

Shanklin’s golden, sandy beach is stunning in the summer and winter alike, with the picturesque views remaining unchanged and unspoilt over the years, making this town ideal for a traditional bucket and spade holiday.

The esplanade has everything you would expect, such as seaside cafés, an amusement arcade, crazy golf, bowling, go-karting and even an indoor play area!

For the more adventurous there is always kayaking, bodyboarding, windsurfing, or sailing.

Walk the long way to the beach via Shanklin Old Village and Shanklin Chine, one of the island’s oldest attractions, passing quaint little shops along the way; this is a lovely way to start your day, by walking through the leafy gorge and winding unspoilt woodlands, where you can enjoy rare plants, wildlife and waterfalls.

A wonderful and comfortable base for exploring the east of the Isle of Wight.

The town of Shanklin on the Isle of Wight is a traditional seaside resort, sitting in a sheltered, sunny bay on the south-east coast of the island. Shanklin and Sandown offer all the right ingredients for a great summer holiday, with long, safe, sandy beaches and loads of family attractions, such as a zoo, pier and fairground, plus shops, restaurants, pubs and clubs. The older part of Shanklin, known as Shanklin Old Village, is set slightly lower than the town, where the road winds between traditional thatched cottages, tea shops and charming gardens and parks. Explore Shanklin Chine, a dramatic gorge with a waterfall tumbling through lush plants and mossy boulders. At the top of the cliff is the bustling High Street of shops and the grand Victorian theatre, at the bottom there are cafes, shops and amusements along the suntrap esplanade and sandy beach.
