The property

Settled in the valley of Luccombe near Shanklin on the Isle of Wight, is this charming stone-built character cottage, The Hideaway.

Attached to the owner's home and boasting traditional features, stunning sea views and a private hot tub, The Hideaway makes for a fantastic getaway for a family of four or two couples.

Be welcomed into the spacious living/dining room with original flagstone floors and exposed beams, where you can look forward to lighting the electric woodburning stove and snuggling up on the plush three-seater sofa as you escape with your favourite TV series on the concealed TV.

As you start to feel peckish, head to the well-equipped kitchen with washing machine, dishwasher, electric oven and hob and microwave, to conjure up a delicious feast.

Savour a flavourful meal at the dining table, as the wine flows and plans are made for the days ahead.

If you’re not ready for the evening to end, why not enjoy evening drinks out in the shared garden or take a dip in the bubbling hot tub for a night under the stars.

Climb the stairs where you can wash away the day with a blissful bath or revitalising shower, as your towel warms on the nearby towel rail.

Catch your rest in one of two well-presented rooms, a double and a twin, each with a basin and wardrobe for storage, before a day of adventures.

Venture over to Shanklin, where you will find an excellent selection of activities on offer, including adventure golf, the Shanklin Theatre where you can catch a live performance, the charming Rylstone Gardens and a plethora of restaurants and pubs, perfect for those evenings where you don’t feel like cooking.

Walkers will delight at the fantastic trails on offer with the Shanklin Chine offering scenic walks through a gorge along woodland paths, as well as the Big Mead Nature Reserve.

For those looking to relax, head to the Shanklin Beach, where you can lay down your towel and soak up the sunshine, build sandcastles with the little ones or paddle the shores.

Nearby you will find the Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary where you can meet the rescued animals, followed by the Amazon World Zoo which houses over 200 species and the Wildheart Animal Sanctuary in Sandown, home to exotic animals and previously featured on ITV’s ‘Tiger Island’.

Be sure to take time out to visit the village of Godshill with its charming model village and picturesque Munsley Bog, it is well-worth a visit.

For a holiday with something for everyone, look no further than The Hideaway.

About the location


Sandown 2.2 miles; Godshill 4 miles.

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. Shanklin is great starting point for numerous coastal and inland walks (with the option to return using the local bus network). The rest of the island, including Sandown, Godshill, Blackgang Chine and The Needles, is all easily accessible.
