  • “The house was pretty amazing and the owners lived next door and we had a few chats with them, they were very friendly and helpful.”


    The location was spectacular but the only drawback was the condition of the track/road to the property was very poor with a lot of deep potholes. The owners informed us that the road belonged to the National Trust and not them, apparently there was a rainstorm and the surface had been washed away recently. We managed in our car but relatives with a small car had to leave their car all week and come with us as the holes scraped the bottom of his car a couple of times and we did not want to take a chance of damage to his car. Apart from that we could not recommend highly enough the property and the location.

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.
