  • "The apartment was lovely and in a fabulous location in Old Shanklin Village."

    We had everything we needed in the apartment and loved the shower which was a pleasant surprise for an older property! Tina also left us a bottle of Prosecco and some dog treats which was a lovely welcome. There are so many places to eat and drink in Shanklin you are spoilt for choice which is great after a day of exploring the island. Louie our dog had an amazing time running free on the dog friendly beach at Compton and there are two lovely parks right near the apartment for those early morning routine walks. All in all we had fabulous week and will definitely book again for next year.

  • "Fantastic location."

    The flat met and exceeded our expectations - we are a family with 2 x teenage children and a dog. We were also greeted with a lovely welcome pack - something for everyone. Owners were lovely and contactable should we need them (we didn’t). Certainly would recommend this property to anyone visiting the island. You have everything literally on your door step -. Beach, variety of good restaurants/pubs, takeaways, shops - our children specifically enjoyed the sweet shop and crepes. Couple of extra comments - We paid for a parking pass which allowed us to directly park across the road and have free use of local authority car parks around the island. You can park for free if you are willing/able to walk but would recommend factoring this extra cost (we paid £59 for the week) into your holiday. The convenience is certainly worth it. The walk to the beach is only around 5-10 mins - but it is fairly steep with a number of steps - we did this every day but you can also drive. Having the local recreational park across the road was exceptionally convenient for our dog so didn’t miss a garden/private yard.

  • "Great apartment very clean and had everything you need."

    In a lovely spot in the old village and some very nice restaurants near by, the Italian next door is great. Make sure you book before you go if you can because they all seem to get booked up very quick.

  • "Old Village View is an apartment in Old Shanklin and has most of the facilities for an enjoyable stay, the lounge is spacious with comfortable sofas, the kitchen is well equipped except for a dishwasher which for the cost of the booking I would have expected."

    There are two other grumbles, the main bedroom needs blackout curtains, the ones fitted are thin and at this time of year it is light in the bedroom from 5am. There are 2 velux type windows to the property, one at the top of the stairs and the second in the bedroom, however the apartment is next to an Italian restaurant and the extraction for the kitchen is designed so that it directs cooking smells along the valley between the two roofs, as a result you cannot have the veluxs open once they start cooking, regardless of how warm it is unless you want the whole upstairs to smell of garlic. This information is not provided until you get the joining instructions from the owners a week before your holiday and once you have paid.

The property

‘Old Village View’ is a Victorian first and second floor apartment set in the heart of Shanklin's historic Old Village, one of the prettiest and most photographed tourist destinations on the south-east coast of the Isle of Wight.

Situated above 'Cavanagh & Baker', the award winning Island made Emporium, this delightful recently refurbished holiday accommodation is set within close walking distance of a number of pubs, tea shops, restaurants, shops and Shanklin’s family and dog friendly parks, gardens and beaches.

Internally, the property has a real character feel to it, boasting Victorian features such as high ceilings, sash windows and an original (now ornamental) fireplace in the master bedroom.

On the first floor is a light and comfortable sitting room where you can sit and relax with family and friends, take advantage of entertainment choices on the Smart TV or enjoy one of the DVD’s, books or games provided.

The dining area, with extendable table, offers a pleasantly elevated position affording a unique view of the charming thatched pubs, tea-rooms and cottages for which the Old Village is so well known; perfect for a family meal or relaxing ‘people watch’ over a cup of coffee!

The fully equipped kitchen provides a selection of appliances for your convenience if you want to kick-back and relax with a home-cooked meal.

On the second floor are two bedrooms, including a king-size double and a twin, along with a contemporary bathroom with a bath and shower over to suit both adults and children alike.

If you prefer to eat out, there is a great choice of restaurants and pubs on the doorstep, or a pleasant stroll away is Shanklin’s esplanade which boasts a choice of eateries overlooking the sea.

There is a variety of coastal and countryside walks from the front door or further afield, cycle hire available on Shanklin esplanade and kayak and pedalo hire available on Shanklin’s sandy beach, making this apartment perfect for any outdoor enthusiast.

If you prefer to leave your car at home, the apartment is a short bus ride or 15-20 minute walk from Shanklin Train station which connects to the mainland via Ryde Pier Head (WightLink FastCat to Portsmouth Harbour).

Old Village View is a wonderful base to create memories and explore the Isle of Wight.

About the location

SHANKLIN

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.
