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.

    “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 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.

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.
