    “Kiely Cottage is a superb base to explore Shanklin, Ventnor & the rest of the beautiful Isle of Wight.”

    It is a very short walk to Shanklin Old Village & 10 mins max down to the beach. The cottage is really well equipped & comfortable enough to enjoy a week away for 3 adults. We stayed in this cottage last September & re-booked as we had such a fab time. We normally go away with our little dog, but this time she wasn't well enough to come with us. Last time, the cottage was in superb condition - spotlessly clean & no issues at all. This time, it wasn't as amazing - there was dog poo in the garden that we had to pick up (though that is the owners responsibility, not the cottage managers). The shower had been noted by previous occupants as spraying water everywhere, we were disappointed it hadn't been fixed (and the water really did go everywhere!). It was obvious that the condition of the (easily replaced) shower head was rubbish & you could see where the water damage was affecting the ceiling..... The parking was a pain - last time, no issues, this time, we couldn't unload on the road in front of the cottage & had to trail all our luggage / food etc from the car park. To be fair, it's not far away, but the hill is steep & the road busy to cross with handfuls of stuff! We noted that the owner advised a parking permit - when we have stayed at other cottages on the IOW, a permit has usually been included in the price. I would be happy to pay £50 a week extra & have a permit provided......especially as when my hubby rang the number to get a permit, they tried to charge him daily not weekly! We eventually gave up & parked at the station for £7.50 a week & a bit of exercise. There is parking on the street, but the neighbours park there & I can imagine they really don't love having holiday guests taking up the very limited spaces. All in all, we had a fantastic time - but i'm not sure we would book again.

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.
