  • A spacious family holiday property with a large garden and lovely views
  • Ideally situated near the cliff top in the beautiful coastal town of Shanklin
  • Just a short walk from a glorious golden sandy beach and the old village
Property code: IC068

Offering lovely sea views, this spacious and detached family holiday home is perfectly positioned, just a short walk from the glorious sandy beach in the charming seaside town of Shanklin.

This quintessentially charming island offers an excellent combination of picturesque beaches, sweeping countryside and a whole host of fascinating towns and villages brimming with history and gastronomic finds. Shanklin is a true Isle of Wight gem boasting its own sandy beach and iconic bay, whilst the old town itself is awash with thatched cottages and is home to the majestic chine. Set back from the esplanade, this comfortable accommodation sleeps eight guests and is ideally suited to families and large groups.

Spacious yet cosy, this holiday home has ample parking and oodles of outside space for enjoying al fresco meals in the summer sunshine. After a day of adventuring, you’ll want to kick off your sandy shoes and settle down with a well-earned treat in the open-plan lounge/diner. The large dining table is ideally positioned to take in the views of passing boats over a meal, and the lounge area has lots to entertain your entire party thanks to the TV, DVD and PlayStation. Sizzle up a breakfast fit for a king in the kitchen and dine at leisure on the outside terrace, and of an evening swap the coffee for chilled wine and try a spot of stargazing. You’ll have a choice of sleeping quarters and washing facilities including a handy en-suite room in the downstairs annexe and three bedrooms on the first floor, one of which is equipped with an en-suite whilst the remaining ones share the generous family bathroom.

Shanklin Chine is a sight to behold within 0.5 miles, so grab your camera and make your way through the woodland to reach this enchanting gorge with its cascading waterfall. At night it becomes a mystical wonderland with stunning lights and illuminations. Further along the coast is the Victorian coastal town of Ventnor 4.5 miles away, a treasure trove of antique shops, eateries and a famous pub directly on the beach.

Lovely venue. Close to the beach. Spacious rooms with plenty to occupy children - books, pens paints, board games and garden toys. Comfortable beds. With three generations to cater for, the annexe was great for a little quiet time. The grandchildren had a wonderful time and appreciated the size of the garden. Somewhere to revisit in the future.
