From the golden sands of Shanklin Beach to the beautiful chine and cliff path, there’s lots to love about Shanklin.
This pretty cottage gives up to five guests a great base to see the best of it.
This pretty cottage puts you in the box seat to take in the best of Shanklin. It’s just a short stroll to the historic village centre, with its thatched cottages, traditional shops and welcoming pubs and cafes. The sandy beach is a short walk away and ideal for paddling and swimming. Or take in the coastal sights from the cliff path for beautiful views across Sandown Bay to the white cliffs of Culver. The beautiful Shanklin Chine – floodlit in the evening – serves up more camera fodder for photography fans. And if you’re bringing the car, you can visit both the Isle of Wight Zoo and Shanklin & Sandown Golf Club within a short drive.
As for the cottage itself, it has all you need for a cosy stay. The entrance takes you straight into the hallway. Walk through into the spacious lounge and you’ll be greeted by comfortable sofas for gathering around the TV/DVD. Head through to the well-equipped kitchen to rustle up something tasty. You’ll find an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge and dishwasher plus a breakfast area. Adjoining the kitchen is a utility area with a washing machine and freezer as well as a cloakroom with WC. Also on the ground floor is a beautiful dining area with lots of natural light overlooking the garden. A set of stairs leads up to two attractive bedrooms – one double and one twin (an extra bed can be added for a small cost to the double bedroom by request). There’s also a bathroom with a bath, separate shower and W.C.
The cottage has a beautiful garden, fenced and gated at the front, which catches the evening sun as it sets over the downs. It’s a wonderful space for al fresco dining – and you’ll find garden furniture as well as a barbecue to help you do just that. The garden also has two sun loungers and a washing line with pegs provided. As for parking, there’s space for one car in the driveway. Additional vehicles can be parked in the quiet roads nearby.
