Accessed from a communal entrance, entry to the apartment is on the ground floor where you will find the kitchen and living areas, the two bedrooms are located on the lower ground floor.

With large comfortable sofas in the living area and a wall-mounted Smart television, it is a perfect spot to enjoy a film and a glass of wine at the end of a day at the beach.

Location

Old Shanklin town is within a 10 minute walk, with various pubs and restaurants and Shanklin Theatre, Also there's Shanklin Chine with waterfalls streams and rare plants.

The main town can be reached in fifteen minutes and offers a multitude of shops cafes, bars and restaurants to entertain all ages and tastes. It is well served by public transport with regular bus services to reach all parts of the Island and the railway 'Island Line' to Sandown and Ryde.

The extensive sandy beach at Shanklin is a 15 minute walk away and there is a lift during the main season. There's a variety of amusements, including crazy golf, arcades and ice cream stalls.

Within easy reach of the apartment are an abundance of footpaths, for walks through woodland and the surrounding countryside. Alternatively, hop on a bike from the local bike hire and peddle along the 32 miles that make up the Red Squirrel cycle path, part of which follows the old steam railway line.


Over half this beautiful island is protected as an Area of Outstanding Nature Beauty, so why not take a day to explore some of the stunning scenery by driving along the Military Road. Travel west from Shanklin, through Ventnor, a coastal town that clings to the cliff side and was famously the preferred holiday destination for aspiring Victorians; perhaps stopping on route to get lost in the peaceful Ventnor Botanic Gardens. The final destination being Freshwater Bay, with its sparkly, clear water and breath-taking views from the cliff top walks. Park in the Bay and walk up to Tennyson's monument and to really blow the cobwebs out, continue to the most western point of the island and the landmark Needles. The birds eye view is worth the hike and refreshments are on hand at the Old Battery, which was the Victorian coastal defence and secret rocket testing site, perched above The Needles. Dropping down the other side of the Tennyson down, Alum Bay comes into view. The twenty-one different coloured sands create a distinctive backdrop for the shingle beach. For those with a head for heights, take the chairlift up and down to the beach, to see The Needles from a difference perspective.

Out of the many other island attractions, why not follow in the footsteps of Queen Victoria and visit her favourite summer residence. Osborne House and gardens was designed in the style of an Italian Renaissance palazzo by the Queen’s beloved husband Prince Albert. In contrast, a day spent at Blackgang Chine will ensure you a rather different Victorian experience; having opened in 1843, it remains the oldest themed attraction in the UK.
