Location

Within easy reach of the lodge are an abundance of footpaths, for walks through woodland and the surrounding countryside. Alternatively, hop on a bike and peddle along the 32 miles that make up the Red Squirrel cycle path, part of which follows the old steam railway line. A short drive takes you to the attractive seafront at Shanklin, which is often bustling with people gathering at one of the many restaurants or choosing a favoured spot for swimming and sunbathing along the extensive sandy beach. There's a variety of amusements to entertain all ages, including crazy golf, arcades and ice cream stalls. If you like exploring, then Shanklin Chine is a must, with its natural beauty surrounded by waterfalls, streams and rare plants. The entrance is situated within Shanklin Old Village amongst popular local restaurants, pubs and thatched cottages.

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 Tennysons 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.

Hosts, Annette and Brian were welcoming, friendly and went above and beyond. Amazing welcome pack with an added special touch of prosecco and flowers as it was our honeymoon. The Lodge is a beautiful one bedroomed house, very clean, well equipped and a definite home from home. The living spaces are bright and airy, and uncluttered.The only thing we felt we could have done with was a pair of kitchen scissors, but that's a small thing, and we managed! Loved staying there and highly recommend it. Poppet, our dog, settled in very well, and loved her little enclosed garden! Be aware that pets are not allowed upstairs. They are allowed on the furniture but you have to take your own covers or throws to accommodate that. The welcome pack was thorough and very useful, and came in very handy as I was very unwell while we were there, and had to see a doctor.

We had the most wonderful holiday. We had to change the times on the Wight link ferry, they could not be any more helpful fabulous service and very friendly. The cottage was beautifully clean a great location and had everything you could possibly need, and a really lovely welcome pack. The Isle of Wight weather was kind to us and brought back some wonderful memories of childhood. Thank you.
