Excellent location and great sized property. Very well equipped. Close to beach and shops. Weve stayed here twice now and enjoyed our relaxing breaks.

Lovely space in the house for the 4 of us, and the property is in a great location for shanklin old town, the chine, and seafront. However, cars seem to ignore the double yellow lines and gate at the front of the property, as we were blocked in on 2 separate days of our holiday !

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.
