Great location

We present a Victorian seaside villa in a quiet road within walking distance of beaches, restaurants & shops also close to cycle paths and walks. We have three cheerful labradors who like company & we all benefit from the space and comfort this house provides. There's space to relax quietly if you want to but company around for information or a chat when you need it. And of course a garden for that healthy fresh air. If you prefer the double bed split into 2 singles please confirm by message.

The space
We have lived in this house for 21 years and nursed it back to health - it was semi-derelict - at the same time as bringing up our children. It was built in about 1860 and shows some scars of it's varied history, but we love it and restored it to make a wonderful family home. We have a shared lounge with TV; also a shared dining room/quiet room.We live on the premises and have adult children who visit from time to time, we love visitors. We do expect smokers to smoke outside - and all are welcome to enjoy the enclosed back garden at any time.

Guest access
You will have access to the main house we share, we respect each other's privacy and try to minimise noise after 10pm - our dogs bed-time. We would be grateful if our guests could try to be in by midnight as some of the family have to be at work before 9am. There is space reserved in the cupboards and fridge-freezer for guests to use if they wish along with shared use of the kitchen for cooking. We will show you where cutlery, crockery and everything is stored. We mostly eat at the kitchen table but there is a very grand dining room for anyone who wants to try a bit of Victorian style!

Location

Isle of Wight, England, United Kingdom

Shanklin is a small town in the south-east corner of the Isle of Wight with charming attractions, walks and views plus plenty of good places to eat. It appeals to all ages in search of gentler adventures, activities, beaches and family fun, and is a good base for exploring the south & east of the Island. For those who want some more excitement there is a local watersports centre offering a wide range of facilities including surf boards, surf skis, wind-surfers, canoes, paddle-boards all with tuition. There is also kite-surfing and of course a range of conventional sailing dinghies, catamarans, jet-skis and for a bit of quiet escape, fishing from the shore and from boats too. Not forgetting horse-riding and a host of other on-shore past-times too.
