Clarendon House is a spacious five bedroom house, situated within Shanklin, just a short walk from Shanklin Bay and the sandy beach.

Internally, the property is furnished to a high standard throughout, complimented by features such as an en-suite master bedroom, high-spec appliances and wireless internet access. Externally, the furnished rear garden with built-in barbecue provides a perfect place to relax after a long day exploring the island.

Clarendon House was built in 1828 with its name deriving from the Clarendon ship wreck, a ship that sunk at the coastal ravine called Blackgang Chine. The reason for the naming of Clarendon House is due to the wood work internally on the landing being made from the wreckage of the ship.

The property is located in the quaint Shanklin Old Village, an area within Shanklin, famed for its good weather and sandy beach. The area contains some of the oldest dwellings with the majority of them thatched. It is on a slightly lower level than the town of Shanklin and is famous for its small gift shops and tea rooms. The seafront is the focal point of the town with a wealth of good Restaurants, Bistro's, Cafe's and Pubs all providing a wide and varied choice of food and drink to cater for all tastes. In the summer months a small road train provides a service to the town centre and Old Village. Steephill Cove, Monks Bay and Devils Chimney are local, famous tourist attractions which are within easy reach from the property.

The nearby Luccombe Chine, a wooded coastal ravine, serves as a geological and visitor attraction just south of the village of Luccombe. The house has direct access to miles of country walks and a coastal path running between the villages of Shanklin and Ventnor, perfect for long days exploring the vast countryside. The coastal path also provides access to Bonchurch, Shanklin and Ventnor Beaches.
