The Isle of Wight region
The Isle of Wight is steeped in history. It was one of Queen Victoria favourite places to visit, that it why she had a residence constructed (Osborne House). The Island generally has the highest sunshine hours of the UK and it's beaches are some of the finest, Shanklin has "Blue Flag" status and voted one of the best in England. The Island is also very well serviced with high standard taverns and restaurants serving a variety of cuisine. The Island has many attractions for all ages and is equally well know as part fo the Durasic Coast with fosils of dinosaurs found on many beaches.
Activities available are walking, cycling, sailing, golf, fishing (sea course and game), horse-riding and bird watching. Attractions such as The Needles, Black Gang Chine, Amazon Zoo Park, Sandown Zoo, Donkey Sanctury, Godshill Thatched Village, Caribrooke Castle and Osbourne House. Locally the Old Village in Shanklin winds between traditional thatched cottages, cream-tea rooms, shops charming gardens and parks. The taverns serve an excellent range of home cooked food they also have entertainment most evenings. Explore the Shanklin Chine which is part of our national heritage and the Island's first tourist attraction, this scenic gorge in sandstone cliffs with waterfalls and streams leads down to the beach. It was once a smugglers haunt and now looks fabulous illuminated after dark. There is an exhibition hall in the chine where you can learn of the PLUTO pipe line under the ocean which carried fuel to the Allied troops in Normandy. At the top of the cliff there's the busy High Street and Regent Street with a variety of shops, tea rooms and restaurants.

Many thanks to Tony & Margaret for this review. As to the lounge sofa being too cosy? There are two comfy chairs in the bedroom that can be used if necessary. We try to accommodate all situations.

We are pleased to be considered as good hosts. It is you who are important to us as good clients. Yes plans are being drawn up to improve the apartment as it will now be only available to couples we have more room to make it cosy. Also giving thoughts to the sun deck area.

If there is such a thing as a perfect place for a holiday this could be it. All you need for a self catering holiday but if you were to request a further need I am sure Brian would fulfil your request… More
We have received such warm and positive reviews to our holiday apartment it makes it all worth while. We enjoy having guest such as Ken and Avril who enter into the holiday spirit by talking and telling us of their experiences with previous holidays. This helps us with presenting the apartment for other guests. If we know what is required we can act accordingly. We are so pleased to give holiday makers a time to relax and enjoy the Island.

"Great place to stay."
What an ideal place to stay situated right in the old village in Shanklin. Easy walk into town and bus stops that take you anywhere on the island and walking distance to the lovely beach. The apartment was lovely with all the items we could possible need (we did not need to take anything with us as all was supplied). Linda and Brian were the perfect hosts and made us very welcome even to the extent of lending one of their own items for us to use. We enjoyed it so much we have already booked three weeks in 2014.
This review means alot to us many thanks Sandra & Tony.

"Try it, you will not be disappointed."
Spotlessly clean and the best equipped I have stayed in. Really comfy bed and nice and quiet. Very close to all amenities. Brian and Linda are really nice and they have thought of everything a holidaymaker might need. If the week after ours had not been booked we would have stayed a third week! On leaving I booked for next year I enjoyed it that much.
We are so pleased to get such positive reviews. Next years bookings are coming in, we have had one couple who are due next week who have booked already for next year before they have enjoyed this year! We are making further changes that will improve the clients stay. Thank you Michael & Jean for coming and your kind review.
