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.

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.
