Lots to do on the charming Isle of Wight, with lovely beaches,fantastic countryside and quaint old villages!

Nice old Victorian house, in lovely Shanklin, on the stunning Isle of Wight. Very close (4 mins gentle walk, so 200 yards?)to the bay views in the photos above.

An ideal holiday spot for walkers, surfers, historians, nature lovers and children of all ages. House is a short walk from train station, and there are good bus links to whole Island.

mix of vintage and modern . Space, character, books and art: we have two sitting rooms with log burner, study/ library, huge kitchen diner with another log burner, and conservatory. Three good bedrooms, plus sofa beds if needed. Pretty garden with terrace , seating and barbeque.
