Charming Victorian house, close (5 minutes gentle walk) to beaches and coastal paths - Isle of Wight

Welcome to the Isle of Wight: lovely beaches, fantastic countryside and quaint old villages!

Spacious Victorian house, in Shanklin village. We are a very short stroll (5 minutes) from the beaches in the photos above. Shanklin has beautiful beaches, sailing and watersports, country walks, Victorian tea gardens, and quaint thatched pubs. An ideal holiday spot for walkers, beach lovers, surfers, historians, and nature lovers. House is a easy walking distance form the train station, and there are good bus links to whole Island.

Our home is renovated in a cheerful mix of vintage and modern. Full of sunshine, character, books and art. We have a sitting/ TV room with log burner, study/ library, huge kitchen diner with another log burner, and a conservatory. Three good bedrooms, plus sofa beds if needed. Pretty garden with terrace , seating and barbeque.
