Lovely cottage, perfectly sized for 3 adults and a dog, cosy & with lots of character, nicely furnished.

To describe this as a Shanklin cottage with easy access to the beach etc is stretching credibility a bit far. No where is accessible without a car. There is nothing within walking distance,and the nearest bus stop is a 10 min walk up hill with no pavement. The cottage is adequate,but in need of some TLC and up dating inside.

Quiet location. Nice enough house - comfortable.
