Property code: IC155

Exquisite cottage enjoying desirable beach-front position on Shanklin’s promenade. Boasting two terraces with breath-taking sea views, this is an idyllic island escape.

This superb cottage dating back to 1880 features dazzling sea views from all main rooms. Located in a quiet and attractive part of town, at the end of a no-through road without passing traffic, the accommodation is artfully decorated and arranged over three floors. Close to popular Shanklin, with its pretty thatched cottages, public houses, restaurants, small shops, nearby theatre, and wonderfully sandy beach. Choose to walk to town via the nearby steps that ascend to the cliff top, or via the natural wooded gorge of Shanklin Chine. A short walk along the beach there is a quiet public house serving meals, and further along the promenade is a choice of restaurants overlooking the sea, plus classic seaside entertainments such as crazy golf and slot machines.

Entering the cottage on the ground floor there is an open-plan kitchen with a range cooker, gas hob and electric oven, microwave and dishwasher; an adjoining utility area features a large fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. There’s a lovely dining area with table and chairs beside the windows overlooking the sea. Double doors can be opened from here to a small balcony where guests can admire the view. There are comfortable chairs here creating a lovely social space when meals are being prepared. Stairs lead up to the first floor where there is a delightful living area with comfortable seating and a TV/DVD. This room has large windows along one wall which overlook the sea, as well as French doors opening onto a wonderful terrace with garden furniture and BBQ. Here, meals can be enjoyed whilst soaking up the incredible sea views which extend across the bay to Culver Cliffs. Steps lead up from the terrace to higher ground so that further views can be enjoyed. On the second floor there are two bedrooms, both with sea views. The first room has zip-and-link twin beds, which can be made up as a king-size upon request (please advise at time of booking) ,and an en-suite bathroom with shower over a bath and a WC. The second is a small double bedroom also including an en-suite bathroom with shower over the bath and a WC. There is a separate cloakroom on this floor. A further flight of stairs leads up to the delightful master bedroom with a super-king-size bed, comfortable seating, stunning sea views and an en-suite bathroom with corner bath, built-in shower and WC. Double doors open onto an inviting private terrace with reclining garden furniture and a swing seat. While-away many an hour relaxing in the sunshine, watching the boats sailing across the ocean.

Outside are the two roof terraces with superb sea views, garden furniture and BBQ. Roadside parking is available outside the cottage from the end of October through to the beginning of March. Other times of year cars can stop outside the cottage to unload and then park on one of the roads above the cottage on the cliff top, only a short walk away.

Good accommodation, ideal position for the beach, plenty of space, but parking is a non starter. You have to find a spare space up the hill behind the cottage, however, everybody else wants to park there also.

This is our second visit. Great views. Beautifully clean. Owners have thought of everything just like a home from home but right on the beach. Weekly parking permit is definitely recommended. Quiet position. Perfect for all sorts of family combinations.
