Our home is a detached house, with an emphasis on natural wood creating a pleasant warm ambiance.There is a fairly large flower filled, south facing, all season garden, with swings and benches for each compass point. We are ,10 minutes walk from the beach and one minute from the cliff path linking Sandown and Shanklin, with its beautiful views over the Bay
We have two guest rooms upstairs; one with a double bed and the other with a double and a single. We can change the single bed for a cot if required. For larger families, downstairs there is an extension to the side of the house used as a playroom with musical instruments and a table tennis table, but also containing a convertible settee to sleep two more
In the garage is a small gym with treadmill, bike, rowing machine, weights and bench plus two adult and one young childs bikes. There are a number of toys for younger children, various beach items plus a large box of Lego
Situated on an island off the south coast of England, Shanklin regularly records the highest annual sunshine levels for the UK. Famous for it's popular sandy beaches and host of tourist attractions, the island is also a paradise for both walkers and cyclists with more footpaths per acre and more Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty then probably any other part of England, plus miles of cycle tracks and quiet country lanes.
We are just 3 hours door to door from London Waterloo via direct train to Portsmouth Harbour, with connecting ferry and local shuttle train to Shanklin. The most convenient airport for the Island is Gatwick, with its regular direct train link to Portsmouth Harbour
We are particularly looking for one week exchanges in Europe, by the sea or in historic cities, but are open to offers from anywhere of scenic or historical interest. As we no longer drive we can only consider locations with good local transport
