We have beautiful sea views across Sandown Bay and Culver Cliff. Our lovely garden is for guest use- after breakfast on a warm day why not take your tea or coffee out onto the patio where you can plan your day. Check-in on arrival day is from 2pm to 8pm, as a home offering bed & breakfast we not not have a 24 hour reception; later check-in may be available strictly by prior arrangement with the owners but is subject to extra charge. Check out on day of departure is by 10am. For foot passengers, luggage may be stored outside of check-in and check-out times by prior arrangement, and we are able to store cycles if required.
We offer a warm hospitality, comfortable beds and a good breakfast to start your day. For that special occasion we can arrange flowers, chocolates and cake or book a restaurant for you prior to your arrival.
At the bottom of our garden the coastal path offers beautiful walks between Shanklin and Sandown and steps nearby will lead you to Shanklin’s beautiful sandy beaches below. The bay is sheltered and offers safe bathing plus a variety of water sports such as canoeing, sailing and surfing. Walking to Shanklin you will discover The Esplanade, Fisherman’s Cottage, Shanklin Chine and the picturesque thatched Old Village; Sandown is in the opposite direction with its Pier jutting out into the Bay and stunning Culver Cliff in the background. When looking for somewhere to eat and drink you will be spoilt for choice in both Shanklin and Sandown with a range of tea rooms, cafes, pubs, bistros, bars and restaurants. Public transport is easy to use with a good regular bus service on the Island and nearby bus stops, plus Island Line Train service with local the local station about 15 minutes walk away.
