We have a licenced bar, guest lounge and parking for our guests. The coastal resort of Shanklin is located at the south east corner of the Island at the southern most tip of Sandown Bay. The town is well served by the railway, which connects to the high speed ferry terminal at the top of Ryde Pier, allowing easy access to the mainland and London.
Shanklin has long been a location for family holidays, with a safe sandy beach and clear waters. The bay is sheltered from the prevailing wind by Dunnose Point, which is a stunning backdrop, with the tall cliffs of Luccombe and St Boniface Downs beyond. Looking out to The English Channel across the bay, views extend around to the White Cliffs of Culver and Bembridge Downs.
By the beach there is pitch and putt, children?s amusements and car parking. A lift provides easy access to the cliff tops, where the views are even more spectacular, so the less energetic or disabled people don?t have to climb the steps. The seafront is a real attraction for visitors to the town with a wealth of eating establishments, 3 pubs and a small road train which provides a regular service through the summer months to the town centre and Old Village.
Shanklin is most famed for its good weather and the pretty Old Village, which is located on the south side of the town, towards Ventnor and Bonchurch. The village is extremely pretty and most tourists head to the area for the thatched cottages, quaint shops and old fashioned tea rooms, which not only offer cream teas, but sea food specialities and attractive surroundings.
