“Modern, clean, walking distance to Shanklin, lovely home :-)”
Reviewed 8 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Just wanted to say what a lovely holiday we had at the retreat. I stayed with my husband, mum and dad, three sisters, my sisters fiancé, and our little baby - unfortunately we only had a couple of days of nice weather but the house was great so we didn't get cabin fever. We each had our own bathroom with amazing showers and there was lots of board games to keep us entertained. There was also enough room for us to all sit around the big television watching DVDs and have family meals at the table in the evening. There is enough seating in the garden for eight people so we enjoyed spending one sunny evening chatting there. The house is within walking distance to all the shops and pubs in Shanklin - we had a great meal at the Crab on our first night and also enjoyed a meal at Pavarotti’s Italian restauarant. I recommend a walk along the coast to Sandown - it is a few miles there and back but it is definitely worth it. We also visited the chilli farm, the Spyglass (wonderful seafood), and Godshill (where there was a sausage and cider festival). The house was lovely and warm, with a well equipped kitchen and I would definitely recommend it to large families travelling to Shanklin.
