The property enjoys views of the island’s picturesque countryside during the day, and at night, the pretty lights glisten across the water and over the town below.

Luccombe is a tranquil area, with a nearby church and duck pond, just a 10-minute stroll from Old Shanklin. With its thatched-roof pubs, restaurants, gift shops and cafes, this charming village is a must, and the beach is just 5 minutes further on foot. Discover the island’s historic buildings, vineyards, tea rooms or National Trust-owned properties such as Osborne House and Ventnor Botanical Gardens. The Needles are usually top of the agenda for visitors to the island, and for a most scenic walk beside tumbling waterfalls, head to Shanklin Chine. The coast is scattered with secluded bays and coves – a perfect backdrop for beachcombing. For more active explorers, there’s also cycling, horse-riding and sailing. There are various viewpoints around the island to take in the island’s stunning terrain, and for less intrepid visitors, give golf, fishing or birdwatching a go. Shop, pub and restaurant 1/2 mile.
