Perfectly positioned this delightful cosy 16th-century stone built cottage is on the outskirts of the seaside town of Shanklin. The town, beaches and Shanklin Old Village are only a short drive away. The property is dog friendly and surrounded by ancient woodland with plenty of nature walks in every direction.
Apse Castle Cottage can accommodate up to 5 guests and has been completely refurbished in 2021. It is furnished throughout to a very high standard. There are exposed wooden floors, a stunning inglenook fireplace with wood burner and charming features such as exposed beams to the living room ceiling. The cottage style kitchen is well-equipped and features a Belfast sink and quarry tiled floor. Upstairs are 3 lovely presented bedrooms, 1 double, 1 twin and 1 single. The lovely enclosed courtyard offers an outside dining area with a driveway to the front with parking.
Shanklin is 1¼ miles away and there is a bus stop within a short walk. You really can escape and relax in its beautiful surroundings enjoying a tipple or morning coffee in the delightful stone courtyard garden. Shanklin has an abundance of shops, supermarkets, cafés and restaurants, all just a short distance away. The ‘Old Village’, which as the name suggests, is the oldest part of the town, and is a pleasure to explore with its pretty thatched buildings and quirky gift shops. The beach is really popular with families and is the ideal place to sample some fresh seafood or an Isle of Wight cream tea! The surrounding cliff paths are excellent for gentle strolls or bike rides and the views of the bay are stunning. There are numerous attractions across the island to discover for all ages, including The Needles with its chairlift, amusement park, boat rides, lighthouse and coloured sands of Alum Bay. Visit Queen Victoria’s favourite holiday residence, Osborne House and its gardens, Blackgang Chine, the oldest themed attraction in the UK, Ventnor Botanic Garden, Tapnell Farm Park, Carisbrooke Castle or the sailing towns of Yarmouth and Cowes. No visit to Shanklin would be complete without a walk down to the beach through Shanklin Chine, a deep wooded gorge with waterfalls. Beach 2 miles.
