Clarence House Shanklin - Rated 9.6 by recent guests
Hi - my name is Rosamund (or Ros) and I am new to the island - but not to hosting. We have been hosting holiday apartments for over 10 years in London, until we visited the Isle of Wight recently, fell in love and a new venture was born! Clarence House was the second house viewed, after which no more houses were necessary....it was featured on the BBC's Escape to the Country as a dream home on the Isle of Wight and we feel so privileged to be its new owners. As seasoned travellers we understand the importance of arriving to a spotless apartment, fresh crisp sheets and a hot shower, not to mention reliable wifi. Rosamund tried out the apartments as a paying guest first, to see how her potential guests would feel waking up in them.
The beautiful Isle of Wight and Shanklin
Our location is perfect for the outdoor lover, brilliant cycling and running routes, with spectacular coastal walks for ramblers or casual strolls. Visit Shanklin Chine and the beautiful Old Shanklin village including their fantastic safe and sandy beaches.
There are fascinating independent coffee shops, antique and curio places to explore, the independent Shanklin theatre and many nearby villages to explore each with their own character. Easy access to quirky Ventnor, the Needles, Cowes, Blankgang Chine and the island's capital Newport.
Shanklin station is only 4 minutes walk away from Clarence House and has fantastic connections to Portsmouth, Waterloo and Victoria. Visiting the island without a car is quicker and there are numerous buses across the island, while Shanklin is a seaside town you can walk around
