The Coach House formed part of the original coach house and stable block to Upper Chine House, later converted to the dining rooms and kitchen as part of Upper Chine Girls School, before evolving again into holiday accommodation in the 1990s.

The Coach House provides comfortable and spacious accommodation for up to 6 (+1) guests, comprising the main bedroom with a King size bed with ensuite plumbed-in shower, a further double Bedroom, and a Bunk room. The beds benefit from superior mattresses and feather duvets and mattress toppers and quality pillows to provide a luxurious night. All bedrooms benefit from large built-in storage. Hair driers and coat hangers are provided in each room.

On the ground floor is a Family Bathroom, a delightful Sitting Room and a well equipped Kitchen you could easily cook a roast dinner with all the trimmings with all the cookware & bake ware that is provided. There is also a Conservatory giving access to a patio garden overlooking Shanklin Chine. The whole cottage is warmed by gas fired central heating.

We provide you with everything you need to live away from home bed linen & towels, basic toiletries, and an ample stock of kitchen essentials including washing up liquid, washing powder, dishwasher tablets, kitchen roll, foil, cling film etc.

There is a well-stocked bookcase of novels and biographies, together with a selection of DVDs and board games. We also have buckets & spades, beach cricket set, wind-breaker, etc. The TV has Freesat, and a DVD player.

We welcome well behaved dogs (2 max) for an additional pet fee of 25 for the duration of your stay, and provide dog blankets, feed bowls & some noisy toys!

For the little tykes there is a retractable gate at the top and bottom of the stairs, a travel cot and a high chair.

The Coach House is a stone's throw from Shanklin Old Village packed with charming thatched cottages with its wonderful unique gift shops and tea rooms/gardens and the top entrance to Shanklin Chine - a wonderful gorge with rare plants and waterfalls. There is also a good choice of pubs and restaurants offering a variety of cuisines. The High Street and shops is a short stroll beyond the Old Village.

Shanklin really is the most charming of traditional seaside resorts with its glorious long wide sandy beach set against a backdrop of dramatic sandstone cliffs, and only 10 minutes from The Coach House. Relax and unwind on the golden sands, hire a traditional beach hut or, for the more energetic, try the water sports on offer. Shanklin's Esplanade, lined with traditional seaside games, amusements, cafes, restaurants and pubs, is the perfect place to while away your day.

Shanklin offers a lovely mix of the seaside and open, green space with some fantastic parks and gardens around the town. Directly opposite The Coach House is Big Meade - a large expanse of open parkland. Within the park there is a recreation area for children and a thriving duck pond. Very nearby is access to many miles of lovely footpaths and cycle paths over the delightful countryside and Download that surround Shanklin. The bus service on the Island is good, and the stop is 50m from the cottage.

Just around the corner, Rylstone Gardens provide the most tranquil and beautiful spot to sit and soak up the sunshine, with an extensive programme of summer events at the Bandstand located in the Gardens.

Whatever your holiday plans, Shanklin has a lot to offer and The Coach House is ideally suited to access all local attractions.

Changeover day is a Saturday during July & August, and flexible at all other times. Short breaks are available out of season.

The Coach House also has the added benefit of having free fast WiFi, that can be enjoyed around the whole property.
