Visit Britain 4 Stars Guest House

We are located in the heart of Shanklin Old Village, just a short stroll away from the picturesque ‘olde worlde’ thatched buildings including the famous Crab Inn, tea rooms, restaurants and gift shops.

Just a few minutes more and you will reach the Shanklin Chine and Rylstone Gardens where you will see red squirrels and can enjoy summer open air concerts, before reaching the award winning Shanklin beach.

Shanklin Theatre is also very close and offers a variety of shows through the summer.

We pride ourselves on the cleanliness and comfort of our guest house and the service we offer and this is reflected in our enjoyEngland Four Star rating and Silver Award for Excellence.
