Stayed with my partner and his two brothers on a weekend in Shanklin. Very close to pubs, restaurants and shops, and a short walk down to the seafront. Lovely new house that can sleep 4 with everything you could need in the kitchen along with comfortable bedding & towels. Great location to get about the Island with buses and the Train station close if not driving. Would recommend anytime of year as always something to do on the Isle of Wight, with autumn/winter giving a different atmosphere.
