About Peter & Mandy Daley
We have owned Clematis Cottage for seven years. We are both lucky enough to have be brought up on the Isle of Wight. We chose Clematis Cottage for its great location, close to the beach, the old Village, parks and countryside, perfect for our family. We have three children, one boy and two girls , they all love Shanklin and the beach and can't wait to stay in the cottage. Being a close family all hands are on deck, our mums are a great help, we have lovely housekeepers and their families who also help, and a very willing gardener, Jamie, who turns his hands to almost anything. Knowing how much families have to take with them on holiday we have tried to think of everything so that all that needs to be had is a good time! We really hope you love the cottage and The Isle of Wight as much as we do.
Peter & Mandy Daley purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Peter & Mandy Daley chose Shanklin
We already owned honeysuckle and Jasmine cottages and were finding it hard to book a week for ourselves, Clematis became available, it didn't take much thinking about! we love Shanklin and the old village, the cottages are in a great location, plenty to do near by and an equal distance from both of our families, it has proved to be the right decision for us.
What makes this Cottage unique
The garden and play area seem to be a real favorite with the children and so in turn their parents. Many guests make great friends with our other guests and return year after year. In the evenings its lovely to be able to walk into the old Village for a meal, and so close that the children don't complain! The beach also is near by, not having to find a parking space makes it much easier, although it is up hill on the way back.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Excellent stay at Clematis cottage!
We had a fantastic stay at Clematis cottage. The location was brilliant, a 10 minute walk into Shanklin. The cottage is very child friendly and has a lovely garden. Peter and Mandy were so helpful and left an Easter Egg for each of our sons which was such a lovely touch. We will definitely be coming back!
We were very impressed with the property and location. The owner’s direction to the property and the maps of the locality were the best we have received from our numerous holiday property visits.
We really enjoyed the walking from the property. Locally there are plenty of places to walk, a substantial number of miles can be covered from the property without the need to travel. The surrounding area in parts is hilly which my be an issue for some but there is plenty of parking down by the sea front for those that either can’t or don’t like walking.
Within 10 minutes walk, maximum, of the property their are numerous pubs, plenty of places to eat and the main town.
Perfect child friendly cottage close to beach
This was our first family holiday to Clematis cottage and it didn't disappoint. The cottage was perfectly equipped for our 18 month old son and was extremely clean. The cottage is within easy walking distance to the beach (either via steps or path) and there's a kids playground nearby too. We found the cottage to be very peaceful which is also a bonus when travelling away with children. We can highly recommend this as a perfect place to stay when looking for accommodation on the beautiful Isle of Wight
Lovely house, great location
This was our third stay at Clematis cottage and definitely won't be the last. The cottage is very spacious and as ever spotlessly clean. Within easy walking distance of the old village and beach (though on this occasion we drove as it was Winter!) Good WiFi as well.
A beautifully kept property in Shanklin village
This was a lovely cottage at a peaceful and scenic end of Shanklin. The owners really put time and effort in to creating a lovely environment and we would happily recommend Chestnut Mews to anyone. Thank you Peter and Mandy.
Fantastic ... Cant Wait to stay again
All I can say is Fantastic... From Start to Finish Peter and Mandy where very helpful answering questions etc before we booked. The booking process was very straight forward, and Peter and Mandy send us lots of local information regarding the local shops the week before travel
Our Stay at Clematis Cottage was perfect. The house has its own garden with lots outside toys and even its own playhouse. The house itself is very well equipped and has all things covered and the welcome pack and bottle of Bubbly was a lovely touch. The rooms are all very comfy and the kids even slept pass 6.30 which is a bonus on holiday.
The location is lovely too up a quiet private road but only 5-10 min walk in to the main high street with lots of little shops, cafes and Pubs. The Chine is only 10mins down the road, which is lovely if you go in the evening as its all lit up. Also along the road is the steps to the beach ( can be hard work with little ones as there is a lots to go down)
The location was fantastic to get to all the major Attractions on the island and is great base. We are hoping to return
Shanklin’s Beach, is approximately a ten minute walk from Clematis Cottage. The sandy beaches at Shanklin, perfect for sandcastles, hold the seaside award, for its clean waters and facilities. The Old Village with its thatched cottages, Tea rooms and gift shops are less than a 5 minute walk, and a welcome stop for an ice cream or cold beer on the way back from the beach. Big Mead park, the entrance to Shanklin Chine and Rylstone gardens are also less than 5 minutes away. The seaside town of Shanklin is a 10-15 minute walk with all the amenities you would expect, Bank, supermarkets, Chemist and local theater which our children love, especially the pantomime at Christmas !
