About the property

1 bed, sleeps 2, great location in the resort of Shanklin, near a golden beach

Fir is a generously proportioned apartment in Dove Court, which was originally a Victorian “gentleman’s residence” in the popular resort of Shanklin on the Isle of Wight. It has 1 bedroom and can comfortably accommodate 2 people plus a baby.

During 2017, the building was refurbished to a high standard to form five spacious holiday apartments. While retaining much of its external Victorian grandeur, the inside has been designed by an architect to form light and airy living spaces with a contemporary feel. Dove Court occupies a large corner plot and enjoys an open aspect in all directions, with views across to the sea, Downs and the seaside town of Shanklin.

Car: not necessary

The quaint pubs and restaurants of Shanklin Old Village are within a short walk, plus there are more places to relax over a drink or meal along Shanklin Seafront, and dotted along the revetment between Shanklin and Sandown.

Shanklin Chine is a beauty spot which has fascinated artists and authors through the ages. This picturesque Chine reaches from Shanklin Old Village out to the sandy beach and has a waterfall, luscious greenery and dramatic high trees.

There’s lots to do for families, including a visit to Rylstone Gardens for crazy golf, or head for the golden beaches at Shanklin and Sandown for a ‘bucket and spades’ holiday experience.
