Black Pan Holiday Cottage is a beautifully presented ground floor apartment, with its own enclosed rear garden, that adjoins the owners home and is accessed by a bridle path. It is clear a lot of time and effort has been put into the creation of this delightful holiday home. The layout has been extremely well thought out with an innovative space saving premium design kitchen installed and an open plan living/dining/kitchen with Wi-Fi. There is a lovely spacious shower room with monsoon shower, his and hers wash basins, a large double bedroom with a top of the range mattress added for a great night’s sleep, and a useful dressing table/writing desk to write all those postcards. The owner has a background of working with animals and has ensured that the property is also more than dog friendly, making it the perfect base to explore all that the south east side of the Isle of Wight has to offer with your four-legged friends. The rear garden has a lockable gate, outside tap for the cyclists amongst you.

The apartment is located in Lake, which is situated between the popular seaside towns of Sandown and Shanklin. The nearest beach at Lake is moments from the property and shares the same gently sloping golden sands and clear swimming waters of its neighbours. At the rear of the beach, the cliff rises steeply creating a dramatic looking natural screen and shelter for the beach at the foot of which runs the sea wall, path and cycleway. The beach can be accessed from a set of steps from the top of the cliff path which is close to Lake’s Island-line train station. Because this beach is tucked away and not as straightforward to reach as its resort neighbours, it is very often quieter during the busier months, making it a peaceful alternative for a day on the beach. As the waters are quieter this is a great beach for surfing and water sports as the sea is shallow and clear. There is an instructional school which is located at the back of the beach that offers a whole range of activities for all ages and abilities. There are beach huts which you can look to hire and also a number of benches to sit on along the sea wall path when the tide is further in. The walk along the sea wall between Sandown and Shanklin along the back of the beach is highly recommended as it offers a wide, flat path which is ideal for both walkers and cyclists.

Sandown is a truly traditional British beach resort with pier, amusements, pitch ’n’ putt, Isle of Wight Zoo and the Dinosaur Isle attraction at the northern end of the esplanade towards Yaverland and Culver Cliff. At the other end of the path you will reach Shanklin Esplanade which is again packed full of amusements and crazy golf as well as several places to eat. There is also Shanklin Chine to explore, carved by Mother Nature’s own hands over thousands of years. The stunning tree lined gorge cuts its mark from the old village down to the sandy beach and esplanade below. In the evening, the waterfalls and woodland are illuminated, giving the gardens a totally different aspect and atmosphere.

There are numerous attractions across the island to discover for all ages including The Needles, with its chairlift, amusement park, boat rides, lighthouse and coloured sands of Alum Bay. Visit Queen Victoria’s favourite holiday residence, Osborne House and its gardens, Ventnor Botanical Gardens, Carisbrooke Castle or the sailing towns of Yarmouth and Cowes. Whatever you decide, one thing’s for sure, the Isle of Wight has plenty to offer. Beach ¾ mile. Shop, pub and restaurant 175 yards.
