“Lancaster House was a great place to stay as it was a very comfortable house and a great location for exploring both Sandown and the rest of island and 3 generations of the family thoroughly enjoyed it!”

“Lancaster House is an impressive holiday home with every comfort considered, the property is spacious, with lots of interesting features and thoughtful decor and home furnishings. Parking was never an issue for us and we loved being so very close to the esplanadebeach and local highstreet including Sainsurys and Coop. We toured pretty much the whole of the island whilst staying and nowhere we visited disappointed, we had some excellent meals out too. If you are lookimg for a comfortable, homely, well equipped place to stay in a super location then you will have found it with Lancaster House. Excellent communications from the owners too!”

“Lovely property situated perfectly to explore the island. Also has some history to the place which adds a bit of magic too. Beach and walk to shanklin within doorstep range and plenty of coffee shops for a portable drink on route. A relaxing week made all the more special for having a welcoming property to end your day at.”

“Fabulous house, plenty large enough for 6 adults. It has been sympathetically restored and beautifully decorated, is warm, light, and has everything you need for a comfortable holiday.Easy access to the beach (2minute walk) and by car to the rest of the island and all it has to offer.Parking (we took 2 cars) was never an issue”

“Great location! It's just off the highstreet but still quiet. The beach is very close too. The rooms are spacious but the house is still cosy and has been renovated to a very high standard. The area is wellserved by public transport, with buses in the highstreet and Sandown station a short walk away. There are numerous pubs and restaurants to visit nearby, The Bandstand being a favourite of ours. This is the third time we've stayed here and will certainly be returning soon.”

“This is the 5th time we have stayed here. The property has been beautifully restored and is ideally situated for access both to the town and to the fantastic sandy beach. We love going to the Isle of Wight as it is so relaxing and we can totally switch off from the hubbub of everyday life.”
