What makes this cottage unique
I take the opportunity to stay at Percy Cottage myself at the begining and end of the holiday season it has a unique peaceful charming quality about it. It is located in the oldest part of Shanklin town Shanklin has golden sands and safe bathing. Along the sea front there are a wide range of facilities for children, such as crazy golf, trampolines and an adventure play area. Shanklin theatre is a short walk away.
Shanklin Chine is a 3 minute walk away which is a natural fissure in the cliff, formed by water cutting through sandstone. It drops 105 ft to sea level with dramatic waterfalls, deeply shaded paths which wind their way over a quarter of a mile to the sea. There are over 100 varieties of wild plants and many species of moss that flourish in the tranquil atmosphere. At the Chine the Heritage Centre, adjacent to the Gift Shop and Victorian Tea Room, contains an Exhibition and pictorial history of the Isle of Wight, together with a display and film show on the history of the Chine and Pipeline Under The Ocean (referred to as PLUTO).
