Caroline Alexander purchased this house in 2009

Why Caroline Alexander chose Isle of Wight

We, as a family bought Shenstone in 2009 as our retirement home, but little did we know how much we would fall in love with the house!

The house has a wonderful family feel to it and never fails to make us smile as we walk through the door.

With ample space for the family if it starts to rain and the garden with its local residents of red squirrels and hummingbird hawk moths, Shenstone never fails to give us pleasure.

We offer off road parking for three cars which is essential as Ventnor is built on a very steep hill.

Shenstone's location is a fantastic starting point to visit the island.

Local shops and the beach are within walking distance and there are lots of fantastic walks starting just outside the house!

What makes this house unique

Stunning sea views from the bedrooms, large terraced garden with BBQ and off road parking . Close to local shops. Long country walks starting from just outside the door. Open fire and 2 wood burners to keep you warm during the winter months.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely house to stay in and the new deck area in the garden gave the family lots of space. Fab weather!!!!

Thank goodness for off road parking it made all the difference to our stay:)

See you next year xx

Welcome To Our Beautiful Victorian Family Home
average rating of 5.0 based on 2 reviews

A true home from home stay!

  • 5 of 5

A well laid out family home. Really clean and well maintained with thoughtful touches and very comfortable beds. Lovely location with sea views and sunny terraced garden. A short walk down into the town with a good range of shops and restaurants. Particularly enjoyed meals at the Bonchurch Inn and visits to the fishmongers on the Ventnor seafront. Excellent customer service and can be thoroughly recommended.
