About Peter & Mandy Daley
We have owned Clematis Cottage for eight years. We are both lucky enough to have be brought up on the Isle of Wight. We chose Clematis Cottage for its great location, close to the beach, the old Village, parks and countryside, perfect for our family. We have three children, one boy and two girls , they all love Shanklin and the beach and can't wait to stay in the cottage. Being a close family all hands are on deck, our mums are a great help, we have lovely housekeepers and their families who also help, and a willing gardener's who turns his hands to almost anything. Knowing how much families have to take with them on holiday we have tried to think of everything so that all that needs to be had is a good time! We really hope you love the cottage and The Isle of Wight as much as we do.
Peter & Mandy Daley purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Peter & Mandy Daley chose Shanklin
We already owned honeysuckle and Jasmine cottages and were finding it hard to book a week for ourselves, Clematis became available, it didn't take much thinking about! we love Shanklin and the old village, the cottages are in a great location, plenty to do near by and an equal distance from both of our parents, it has proved to be the right decision for us.
What makes this Cottage unique
The garden and play area seem to be a real favorite with the children and so in turn their parents. Many guests make great friends with our other guests and return year after year. In the evenings its lovely to be able to walk into the old Village for a meal, and so close that the children don't complain! The beach also is roughly a ten minute walk away, not having to find a parking space makes it much easier, although it is up hill on the way back.

Home from home
The cottage was ideally located for all amenities in shanklin. The cottage had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Our 2 year old son loved the garden, we saw red squirrels and lots of Jay birds while we were here. The owners were always really prompt in responding to us. We really hope we can come back soon! Thank you

Excellent stay at Clematis cottage!
We had a fantastic stay at Clematis cottage. The location was brilliant, a 10 minute walk into Shanklin. The cottage is very child friendly and has a lovely garden. Peter and Mandy were so helpful and left an Easter Egg for each of our sons which was such a lovely touch. We will definitely be coming back!
We were very impressed with the property and location. The owner’s direction to the property and the maps of the locality were the best we have received from our numerous holiday property visits.
We really enjoyed the walking from the property. Locally there are plenty of places to walk, a substantial number of miles can be covered from the property without the need to travel. The surrounding area in parts is hilly which my be an issue for some but there is plenty of parking down by the sea front for those that either can’t or don’t like walking.
Within 10 minutes walk, maximum, of the property their are numerous pubs, plenty of places to eat and the main town.
Shanklin’s Beach, is approximately a ten minute walk from Clematis Cottage. The sandy beaches at Shanklin, perfect for sandcastles, hold the seaside award, for its clean waters and facilities. The Old Village with its thatched cottages, Tea rooms and gift shops are less than a 5 minute walk, and a welcome stop for an ice cream or cold beer on the way back from the beach. Big Mead park, the entrance to Shanklin Chine and Rylstone gardens are also less than 5 minutes away. The seaside town of Shanklin is a 10-15 minute walk with all the amenities you would expect, Bank, supermarkets, Chemist and local theater which our children love, especially the pantomime at Christmas !
