Shanklin, Isle of Wight
Lyon Court is a beautiful country house in Shanklin on the Isle of Wight that has been converted into apartments offering self catering accommodation.
AccommodationThere are 5 apartments at Lyon Court as follows:
** The Garden Apartment ** (sleeps up to 8) has recently been refurbished to a very high standard and takes up the entire storey at garden level. With the ceiling height in excess of 8 feet in most rooms, stylish dimmable LED downlights throughout and large windows and doors, it makes for a very bright, airy apartment. There is underfloor heating with porcelain, vintage wood effect floor tiling throughout, giving it a Mediterranean feel.
The kitchen is equipped with a family sized fridge/freezer, a range cooker with 2 ovens, a grill and an induction hob with 5 burners, a full sized dishwasher and a dedicated wine cooler which is perfect when catering for 8 people!
We were unable to buy a kettle that would make 8 cups of tea at once, so we have installed a Grohe instant boiling water system in the kitchen so that everyone can have their morning tea/coffee at the same time.
The dining area has a large table and seating for everyone with a large chandelier above. There are French doors that open out on to the South facing terrace, equipped with a private hot tub overlooking the gardens and pool.
The lounge area is equipped with a 49" smart flatscreen TV and comfy seating for when you fancy chilling out.
A wireless access point has also been installed, giving a fast wifi connection throughout the whole apartment and on the terrace

The en-suite to bedroom 2 is equipped with a large shower enclosure, and a vanity unit with basin and large separately lit mirror.
Grohe taps and showers have been installed throughout to give the apartment a quality finish, that you might expect from a high quality hotel.

Local AreaThe Isle of Wight is a favourite destination for walkers. It has a wide variety of countryside ranging from river estuaries to spectacular cliffs. Picturesque villages give way to pretty farms, river valleys and nature reserves. Almost half of the island is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Plan your walk to include an attraction, such as the Botanic Gardens at Ventnor (free entry), Nunwell House at Brading, the Needles Battery. Or just through a picturesque village like Godshill. Or enjoy the contrast of descending from the isolation of Tennyson Down into the busy Alum Bay Theme Park, and then on towards Colwell Bay.
