Lovely, comfortable, well equipped apartment in a quiet leafy location but still easy walking distance in to the town.

wonderful apartment containing everything you could possibly need for your stay. The location was excellent and the surroundings wonderful. We would certainly consider visiting this property again in the future.

10 Shanklin Manor is a lovely apartment in the leafy green area just outside Shanklin Old Village. Beautifully furnished, extremely comfortable, with all mod cons and a great sun terrace complete with a pair of white pigeons. It's easy to walk to bus stops to grab a bus to Ventnor or round the coast to the Needles. Excellent Sunday lunch at the Village Inn and cream tea at the thatched cafe opposite. Pavarotti's is excellent for Italian but do remember to book!

Highly recommend, everything is 5* . The bottle of champagne is a lovely gesture. Private roof top terrace with sun loungers provided.

Lovely, high quality apartment in a wonderful, peaceful location. Plenty of space with a great patio / decking area. Easy walk into Shanklin Old Town with lots of dining options.

We really enjoyed our stay at Shanklin Manor. It is a beautifully appointed, spacious apartment with high quality furnishings and decor. It is in a lovely location and the rest of the island is easily accessible. We could not recommend Shanklin Manor highly enough.

10 Shanklin Manor is a lovely retreat. Very quietly situated on the edge of Shanklin, but an easy enough walk to the old village. The apartment is very well equipped and has a light, spacious feel. We were lucky with the weather and were able to use the large roof patio to eat out, relax and watch the rabbits and green woodpeckers in the grounds. The apartment is excellent value for money.

This really is an outstanding holiday rental property, with every possible requirement catered for. Really don’t see how it could be improved. Faultless. If/when we return to The Isle of Wight, we would not look anywhere else.

Ideal location for our family holiday.
The apartment is spacious and very well equipped. It was spotlessly clean and comfortable for a family of four (children aged 15 & 12). Walking distance to Shanklin and the old Village. Lovely week exploring the many sights and activities on the Isle of Wight. Hope to return and would definitely choose 10 Shanklin Manor as our home from home!

We are pleased to hear that you had a lovely stay at 10 Shanklin Manor and look forward to welcoming you back soon! Shaleen, Customer Support


This apartment went above and beyond our expectations. The standard of fixtures and fittings was of the highest quality, the owners have thought about everything. The terrace was a great bonus, although due to the time of year of our visit, we didn't use it as an additional seating area. The manor is in an excellent location, just a 7/8 minute walk into the beautiful old part of Shanklin. There was a bottle of champagne waiting for us which was a lovely gesture. I would give it more than 5 stars if I could.

Excellent accommodation, beautifully furnished and in a fabulous location. Clean and tidy and has everything you could need

10 Shanklin Manor is fantastic. It’s specious & beautifully presented with amazing outside space if weather permits. Fully equipped with everything you could need. Just a short walk into Shanklin it’s self. I would highly recommend. Only thing to consider would be the stairs inside the property,If you are travelling with someone who has mobility issues the stairs maybe a problem. Other than that a fabulous place to stay on the Island.

We have been coming to the island for the last 22yrs but shanklin and the manor is our favourite had a week here last 6 yrs , as in beautiful settings close to everything you need and apartments lovely, but no 10 was spectacular with everything you would need ,Great roof top terrace lovely ensuite bedrooms hi-tech kitchen very clean an comfortable,with attention to detail everywhere,good price , and great being able to have ferry discount,and as always great communication all the way from both owner and classic.

We had a lovely two week stay in this wonderful apartment. It is beautifully furnished and equipped with everything you might need. It is in a great location and we enjoyed the walk down to Shanklin village. We love holidaying in the Isle of Wight and this made the perfect base.

This is our 3rd stay at no. 10. The apartment is comfortable, modern, clean and in a perfect location. We couldn't ask for better.

Perfect in every way!

We had a fabulous week. We were lucky that the weather allowed us to enjoy the private terrace. The surroundings were fabulous, we enjoyed watching the rabbits outside. Loved everything. This may be the best property we have ever stayed in and can't wait to go back.

We have stayed in 10 Shanklin Manor before and cannot wait to return for a third time! Everything inside the apartment is top grade and the owners provide everything you could possibly need. The apartment was spotless and so comfortable and during this visit we were able to make use of the wonderful terrace. It is easy to walk into Shanklin for shops, coffee and restaurants. We love it!

Best quality of accommodation I've ever stayed in ??!

views on all sides - including local wildlife

Fabulous as a base, but with modern and tech stuff to make you want to stay in as well! 5* rating, which was no surprise - the stock photos of the Apartment were close, until you got there, and the wow factor hit!

The Covid restrictions didn't spoil the time away -

A Definite must to re-book!

Needed to email the owner due to heating and he replied almost immediately and corrected it remotely. Very grateful for the speed and efficiency. Thank you. The apartment was spacious, clean welcoming and we all enjoyed being there.

Our stay at 10 Shanklin Manor was everything we could have hoped for. Great location and extremely well furnished/equipped, there was everything we could possibly have needed and it was all of high quality too. This beautiful apartment is a credit to the owners and Classic Cottages- We really didn’t want to leave!

Gorgeous property. Great facilities and so peaceful. Only a stones throw from the village centre. Truly indulgent

What a wonderful property. In a lovely peaceful setting but within walking distance of Shanklin, restaurants and the sea front. The apartment is fantastic, beautifully presented, fabulously equipped and spotlessly clean. The outside space is a real bonus (just a shame the August weather did not permit full enjoyment of it!). I could not recommend this property more highly

This apartment is excellent in every way.

We are a family of 5 adults and spent a wonderful sunny week at Shanklin Manor, enjoying nearly all our meals on the large terrace. The apartment is extremely well equipped and everything is of top quality. It was also impeccably clean on arrival. The location was very convenient being a short walk to the main street of Shanklin where there are plenty of restaurants and also a short walk to the beach. Having not been to the Island for 21 years, we had wondered whether there would be enough to keep us occupied as we only remembered the attractions for children. As it turned out, we ran out of days before we ran out of things to do. We would highly recommend a stay at No. 10 and would love to come back.

This is a stunning example of holiday rental property. Everything is top rate from furnishing, decoration, facilities, appliances and ancillaries. Anyone considering this property should go for it without reservation as there is little to no chance of disappointment. By far the best rental property we have booked in 20 year+ of self-catering holidays. A credit to the owner.

The apartment has a lovely tranquil setting and is peaceful and quiet. We like the wooded approach from the old village.

The apartment is beautiful and every room offers the utmost comfort. From the moment you step through the front door you just don’t want to leave. Fabulous!

Excellent place to stay as it was spotlessly clean, spacious and in wonderful grounds. Everything we could possibly need was available and the beds were extremely comfortable. Certainly one of the best places we have ever stayed.

We all loved the apartment. The location was excellent. Nice touch with the chilled bottle of champagne too! Nice and quiet but still near enough to wander down to Shanklin for something to eat in the evenings or down to the beach. The roof terrace was a real bonus too. Really enjoyed our stay and if we want to holiday on the Isle of Wight again we wouldn't hesitate to see if this apartment was available.

Lovely rural location, but at the same time a short walk into town. Comfortable, immaculate, well equipped, spacious. We loved it!

Great property. Modern, very well equipped, spacious apartment in an elegant manor house. Only 10 minutes walk from the charming old village. Loved the ducklings on the terrace!

Lovely apartment if a very good location.

Beautiful apartment. Exceptionally clean and comfortable. Best i have ever stayed in. Great location. Close to all attractions, bars and restaurants. Cannot recommended highly enough.

Great apartment. Well equipped and lovely location.

Beautiful, quiet location, only 10 minues walk from Shanklin pubs and restaurants. Lovely spacious apartment with beautiful private terrace. Very well equipped with high quality fittings. Thoroughly recommend.

Fantastic accommodation! Excellently equipped! Beautifully decorated. Loved the shower in the main bedroom! Beds really comfortable! We absolutely loved the apartment! Great location to get to the beach, Shanklin Chine, Tea Rooms and amazing local restaurants! We will book again! Can't wait for next year! X

Beautiful apartment in a great location, it was another perfect family holiday.

This accommodation is in a magnificent building within beautiful grounds in a quite location on the outskirts of Old Shanklin. The apartment is spacious and fitted out to an excellent standard, including a wonderful secluded outdoor terrace overlooking the grounds and surrounding countryside. This is a great base for exploring the delights of the Isle of Wight.
