Luxury Shanklin cottages

Luxury Shanklin cottagesLuxury Shanklin cottages offer the ideal base for exploring attractive Sandown Bay with its family-friendly, sandy beaches and resorts. Shanklin, once a fishing village, became popular with Victorian tourists during the first half of the 19th century. Perhaps its most famous visitor was the eminent Victorian scientist Charles Darwin, who discovered the resort quite by chance and liked it so much he stayed for more than a year.

Darwin spent 1858 lodging at Norfolk House (now the Waterfront Inn), where he worked on his world-changing Origin of Species book and wrote to friends: “. . . we think this the nicest sea-side place, which we have ever seen and we like Shanklin better than other spots . . .”
Seafront development grew with the town’s popularity; a pier (sadly destroyed in the storms of 1987) was built and tourists flocked to marvel at beautiful Shanklin Chine, a gorge stretching up from the Esplanade to the cliff-top Old Village. Then, as today, visitors came to marvel at its natural beauty and lush vegetation.
On the beach below is the Fisherman’s Cottage, now a thatched pub, built in 1817 by William Colenutt, the man credited with making the Chine accessible to the public. From luxury cottages Shanklin, its sandy beaches and natural attractions, are just a stone’s throw away.
