Lyon Court is a beautiful country house in Shanklin (10 mins walk to old village and shops, 15 mins walk to Shanklin beaches) that has been converted into apartments offering self catering accommodation:
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 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 master bathroom is equipped with a huge p shaped bath with shower over, twin basins within a large vanity unit with a huge separately lit mirror above. The WC has an integral toddler training seat, so no need to bring your own.
The second family bathroom is equipped with a standard sized bath with shower over and a large single basin. The WC also has an integral toddler training seat.
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.
We have installed 3 x 300 litre unvented hot water cylinders that provide hot water at mains pressure. No more weak showers!
Bedroom 1 has a king sized bed, a large wardrobe and a comfy sofa/daybed, with direct access to the eastern side of the building.
Bedroom 2 has a king sized bed, a large wardrobe and its own en-suite shower room.
Bedroom 3 has a king sized bed, a large wardrobe and French doors to the South facing terrace overlooking the gardens and pool.
Bedroom 4 has twin single beds, a large wardrobe and French doors to the South facing terrace overlooking the gardens and pool.
If booking for 7 or more nights a towel set per person is included in the cost of your holiday. If your stay is less than 7 nights, towel sets are available, £5 per person and will need to be booked in advance. A set consists of a bath towel, a pool towel and a hand towel.
The pool is available to use from Whitsun weekend until the end of September.
The Cedar Tree Apartment (sleeps up to 8) Brand new for 2020, this is a spacious first floor apartment taking up the West side of the main building. It benefits from dual aspect to the front and rear of the house. The lounge and kitchen look out to the front of the house with all three bedrooms overlooking the gardens to the rear and a large Cedar tree where you can often see red squirrels, woodpeckers and other local fauna.
The kitchen/diner benefits from a fully equipped kitchen with American Fridge Freezer with ice and cold water dispenser, a range cooker with induction hob, microwave oven, full size dishwasher, toaster, kettle and all crockery, cutlery, pots, pans and utensils that you might need. The dining area comfortably seats 8 and there is a 32” smart TV in case the kids are hogging the larger TV in the lounge!
The lounge is equipped with a 50” Smart TV that is Netflix/Amazon/Apple/Disney + ready with comfy sofas to chill out on after those long days on the beach.
The Main Bathroom is equipped with a full sized bath with shower over, basin and WC. The WC has an integral toddler training seat, so no need to bring your own.
Bedroom 1 has a king size bed with bedside cabinets, a large wardrobe, and a dressing table. This bedroom benefits from an ensuite bathroom comprising a shower, basin and WC.
Bedroom 2 has a double bed, bunk beds for the kids, a large wardrobe and an ensuite bathroom comprising a full sized bath with shower over, basin and WC. Again, the WC has an integral toddler training seat, so no need to bring your own.
Bedroom 3 has a king size bed with bedside cabinets, a large wardrobe, and a chest of drawers.
All bedrooms are big enough to accommodate a cot, if required.
Please note that the Cedar Tree Apartment sleeps up to eight people with two of the beds being bunk beds, so ideal for families with at least 2 children. Additionally a cot can be provided for a baby but the total occupancy must not exceed 8.
This apartment benefits from 3 x 300 litre unvented hot water cylinders that provide hot water at mains pressure. So after a day on the beach, you can jump into a piping hot, powerful shower!
With regard to accessibility, there are 20 steps up to the apartment, then it is all on the same level.
No matter which flat you choose to stay in, you will have access to all of the facilities at Lyon Court including a large, heated outdoor pool (from May until September), gas BBQs, on site launderette and extensive landscaped gardens.
There are also excellent facilities for children including a play set, slide, swings and a split level playhouse.
Lyon Court has been awarded TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2020 and Airbnb Superhosts.
