Over at Highlands, the highlight of spring is the daffodils that pop up in the garden. Having undertaken the conversion over several years, there wasn’t any life in the garden. However, as soon as the garden was finished, in its first spring, daffodils were appearing around the garden.
With the site being unused since the early 1990s, the daffodils date back to at least then and may be even older. Along with the selection of trees, many of which grew whilst the site was unused, there is our landmark sweet chestnut, which, by our calculations, dates back to the 1870s and must have been planted by Sir James Thomson Ritchie, the first owner of the original Highlands.
As the year moves on, we are are already looking to 2019 with our first guests booked and 2019 availability open for all. Prices have been held at 2018 rates, so get booking to secure your 2019 holiday.
However, back to this year, with the summer sun now upon us and the thoughts of a sunny summer holiday on the Isle of Wight in the air, there are just a handful of weeks left across our apartments for June, July and August of 2018.
Check out our availability to nab a week away before they go – 2018 has been a hugely popular year, so the Isle of Wight is the place to be.
Don’t forget we can offer a discount for Red Funnel and also have travel cots with linen and high chairs available to our guests free of charge.

Shanklin Holiday Homes are delighted to launch both our newest apartments at Highlands and the 2017 season.
