A short stroll from the beach and close to shops and restaurants the Lodge is a convenient place to explore this beautiful island. After a busy day come back and relax with complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits and sit in our mature secluded garden. All bedrooms are individually decorated and en-suite. A hearty and leisurely breakfast is provided all cooked to order.
The Bedford Lodge is ideally situated in the beautiful Old Village of Shanklin and is set in its own south facing, private gardens with sloping lawns, mature trees, flowering bushes and a sun terrace with views towards the Downs. The Bedford has been welcoming guests for over 150 years, and was built in the 1840’s looking the Chine and it was considered to be in an idyllic spot for ‘taking the air’ and ‘promenading’.
Present day visitors appreciate the quick 5-minute stroll to the beach and Shanklin Esplanade. The close proximity to Yaverland where the White Air event takes place each year, is of interest to any thrill seeker. Ideally situated for walking and cycling trials, it’s attractively placed for people who like to explore this wonderful island. We also arrange bike hire, bag moving and have drying facilities.
It’s so easy to pop out for a relaxing drink, or grab a bite to eat close by, with a huge choice of fare to choose from; pub meals, cream teas, café food, ethnic and fine dining. Everything is on the doorstep with only a brief stroll home at the end of a busy day.
