Lyon Court

Description

Lyon Court is a beautiful Victorian house in a countryside setting, tastefully converted into individual apartments. It overlooks Shanklin Down, yet is close to bus & train routes, and only 10 minutes walk to Shanklin Old Village or 15 minutes walk to the beach.

The Garden Apartment: 

This 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 eight 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 two ovens, a grill and an induction hob with five burners, a full sized dishwasher and a dedicated wine cooler which is perfect when catering for eight people!

We were unable to buy a kettle that would make eight 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, equipped with a private hot tub 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.  Guests are able to connect to their Netflix/Amazon Prime accounts from the TV too.

A wireless access point has also been installed, giving a fast wifi connection throughout the whole apartment and on the terrace.

The spacious master bathroom is equipped with a huge p shaped bath with shower over, twin basins within a large vanity unit with a separately lit mirror the entire width of the room 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. Again, the WC also has an integral toddler training seat.

The en-suite to bedroom 2 is equipped with a large shower enclosure, WC, 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.

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!

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.

Towel sets are available to hire at a cost of £5 per set, per week. A set consists of a bath towel, a pool towel and a hand towel.

The pool, sauna and hot tub are available to use from the late May bank holiday weekend until the end of September.
