Mini Moon

We stayed at Lyon Court for our mini moon as we need a time to relax after our wedding. I’m so glad we chose Lyon court it was perfect. We stayed in the stable which was clean and comfortable. The garden is beautiful it was lovely to sit in the stable patio area and listen to the birds in the day time and gaze at the stars in the night. The hosts were friendly and approachable but equally very discreet. The private hot tub was just awesome. I really cannot think of a better more relaxing place to of spent our first few days of married life. We really cannot thank you enough.

Spacious & Well Equipped Apartment

The apartment is spacious and well equipped. It is a great bonus having access to the warm outdoor pool and garden, complete with climbing frame for the kids. We enjoyed being able to walk down to Old Shanklin and the esplanade from the apartment and enjoy the beach and pubs with live music. It's not the shortest walk with small kids but we managed nonetheless! Was definitely worth it for them. Shanklin Chine is worth a visit and exciting for kids when illuminated at night. There are so many lovely places to visit on The Isle Of Wight and all nearby! Dan and Bec are very warm, welcoming and helpful. They gave us plenty of information of things to do/visit, also showing us how to benefit from discounts. They even offered us a free photo shoot and bus passes! You couldn't ask for nicer hosts!

Lovely Stay

Very comfortable stay at The Garrett. Refurbished this year and great addition of the dishwasher! Great to have the pool for the kids. Will return!

Fantastic Holiday

We have just had a two week holiday at Lyon Court and it was fantastic. We stayed in the Garrett apartment which was spotlessly clean, well appointed and very comfortable, with more than enough room for our party of 4 adults and 1 child of 2 years. Dan and Becky were lovely and did more than anyone could expect to make our holiday enjoyable and memorable. The pool and children's play area were great as were the gardens, even taking into consideration the long spell of dry weather. We would certainly recommend Lyon Court and will definitely be staying there in the future

Perfect holiday accommodation

Lyon Court delivers its promises and photos on the website. As a special family week away consisting of Grandparents, Parents, 8 year old child & 3 year old, it was a perfect place to base ourselves in the equally lovely Shanklin on the Isle of Wight. The outdoor pool was used everyday and was warm enough to spend a nice time playing in these, complete with slide and resident pink inflatable flamingo! The kids play area is superb, well maintained and safe. My daughters particularly liked the 2 storey playhouse. The apartment had most things you could wish for in a self catering unit, and was very clean. Should have remembered my slippers as all floors are wooden! 3 rooms have doors opening onto the veranda, which was great when we had a few bursts of rain, in that we could still have a drink sitting outside and feel cool. The owners were on hand for any needs we had, and were lovely too, and nothing too much trouble. As the owners are ambassadors for Isle of Wight ‘Drive Less See More’ bus travel scheme, they can lend you a free bus pass to travel the Island. We borrowed them one day to travel on the Needles Breezer, where my daughters were thrilled to sit on the top deck of a double decker bus for the first time. Lyon Court is walkable to the Old Village via the Westhill Road, and if so inclined could walk further to the beach. Would definitely recommend to others looking for that family time away complete with those little extras.

Perfect accommodation, fantastic hosts!

We stayed for a two week break end of July Start of August. I honestly cannot recommend Lyon Court enough. From the moment we booked Dan and Becky couldn’t have been more helpful. The accommodation was brilliant very spacious and clean considering we were a group of 4 adults and a energetic 2 year old. The facilities pool and play area were a real bonus and the grounds they’re set in are stunning and very well kept. We had the best family holiday we have had so far! Thank you and we will definitely be back soon once the flamingo has moved on!

A wonderful family week away - couldn't have been better!

From start to finish, we couldn't have asked for a more perfect stay in the IOW. Becs and Dan went above and beyond to make sure we found the perfect days out (even when the weather let us down). They even booked our ferry which made life so much easier - the accomodation was clean and airy, the kids loved the bunk beds and the kitchen had every utensil you could wish for. The pool was brilliant for the children, they had to be dragged away from the pool slide. The week couldn't have been better, my parents and I loved every second. Just perfect!

Lovely Holiday

From the outside the house appeared 'old' but when venturing inside the whole place was very modern and excellently clean. It was great having breakfast 'al fresco' on the veranda. The pool area was greatly used and was very clean. Granddaughters enjoyed the play house and swing area. It was private from other residents in Lyon Court. One unfortunate thing was that the hot tub broke down and was not able to be repaired before we left. Shanklin is a great place for a holiday and we would certainly go there in the future.

"Glad you had a good time and our sincere apologies about the hot tub. On learning it was broken, we attempted to find a firm to make the repair but there is no one on the island capable of doing so! I ordered a new hot tub the same day, but unfortunately it didn't arrive until the evening before you left, so would not have got up to temperature. We hope to see you guys again sometime as we very much enjoyed hosting you."

Wonderful Place!

There is so much to say about this wonderful place that I can’t begin to think where to start but I will give it a go. Upon arrival we were greeted by a friendly host, Dan. He gave us. Tour of the apartment, it’s amenities and also a welcome package for us and the children to enjoy. As two families with young children there was a lot of care and attention given to ensuring our stay was as relaxing as can be. From bed barriers to cots to high chairs everything had been thought of. The kitchen was well equipped with an adequate sized fridge/freezer. Plenty of crockery and utensils. A lovely and very useful dishwasher and microwave too. A gorgeous terrace with private hot tub and BBQ made for lovely evenings relaxing as adults. The gated pool was warm and inviting and made all the better for being equipped with a slide!! A gorgeous garden with playhouse the kids thoroughly enjoyed playing in, even during the damper days. The apartment and its bedrooms/bathrooms were clean, well presented and spacious. Plenty of room for 4 adults and 4 children and all the stuff that comes with two families. We chose to hire towels which was a really good thing to do as not only did it save on space it was one less thing to think about and these were clean, soft and beautifully presented upon arrival. We made use of the laundry room (you’ll need £1 coins) and this was very accessible and easy to use. Dan was very informative of both the area of Shanklin and if the Isle as a whole. Lots of advice and tips for us to consider. A babysitting service was also offered and, though we didn’t use it, we definitely considered it!! We will be returning to Lyon Court again in the not too distant future and simply cannot wait. Thank you Dan and family for making it a holiday we will all never forget!!

Lovely Week!

We had a lovely week at this apartment. The apartment had everything that he needed and both bedrooms were a good size. The pool was great and my daughter looked forward to swimming everyday, especially using the slide. There is also a wendy house and climbing frame which are especially good for the under 5s. Dan and Bec were very welcoming and were keen to ensure we had a lovely stay. There are lots of attraction leaflets at the apartment. Overall we had a great week and I would definitely recommend the apartments to others.
