Old Stable

The Old Stable was a pleasant place to stay with pretty much all the equipment you would need. Property was very clean. The owners are a lovely couple and will go the extra mile.

The Old Stable

Perfect for what we needed, quiet and relaxing and a lovely private, self contained property. Hot tub was excellent.

Wonderful apartment, close to centre

2 families sharing the Garden Apartment (4 adults, 3 teenagers). Plenty of space, very clean, all the utensils, equipment & furniture needed. Generous patio area dedicated to the apartment with plenty of space for the hot tub, bbq large garden table & chairs. Hosts Dan & Becky were superb - very accommodating and available if you needed to speak with them. Located on the outskirts of Shanklin meant privacy and peaceful, and yet only a short (10 mins) walk to the centre of Shanklin.

We recently stayed for a week in The Old Stable, a lovely studio apartment which stands alone in the grounds and has its very own hot tub too. It's a superb apartment which we found very clean, comfortable, specious and really well equipped. The lovely owners Dan and Bec are on hand if necessary and have wonderful local knowledge which was a great help. We can 100% recommend Lyon Court.

Thank you for your kind words, glad you enjoyed your stay with us! Welcome back any time!

Cosy accommodation with excellent facilities

Very much enjoyed a return visit to the Old Stable at Lyon Court this summer. The hospitality from our hosts was excellent as ever and the hot tub, garden and pool make this place stand out. The location is good for country walks and provides easy access to the whole island. We also took advantage of the free bus pass scheme Lyon Court have available and the bus service is very comprehensive. The accommodation is very cosy, well laid out to utilise space and is well resourced. We hope to return again in the future!

Thank you for your kind words, glad you enjoyed your stay with us again. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future!

A Truly Wonderful Week spent at Lyon Court

In August I celebrated my 60th birthday at Lyon Court with my family. What an excellent decision it was. The Garden Apartment was perfect for our needs which included 6 adults and two grandsons aged 6 and 4. The apartment was fitted out with everything we needed for our stay; including wine fridge (that had to be first on the list!), dishwasher, large fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster and it even had a boiling water tap! There was plenty of space to move around and there was a large table that could comfortably seat all of us. However the weather was so good we usually had breakfast, lunch and dinner outside! The bedrooms were spacious and clean and the bathrooms were fitted out to a very high standard. We had our own hot tub, which was used nearly every day, a gas BBQ, a sauna and a communal pool. The gardens were large enough to accommodate a family game of cricket and rounders. There was also a small play area. When we arrived Daniel showed us around and told us how everything worked. He was very knowledgeable about the area and helped us out with the best places to go crabbing and recommended a very good restaurant that suited both adults and children. They also sent emails throughout the week to let us know if there was anything of interest happening. We all had a fantastic week and had plenty of lovely memories to take home with us.

Great place for families

As a family of 4, the Garret at Lyon's court was spacious enough and had all the amenities we needed for a self catering holiday. Very clean and comfortable with some nice added touches waiting for us on arrival: Bottle of red wine, biscuits, Lyon Court T-Shirts for the kids to wear and a beach bag. A great base to explore the Isle of Wight and Shanklin Beach is only a short walk away. The kids loved coming back at the end of each day to enjoy both the heated swimming pool and play area as well as the opportunity of making friends with other families staying in the other apartments. Highly recommend as a family holiday location.

Wonderful Hosts and Accommodating

This was our second visit to Lyons Court. The accommodation is excellent. It is very clean with beautiful contemporary furnished rooms and it is well equipped. We had the use of a Sauna, hot top and a nice sized and well heated swimming pool. Our hosts, Dan and Becky could not have been more helpful. We will definitely return.

Ideal for a family holiday

A well equipped base for a family holiday in the Isle of Wight. The pool was a added bonus for the kids who love swimming. It was hard to find anywhere offering this facility so it was a big plus. The apartment was comfortable, clean and had everything we needed.

Special First Family Holiday

We visited the iow car free with our baby...first family holiday. The Old Stable is compact but had everything we needed. Our son slept well in his travel cot and we loved the easy clean highchair. There was enough room to park the pram inside and we really appreciated the owners giving us a lift from the station and back... especially with all our stuff...including a vintage toy car from the lovely you shop on the return trip! Good bus services and near bus stop. Easy to get to the zoo and the beaches. Really handy to have the free travel passes for a few days too. Lovely owners were very helpful and usually onsite or just a call away if we needed anything. Thank you for making our first family holiday special.
