The Bedford Lodge is ideally situated in the beautiful Shanklin Old Village 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 to the Isle of Wight for over 150 years, and was built in the 1840 s overlooking the Chine and it was considered to be in an idyllic spot for taking the air and promenading .
All our bedrooms are individually decorated, several with king or superking size beds. We also have 2 premier rooms, as well as rooms on the ground floor.
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.
The beach and Shanklin Esplanade are at the end of the road and Tower Cottage Park and the Chine are opposite. Ideally situated for walking and cycling trials, it s attractively placed for people who like to explore this wonderful island. The close proximity to Yaverland, where the White Air event takes place each year, is of interest to any thrill seeker.
We also arrange bike hire, bag moving and have drying facilities.
There is no access via Chine Avenue. This is for pedestrians only. Our building is accessed by vehicles via Eastcliff Road, PO37 6AA. Our entrance driveway is half way down, on the right, besides the lamp post.
We don t have any spaces in the Vernon Meadow car park as it is council owned so should you choose to park in there you will need to purchase a ticket for your vehicle, the council car park is free after 6pm and before 8am but to save rushing in the mornings we recommend purchasing a parking ticket after 6pm as it will then be valid from 8am the next morning.
You can check in from 14:00. You need to check out by 10:30.
