The Miclaran is situated on the cliff top between Shanklin and Sandown .. There is a tarmac cliff path connecting both. For anyone without transport, there is an excellent bus service connecting all parts of the island - wonderful if you are fortunate enough to have a freedom bus pass !
Our first impression was very favourable thanks to a genuinly warm welcome by Sue and Alan, the proprietors. For the next five days, that impression was reinforced thanks to a very comfortable room ( lovely bed ) and first rate breakfasts.
The IOW has much to offer especially if you like walking in the countryside. We would be very happy to return to the Miclaran.
