The apartment was extremely well equipped and very clean. A warm welcome from the owners, including a delicious home made cake that kept us going almost all week. You couldn't ask for a better location than this. Minutes walk from the famous Chine and the shops, yet in a very quiet street.
September is great time to visit the island as most of the tourist have gone, but amenities are still open. No where on the island is more than a forty minute drive away, and there is plenty to do and see.
Would highly recommend this apartment and the island.
Just returned from a lovely week at the Courtyard. Clean and spacious with a beautiful lawn and apple tree to view from the window. Everything we needed was provided and despite the poor weather we made the best of our time in Shanklin. A friendly few minutes chat with Richard and Mirian before we left concluded the week perfectly!! A lovely couple who ensured our privacy whilst always being on hand if needed. When returning to the Isle of Wight we will be looking to stay here again!

Very comfortable,clean, friendly with all mod cons, lots of extras you don't get in hotels or B&B's, walking distance to local shops few minutes drive to supermarket, we loved the more personal touches.
This beautiful apartment is situated in a very quiet area and is approximately a 5 minute walk to the thatched village and a 15 minute walk to the beach. The small hotel we have stayed in for the last 12 years had to suddenly cease trading and could not accommodate our pre booked June holiday. We looked at other hotels but at such short notice we were unable to find one that was suitable . Then a couple on the beach suggested the Courtyard. We had a look and booked the only available week that was available in June and it was a wonderful week. The owners Richard and Miriam were so warm and welcoming and the spotlessly clean modern apartment was first class. The highest accolade I can give is that we were so impressed with the apartment, the lovely owners and the location is that we have already provisionally booked the apartment for three separate weeks for 2018.
Richard and Miriam made us very welcome on arrival the little things like a homemade sponge which was lovely and tea coffee biscuits etc are very thoughtful and their local knowledge of the island is very helpful and they are more than happy to help you plan your day if you want.they will even book your ferry tickets for you if you require it.
the apartment is fantastic and has everything you could want and more,
Car parking is available all week on the property which is a couple of minutes walk to shanklin village and ten more to the seafront and beach.
We wouldn't hesitate to go again or to recommend to family and friends !
Just back from this clean and very comfortable apartment where there was everything you needed and more, for a weeks stay. We were made to feel very welcome by Richard and Miriam and the Victoria Sponge, waiting for us on arrival, was delicious. We enjoyed sitting in the garden after a day exploring the island and just relaxing in the pleasant and peaceful surroundings.
The apartment is very close to Shanklin Old Village, a short walk from the shops, pubs, restaurants and a supermarket and conveniently placed for getting around the whole island by bus.
I would have no hesitation in recommending a stay at The Courtyard.
Just come back from a wonderful weeks stay at The Courtyard. Well what can I say, it's all the other reviews and more, the little extras highly appreciated, the apartment a REAL home from home. Miriam and Richard, such a lovely couple, so welcoming, really enjoyed chatting to them, they even took time out to talk to our grandson, which made him feel extra special. Last but by no means least THE CAKE! FAB-U-LOUS.
We would highly recommend The Courtyard as a place to stay it is ideally situated to give easy access to the rest of the island, we found The Chequers at Rookley (as suggested by Miriam) a great place to eat (cheaper than home pricewise) and plenty of indoor and outdoor activities for children to entertain themselves.
Already looking forward to returning - hopefully will be again this year.
Thank you both.
