Apartment 2 at Highlands is a large three bedroom apartment sleeping 5 with sea views in an imposing cliff top location. Taking its name from the imposing Victorian residence that stood on the cliff top site for over 100 years, it was originally built for the Lord Mayor of London, Sir James Thomson Ritchie, and subsequently used by Reverend William Page Roberts, Bishop of Salisbury, for his final years. It was later owned by the McAuslane family, who turned it into a well known hotel. After its closure, it was then used by Upper Chine School for its final years. After being left for a decade, the current Highlands was then constructed, a grand and impressive mock Georgian manor house that lived up to its predecessor in terms of scale and views across Shanklin.

Taking its name from the imposing Victorian residence that stood on the cliff top site for over 100 years, it was originally built for the Lord Mayor of London, Sir James Thomson Ritchie, and subsequently used by Reverend William Page Roberts, Bishop of Salisbury, for his final years. It was later owned by the McAuslane family, who turned it into a well known hotel. After its closure, it was then used by Upper Chine School for its final years. After being left for a decade, the current Highlands was then constructed, a grand and impressive mock Georgian manor house that lived up to its predecessor in terms of scale and views across Shanklin. However, it was never finished and derelict, open to the elements, for a decade. Now, after an extensive refurbishment and conversion, it is now restored into 5 spacious, luxurious apartments. Apartment 2 is a ground floor apartment accessed via the communal area with a spacious double bedroom with ensuite, twin bedroom and single bedroom to fit all of the family in. There is a large bathroom, open plan kitchen/diner flowing into the unique curved living area with direct access to communal garden and spectacular sea views of Sandown Bay. All of the apartments benefit from oak furniture and leather sofas, oak floored living areas with fitted kitchens with granite worktops and all your key appliances, 32″ LED TV with Freesat and DVD and free wifi. Communal gardens are available for all apartments to enjoy with seating available alongside off road parking and cycle parking bays. Highlands benefits from spectacular panoramic sea, town and countryside views around the building, going across to Sandown Bay, Shanklin town and the Downs towards Ventnor. The property is found on the coastal path between Shanklin and Sandown and just down the road from National Trust land and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is also a few minutes walk from the picturesque Old Village and its thatched cottages, plus shops, pubs, restaurants and the main town, as well as the cliff top, Esplanade and Shanklin's beaches. For larger families, there are 4 other apartments sleeping 3 to 5 each over the four levels at Highlands, Shanklin Manor, sleeping 4, and The Priory, sleeping 4, close-by, enabling large families to holiday together.
