Shanklin Old Village Accommodation - The Perfect Setting


The Bedford Lodge is ideally situated in the beautiful Shanklin Old Village, and is set in it's 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' by the Victorian people.

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. We accept dog guests in our ground floor rooms.

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 including pub meals, cream teas, cafe 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.

We have a secure and covered bicycle storage area.

We have a well stocked bar, which is run as an "honesty bar" if we are not around to serve you, simply pour your own drink, write it in the book, and it can be added to your invoice at the end of your stay!

Private car park, based on availability.

Book DIRECT with us for the BEST prices!

Please ask us to provide a preferential rate trade quote on the car ferry return journey.


The Bedford Breakfast


We pride ourselves on our hearty, relaxed breakfast, served until 10am. With unlimited amounts of tea and toast, you can always take a cuppa and sit in the lounge with a paper if you want to. We aim to provide quality food for all diets, just let me know when you book if you have any special requirements. No problem at all. All our eggs are Free range and as much produce as possible is locally sourced or grown. We stock Soya milk and vegetarian products, vegan produce is by prior arrangement.

The lounge is accessible all day and you are welcome to browse through the books and magazines, or watch TV. Please feel free to relax on the sun terrace, and enjoy our garden.
