I stayed at foxhills for a long weekend with my elderly mother in august.
When we arrived we were greeted by James(who is the perfect host) and served with a pot of tea and home made chocolates on the patio,whilst he took our cases to our room,such a lovely gesture.
It is a really beautiful oldy worldy b and b,we had a lovely room which had everything you could want and overlooked the woodlands at the back.
The breakfasts,that were cooked by his wife,were absolutely delicious and there was so much choice.
The b and b is only a 10 minute walk away from Shanklin village, a beautiful oldy worldy village with lots of thatched roof cottages and where there is an excellent choice of restaurants and tea rooms.The entrance to Shanklin chime is also there too,along side of 'The Crab' and which takes you down to the beach and the seafront.There is also a lift a short walk away that will take you down the cliff,right on to the seafront,where there are more restaurants and bars and a lovely beach.Go into The Fishermans Cottage pub at the very end of the seafront and at the bottom of Shanklin chime,it is really lovely and quaint.
In our few days there,we purchased a rover ticket for the bus which cost 15 pounds for 48 hours unlimited travel,and went all over the island.The ticket covers all buses on the island including all the road trains and open top buses.You really get your moneys worth!
To sum up,I would thoroughly recommend staying in Shanklin and at Foxhills,you really cant go wrong staying here,and wont regret it.
