During World War II it was the headquarters of the Royal Marine Commandos and used by the team planning P.L.U.T.O the Pipeline Under The Ocean.

    We had a wonderful stay in Fairfield. The double beds were huge and very comfortable. The apartment was equipped with all you could wish for. The location was perfect for a little browsing round Old Shanklin or a walk down to the beach. Just a word of warning - a large percentage of attractions and tea rooms are only open from March to October. Not that this bothered us, as we were very fortunate with the weather and were able to enjoy the sea views.

    A great place, ina great location. Best nights sleep in a bed ever! Plenty of room for a family of 4 & dog. Beautiful beeches nearby. Would definitely stay again, and gladly recommend.

    Fairfield Old School House was a great place to stay and ticked all our boxes - very, very comfortable and had everything we needed. High quality - huge and comfortable beds - real wooden floors - new equipment - very clean and all in working order - nothing to complain about at all - all in all, a great place to stay! The wooden chess set was used every day...also played IOW Monopoly, but Dad won :-(! Thanks Neil and Jane x

    Fairfield has a wonderful location within walking distance of Old Shanklin and the beach. The dog friendly part of the beach has plenty of space for dogs to run around but check the tides before you venture out. The apartment is fully equipped to meet every need. There is a wealth of information left by the owners about local attractions, restaurants and general information. The apartment is beautifully presented with large bedrooms and a lovely lounge to relax in.
