South Isle of Wight Information

The South of the Isle of Wight is a wonderful mix of pretty beaches and dramatic coastal landscape. The sand and shingle beach at Ventnor is one of the more popular holiday locations but hidden gems such as Bonchurch and Steephill Cove are really worth a visit too.

The coastal path around the South Coast of the Isle of Wight is a particularly beautiful stretch to explore and passes a number of attractive sites which include Steephill Cove, Orchard Bay and St Catherine's Light House at Niton Undercliff. Some of this area has been prone to erosion so you must stick to the footpath and take heed of diversions.

Inland one finds a beautiful rural area with high downs from which panoramic views can be enjoyed. A Botanical garden at Ventnor takes advantage of a warm micro climate found in this part of the Island. View more South Isle of Wight Cottages

June 2017
Debs, Gary and Angel XXX
Our first visit to Sea Shells by the Beach and will certainly not be our last.
What a fantastic cottage and location, spotlessly clean.
We were greeted on arrival by Annabelle who was a lovely lady that has put a lot of thought, time and effort into making this accommodation so well equipped and comfortable.
Views are outstanding and the garden so welcoming and comfortable as we were so lucky with the exceptional weather.
Footsteps from the sea which was so inviting to cool down and Gary even had to rescue someone from the sea after he came into difficulty and was alerted to cries of help whilst sitting in the garden. Coastguard/ Annabelle took care of him once out of the sea.
Beautiful walk into Ventnor. Food in Spyglass , Ventnor, very good.
Cake and flowers upon arrival a lovely touch. Will definitely be returning and would like to bring my daughters.
Thank you Annabelle and look forward to seeing you on our next visit.
PS Mum really enjoyed it too and didn't want to go home

June 2017
Margaret, Ray, Ann, Lee, Lauren, Katelyn and of course our little Sophie the dog - Thank you Annabelle for a lovely relaxing week in your beautiful cottage, we have loved the wonderful sea view (the girls haven't had the tv on all week!) Everything was perfect-the best equipped and most comfortable holiday home we have ever stayed in. The yummy chocolate cake and lovely flowers were a very nice touch much appreciated. None of us want to go home and would love to come back again maybe next year. Thank you Annabelle for your hard work in making the cottage perfect.

May 2017
Bev, Paul, Amy, Jean, Ralph and Lucy the dog - Thank you for an amazing stay at Sea Shells by the Beach,a beautiful place to stay and relax. It's been lovely just seeing the the sea and the waves crashing in. We were even able to enjoy breakfast outside due to the lovely weather and take advantage of the deckchairs with a cheeky snooze in the afternoon. The cottage is so well equipped and very comfortable and spacious even with four adults, a four year old and a dog! Thanks for a great stay.

April 2017
Alicia, Paul, Jill and Mike and the dogs - Thank you for a warm welcome, lovely flat and the cake! We have had a great time here enjoying sitting in the garden listening to and watching the sea as well as all the fantastic places we have found for the first time, such as Steephill Cove and our favourites revisited. The flat is very comfortable and a great place to stay. Thank you again.

April 2017
Carolyn and Peter, Denise and David - What a wonderful place! We have been in a number of holiday homes over years in the IOW and this is one of the best. Sitting outside by the sea having breakfast was an absolute joy. We also appreciated all the 'little things' like flowers in our rooms, Easter eggs, the delicious Easter cake and everywhere the theme is 'sea and shells' from pictures on the walls and 'little things' hanging from door handles! It's no wonder you won a five star award - we would have given six! We had a most enjoyable family holiday and look forward to coming again.

April 2017
Nicki, Ben and Martin - Thank you for such a warm welcome,the cottage is perfect,you have thought of everything and everything is so lovely. We've had a wonderful time, the cake, the flowers, the Easter eggs were such a thoughtful touch. Thank you so much Annabelle.

March 2017
The MacDonald family - Thank you for our holiday at your lovely house. It was wonderful to wake up to see the sea each morning. The highlight of our week was Blackgang Chine, closely followed by the Steam Railway. Oh, and the house was great for hide and seek!

March 2017
Tina, Paul, Ema and Jenson - To lovely Annabelle, What a lovely lady and what a fantastic place,the dream of a place to stay. Everything you could wish for and more. Thank you and really hope to visit again.

December 2016
