Lovely quirky cottage. Pleasant walk into the centre of Ventnor but coming back uphill might be a problem for the less fit.

Overall this a very nice cottage. It is very close to Ventnor town centre and we enjoyed the walk passing Ventnor Park.

A characterful property, with fairly basic amenities, in a good position for walking into Ventnor. The coastal path is easily accessible from it too. Convenient to have the car parked right outside.

Nice enough cottage. Towels and linen were clean but needs some attention to details. We would not return.

A lovely cottage so comfy we felt at home immediately. Situated in a very quiet area but close to all the amenities which in themselves were excellent.

Heating put on before our arrival was much appreciated as weather was a bit chilly even though it was mid April. The cottage was very quaint with lots of character. The little outdoor area was very sheltered, a little sun trap! Lovely location.
