Located on the southeast coast of the Isle of Wight and enjoying fantastic sea views, this lovely stone and flint house is just a short walk from the centre of the charming seaside resort of Ventnor.

This lovely flint and stone house enjoys sea views from its elevated position in the seaside resort of Ventnor, on the south-east coast of the Isle of Wight. It is south facing and within walking distance of the town centre and the beach. Ventnor is an attractive seaside resort with a range of interesting shops, restaurants, public houses, wine bars and charming gardens. It has a secluded beach where swimming, paddling and fishing can be enjoyed. Fresh fish can be purchased daily from the harbour. Visitors may also enjoy strolling through Ventnor gardens and the renowned Ventnor Botanical Garden. There is a lovely coastal walk linking Ventnor with Shanklin and there are beautiful downland walks further inland. The larger sandy beaches of Sandown and Shanklin are within a ten-minute drive.

Huish House was built in 1866 by Captain Mark Huish, and stands at the end of a small terrace of similar stone and flint houses. The property provides comfortable accommodation for six people in three bedrooms and ranges over four floors.

Here, there is a sitting room with sea views, a large corner sofa, wood burning stove and television with Sky Family Plus, Freeview and a Blu-Ray DVD player; a separate dining room with feature fire place.

Excellent house with everything you need whilst away. Nice quiet area, the road is near but not lots of traffic. Comfortable bed and lovely sea views. Handy bus stops just out side, easy way to see the island. Yes there are lots of steps, but it is a house over 4 floors.

Reviewed by Margaret 10th August 2019

Cottage was very well equipped and clean. Lovely furniture and comfortable beds. Perhaps stairs could be mentioned as there are a lot. Good bus service close by.
