On entering the property, you will find a cosy lounge which is ideal for relaxing in front of the open fire after a long day exploring. You will also find a charming kitchen/diner which is perfect for preparing your favourite meals, grabbing a snack or sitting round the breakfast table by the woodburner to plan the day. Family meals can be celebrated in the attractive formal dining room which offers a beautiful sea view and has been stylishly decorated and furnished. There are four bedrooms including a ground-floor king-size room which can be made in to a twin on request. Going upstairs there are three further bedrooms, all with sea views: a super-king-size room, a double room which can be a twin on request and a double room with a single bed and an additional pull-out bed available on request. Outside you can unwind in the steeply terraced garden which features a decked area with outdoor furniture, providing the ideal spot for enjoying a BBQ or a morning coffee while admiring the stunning views. There is off road parking for two to three cars.

The cottage is less than a mile from Ventnor, which is famous for its beautiful beach, traditional promenade and historic harbour. Ventnor offers a wealth of great restaurants, pubs and shops, as well as attractions including the Botanic Gardens. Heading north you can visit the Amazon World Zoo (6 miles), the Isle of Wight Zoo (7 miles) and Shanklin Beach (4 miles).

The joys of Ventnor lay just beyond your door. Explore local pubs and shops less than a mile away. Behind the property stretch the St Boniface Downs, a lush area of chalk hills. Set off on an inspiring walk before breakfast and take in some of the majestic natural history of the island. Walk through the town to find Ventnor Botanic Garden 2.5 miles away, a glorious cliff-edge display of exotic plants. Pack up your beach towel — a mile’s stroll will bring you to Ventnor Beach. Or head down to Monks Bay, a half-mile stretch of unspoilt cove named after French monks who landed there from Normandy. Beyond Ventnor, venture along the coast or inland to explore the Isle of Wight in your own way. Take a 16-mile trip to the opposite corner of the island to discover Cowes, a historic port town, and watch the sailing boats go by.

We really liked this house. It is very spacious, plenty of soft seating plus kitchen and dining room for eating in. I found the hill to the house quite steep as we don't have a car, but there is enough room off road for two cars. Has sea views and also, woodland to the rear which is accessible. There is also the 'ww2 radar station' to the rear of tRead morehe house, but it is a very steep walk. It is a 10 minute walk into Ventnor, but is on a regular bus route. Good access to all areas of the Island. Hide

A lovely rustic house. Really nice rooms, all a great size, high ceilings, log burners, we stayed 5 adults and 2 young children and all had a great time! Drive really only for 2 cars and a bit dodgy getting in and out. House smelt a bit musty when we first went in but that soon cleared once we got settled. Lovely beds, very clean. Would recommend.
