This is a lovely, old fashioned and quirky cottage but nonetheless spacious and very well equipped with all mod - cons for a family including children. A perfect location in the park for the children, with an easy walk to Ventnor shops and prom as well as the botanical gardens and Steephill Cove.

We loved the house. The stained glass windows are divine. the added touches of a bottle of wine/apple juice/flapjacks on arrival so thoughtful. It's big enough for a family of six which we are and there is plenty of space to sit downstairs or watch TV/read upstairs. Gorgeous location in the park. You do feel like you are staying somewhere special. Read moreWell equipped kitchen and plenty of hot water. Gorgeous walks along the cliff and easy walk to nearest shops. Hide

Fantastic lodge in great surroundings. Loved the ease of walk into Ventnor and down to the sea. Lodge was lovely and comfortable and cosy. The old features were a lovely touch to the property. I loved all the unusual stained glass. Would stay here again.
