This quaint cottage is attractively situated within a ten-minute stroll of the beach of Ventnor or the quiet cove of Steephill on the south coast of the Island.

These gardens also adjoin the Botanical Garden of Ventnor which is renowned for its rare plants and the mild climate. The Clock House is one of a small group of cottages which have been converted from the original stables of Steephill Castle.

A door leads from the bedroom into a Victorian conservatory with a tiled floor, and French doors lead from here into the garden. There is a spacious bathroom with a deep Victorian bath with ball and claw feet, a built in shower, sink and W.C, plus a dressing room area with wardrobes.

The cottage has an open plan kitchen and dining area with a stunning bay window, with leaded lights and comfortable seating. The kitchen boasts a large pine dresser and is equipped with a gas cooker, microwave, refrigerator with freezer section and washing machine. There is a welcoming sitting room where visitors can relax on sofas in front of an open fire during colder weather. This room also has a flat screen television. BT Infinity Wifi connection is at no extra charge.

French doors open onto a south-facing walled garden, complete with pond and garden furniture at the rear of the cottage. There is a folding bed for a child and a high chair available.

We loved the cottage and happily stay at the Clock House again. The house had real character, very spacious, with a beautiful garden backing onto Ventnor park. You can walk onto the coastal path from the back of the house. We also walk to Ventnor Botanical Gardens from the house. Perfect location to explore the island.

Fantastic from start to finish. Brilliant communication all through the process. The clock house was ideal for us, close enough to ventnor and yet tucked away. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone. Many thanks

The location of The Clock House is peaceful with a lovely conservatory & tranquil private garden to the rear. The owner is a congenial gentleman - nothing is too much trouble. The shops & eateries are only a 5 min cycle or 10 min walk away. Brilliant Holiday destination.
