Property code: IC145

Charming clock tower, part of a converted stable block, sleeping two adult guests in a delightful two-storey cottage in the pretty seaside town of Ventnor, a short walk from the popular sandy beach.

This attractive property overlooks the gardens of Ventnor Park and boasts glimpses of the sea from the sitting room. It is within a ten-minute walk of the beach at Ventnor and also of the town centre. This is a spectacular coastal area, and a pleasant walk through the gardens leads to the small esplanade of Ventnor, a quaint seaside resort. The quiet bay is ideal for swimming and paddling. Visitors can also walk directly from the property to join the coastal path, and the walk westwards quickly leads to the nearby Ventnor Botanical Garden and the picture-postcard coastal village of Steephill Cove. The Clock Tower is part of the original stables of Steephill Castle. It has an ancient stone structure which has been carefully renovated into five very individual small cottages.

As the name suggests this property occupies the central upper tower and enjoys panoramic views across Ventnor Park gardens with the sea beyond. An external staircase leads up to a small balcony and the entrance to The Clock Tower which is completely self contained. The property has been furnished and equipped with care to provide comfortable accommodation for two people. The double doors at the entrance open directly into a large open plan sitting room with a Chesterfield sofa, arm chair, television with Freeview, Smart TV and DVD player, plus a wood burning stove. There is a welcoming dining area and a country style kitchen equipped with an electric cooker and hob, microwave and refrigerator with small freezer section. A 24 hour laundry service is also available.

There is a separate bedroom with a double bed and fitted wardrobe, plus a shower room with a walk in shower, basin and W.C. The property is centrally heated and electricity and heating is at no extra charge. A wooden staircase leads up to a mezzanine in the upper part of the tower, however visitors should not access this area for safety reasons as there are low balustrades. A WiFi connection is available at no extra charge. The Clock Tower has a small, sunny balcony area and its own courtyard style garden at ground level with a table and chairs for enjoying meals outside. Visitors can stop to unload their car close to the external staircase leading up to the property, and longer term parking is available in the private open courtyard at the front of the properties - only a one-minute walk away. There is a regular bus service within two minutes walk. This links with Shanklin railway station for Ryde ferry and trains to London.

Please note there is a refundable £100 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Cosy flat with lovely warm heating and log fire to keep warm in the evenings.Would highly recommend a stroll down the costal path to the spyglass pub. Lovely food and atmosphere. Couldnt fault our stay as it had everything we needed. Would recommend for couples who wish to have a relaxing and romantic get away.

This is a listed building that was once the stables for a now demolished castle. It is quite old fashioned with has a large kitchen /diner/ lounge area. It is full of antique furniture and nick nacks. The two seater settee is not comfortable however the single arm chair is. The kitchen is reasonable well equipped however the build quality of the stRead moreripped pine units is questionable. There is an efficient water heating system. Good location halfway between Ventnor and Steephill Cove. Hide

Nicely furnished house, 5 minutes walk from the sea. It is just behind a hill, so you just don't see the sea. If you enjoy walking, take the westerly direction. Fantastic beautiful route where you come across surprises one after the other. Had a wonderful week

A nice quirky holiday cottage, lots of interesting items. The accommodation is basic which seems to be the way with holiday Cottages. The kitchen equipment is adequate which is important for self catering. The bathroom is smaller than the photograph suggests. Overall not a bad cottage.

We enjoyed our stay in the Clock Tower, it was a few minutes walk into Ventnor and the parking was good in the courtyard, we could easily reach other parts of the island by car and bus. We liked the quirkiness of the property, with unusual pictures and ornaments.

We absolutely loved it and would come back again. It was a nice walk, either by road or coastal path to the town centre. The people of Ventnor were amazingly friendly and we got to know some of the retailers/pub owners even though we were only there a week.
