This delightful first floor apartment comprises the entire upper floor of a traditional house, and has its own private garden. It’s just a 10 minute walk from Ventnor beach.

Upper Garden Lodge is tucked away in the Victorian coastal town of Ventnor on the South coast of the Isle of Wight and was formerly the coachman's cottage for Steephill Castle. Adjacent to Upper Garden Lodge is Ventnor Park - a lovely park of lawns and gardens with footpaths linking to the coastal path. The property is within a ten-minute walk of Ventnor beach and beautiful bay. A short walk westwards also leads to the quiet beach of Steephill Cove and Ventnor Botanical Garden. There is a fairly level walk to the centre of Ventnor which has a variety of small shops, restaurants, wine bars and entertainment.

Set in a lovely location, this first floor apartment comprises the entire upper floor of a traditional stone built house which has been divided to form two completely self contained properties with private gardens. Upper Garden Lodge has been renovated and equipped to a high standard to provide exceptionally attractive accommodation with garden views, and also glimpses of the sea from the smaller bedroom. It is centrally heated and furnished in a traditional style.

The front door opens into a private hall with a staircase leading up to a charming sitting room boasting a Chesterfield sofa and armchair in front of a feature fireplace, along with a flat screen television with Sky, Freeview and a DVD player. Guests can also enjoy a bright, open-plan fitted kitchen and dining area with views of the park. The fitted kitchen is equipped with an electric oven, gas hob, microwave, refrigerator with ice box and washing machine. There is a shower room with basin and a separate W.C. plus two charming bedrooms; a double bedroom and a spacious single room (2ft 6ins bed). Please be aware that the access to the single bedroom is fairly narrow. Central heating and electricity is without extra charge.

Upper Garden Lodge has a fairly large lawned garden at the front of the property where alfresco meals can be enjoyed on warm summer evenings. Garden furniture is provided. A car can be parked in the gated courtyard at the side of the cottage. A regular bus service is 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.

Beautiful comfortable cottage, friendly and welcoming landlord. Would definitely stay here again.

We found the accommodation to be clean and the location was fantastic. But the lack of comforts (seating and bed) and no basic items in kitchen (tea, Milk, Salt, pepper) or welcome pack let it down. 3.5 out of 5

Reviewed by Lynn Williams December 2016

The setting is really quite idyllic. We slept so well in the comfy bed and quiet surroundings. The access to the coastal walk, beach and Ventnor Botanic Gardens Is right on the doorstep. This property is beautifully presented and the property description accurate.

We love the Isle of Wight and Upper Garden Lodge provided a great base to get around the Island. Within easy walking distance of the town, beach, paddling pool, bars, restaurants and coastal path the property is well located and ideal for a family holiday on the Isle of Wight.
