With a bit more attention to detail, like less cobwebs, The plugs to the basins being attached to the chains & some instruction on the heating & hot water we would have given the property 5 stars on all points.

Very atmospheric and quirky self catering accommodation. Excellent proximity to the coastal path and the beautiful 'Ventnor Park'. Good location for access to all roads for venturing the island.

There were so many things I liked about this rather quirky cottage. The central heating could be controlled by thermostat, the skylights bring wonderful light into the space both in the bedroom and the double volume living space. The small south facing sunporch is a lovely area. Cottage Rating: 5 Stars

Our stay in Castle Cottage was outstanding, a really beautiful, cosy cottage in a gorgeous location with parking. We stayed at Christmas and really appreciated the little extras provided such as a small Christmas tree, crackers, mints, wine and a card. I cannot fault anything. Can't wait to go back.

Castle cottage is restful, comfortable, well-appointed and tastefully decorated. We appreciated the quiet courtyard location.

With a bit more attention to detail, like less cobwebs, The plugs to the basins being attached to the chains & some instruction on the heating & hot water we would have given the property 5 stars on all points. We did however have a lovely stay & would recommend Ventnor & the cottage. Cottage Rating: 5 Stars

South Isle of Wight Information

The South of the Isle of Wight is a wonderful mix of pretty beaches and dramatic coastal landscape. The sand and shingle beach at Ventnor is one of the more popular holiday locations but hidden gems such as Bonchurch and Steephill Cove are really worth a visit too.

The coastal path around the South Coast of the Isle of Wight is a particularly beautiful stretch to explore and passes a number of attractive sites which include Steephill Cove, Orchard Bay and St Catherine's Light House at Niton Undercliff. Some of this area has been prone to erosion so you must stick to the footpath and take heed of diversions.

Inland one finds a beautiful rural area with high downs from which panoramic views can be enjoyed. A Botanical garden at Ventnor takes advantage of a warm micro climate found in this part of the Island. View more South Isle of Wight Cottages
