A Victorian town with a Mediterranean feel, Ventnor is one of the sunniest spots on the Island, thanks to its sheltered southerly aspect.

Ventnor is built on a series of terraces that zig-zag down to the sun-trap seafront with part sand part fine shingle beach. Here you will find beach cafés, pubs, amusements, paddling pool, car parks and Ventnor Haven Marina.

Stroll along the sea wall to Bonchurch, the Island's best preserved Victorian village, with pretty cottages, village pond and the tiny 11th Century Old Church of St Boniface. Bonchurch has a sheltered mainly pebbly beach, with adjacent cafés and studio pottery.

Westwards from the Esplanade, the coastal path leads to Ventnor Park, with its delightful gardens and putting green, and on to Steephill Cove. Here a path leads up to the 22 acre Botanic Gardens, a sub-tropical paradise with Mediterranean terrace, a Temperate House and Visitor Centre with passenger lift to the gardens.

Golf: Ventnor Golf Club is 2 miles from property. Visitors are welcome.

Comfortable family home in great location

  • 5 of 5

We all loved the house, especially our grandchildren who had great fun in the garden and playhouse. The toys, videos and books kept them amused on our one rainy day. Bonchurch is a charming village and the beach at Monksbay was a real find - often having it to ourselves. There is so much to do in this part of the island for all ages.

We would recommend the walk along the coast path through The Landslip to the tea rooms at Luccombe Chine - an adventure for children with the bonus of a good tea at the end for the adults in a beautiful setting.

Ideal family home, pefect for a holiday home

  • 5 of 5

It was a perfect home for an extended family of 7, parents, children of 8, 6 and 4 years, and grandparents. The house gave us all the facilities we needed and we were very comfortable. One very minor problem was very quickly resolved.

A good garden to enjoy but unfortunately weather didn't give us the chance to enjoy all it to the full.

Situated within access of all the beaches and places we wanted to visit.

Recommended.

The kids didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely stunning, lovely lounges and lovely garden. 400m away from Ventnor highstreet, meaning it's only a short stroll to the shops and bars...and beach!

The kids didn't want to leave, and nor did the adults.

Would 100% come back 10/10
