Property Description

Shop, pub and restaurant 300 yards.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. A really nice cottage tucked away in Ventnor with lovely beach 5 mins walk (although down a very steep hill!) away. All mod cons and lovely touches like provision of consumables on arrival. No parking but the was not a problem with a car park very close and on street parking available 4pm - 9:30am. Weather very windy but seemingly much better than elsewhere in the UK! Really enjoyed our stay! May 2012.
  2. Lovely cosy cottage, well equipped with lovely comfy beds. Quiet location but convenient for the centre of Ventnor and the beach. Parking is a bit of an issue (if you arrive back at 4pm you will probably manage free on street parking otherwise it is a pay and display car park). Don’t risk leaving the car in the bus bay during the day, we saw several cars with tickets! March 2012.
  3. Very clean and comfortable. Milk, orange juice, tea etc, provided, plus bottle of bubbly! Oct 2011.
  4. Beautiful, characterful, tasteful and comfy little house. Hidden from the main road so parking was a couple of minutes’ walk away. Lots of little extra touches (like a fresh bottle of milk and some teabags!) that made it very easy to settle straight in. Although the house is pet-friendly, there isn’t a private garden. Sept 2011.
