Find cottages in VentnorVisit Ventnor

Ventnor is a lovely seaside resort that was established in Victorian times as a health and tourist resort due to its sunny microclimate and sheltered south coast location. Today it's lost none of its charm and provides a good choice for a cottage break by the sea.

The island's microclimate has allowed a number of subtropical plants to thrive in the area and the Ventnor Botanic Garden, located on the former site of the Royal National Hospital for Diseases of the Chest (not many people know that), is particularly noteworthy for those interested in flora.

Britain's largest colony of the common wall lizard lives on Ventnor's town walls (not many people know that either) and a special habitat has been established for the lizard in the Botanic Garden. The Cascade Gardens, from the early 1900s, is a beautiful garden with a waterfall that ends as a paddling pool on the seafront.

Other attractions include Ventnor Park, with its aviary, bandstand, stream and putting green, Ventnor Brewery, and RAF Ventnor. In town the many antique and bric-a-brac shops in the main shopping area have become a tourist attraction in their own right.

The town's location on unstable underlying clay and a geological fault known as the Graben is the subject of displays at the Isle of Wright Coastal Visitors Centre, but don't worry visitors will be safe! 'The Landslip' is a nearby Site of Special Scientific Interest.

Ventnor is located on the Isle of Wight Coastal Path, and it is a beautiful place for which to find a leisurely walk or cycle tracks. Annual events include the Ventnor Fringe Festival and the Ventnor Carnival, each August.

There are many beautiful Ventnor holiday cottages. Book one today and experience its unique atmosphere for yourself.

Woodlands Ref: PZH

Woodlands, a well furnished and equipped property, commands spectacular sea views, and is set in a resort with a climate mild enough to attract visitors almost all year round. Charming, this Grade II listed Victorian villa was built in 1842, and boasts a 1/3 of an acre walled garden.
Detached, it is just half a mile from Ventnor – a largely unspoilt Victorian seaside resort, where attractions include the Botanical Gardens and several museums. Nestling beneath the 800 ft
St Boniface Downs, this small town is built on a series of terraces and is protected by steep surrounding hills, with its roads zig-zagging down to a sandy beach; Woodlands is perched on the edge of one of these terraces commanding uninterrupted views of the English Channel from the garden and every room.
In addition to Blackgang Chine and the coloured sands of Alum Bay, there is a vast array of attractions within a 30-minute drive. There are local, as well as island-wide, facilities for tennis, golf and riding, and miles of spectacular cliff and downland walks. Two Heritage Coast footpaths follow the best of the shoreline, one running from Totland to St Lawrence on the south coast, the other from east of Yarmouth to west of Cowes along the north coast, each taking in a surprising variety of landscapes and coastal scenery.
For formal dining, the Royal Hotel, where Queen Victoria occasionally took afternoon tea, is just 200 yards away. Only a 5-minute walk to the sandy beach, with its small boat slipway and haven, and close to the heart of the town – where promenade pubs serve locally-caught fresh fish dishes, it is perfectly placed for an Isle holiday. Shops 3/4 miles.

Entrance hall. Living room with coal-effect gas fire and French doors to conservatory and garden. Dining room. Well-equipped modern fitted kitchen with breakfast area and terracotta-tiled floor. Utility/laundry room. Bathroom with over-bath shower, bidet and toilet. First floor: Three double bedrooms, one with balcony. Bathroom with over-bath shower, bidet and toilet.
