Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 3
'Seashells' epitomises beach side living, with spectacular sea views from almost every room. We chose it particularly for its warm and welcoming ambience and perfect location. Recently refurbished, this relaxing apartment should provide all you need for three people in cosy comfort. .
This versatile accommodation could suit a romantic getaway, or equally a small family beach holiday complete with buckets and spades.
Ventnor is the quintessential Victorian seaside resort and is said to be one of the sunniest spots on the Island, with a long sandy coastline. it's a great place to catch some rays without the need for airport taxes!

The Isle of Wight region
The Isle of Wight is a county and the largest island of England, located in the English Channel, 3–5 miles (5–8 km) off the south coast of the county of Hampshire. The island is known for its natural beauty, its sailing and its resorts, which have been holiday destinations since Victorian times.
It was home to the poet Alfred Lord Tennyson, and to Queen Victoria, who built her much loved summer residence and final home Osborne House here. It is home to the Isle of Wight International Jazz Festival, Bestival and the recently-revived Isle of Wight Festival, which, in 1970, was the largest rock music event ever held. The Island has some exceptional wildlife and is one of the richest locations of dinosaur fossils in Europe.
Ventnor is the quintessential Victorian seaside town with a Mediterranean feel, and is one of the sunniest spots on the Isle of Wight. Built on a series of terraces beneath St. Boniface Down the town's roads zigzag down to the sea past the beautifully planted cascades. The town boasts a variety of bars, cafes, restaurants, tea rooms, and independent shops, combining age-old elegance with a blend of shabby-chic quirkiness.
The seafront enjoys a surprisingly mild climate due to sheltering cliffs and southerly aspect. The Esplanade has a part sand, part fine shingle beach, good for sunbathing and swimming and adjacent to pubs, cafes, amusements, paddling pool and seafront car park.
Ventnor is a step back in time to those memorable days out we all enjoyed at a great British seaside destination.
