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.
The Ventnor area
A Victorian town with a Mediterranean feel, Ventnor is one of the sunniest spots on the Island. 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 seafront enjoys a surprisingly mild climate due to sheltering cliffs and southerly aspect. The Western 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 attractions include:
- Esplanade (beach, amusements, paddling pool, cafes, restaurants)
- Various coastal walks
- Organised boat trips
- Surfing & watersports
- Donkey Sanctuary
- Fishery & Yacht Haven
- Golf course
- IoW Studio Glass
- Maritime & smuggling museums
- Botanic Gardens & Park

We had a really good time staying in Seashells over Easter holiday.
Perfect location, fantastic views from our apartment, great pubs and coffee places near by.
The only disadvantage can be parking as there is only 2 spaces for 3 apartments. We were very lucky as one of the neighbours allowed us to park next to their property, otherwise we would have to leave the car by the sea front and that would be additional cost as from 1 st April parking is not free of charge.

My Wife and I stayed at this wonderful flat after the New Year. Having stayed on the Isle of Wight previously, and particulary enjoying Ventnor, we knew this was the area we wanted to stay, and we were not disappointed!
Getting here was no issue and getting inside the flat was easy, as clear instructions had previously been e-mailed by the owner.
The flat is lovely and spacious, with ample room for the 2 of us.
The view from the living room window is wonderful, with uninteruppted views accross the channel.
Although very quiet in January (just as we like it; we've previously ventured here in peak season and parking can be difficult), the Spyglass Inn pub is open and is lterally a 2 minute walk away. This serves great food at sensible prices. Not that eating in was any hardship, as great cooking facilities are offered
The only downside I would say would be parking. 2 spaces are offered for 3 - 4 flats, and is strictly on a 1st come, 1st served basis. This wasn't problem to us, as even when the spaces were occupied, parking on the sea front was available FOC. The only time I could see it being an issue is in the summer months when parking is at a premium
We had a great week and will definately return again and would recommend this gem of a property to anyone
