The Bothy was the ostler's home for a larger Georgian estate which was divided up in the 50's. We are part of the coach house, stables, and gardener's cottage complex. One enters the property from Sandrock Road between large stone pillars (our gates are situated on the left just before the fork in the road). The driveway leads into the courtyard and holiday cottages. There is secure parking in the cobbled yard. The garden is approximately a third of an acre and has lovely views of both country and sea. We are situated in a very convenient position to get to many sights of interest, for example, Ventnor Botanical Gardens, Blackgang Chine and numerous wonderful walks.

The Isle of Wight region
The Island is a very beautiful place to visit and live, with lots of activities to do, places to see, views to look at, seaside and country walks, towns and villages to fit every requirement. We are situated in the Niton Undercliff which has its own micro climate with lush vegetation and the lovely Ventnor Botanical Gardens. A very historic Island, from pre-Roman to Victorian times and on, there is much to see and do, from grand houses to Roman villas, castles to modern day activities.
Ventnor is a beautiful Victorian Town and seafront with a safe sandy beach nestling at the foot of St.Boniface Down. The town has a variety of restaurants and eating places to suit all tastes, and there is a gorgeous walk on the flat beside the sea from Ventnor to Monks Bay, Bonchurch. A road leads through the Undercliff to Niton Undercliff, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. There are many footpaths for exploring this area that include St.Catherine's Lighthouse and Castle Haven Bay with its many local fishing boats. For a refreshing rest the Buddle Inn is ideal for a drink or a meal. Local activities include walking, swimming, para-gliding, fossil hunting and many more. Blackgang Chine with its popular theme park is only approx. one and a half miles away.
