Ocean View is a Victorian terraced cottage which looks down over Ventnor Bay with living room, master bedroom and terrace all having fabulous sea views. With its sunlit simplicity the cottage serves equally well as a romantic hideaway or as a base for full-on bucket and spade holidays.

Ventnor beach, with it's Blue Flag for cleanliness and safety, is a few minutes away, as the crow flies, but with a zigzag route downhill, allow for a fifteen minute walk. If you prefer to drive, (avoiding the uphill walk home after a hard day on the beach), there are car parks either end of the Esplanade. Parking at the cottage is free and on-street, a few hundred yards along Ocean View Road.

The town center with its shops, (including butcher, baker, greengrocer, wine merchant and fishery for those who want a break from supermarket shopping!), pubs, cafes and restaurants is halfway between the cottage and the beach.

If you prefer to eat out, Ventnor has probably the best restaurant choice on the Isle of Wight, from fine dining at the Hillside and Royal Hotels to fresh fish on the beach at Steephill Cove where it's landed.

The cottage accommodates six people comfortably with it's three bedrooms, large family bathroom and downstairs cloakroom.

Upstairs are two double bedrooms, (one with a TV), and a bathroom which has bath, separate shower, washing machine, tumble dryer and boiler which provides instantaneous hot water and keeps the cottage lovely and toasty during the winter months.

Downstairs the kitchen, with a table which seats six, leads to the living room with comfy sofas. Here you'll find the TV with DVD player, books and games. The third (bunk) bedroom is also on the ground floor, as is the WC with wash basin.

Outdoors there is a small but perfectly formed graveled terrace with table and seating for maximum enjoyment of the view. It's enclosed with a picket fence making it safe for young children and pets.

The Style of the interior is 'shabby chic' with white wooden floors and cream leather sofas. Although there's a cosy vintage vibe, we don't subscribe to the old holiday cottage ethos of equipping the place with kit long passed its prime and leaving cobwebs to 'add to the charm'. At Ocean View you'll (hopefully) find everything you'd expect at home from cafetiere to steam iron, all scrupulously clean and well maintained. There's also a travel cot and high chair to cater for the smaller guest.

The Isle of Wight region

Sun

It's official – we get more of it! Ventnor's position on the Southern tip of the Island means that we have a micro climate – our Botanic Gardens being able to grow species which couldn't survive elsewhere.

The lack of pollution here also means that those rays aren't filtered by any city grot, so bump up the sun screen protection factor!

Sea

There are facilities on the Island for virtually every water sport going, (with the possible exclusion of giant banana riding) with Cowes being internationally renowned for sailing and powerboat racing (and also pretty good for shopping).

Cowes Week takes place every year in August with the JP Morgan Round the Island Race ensuring thousands of boats sail past Ventnor in June.

Kids

Isle of Wight Zoo (TV's Tiger Isle); Donkey Sanctuary; Blackgang Chine; Dinosaur Isle; Amazon World; the Isle of Wight Steam Railway; Lobster Safari; Brading Roman Villa, the list goes on.

Culture

Osborne House – Queen Victoria's favourite home; Dimbola Lodge, Julia Margaret Cameron's house, now a photographic museum and gallery; Quay Arts – the Island's main cultural arts centre; Farringford – Tennyson's home; Carisbrooke Castle; Quarr Abbey are just some places on the Island where you can get your cultural fix.

Walks

The Isle of Wight has some 500 miles of footpaths and bridleways and 60 miles of breathtaking Heritage Coast. Almost half the Island is categorised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and within that are many Sites of Special Scientific Interest. It's almost a crime not to make the most of it.

Events

Music venues – from pubs to grand theatres – abound with the calendar peaking in June for the Isle of Wight Festival and September for Bestival.

Ventnor itself plays host to the annual Isle of Arts Festival as well as the Ventnor Fringe Festival.

The Isle of Wight Walking Festival takes place in May whilst the Cycling Festival happens each September.

And last but not least, there's a very active carnival season on the Island every summer with Ventnor's very own carnival taking place in August.

Don't forget your fancy dress!

Ventnor

Ventnor is situated at the southern most tip of the, (roughly diamond-shaped), Isle of Wight. Being built on terraces around the natural amphitheatre of Ventnor Bay, most of the town enjoys fabulous sea views out across the English Channel.

Ventnor's hay day was in Victorian times. Attracted by the mild climate and the fashion for 'health giving' sea bathing, the well to do built splendid villas and mini manor houses. Huge numbers of visitors arrived by train or by pleasure boats which stopped at the pier. The railway and pier may be long gone but the beach's trademark candy-coloured huts are the original Victorian bathing machines, wheels removed!

In more recent times, Ventnor has been described by the British press as 'the hippest hub on the island' but that just means it has something for everyone – from bucket and spade fun on the child-friendly beach to Michelin starred fine dining.

Pubs and café's are plentiful and for those wishing to make the most of their self-catering holiday home there is excellent local produce available in Ventnor's independent shops which include a butcher, fishery, deli, greengrocer and wine merchant. The town also has more antiques and vintage shops than anywhere else on the island.

Things to do

There are stunning coastal walks from Ventnor beach – East along the sea wall towards Bonchurch and West, over the cliffs, towards Steephill Cove where you can eat crab and lobster just a few yards from where it has been landed.

Northwards, up on the Downs behind the town, you can enjoy breathtaking panoramic views from the highest vantage point on the island.

Bike hire is available locally and boat trips from Ventnor Haven include a 'lobster safari'. There's also an angling club and a twelve hole golf course in Ventnor.

August is Carnival time, happening in tandem with the Ventnor Fringe Festival.

Places to visit

Ventnor Botanic Garden enjoys an international reputation and, because of the micro- climate, grows species not grown elsewhere in the UK.

In Ventnor itself there are two museums which, although small, have fascinating photographic records of the area – The Heritage Museum and the Longshoreman's Museum.

Just a few miles along the coast is Blackgang Chine, a friendly little amusement park, great for young children. It's an eccentric mix of rides, fairies and dinosaurs, all perched on ever diminishing cliff top gardens.

Going inland from Ventnor you'll find historic Appledurcombe House and the Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary.

Weather

Travel

Car ferries run from Portsmouth, Southampton and Lymington on the mainland to Fishbourne, Cowes and Yarmouth on the island.

The train from London Waterloo links directly to the Fastcat passenger ferry from Portsmouth to Ryde Pier where the train connects to Shanklin – a short bus or taxi ride from Ventnor. A Hovercarft also makes the Portmouth to Ryde crossing.

Southampton is the nearest airport.

Very many thanks for taking the time to leave a review.
Just to clarify a couple of points - new double glazed, soundproofed windows are going in middle bedroom & bathroom this winter (as will a new kitchen downstairs).
Also re. position of bunk room - it is stipulated that it's on ground floor in all my listings. I also make this point again when taking bookings from young families. Babies and toddlers are catered for with a travel cot in upper bedrooms where necessary.

"Beautiful cottage with stunning views"

The cottage was very well presented with stunning views. Everything was immaculate and the main bedroom was very comfortable. Debby has obviously put a lot of thought into the decor of the cottage.

Very many thanks for taking the time to review Ocean View - it helps other guests enormously.
Kind regards,
Debby

"Lovely cottage in a spectacular setting"

This cottage lived up entirely to its billing. Comfortable and very clean, slightly quirky in a nice sense, topped by wonderful views out to sea. Debby was extremely efficient, accommodating and helpful- the ideal house owner. Ventnor is an enjoyable place and wonderful for getting or keeping fit, particularly if the walk down to town and back is attempted. All in all a really enjoyable holiday with the cottage making a significant contribution to that.

"Glorious Views"

We had a lovely stay in Ventnor and loved the cottage. Views were unbelivable and the property unbelievably clean. It felt like we were the first to stay in the property. The owner Debby is very knowledgable and all of her recommendations were spot on. We hope to return soon.

"Sea views that lift you out of yourself."

The views from the living room and south bedroom windows, high up on the hill, out over the sea are breathtaking. Inside; the house is warm and comfortable. Cream leather sofas, comfy bed, excellent shower and bath.
Debby's attention to detail and service are first rate, she responds positively, happily and quickly to any question or request.
Sorry to repeat myself but the views are just so distracting, I found it difficult to walk past a window without standing and staring out.
Highly recommended.

"Ocean House - a house with a truly amazing view!"

This is a very clean and stylish house with the most amazing sea view we have ever seen. Extremely comfortable beds and all the facilities we could wish for. Easy walking distance from Ventnor and local beaches and coves.

Friendly landlady lives close by and can easily be contacted should the need arise.
