Little Melville is a self-contained annex of a Grand Victorian Villa set in attractive gardens. Melville Lodge, built in 1876 of Island stone, is situated within Victorian Ventnor's area of outstanding beauty & coastal conservation area. The property is a few minutes walk to Ventnor centre, esplanade, beaches, shops, and restaurants.

Opposite is Ventnor's award winning park with putting green, stream and bandstand. From April through the summer months live jazz is played at the bandstand each Sunday. A gentle walk through the park leads to the cliffs, with panoramic walks - left to Ventnor beach and onto Bonchurch, or right to quaint Steephill Cove with it's lovely beach and cafés. A small walk will take you to the Botanical Gardens, which due to Ventnor's warm and sunny micro-climate, is famous for it's exotic plants and is well worth a visit.

For walkers there are picturesque cliff top walks to Niton, St. Catherine's point and beyond. Also, Ventnor Downs is at the top of the town connecting to St. Boniface Downs with magnificent views.
