A Victorian seaside town with a Mediterranean feel, Ventnor is one of the sunniest spots on the island. Built on a series of terraces beneath St Bonchurch Down the town's roads zigzag down to the sea past the beautifully planted cascade.

Over the past years Ventnor has become a very popular resort with the introduction of new wine bars, fine dining and fabulous properties.

The esplanade has a sand and shingle beach ideal for swimming, sunbathing or walking. Adjacent to the beach you will find pubs & cafes who offer locally caught sea food. Watch the boats leave from the harbour and return with the day's catch from the beach front cafes and The Spyglass Inn.

Thank you so much for your lovely review of Breakers Sound. It is always so reassuring to receive glowing reports as so much time and effort is put into making the cottage a home from home for guests to enjoy. Look forward to welcoming you back again to Breakers Sound at some point on the future. Kind regards Andrew

"Absolutely beautiful cottage to spend a holiday!"

This cottage is a stunning place to have a holiday.
It had a real home from home feel with everything in the cottage one would need.
Harry the Golden Retriever enjoyed it too having so much space to chase his ball in the garden.
We are responsible dog owners and took on all the rules laid down for a dog to visit this cottage.
If every pet owner treats holiday properties with respect this is what allows owners to accomadate a pet in their holiday lets.
