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.

"The best property we have stayed in!"
My husband, sister in law, her husband and I stayed at this lovely cottage in February 2014. I had spent many hours online to try and find the 'right one' for a short break, and we weren… More
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.

"A November break"
I and my family enjoyed a marvelous few days based at Breakers Sound. What a perfect retreat with all the comforts of home and more. The weather was not great so we enjoyed the use of the log stove. Excellent food in Phileas Fogs in Ventnor and the Bonchurch inn. A beautiful cottage and the perfect base to explore the island.

"A super stay in a fantastic cottage"
I could not fault this cottage and it's gardens. The cottage has a classic cottage look with a big mature garden and great sea views. Inside, the cottage is homely, has all the mod cons, very clean and roomy. There is a small post office shop just down the road and Ventnor is only a couple of miles away. The service was friendly and efficient. I would definately recommend staying here.

Well what can I say, Stunning, Chocolate Box Pretty, Comfortable...............I could just go on and on. The pictures certainly do not do justice to this beautiful cottage. My husband and I stayed here for 1 week with our GSD and although we had terrible weather the cottage and it's grounds are so lovely we didn't want to stray far anyway. I have found it difficult to find a 'dog friendly' holiday let that is clean and well kept, you would not have known that the owners allow people to come along with their animals - the cottage was immaculate. We loved the area and the cottage so much we are already thinking about our return. Thank you once again Andrew for sharing your beautiful home with us.
