About the Area

An excellent local pub and restaurant is literally five minutes walk away in Bonchurch, also close by is the local convenience store. Ventnor is full of good pubs and restaurants, along with Somerfield who will deliver to the house (details can be found in store), antique, bric-a-brac and junk shops. You can spend many hours rummaging!!! The best bit about Ventnor is its micro climate and narrow streets. This has two advantages, very warm weather and now big coach parties!

The beaches and coastal paths of Ventnor are ten minute walk away and the resort of old Shanklin is 3 miles away. One of the Islands top attractions Appuldercombe house situated in gardens designed by Capability Brown are only a short drive away, together with the owl and falconry centre.

Ventnor

Walking

With over 500 of miles of signposted footpaths and vast amounts of unrivalled natural beauty, it is no surprise that the Isle of Wight is a top UK walking destination. The astounding diversity in such a small relative area coupled with the mild climate makes the island a great year round walking spot

Carmel is set on the Coastal footpath which circumnavigates the island. Check out isleofwightwalkingfestival.co.uk.

Cycling

Whether on or off road, the island is a great location for cyclists of all ages and abilities. The cycle track running from Sandown to Cowes has proved highly popular since its opening in 2004. There is also an extensive network of quiet lanes and way marked bridleways giving cyclists access to all 4 corners of the island. Check out cyclewight.org.uk for suggested routes and upcoming events.

Watersports

Miles of diverse coastline provides heaps of opportunity for a real mixed bag of water sports. WightWater is the island's top water sports centre. Offering a range of activities from surfing and bodyboarding to catamaran and dingy sailing to canoeing and windsurfing. Wightwater is on the beach at Lake and caters for all abilities from total beginner to advanced. For more details go to wightwaters.com

Sailing

Very few people don't already associate the Isle of Wight with sailing. After crossing the Solent you will be left with no illusion the significance of sailing to the Island and in particular the way of life on the northern coastline. The Isle of Wight is indeed one of the best known sailing venues in the world, hosting various annual events including the Round the Island Yacht Race, Skandia Cowes Week and The Little Britain Challenge Cup.

"Lovely cosy comfortable property, well presented and situated with sea views!"

Stayed between Christmas and New Year during a very wet spell, but the property was warm, cosy and welcoming. Large property ideal for a family or group of friends. Property has been well renovated in keeping with the period and the owners are very easy to contact and deal with. Luxurious furnishings - if you are looking for somewhere nice to stay you won't be disappointed. Lots of lovely walks in the area too.

Thank you for being such lovely guests.
