The England region

Ventnor was built on the sheltered slopes of St Boniface Down and takes full advantage of the Gulf Stream. The town grew up in the Victorian era, after the island was made popular for summer holidays by Queen Victoria. At this time many beautiful Victorian mansions were built on the terraces taking full advantage of the seaviews looking far out over the channel. In recent years many of the Victorian houses have been restored to their former splendor. The town now hosts a number of growing music and food events.

Ventnor Harbour, opened in 2003 offers a fair-weather Haven for small sailing boats and powerboats travelling round the back of the island. It is also the base for a community of fishing boats catching and selling seafood into Ventnor Pubs and Restaurants year round. Swimming on Ventnor Beach is safe and Lifeguards have recently been appointed. The bay is a typical bucket and spade type destination with plenty of pubs and cafes selling a good variety of food.

Further along the coastal footpath to the west is Steephill Cove, a popular sheltered bay, with numerous cafes and restaurants again selling seafood. Not to be missed is one of Mandy’s homemade crab pasties, made freshly with crab caught from the cove.

Bonchurch

Built on a series of terraces on the lower slopes of St Boniface Down, the timeless village of Bonchurch is recognized as much for its natural beauty as it is for its historical connections.

Beginning at the foreshore the village is fronted by Monks Bay and Horseshoe Bay. The wide beach at Monks Bay provides a safe bathing area for children and exposes an abundance of fabulous rock pools to explore at low tide. Further to the west, Horseshoe Bay provides several amenities including a café / restaurant specializing in locally caught seafood, an ice cream stall, a pottery workshop, car parking and public toilets.

Climbing the footpath towards the village you will pass St Boniface Old Church. Rebuilt in 1070AD, the church was once visited by Charles I who attended a funeral here during his imprisonment on the Island at Carisbrooke Castle.

The heart of the village is the Pond, home to an abundance of wildlife including ducks and moorhens. Huge carp rise to the surface for scraps of bread thrown by visitors. You may even see a herring waiting patiently for is catch in the shallows.

Across the road is The Pond Café – a fabulous bistro style restaurant. The Pond Stores and Post Office next door sell a variety of groceries including alcoholic beverages, daily newspapers and magazines as well as fresh fruit and vegetables. All just a 5 minute walk from Carmel Cottage.

Walking on up the Shute, you will pass the New Church dating back to 1780. Following the road round is the Bonchurch Inn. The Pub serves an excellent Italian Menu as well as many traditional favourites and a good selection of Real Ales.

The top of the Shute leads to Upper Bonchurch with many footpaths leading to the Downs behind and the Landslip to the East. The view from Upper Bonchurch is spectacular, overlooking Lower Bonchurch and The English Channel. If you’re feeling energetic, climb St Boniface Downs, to the most elevated position on the Isle of Wight. At 830ft the entire island is at your feet with unbroken views of farmland and woodland across The Solent to the Mainland.

“The stay is worth repeating”

Reviewed 11 Mar 2013

We had a cozy stay in this little cottage. As a couple very good. Bedroom was a bit cold, due to the gale blowing at night with freezing temperaturers and snow. We adviced the owners to make a second door outside to hang temporarily when there are freezing conditions or a small porch. In other conditions fine. The bathroom is big enough and cozy. The livingroom upstairs with kitchen incorporated was also very cozy and everything was there to use. The footpath to the beach below was bit muddy, but the weatherconditions were very abnormal. No problem in other season, we're sure. We'll come back !!

Thank you for the suggestions. We have now insulated the window surrounds in the bedroom and hung a heavy curtain over the door. We have had a long spell of unusually cold easterly winds this year but with the extra insulation, woodburner, central and underfloor heating, the Hideaway will now be toasty year round.

“Peacfull idylic accomodation but near enough to civilisation.”

Reviewed 22 Feb 2013

The cottage is charming, quaint and beautifully presented. Perfect hideaway for a couple. Just the right size for two (although there is the option of the sofa bed in the lounge if it's needed) Well behaved pets are allowed so our Jack Russel was very happy to come on holiday as well. Have stayed here three times it has always been clean and well equiped. The woodburner is a welcome addition to the central heating, very welcome in febuary! Nice comfortable sofa and bed with a big feather duvet. An excellent walk in shower with plenty of hot water and a heated floor when you get out. The upper garden and decking has a couple of wooden sun loungers also a table and chairs, from which you can sit and watch the sea whilst enjoying the peace and quiet. The hideaway is located down a quiet lane, well away from any passing traffic. The beach is no more than 2 minutes walk away just down the path. The Bonchurch inn is a 5 to 10 minute walk up the lane and is the perfect place to eat and drink. Beer from barrel and very good italian food. Ventnor is a pleasant 1/2 hour walk along the seafront with its good mix of cafe's and bars. The perfect location really. Owners Lucy and Sean have always made us welcome. We are looking forward to visiting again soon.
