Description

Bermuda House is the ideal base for a family holiday on the island or for somewhere to get the family together, say for a special birthday celebration. There is a wide range of places to eat and drink within 10 minutes walk.

The property has been fully refurbished and sleeps ten in five generously sized bedrooms (two doubles, a triple, a twin and a single). Additionally there is a double sofabed in one of the living rooms for occasional use by arrangement. All of the bedrooms have nice views, either of the coast or of the downs which rise attractively behind the town.

Bermuda House has high ceilings with chandeliers, fine cornicing and ceiling roses and a lovely carved staircase. New oak flooring has been fitted and the house is decorated and furnished in a contemporary but sympathetic style. There are two ground floor living rooms with satellite TV and a huge through kitchen/diner. Free wifi is available throughout the house.

The house was built around 1883 on

The house was built around 1883 on the site of Ventnor Mill. A blue plaque commemorates Sir Edward and Alice Elgar spending their honeymoon on the first floor of this house in May 1889. From the house Sir Edward wrote to a friend "We are liking this place very much and have nice rooms overlooking the sea..."

Further details

The house is let for whole weeks during the main summer season and school holidays. At other times it is available by the day, with a minimum rental period of two days.

There are steps up to the entrance and no ground floor toilet, so the house is not suitable for people with significantly impaired mobility.

Further details outdoors

The house is on a private road with dedicated parking for two cars.There is a fully enclosed cliff top garden, mostly grassed, with table, chairs and a tropical tree.

Location description from owner

The England region

The Isle of Wight only became a separate island about 7000 years ago and has long been known as The Garden Isle, noted for its mild climate, stunning scenery and friendly welcome. The Island became popular in the Victorian Era, when Queen Victoria made Osborne House her home. It is just five miles from the mainland, but it seems like another world.

More than half of the Island is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there is a network of footpaths that stretches over 500 miles, so it is easy to get close to nature. Walking, cycling and riding are all attractions of the island. There are many family attractions to visit and fine beaches all around the coast. Alternatively, indulge yourself in the Isle of Wight's fine restaurants, art galleries and historic houses.

Ventnor

Ventnor is a charming Victorian town noted for its sunny summers and mild winters. It is built on the sheltered undercliff on the south of the Isle of Wight and is dominated by the highest point on the island, St Boniface Down, immediately behind the town. Sir James Clark, Queen Victoria's doctor, endorsed the health-giving properties of Ventnor's climate: "nothing along the south coast will bear comparison with it". Ventnor was recently described in The Times as "the epicentre of the new Wight".

In recent years Ventnor has become a centre for good food with many fine restaurants within minutes' walk of the Bermuda House. This in addition to other places to eat such as seafront pubs, an authentic Spanish tapas bar and a smart seafront wine bar.

There is excellent walking directly from the house (walks books and maps are provided) and a 20 minute stroll along the coast brings you to the acclaimed Ventnor Botanic Gardens.

The sandy beach is a short (2 minute) walk from the house.

“A great mini-break”

Reviewed 6 Mar 2014

We had the pleasure of staying at Bermuda House for part of February half term. The house is very spacious and yet always very warm and welcoming. The huge kitchen diner provides a lovely central hub . Ventnor's charms were evident even out of season and we were surprised to find such excellent restaurants on our doorstep.

“Fabulous location, fabulous house - perfect for large groups”

Reviewed 18 Mar 2013

Just amazing, the owner was incredibly helpful right from the start. The size and space of the house is brilliant. The location is amazing, so handy for Ventnor town. Would recommend this house to sharing families and any groups. The two reception rooms means that you don't all have to be on top of one another. The kitchen area is so spacious and perfect for a social night in!

“10 of us stayed here for an early Christmas day, we all loved it!!!”

Reviewed 6 Jan 2013

The house was well furnished and was comfortable with amazing views. We were especially pleased with the kitchen and how well stocked it was. Hopefully will stay again this year.
