The England region

The Isle of Wight is a county and the largest island of England, located in the English Channel, on average about 2–4 miles (3–6 km) off the south coast of the county of Hampshire, separated from the mainland by a strait called the Solent. The Island has many resorts which have been holiday destinations since Victorian times.The Island has a rich history, including a brief status as an independent kingdom in the 15th century. Until 1995, like Jersey and Guernsey, the Island had its own Governor—most notably Lord Mountbatten from 1969–1974, after which he became Lord Lieutenant until his assassination in 1979.It was home to the poet Alfred Lord Tennyson, and to Queen Victoria, who built her much-loved summer residence and final home Osborne House at East Cowes. The Island's maritime and industrial history encompasses boat building, sail making, the manufacture of flying boats, the world's first hovercraft and the testing and development of Britain's space rockets. It is home to the Isle of Wight International Jazz Festival, Bestival and the recently-revived Isle of Wight Festival, which, in 1970, was the largest rock music event ever held. The Island has some exceptional wildlife and is one of the richest locations of dinosaur fossils in Europe.

Ventnor

Ventnor is a seaside resort and civil parish established in the Victorian era on the south coast of the Isle of Wight, England. It lies underneath St Boniface Down (which, at 240 metres (787 feet), is the highest point on the Isle of Wight), and is built on steep slopes and cliffs leading down to the sea. The higher part is referred to as Upper Ventnor (although officially it is Lowtherville); the lower part, where most of the amenities are located, being known as Ventnor. Ventnor is sometimes understood as including the coastal villages of St. Lawrence to one side and Bonchurch to the other.The sheltered location on the cliff of the Island's south coast means the area experiences a microclimate with more sunny days than much of the British Isles, and fewer frosts. This has allowed many species of subtropical plant to be successfully planted and maintained. Ventnor Botanic Garden is particularly notable.

“great apartment with an amazing view”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2015

A lovely clean apartment, tastefully decorated and extremely well equipped. The view of the sea and Ventnor was amazing and the location of the apartment was ideal. Minutes from the sea front, coastal paths, supermarket and restaurants. The whole booking experience was very efficient and the deposit refunded promptly. Ventnor is a delightful town and the excellent apartment made for a very relaxing break. We were sorry to leave and plan to return. There was absolutely nothing that we weren't happy with.

“Fantastic apartment with amazing views!!”

Reviewed 10 Sep 2015

The apartment is clean, tidy and modern, and in a fantastic location. We have been back to Royal Marine House three times now and have enjoyed every single visit. The views from the living room window are amazing! Ventnor beach is only 2 minutes' walk away as is the town centre. Very efficient booking process via email - Thank you Richard!! Will definitely stay again - Have only been home a week and already talking about going back!

Thanks Richard. Our stay was wonderful. Your place was superb (!) and Ventnor vastly exceeded our expectations. What a special, well kept secret. We'll definitely return and we'll definitely book RMH.

“Again a perfect stay at RMH in Ventnor”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2015

We booked Royal Marine House the second time. Once again we felt at home when entering the appartment. The appartment is well equipped and offers enough space for 2 adults and 2 children. This time we came along with our bikes - storage room in the back of the house. There are some excellent cycleways (e.g. the old railway tracks from Freshwater to Yarmouth, or from Wroxall to Shanklin) and small roads with less traffic. Walking on the Coastal Path and several other paths and bridleways offers stunning views. Good food at the Spyglass Inn and Ventnor Haven (Fish & Chips). Nice beach - not more than 5 minutes walk from the appartment.

“Great Apartment!”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2015

Stayed here for two nights with some friends to get some time away after finishing exams. Apartment was clean and tidy and rooms were of a good size. Beautiful view from front of house and everything was as promised. Would definitely stay again.

“Everything you want in a holiday apartment”

Reviewed 3 Jul 2015

Really nice apartment with a host of facilities. Could not fault any of the amenities provided with some real nice touches. Parking was an issue due to the width of car, but Richard was able to tell me where to park and this in no way spoilt the holiday. Met Richard a number of times and always pleasant, helpful and knowledgable

“Perfectly located for exploring Ventnor”

Reviewed 9 Jun 2015

A comfortable, clean and nicely decorated apartment with fabulous views across the bay. A short level walk into town with various restaurants, pubs and bars or a steep hill walk down to the sea front. The parking space, as explained in the instructions, is tight but I was able to manoeuvre safely in my X Type Jag. Larger cars may struggle. Unfortunately the advertised wi-fi wasn't working but maybe the limit had been used by the previous occupants? Otherwise the flat is very well equipped and I would definitely return.

“Perfect holidays - nice and well equipped appartment”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2014

On arrival we immediately felt at home at Royal Marine House. 1st floor appartment is well equipped with washing machine, dishwasher, TV/DVD and of course WIFI. We loved the view from the windows, looking to the seaside and beach. When lying in bed, you can hear the sound of the waves. Ventnor itself is a nice town with all you need, including a very good Fish&Chips at the harbour. This was our first time on the Isle of Wight, but most probably not the last. As we went around the island and visited several villages and towns, I really can recommend staying in Ventnor.
