Description

Ocean View is a Victorian terraced cottage which looks down over Ventnor Bay with living room, master bedroom and terrace all having fabulous sea views. With its sunlit simplicity the cottage serves equally well as a romantic hideaway or as a base for full-on bucket and spade holidays.

Ventnor beach, with it's Blue Flag for cleanliness and safety, is a few minutes away, as the crow flies, but with a zigzag route downhill, allow for a fifteen minute walk. If you prefer to drive, (avoiding the uphill walk home after a hard day on the beach), there are car parks either end of the Esplanade. Parking at the cottage is free and on-street, a few hundred yards along Ocean View Road.

The town center with its shops, (including butcher, baker, greengrocer and fishery for those who want a break from supermarket shopping!), pubs, cafes and restaurants is halfway between the cottage and the beach.

If you prefer to drive, (avoiding the uphill walk home after a hard day on the beach), there are car parks either end of the Esplanade. Parking at the cottage is free and on-street, a few hundred yards along Ocean View Road.

The town center with its shops, (including butcher, baker, greengrocer and fishery for those who want a break from supermarket shopping!), pubs, cafes and restaurants is halfway between the cottage and the beach.

If you prefer to eat out, Ventnor has probably the best restaurant choice on the Isle of Wight, from fine dining to fresh fish on the beach where it's landed. Recommendations can be found on the pin board at Ocean View.

The cottage accommodates six people comfortably with it's three bedrooms, large family bathroom and downstairs WC.

Upstairs are two double bedrooms, (one with a TV), and a bathroom which has bath, separate shower, washing machine, tumble dryer and boiler which provides instantaneous hot water and keeps the cottage lovely and toasty during the winter months.

Downstairs the kitchen has a dining table which seats six and is equipped with all you might need, including a dishwasher.

The living room, with comfy leather sofas and that amazing sea view also has a TV with Sky box, DVD player, books, games and info leaflets for the island and it's attractions.

The third bedroom with 2 bunk beds is also on the ground floor, as is the WC with wash basin.

Outdoors there is a small but perfectly formed graveled terrace with table and seating for maximum enjoyment of the view. It's enclosed with a picket fence making it safe for young children and pets.

The style of Ocean View is 'shabby chic' with a cosy vintage vibe but you'll (hopefully) find everything you'd expect at home from cafetiere to steam iron, all scrupulously clean and well maintained. The Wifi is free.

For the younger guest there's a travel cot, high chair and stair gate available.

Location description from owner

The England region

SUN

It's official – we get more of it! Ventnor's position on the Southern tip of the Island means that we have a micro climate – our Botanic Gardens being able to grow species which couldn't survive elsewhere in Britain.The lack of pollution here also means that those rays aren't filtered by any city pollution so bump up the sun screen protection factor!

SEA

There are facilities on the Island for virtually every water sport going, (with the possible exclusion of giant banana riding) with Cowes being internationally renowned for sailing and powerboat racing (and also pretty good for shopping). Cowes Week takes place every year in August with the JP Morgan Round the Island Race ensuring thousands of boats sail past Ventnor in June.

KIDS

Isle of Wight Zoo (TV's Tiger Isle); Donkey Sanctuary; Blackgang Chine; Dinosaur Isle; Amazon World; the Isle of Wight Steam Railway; Lobster Safari; Brading Roman Villa, the list goes on.

CULTURE

Osborne House – Queen Victoria's favourite home; Dimbola Lodge, Julia Margaret Cameron's house, now a photographic museum and gallery; Quay Arts – the Island's main arts centre; Farringford – Tennyson's home; Carisbrooke Castle and Quarr Abbey are just some places on the Island where you can get your cultural fix.

WALKS

The Isle of Wight has some 500 miles of footpaths and bridleways and 60 miles of breathtaking Heritage Coast. Almost half the Island is categorised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and within that are many Sites of Special Scientific Interest. It's almost a crime not to make the most of it.

EVENTS

There are two major music festivals - the Isle of Wight Festival in June and Bestival in September and Ventnor itself plays host to an annual Fringe Festival, attracting creative talent from all over the world.

The Isle of Wight Walking Festival takes place in May whilst the Cycling Festival happens each September.

And last but not least, there's a very active carnival season on the Island every summer with Ventnor's taking place in August.

Don't forget your fancy dress!

Ventnor

Ventnor is situated at the southern most tip of the, (roughly diamond-shaped), Isle of Wight. Being built on terraces around the natural amphitheatre of Ventnor Bay, most of the town enjoys fabulous sea views out across the English Channel.

The town's hay day was in Victorian times. Attracted by the mild climate and the fashion for health giving sea bathing, the well to do built splendid villas and mini manor houses. Huge numbers of visitors arrived by train or by pleasure boats which stopped at the pier. The railway and pier may be long gone but the beach's trademark candy-coloured huts are the original Victorian bathing machines, wheels removed!

In more recent times, Ventnor has been described by the British press as 'the hippest hub on the island' but that just means it has something for everyone – from bucket and spade fun on the child-friendly beach to fine dining.

Cafés and restaurants are plentiful and for those wishing to make the most of their self-catering holiday home there is excellent local produce available with independent shops including a butcher, baker, greengrocer and fishery,

There are stunning coastal walks from Ventnor beach – East along the sea wall towards Bonchurch and West, over the cliffs, towards Steephill Cove where you can eat crab and lobster just a few yards from where it has been landed. Northwards, up on the Downs behind the town, you can enjoy breathtaking panoramic views from the highest vantage point on the island.

Bike hire is available locally and boat trips from Ventnor Haven include a lobster safari. There's also an angling club and a twelve hole golf course above the town.

In town there are two museums which, although small, have fascinating photographic records of the area – The Heritage Museum and the Longshoreman's Museum.

Just a few miles along the coast is Blackgang Chine, a friendly little amusement park, great for young children, with an eccentric mix of rides, fairies and dinosaurs, all perched on ever diminishing cliff top gardens. Going inland from Ventnor you'll find historic Appledurcombe House and the Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary.

Car ferries run from Portsmouth, Southampton and Lymington on the mainland to Fishbourne, Cowes and Yarmouth on the island.

The train from London Waterloo links directly to the Fastcat passenger ferry from Portsmouth to Ryde Pier where the train connects to Shanklin – a short bus or taxi ride from Ventnor. A Hovercarft also makes the Portmouth to Ryde crossing. Southampton is the nearest airport.

“Excellent Holiday home”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2016

We stayed here for 7 days and we can't speak highly enough about the accomodation. We have two young children and we also took my Dad who is 76. It catered for all of our needs and was very child proof so don't worry about having small children. Location perfect with a beautiful sea view and an easy walk to the shops and the sea front. Myself and partner are keen runners and we were treated to some wonderful views in and around the location when we headed out on runs. Amazing really how close everything is on the Island so well worth staying in Ventnor as everything is within a close drive. Debby was extremely helpful, she pretty much organised everything for us in the lead up to the stay - made the stay all the more comfortble when you have a go to person and someone who was able to give us some great recommendations on where to go and eat and visit. Hopefully we will be back in the next couple of years as we had a fatastic family break.

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for leaving such a helpful and lovely review for potential guest to see Chris. I'm so pleased that you all had a really good time in lovely Ventnor. Look forward to seeing you again!

“Lovely cottage with an amazing view”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2015

The cottage is lovely with an amazing view. The 2 upstairs bedrooms are a great size, the bathroom is huge, and the kitchen is modern and very well stocked with equipment. The washer and dryer were very handy, and the terrace is lovely to sit out on when the weather is good. The info Debby provided is comprehensive and clear. The parking is only a little way up the hill and we easily found space for two cars every time we needed to park. The keysafe means that if you arrive later than expected you're not rushing to meet someone to let you in. The only issue we had was that we couldn't get the keysafe open to leave the keys when we were checking out, and the bathroom door lock isn't brilliant. Other than that, we couldn't fault it. We would definitely rent the cottage again if we returned to IOW.

Owner's reply: Very many thanks for taking the time to write a review. So sorry that the key safe got the better of you - will update it. Look forward to seeing you again at Ocean View.

“Home away from home - with AMAZING views!”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2014

My wife and I stayed at Ocean View for a long weekend in middle June 2014. We found the cottage to be neat and tidy, well prepared for our stay, stylishly decorated and with amazing views spanning out across Ventnor to the far horizon on the sea. Our booking was made very-very last minute – however Debby was extremely helpful and accommodating in order to get everything organised and sorted prior to our arrival - even arranging our return ferry ticket for us. We can only highly recommend Ocean View and Debby and will certainly contact her again, should we return to Ventnor in future.

Owner's reply: Very many thanks for taking the time to leave a review Mads. You'd be welcome at any of my properties, any time.

“Tranquility base”

Reviewed 23 Apr 2014

We had a long weekend at Ocean View, off season in March. The cottage is really cosy, in extremely good order, very clean and the sea views are wonderful. It also has a small patio in the front where, as the weather was kind, we sat and drank wine in the early evening. Debby, the owner, was very helpful with local information and has a good knowledge of where to eat and drink (under no circumstances omit a visit to the Taverners in Godshill). We're going to try and book Ocean View again for a return visit in the summer.

“You can't beat the view!”

Reviewed 21 Apr 2014

I stayed at ocean view holiday cottage over the Easter week with my family, and we had a wonderful and most importantly relaxing break. Debby was really helpful when we booked, and made sure everything was organised for our holiday. The cottage itself is lovely - really clean and tidy and with a genuine homely feel to it. The rooms are well furnished, and there was plenty of space for a growing family. The view from the patio over ventnor bay is most definitely the crowning glory - making the walk back up the hill from the town worthwhile! We will be back next year!

Owner's reply: Thanks Stu - you are very welcome back to any of my properties, anytime and so many thanks for taking the time to write such a (lovely) review.

“Beautiful cottage with stunning views”

Reviewed 26 Sep 2013

The cottage was very well presented with stunning views. Everything was immaculate and the main bedroom was very comfortable. Debby has obviously put a lot of thought into the decor of the cottage.

Owner's reply: Very many thanks for taking the time to review Ocean View - it helps other guests enormously. Kind regards, Debby

“Lovely cottage in a spectacular setting”

Reviewed 20 Aug 2013

This cottage lived up entirely to its billing. Comfortable and very clean, slightly quirky in a nice sense, topped by wonderful views out to sea. Debby was extremely efficient, accommodating and helpful- the ideal house owner. Ventnor is an enjoyable place and wonderful for getting or keeping fit, particularly if the walk down to town and back is attempted. All in all a really enjoyable holiday with the cottage making a significant contribution to that.

“Glorious Views”

Reviewed 3 Aug 2013

We had a lovely stay in Ventnor and loved the cottage. Views were unbelivable and the property unbelievably clean. It felt like we were the first to stay in the property. The owner Debby is very knowledgable and all of her recommendations were spot on. We hope to return soon.

“Sea views that lift you out of yourself.”

Reviewed 5 May 2013

The views from the living room and south bedroom windows, high up on the hill, out over the sea are breathtaking. Inside; the house is warm and comfortable. Cream leather sofas, comfy bed, excellent shower and bath. Debby's attention to detail and service are first rate, she responds positively, happily and quickly to any question or request. Sorry to repeat myself but the views are just so distracting, I found it difficult to walk past a window without standing and staring out. Highly recommended.

“Ocean House - a house with a truly amazing view!”

Reviewed 30 Apr 2013

This is a very clean and stylish house with the most amazing sea view we have ever seen. Extremely comfortable beds and all the facilities we could wish for. Easy walking distance from Ventnor and local beaches and coves. Friendly landlady lives close by and can easily be contacted should the need arise.
