Villa in Ventnor, Isle of Wight, England - Spacious Self-Catering Accommodation, Just 5 Mins Walk from the Beach
A Victorian Gentleman's residence with breathtaking southerly sea views, from a balcony that would have witnessed the Titanic's maiden voyage. The view extends west towards the undercliffe and east across the pretty Victorian town of Ventnor. Take time to sit in the garden and watch the ships cross the channel or step onto the balcony from either of the double bedrooms and enjoy breakfast with a spectacular sea view. Enjoy an evening meal under the twin chandeliers at a table fit for a banquet in the separate dining room! Step onto the Victorian veranda from either the lounge or dining room to soak up the sheltered southerly sun. Just 10 minutes walk away, the quaint beach is flanked by the famous Spy Glass Inn and the Ventnor marina. Take time to walk along the cliffs to neighbouring Steephill Cove or Bonchurch. Unwind on the terraces of the small cafes on Ventnor esplanade or tinker in the many antique shops along the high street. Stroll west to the renowned Botanical Gardens.
