Very good

  • 4 of 5

House very high standard. Description accurate, all facilities as described. Lots of books, CDs, DVDs, games etc to amuse young and old. Furnishings and decoration very high standard. Location very good - Ventnor nice place.

Only problem - finding it. The 'welcome pack', nor anything else, gives the postal address or post code for satnav purposes, and there was no phone contact. We had to do some detective work on the web to locate it.

Highly recommended

Stunning house in great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay over New Year - the house more than met our space needs of three couples and four young children.

The house is very well appointed and equipped - we wanted for nothing. The beds and bedding all top quality and place was immaculate when we arrived.

Owner Marc a pleasure to deal with, even having the patience to return some property which we left there.

I'd recommend this house to anyone - I think it works really well for family and friends get togethers.

Hope to be back

Fabulous, chic and spacious

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful property, super-clean, smart linen and furniture and filled with wonderful eclectic design objects giving it a modern and fun feel in an old house. Powerful heating system and power showers too. Thoughtful touches too like a very well equipped kitchen, night lights for kids, tons of books and dvd's on hand.

Beautiful sea views from the bay window, an amazing garden with a vast trampoline that the kids loved and so much space. Kids were impressed with bountiful toy cupboards too. Walking distance to the sea (though tough on the thighs with quite a hill!), Ventnor has all the amenities - some great restaurants, a fab butcher, supermarket, smart tea shops etc.

The view from the back is onto hills filled with trees - quite stunning. You get some exercise too running up and down the 4 floors.

We also discovered the Ventnor Arts Club which offers visitor membership - giving you access to live music, films and a private bar.

We hope to be back at Cressingham very soon.
