On the South-East Coast of the Isle of Wight lies a Victorian seaside town of unparalleled beauty and tranquillity. Ventnor is recognised as one of the top 10 seaside resorts in the UK, with its Blue Flag beach. The village has a lovely selection of shops, pubs and restaurants, and an ice-cream parlour making all homemade produce. The harbour offers sea safari trips which are great fun for all ages, and the fishery provides a wide selection of fresh catch of the day.
Set into the hillside, it has its own ‘micro-climate’ as St Boniface Down shelters it. The Botanical Gardens have an exceptional collection of flowers, some of which can only be grown here since Ventnor enjoys warm evenings, mild winters and one of the best sunshine records in the UK.
