Our guide to Ventnor holiday cottages
Found on the south of the Isle of Wight, Ventnor is very much the traditional seaside resort of the island. The days when Victorians flocked to the town to enjoy its warm micro-climate may be long gone but the weather still outshines the rest of the island, and that means long sunny days with plenty of time to enjoy the sand and shingle beach.
Even the beach huts were once the bathing machines used in more prudish times, and there’s a quaint feel to the resort that makes it popular with families throughout the year. Look out for the children’s paddling pool that’s also a map of the island, and don’t forget your walking boots as Ventnor is a convenient starting point for many of the Wight’s hikes and walks.
