  • Lovely detached property in a tucked away position offering sea views from many of the rooms
  • Spacious balcony and attractive garden, offering plenty of space to relax and play in privacy
  • Fantastic location above the pretty beach at Steephill Cove and just outside the seaside town of Ventnor
Property code: IC169

This property is located in one of the Isle of Wight’s most beautiful hidden gems: the pretty seaside hamlet of Steephill Cove, just over a mile outside the popular town of Ventnor. The nearby beach at Steephill Cove is accessible only on foot, and therefore offers a tranquil retreat from some of the island’s busier stretches of seafront. Steephill Cove is a laid-back kind of place, where instead of arcades and amusements, the beachfront offers a well-regarded restaurant and a seasonal crab shack. Above the cove, Ventnor Botanic Gardens is a wonderful place to spend the day walking amongst the plants and stopping for lunch at the cafe or the well-regarded restaurant which specialises in the local produce.

This spacious property has been designed in a reverse-level fashion in order to make the most of the spectacular views, meaning that the main living area can be found on the first floor. Taking the stairs from the hallway, guests will find the welcoming open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner where a large picture window offers stunning sea views which can be enjoyed from the choice of sofas and chairs. It is hard to take your eyes off the view, but if you can manage to, there is a TV/DVD providing entertainment, or alternatively why not while away the evening over drinks on the balcony? In the kitchen area, a large dining table is a great place for spending time together over leisurely meals which can be prepared with ease thanks to the excellent range of equipment which includes an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher. A washing machine and tumble dyer are housed in the garage. One of the bedrooms is also on the upper floor: a double room with its own en-suite bathroom offering a shower-over-bath and WC. The remaining bedrooms can be found on the ground floor, two of which are twin rooms, with the other being an attractive double room. There is also a shower room on this floor offering a shower and a separate WC.

In addition to the sea-view balcony, the property also enjoys an attractive garden which is mainly set to lawn, for which garden furniture is provided, and which is accessed via external steps to the side of the property. There is parking for two cars on the driveway to the front of the house.

Please note there is a refundable £200 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Whilst relaxing in your garden, be sure to keep an eye out for the Isle of Wight's resident wildlife, and don't be surprised to see an owl or red squirrel during your stay! When it's time to go to the beach, don't forget your buckets and spades, as you can access Steephill Cove on foot (300 metres). It is one of the Isle of Wight's best-kept secrets, a beachside spot reminiscent of innocent days gone by. You won't find an arcade game or greasy burger here, but exciting rockpools, idyllic sandy beaches and freshly caught fish. Check out the seasonal crab shed on the seafront and watch as fishermen haul their daily catch onto shore. Whilst heading towards the nearby town of Ventnor, you must stop off at the popular botanic garden (0.5 miles), before continuing onto the bustling seaside resort just 1.5 miles away. Here you'll find your classic seaside fix, with an arcade-filled pier and unique boutique shops, before heading back to the tranquillity of Steephill Cove for a spot of sunbathing. For another exciting day out, head deep into the Isle of Wight Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and explore the rugged cliffs at Woody Bay (1.5 miles).

Western Lines is situated in a wonderful position with extensive sea views. A great place for ship spotters! It is warm and comfortable and spacious and is a great hit with all the family. We have rented it three times in recent years and hope to return again soon.

Lovely spotlessly clean house with fabulous sea views. A walk to Steephill Cove where snacks, restaurant and public loo all appreciated. Fun to swim and sit on the beach but not sandcastle sand. Easy stroll to botanic gardens where saw red squirrels

Fantastic location and the view from the main window is outstanding. Short walk to the sea front. Ventnor town is a short walk and worth a few visits.

The property advertises access to the coastal path but this is now dangerous. For 8 people there was only one proper shower. The house is in a lovely position with great sea views but needs significant improvement.

The location and seaview from the upstairs living room and ensuite bedroom are delightful and the spacious combined kitchen/diner/living room ideal for 6 or 8.

The Cottage was in a lovely location with great views and very quite, ideal for relaxing. Straight out the back gate and you are right on the coastal path or a short walk into town via the road. The cottage had everything we required and was very spacious.

The property is clean, comfortable, has stunning views over the sea form the upstairs lounge and balcony. The four grandchildren loved the 'secret path' from the garden down to the cove and went rock-pooling every day. Plenty of places to visit on the Isle of Wight all only a short drive away. Property ideally located for Botanical Gardens and VentRead morenor itself. (not walkable for elderly or those with mobility issues as drive extremely steep.) Local pub, Spy Glass, has excellent food. Hide
