Bank End Farm Bungalows
Ventnor 2.3 miles. Two spectacularly positioned semi-detached coastal bungalows, both with breathtaking far-reaching coastal views across the English Channel, and set within the grounds of Bank End Farm, Ventnor on the Isle of Wight. With direct access through the farm onto the coastal footpath, you are only a short walk away from small coves and secluded beaches on the south coast of the island. Love and care has been put into these bungalows, with exposed beams throughout, together with numerous patio doors and windows allowing both the light and those stunning farmland and coastal views to spill in, creating a wonderfully peaceful and welcoming family environment. Both have been furnished to a comfortable standard, with Freeview TV, DVD players, books, games, DVDs and washing machines. Each bungalow has its own private decked balcony with table, chairs and barbecue, all positioned perfectly to fully appreciate the farmland and sea views. Both have shared use of the large gravelled and lawned rear garden area, with bench tables and climbing frame. There is plenty of off road parking, with two spaces each just outside of the bungalows. Directly from each of the bungalows, follow the buoys across the bridge and through the farmland, all the way to the coastal path to some stunning small coves, the most spectacular place for a picnic. The Undercliffe is famous for its Mediterranean climate, therefore enabling a wide variety of plants to grow all around. Just up the road Ventnor Botanic Gardens will be found, with its worldwide temperate and subtropical trees and shrubs. Throughout the year the Gardens hold many events and exhibitions to be enjoyed, as well as having a highly acclaimed café/restaurant. A few minutes’ walk along the coastal path will bring you to one of the islands hidden treasures, Steephill Cove, with its sand and shingle beach, and a row of fishermen’s cottages. Watch the small boats launch, hoping to catch crabs and lobsters for the locals. Some cottages have been converted into wonderful café restaurants, where you can sample their catch directly from the sea. These two bungalows can be booked separately for an individual family, or book both together for one of those memorable large family or friends gatherings.

About the location

The quaint Victorian seaside resort of Ventnor is located at the southern end of the island and accessed via an array of steep winding roads set amidst beautiful scenery. Sheltered by St. Boniface Down, one of the island's highest points and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this charming town has a uniquely mild micro climate enabling tropical and exotic plants to grow throughout the area. The gently sloping sandy and fine shingle beaches and coves provide excellent facilities for watersports and offer a range of stunning coastal paths to explore, while the harbour sells a broad range of fresh fish and locally-caught seafood. A good variety of shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants line the esplanade, whilst the Botanical Gardens are within easy reach and well worth a visit. With plenty to see and do around the island for all the family, including great walking and cycling opportunities, medieval castles, historic houses and a variety of gardens and waterfalls, as well as the unspoilt fishing bay, this great holiday destination has plenty to offer all year round, and it's easy to see why it's known as the prettiest place on the Isle of Wight.
