  • "Really pleasant location."

    The ensuite shower has a large step up into the cubicle and no hand hold inside so not suitable for anyone with mobility problems; it did work perfectly well for the rest of us. The shared bathroom has only a bath, no shower, the push-on shower attachment for the taps leaked at the handle. Living room furniture covers could be refreshed. We really enjoyed being close to the coast path and Ventnor Botanic Gardens.

  • "Directions to the address is not clear, we're a bit lost roaming around the area before we found it."

    The cottage was exactly the same on the listing, however dust and some cobwebs are very obvious if you look at the ceiling. The pressure of water from the shower is not strong enough to have a good shower. The boiler in the house is too noisy every after few hours where we didn't have a good sleep. But overall we enjoyed our stay cause of the beautiful scenery where green land and seashore is in front of the cottage.

  • "View from sofa with French doors open."

    Very comfortable and open living space. Well equipped kitchen area. Walking distance from amazing Smoking Lobster restaurant. 5 mins walk to beach, best swam at high tide.

  • "A nice cosy, postcard cottage, a short walk from the sea, with your own parking space."

    Two bathrooms were very useful, and it had all the usual facilities. We had a good time here, but there were a few drawbacks, the TV could access only about 6 stations, there was no signal for my Vodafone, we had quite a few encounters with spiders and woodlice in the rooms, and the only bus service within easy walking distance was a No 8 which only went to Blackgang.

  • "This location was on the Isle of Wight and of course the ferry is an added expense."

    Many IOW holiday operators have secured discounts with ferry operators - we found a 10% discount on the Internet. Negotiating a discount for your customers should be possible.

  • "The bathroom facilities were not the best."

    The shower was either too hot or cold and very small. A welcome pack would have been a nice touch and the external decor is in need of repair/paint. The double bed was very hard and the duvet could have been better.

    I would recommend that the owners add a trampoline for children in the big beautiful garden if possible to entertain the children as the slop down the hill to the beach was a bit tricky following 2 days of rain so we were unable to enjoy the beach as such and a trampoline would have kept the children occupied and happy

The property

Swallow is the smaller of the two semi-detached coastal bungalows, and with a beamed open plan living, dining and well-equipped fitted kitchen area, with patio doors on two sides allowing those spectacular sea views into the inside.

There are three bedrooms all with exposed beams, one double with en-suite shower room, one twin, which is zip/link and can make a king-size double if requested, and one further twin room.

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


Newport 10 miles; Cowes 15 miles.

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.
