Holiday Rental House -
4 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 7
Ventnor, Isle of Wight, England
This beautiful five star house was built in 1850, and is in an enviable position, high on the hill overlooking Ventnor Park and with panoramic views over the English Channel. Three of the bedrooms, as well as the living and dining rooms, have floor to ceiling windows to fully appreciate the view. The windows in the living and dining rooms open to access a large decked area with the most amazing vista in all directions.

Although in a quiet location Gills Cliff House is only about 10 minutes walk to the shops and beach as well as the many and varied excellent eating and drinking establishments which are increasingly putting Ventnor on the map. There is a bus stop for buses to Blackgang and Newport only 20 yards from the house.

The house is finished to a high standard with four bedrooms (three with king size beds and the fourth with a 4ft...

The most perfect location for a seaside holiday. The view and decking area at the house are just breathtaking and are taken advantage of by the design of the windows upstairs. The interior of the house is beautifully done, being elegant but homely and very...More

What an absolutely superb house, with stunning views. A really great place to stay. The sea front is less than a 1 1/2 mile walk away with a few bars and restaurants.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can't recommend highly enough. A truly beautiful home, spotlessly clean and well appointed. It made a perfect base for a family holiday- a great location from which to explore the island and a homely and comfortable space to relax....More

About the neighbourhood
Ventnor is a charming Victorian town noted for its sunny summers and mild winters. It is built on the sheltered undercliff on the south of the Isle of Wight and is dominated by the highest point on the island, St Boniface Down, immediately behind the town. Sir James Clark, Queen Victoria's doctor, endorsed the health-giving properties of Ventnor's climate: 'nothing along the south coast will bear comparison with it'. Ventnor was recently described in The Times as 'the epicentre of the new Wight'.

In recent years Ventnor has become a centre for good food with many fine restaurants within minutes' walk of the House. This in addition to other places to eat such as seafront pubs and a smart seafront wine bar.

There is excellent walking directly from the house (w...

How to get there
Airport: Southampton: 20.0 km
Railway: Shanklin: 5.0 km
Ferry: Ryde: 10.0 km
Ferries cross to the Island from Portsmouth, Southampton and Lymington. Foot passenger ferry journey time is about 20 minutes, while it can take as little as 35 minutes to cross with a car. Hovercraft go between Southsea and Ryde with a journey time of around 10 minutes.

The house is a 30-40 minutes drive across the island from any of the car ferry ports. The owner is able to quote inclusive rates for the house and car ferry travel which, in peak season, will be considerable cheaper than buying the ferry crossing separately.

Foot passengers are advised to arrive at Ryde and take either the number 3 bus or train to Shanklin and the number 3 bus which go to within 200m of the house. Train passengers should travel to Portsmouth Harbour and take the catamaran and either the number 3 bus or...
