Victorian Escape - Ventnor, Isle of Wight
Ventnor lies on the South East corner of the Isle of Wight and boasts more sunny days than much of the British Isles and fewer frosts due to its’ unique micro-climate. Nestling underneath St Boniface Down, the highest point on the island, Ventnor is sheltered from the harshest elements and provides a sub-tropical climate which became famous for its’ health benefits for poorly Victorians.
Ryde, Gateway to the Isle of Wight
Ryde is the main gateway to the Isle of Wight, at the north east end of our heart shaped Island. So with the combination of incoming visitors, day trippers and locals, Ryde is the busiest town on the Island.
What's all the fuss about? Why do thousands of holiday makers return to a tiny little sailing village on the north east shore of our little Island generation after generation? Because really, nothing has changed. It's a traditional sailing village that time forgot.

We have worked with Red Funnel (Southampton to Cowes), Wight Link (Portsmouth to Fishbourne/ Lymington to Yarmouth & Fast Cat into Ryde Pier) & Hover Travel (Southsea to Ryde) for some time and through our Trade Contracts are able to offer our guests healthy savings on their crossings when booked with a self catering holiday cottage.
Yarmouth & Freshwater
The wild wild west of the Isle of Wight is akin to Cornwall with it's rugged rural landscape interspersed with solitary farmhouses, but at the western tip of the Island is the bustling classy harbour town of Yarmouth attracting sailors and visitors from all over.
