OPEN ALL YEAR Smugglers is a pretty and cosy early Victorian Cottage in the centre of Ventnor, sleeping 7 people comfortably, plus a cot if required.

There is a large double bedroom with a single room attached and a double room with a twin room attached. Both doubles have king sized pocket sprung beds. There is a shower room with a sink and toilet, and a family bathroom fitted with a toilet, basin & bath with shower attachment. Downstairs there is a comfortable living room with a wood burning stove, leading to the dining room and newly fitted kitchen. The courtyard garden has seating area with a table and eight chairs provided. There is also a gas barbecue for your use (this has to be cleaned before leaving to avoid additional charges). At the side of the cottage is a useful covered passageway that lends itself perfectly to storage of pushchairs, bicycles, Wellington boots, kayaks and surfboards. The double doors open onto the road for easy loading and unloading. There is no parking at the property, however there are two car parks and free roadside parking which is less than 5 minutes walk away. Buses run every half hour through the day from a bus stop moments from the cottage (outside Boots in the High Street) and hourly through the night. We provide an a gas barbecue at no additonal cost but will make a deduction on the security deposit if it is not cleaned prior to departure. We regret that, due to the steepness of Tulse Hill and the roads around Ventnor, the property is not suitable for the infirm. Smugglers is in the centre of the lovely seaside town of Ventnor. Moments from the high street, it is a short walk to Ventnor's restaurants, pubs and coffee shops, as well as the beach and the Esplanade. The pretty villages of Bonchurch, Niton and Shanklin are also close by. Ventnor golf course is less than 1.5 miles away, with the most stunning views across glorious countryside to the sea. Only a short drive away is Queen Victoria's beloved home Osborne House, the historic Carisbrooke Castle, Yarmouth Castle as well as family attractions like Blackgang Chine and the Donkey Sanctuary. The wilder beaches to the west offer diving, paragliding, surfing and kayaking. For walkers, there are over 500 miles of very well signposted footpaths on the Island, more per square mile than any other English county! It is not far to The Needles and Alum Bay, Tennyson Down, Newtown Nature Reserve and much more. Yarmouth and Cowes are no more than 30 minutes by car, for those who love their sailing.More

Smugglers has an excellent location, in a very quiet side street yet only about 200 yards from the centre of Ventnor. Very close to a large Co-op, Tesco Express, and good pubs and restaurants. The Esplanade and beach are only a few hundred yards away...More
