We fell in love with the Isle of Wight, when on a cold February day my husband and I reached the top of the hill above Ventnor and looked down onto the town. Even in the coldness, Ventnor had a unique beauty as it clung to the cliff side that we had not found anywhere else in our travels around the world.
Brunswick House sits in the heart of Ventnor where the shops are unique and restaurants are varied and plentiful; but even so, it is only 500 yards from the main beach in Ventnor and only minutes away from Bonchurch beaches and Steephill Cove.
From our guest house you can venture out in many directions; 500 yards away is the coastal path and other great walks; the bus stop to other great towns and attactions is less that 100 yards away, and there are many unique cycle routes only moments away.
Ventnor beach is a family beach with first aid and life guards. It still has the old Victorian bathing huts which can be hired by the hour or day and there are plenty of cafes and diners here.
Steephill Cove is a famous secluded beach only accessible by foot but boasts sandy bays and food outlets.
Bonchurch has several secluded beaches with shallow warm water. The village boasts the Pond cafe and if you are prepared for a walk up the hill from the pond you will find the Bonchurch Inn, run by the same family for 4 generations.
Ventnor has a unique climate and with its cliff top views down to the sweeping sandy bay and sparkling seas the resort of Ventnor offers something for everyone.
