Holiday Properties To Let In Ventnor Isle of Wight
Ventnor grew up as a health resort in the Victorian era. The famous 22 acre gardens have Mediterranean, alpine and medicinal herb plantings, herbaceous borders, shrubs and trees. A modern visitor centre is accessible to all and there is a passenger lift to the gardens below. There is also a children’s play park and a splendid Temperate House containing many exotic plants.
The seafront enjoys a surprisingly mild climate due to sheltering cliffs and southerly aspect. The Western Esplanade has a part sand, part fine shingle beach, good for sunbathing and swimming and adjacent to pubs, cafes, amusements, paddling pool and seafront car park.
The car park at the western end of the Esplanade adjoins the coastal path along the western cliffs, which affords spectacular views of the bay. The path winds inland to Ventnor Park, where you will find a putting green and beautiful gardens before continuing on to Castle Cove and along the sea wall to picturesque Steephill Cove and the Botanic Gardens.
Ventnor Heritage Centre provides glimpses of the town’s past and you may find your own interesting pieces of history in one of the many local shops of antiques and collectables. Most of the friendly pubs, restaurants and tearooms in the area are housed in Victorian buildings which adds to their charm and atmosphere
