The Overlook has been architect designed and has breathtaking sea views across the English Channel. There are two large double bedrooms, both with en-suite showers and doors opening onto a separate balcony facing south and looking out to sea. There is a further twin bedroom, and a family bathroom. The open plan living area has patio doors leading to a second terrace with table and seating. The Overlook has been furnished to a high standard and benefits from ample off road parking.

It is situated only a few minutes’ walk from the centre of Ventnor, a Victorian seaside town with buildings full of character. In addition to the main shopping street where you will find a selection of small supermarkets to include a Co-op and Tesco Express, there are parks and gardens, museums and the Winter Gardens - an entertainment venue with a growing reputation for theatre, concerts, comedy and dance shows and of course the restaurant/bar. The renowned Ventnor Haven Fishery at The Marina sells the daily catch of fresh fish and seafood; boat trips are also available from here.

There are a number of great restaurants in Ventnor including Tramezzini, The Ale & Oyster, and the Smoking Lobster to name a few. The famous Spyglass pub sits right on the sea, and there are some great tea and coffee shops; The Tea House and Lady Scarlett’s Tea Parlour (complete with 1940’s theming) are favourites. Or if you fancy a take-away to enjoy by the beach, the Ventnor Haven Fishery on The Esplanade sell fantastic fish & chips, locally caught and prepared to order.

Ventnor Botanic Garden lies in the remarkable microclimate at the heart of the famous 'Undercliff.' This unique garden is protected from the cold northerly winds by chalk downs. In addition to enjoying the lovely gardens, it also hosts events and exhibitions and there is a restaurant and Café on-site for refreshments; lunch or coffee and cake!

From The Esplanade you can take the level walk, along the sea wall to Bonchurch, or walk along the cliff path towards Steephill Cove, a beautiful sheltered bay only accessed by foot.

What the South Wight has to offer:

The South of the Isle of Wight incorporates some of the most exciting coastline from long stretches of beach with hidden fossils and exposed dinosaur footprints, to rugged cliff tops with exhilarating views and historical monuments and pretty villages steeped in history, the inspiration for artists and authors old and new.

You must visit

Blackgang Chine is a must for all the family with a fantastic variety of activities for all the family to spend a great day out. Themed areas like Frontierland where you can play Cowboys and Indians in a full sized Cowboy Town, and rides like Waterforce where you can choose the fast 'overflows', or the scary 'plug-hole' - you'll have to see it and experience it to believe it!


Superbly situated beside the sparkling waters of Sandown Bay, the twin resorts of Sandown and Shanklin have delighted generations of holiday-makers for over 150 years. Along Culver Parade you'll find tennis, bowls, GoKarting, crazy golf, a pitch and putt course, the Tiger Sanctuary and Dinosaur Isle Museum. At the southern end of town the Heights Health and Leisure Base has indoor swimming pools and further inland is a fine 18 hole golf course.

With its charming thatch-roofed cottages and winding main street lined with tearooms, Godshill is the quintessential English Village. Travelling South to Wroxall there's the Donkey Sanctuary and Appuldurcombe House now offering Owl and Falconry displays. Visit Chale Green Deli and Coffee shop and on to the Southern most tip of the Island St Catherine's with its ancient Pepperpot. Ventnor Botanic Garden provides a lovely walk and then lunch at their very successful café.


There are coastal paths around the Island and this section features the Isle of Wight's famous chines. Whale Chine is the most spectacular in a series of Chines along this stretch of coastline. Devil's Chimney provides an exciting walk through enchanted woodland down to the beach; Chale Bay is stunning; Wealdon Beds which have yielded fossilized remains of dinosaurs. With features like St Catherine's Lighthouse many feel this section offers the best walking and views of the entire Isle of Wight.

Beach Life

Sandown and Shanklin on the south-east coast share a wide crescent of golden sand, with safe swimming, water sports and a range of bars, pubs and cafés. The southern stretch, below Shanklin Chine, is the quietest and most attractive.

Ventnor has a wonderful Mediterranean light and, like Sandown and Shanklin, an enviable sunshine record. Steephill Cove is its prettiest beach, a peaceful little bay with a good beach café. Reach it via the coastal footpath from the Botanic Gardens, or La Falaise car park in Ventnor.

Places to eat

Try the local seafood, in particular crab, lobster, haddock dishes. The vast majority of pubs are highly geared up for food and usually the portions are on the large side. Fresh crab in particular can be tasty from beachside cafe's and can also be purchased from the fisherman at seafood huts selling direct, two places spring to mind: Ventnor Fresh Crab Beach Hut and a fisherman's house at Steephill Cove next to the café.

Had a lovely holiday, loved buffy the cat. Nice verandas and great living room. Enjoyed waching ships through binoculars.
Don't really want to go home !

We loved the beach and surfing the waves ! We enjoyed seeing the needles and going to the Isle o fWight Pearl. Had a nice meal
at the Spyglass Inn and enjoyed listening to the singer at The Millbay Inn. We went to Cowes and the beach in Shanklin. We
walked down the pier in Yarmouth and had lunch in a pub.

We will miss the view and the lovely landscape !

Thank you for a lovely holiday in Ventnor, Isle of Wight !!!

Great house, great location, great weather, a perfect holiday.

Very much enjoyed our stay. The house and views are spectacular very good food at The Taverners in Godshill and a really good chinese takeaway from China House.

Thank you !

We have had an enjoyable week here, we have loved the views, and have been entertained by the seagull's
nest on the roof opposite, 2 chicks hatched 3 days ago.

We have particularly enjoyed the steam train, various cafes for tea and cake the best being Lady Scarletts's Tea Parlour
(The Esplanade, Ventnor) which also happens to do the best crab sandwiches ever. The best fish pie ever was at The Boathouse
pub at Seaview. We also had a very good Chinese takeaway delivered from New China House.

Stunning house and wonderful views superbly appointed accommodation. Great Island, need to return to explore more !

Thank you

We have had a fabulous stay at The Overlook, The house is stunning in a great location (walking down far easier than up !)
The views from the terrace and lovely big windows are just gorgeous.
The house is so well appointed and has everything and more than you could possibly need, great having a washing machine, non to do when i get home !
We ate in the Bistro lovely little restaurant, good food but service hit and miss for prices charged. Spyglass Inn - great sunny spot for easy lunch, beware huge portions !
New Chine - looks awful from outside but food was good. We also bought fresh fish from The Haven on the seafront and cooked here, the fish was amazing so fresh.

We had a boat trip with Ocean Charters - great company, lovely couple took us out, worth doing.

Beach huts/cabins on the beach £15.20 worth having to keep your belongings in and for changing.

The Overlook was a lovely place to stay - more than we expected, towels, bedding, furniture lovely quality. Isabelle loved the "dinosaur" egg bath !!
Loved the fire pit and toasting marshmellows. The garlic festival was a lovely day out, two visits to Robin Hill one wet and one sunny, Shanklin
was lovely afternoon tea in a fairy garden. Altogether a great holiday, but too short !! Grandma & Gramps loved being with the family very much. We love the Isle of Wight
after our first visit !!

Had a lovely stay here at The Overlook. House is full of great amenities and fun gadgets to get our heads around !
Beautiful views and a well decorated place to stay.

Thank you very much.

Thanks for a great week ! We have had really good, hot weather ... So the outdoor space has been well used !
The views are amazing, house is really modern and clean we had everything we needed (dishwasher is great !) and
it's in a great location for exploring the Island. The hills up from the town are killers !
Would be great to have bath mats in the bathrooms and also a shelf in the showers. We have all loved our stay here.... Thank you !

Super ! combined with the lovely weather it was a wonderfully restful week.
We especially enjoyed watching the ships at sea - Queens Mary and Elizabeth.

Thank you for an amazing week in your exceptionally well appointed house. The outside space is amazing coupled with the excelent weather we had.
Ventnor was lovely and we walked miles both to the East and West.

We all have enjoyed our stay here at this stunning house. The view is amazing, the house looks so new and modern and we all took turns using the binoculars at night to star gaze.

The beach is only a 2-5 minute walk down the hill. We spent most of our time there in the sea which, surprisingly wasn't too cold ! while we were there we hired a beach hut and cabin - these came with
deck chairs a windbreak and your own part of the beach ! The cabins were a little bigger and nicer than the beach huts but either way there both a great idea.

We have been to quite a few resturants here but our 2 favouites are Tramezzini and New China.

Overall we've all had a wonderful time here on the Isle of Wight and hope to be returning soon.

Enjoyed the house emensely. We had great weather so the balcony and terrace were great. The views are fabulous to wake up to.

The China Chinese Resturant was very goodin terms of food quality even if a bit quiet inside.

Enjoyed the Spyglass Inn.

Thank you

Amazing house, stunning views, wonderful Island !

Thank you !!

This house is amazing ! It's got everything you need. The balconies are great and so are the views! It's also good for star gazing !

Thanks !

Stunning house, didn't want to leave! Wonderful sea views. Highlights included watching planned launch of Bembridge RNLI Lifeboat; fossil hunting walk via Island gems
(at Brook Beach); Tea & cake at "Time for Tea" Ventnor High Street & a browse around the gallery of very talented photographer, Neil Williams on Ventnor Esplanade.
(very pleased to see two of his images on the walls in this lovely house).

Thank you for a great stay.

Superbly appointed accommodation, combined with unbelievable weather gave us a holiday to remember.

Thank you
