The property accommodates 6 guests and is comfortably furnished with two double and single bedrooms, family bathroom and separate shower room, fully fitted kitchen and open plan lounge/diner.

Ventnor Town

Ventnor on the South of the Isle of Wight is a traditional seaside resort, and one of Britain's most famous Victorian health resorts due to its unique micro-climate.

The town lies beneath St Boniface Down (the highest point on the Isle of Wight) and for the most part is built on the side of a steep hill leading down to the seafront and beach.

The beach huts that line the back of the beach are converted Victorian “bathing machines” and are available to hire, along with deckchairs.

Ventnor has plenty of things to do both in the town and nearby.

Ventnor Beach is a great suntrap, and the sand and shingle beach is great for sunbathing and family swimming.

Ventnor Harbour and the bandstand development are very prominent on the seafront and offer a great viewing platform to look out to sea, and the Ventnor Haven Fishery sells the best in local crab and lobster.

On the main promenade there is a traditional arcade with a range of amusements, then opposite the harbour the spectacular Cascade Gardens run down the side of the cliff where the main road zig-zags its way back up into the main town.

Further along there is a children’s paddling pool which features a giant map of the Isle of Wight, and from here there are great walks to Wheelers Bay and Bonchurch along the Sea Wall.

A short distance from the seafront at the Western side of the town you can stroll through the beautiful Victorian Ventnor Park, which won the "Park of the Year Award" at the South and South East England in Bloom awards in 2014. This leads onto the famous Ventnor Botanic Gardens at the Undercliff, where the town’s micro-climate can be truly appreciated in a 22 acre sub-tropical paradise.

A short walk from here and you will discover one of the Isle of Wight’s best kept secrets, Steephill Cove, which is one of the most relaxing beaches on the Island.

Along Ventnor esplanade there are several pubs, cafes and restaurants offering a variety of food and refreshments, with a number of alternative places to eat further into town.

With the local fisheries there are some great fish and seafood options available at many of the eateries, and some of the local hotels are highly recommended for their fine dining experiences.

In recent years Ventnor has become the regular host of several big arts and culture events, with the Isle of Arts Festival and Ventnor Fringe.

It is also one of the Isle of Wight’s main carnival towns, with daytime and illuminated processions taking place during the summer months.

A short drive along the coast is one of the Isle of Wight’s best known attractions, Blackgang Chine, and regular events are hosted here to entertain all the family.

You can enjoy the spectacular scenery from the top deck of one of the regular buses that serves the town.

Catch a bus northwards to Shanklin, Sandown & Ryde, or travel across the Island to Godshill, Newport or Cowes.

We've had a wonderful holiday, this cottage was perfect for our party of 3 generations - 1 disabled senior, 2 adults and 2 children aged 4 and 2.
We've visited most of the Island within the week and lots of attractions, most we would have loved to visit again, but we didn't have time.
The facilities in this cottage are fantastic and is like home from home. We will definitely be returning. A big thank you to Emily for the bottle
of wine and milk on arrival.

Many thanks

Fantastic holiday - loved the location and the property. Thanks !!!

We had a great holiday - location was perfect for us ! Lovely holiday home !
Hope to see you soon !!

Lovely place to stay, everything a family would need. Nice to see the guinea fowl. Neighbour lovely and helpful when council closing the road.
Weather could not have been better.
Hope to be back again next year.


We have had a very happy week on the sunny Isle of Wight. Such a peaceful cottage and surroundings which we have enjoyed.
We explored evening walks down to Woody Bay, great days on the beach at Shanklin and a windy but worthwhile day out at the Needles
and the Old Battery. Enjoyed wildlife spotting too, our list includes rabbits, bats and very cheeky guinea fowls !
Thank you Isle of Wight for another happy week !

P.S Finally on our last morning a red Squirrel put in an appearance in the trees on the western boundary. In the back ground a buzzard was calling
and we enjoyed listening to the nightingale in the evening and early morning. Got all the children our with their binoculars. Just the job for "show and tell" next term.

We have had a lovely week. Lovely spacious cottage and garden for the children to play in.
We enjoyed watching the wildlife. Would recommend Tapnell Farm, good for sunny or rainy day
as a lot is undercover. Sandown beach is great for a sunny day.
Our highlight was seeing the family of badgers.

We have been coming to the Isle of Wight since 2004 and this is by far one of the best cottages we have stayed in.
The surroundings are so peaceful and we made a couple of trips to nearby, Woody Bay. Also, a special thanks to
the gardener / caretaker.

Hope to return soon!

P.S. Loved the cockerel !

This is the best bungalow in teh world !!! I was only 7 years old when we first came here and we all still treasure coming every year.
It's always is the best experience you can get on the Isle of Wight, the views are lovely, the rooms are lovely and it's such a
privilege to be here. I hope we come backj again and will miss this place so so much.
Thanks for the chocolates and wine.
Best holiday thank you so much.

Lovely time to visit the Island, weather perfect.
Great place to stay in a wonderful peaceful setting. Saw lots of wildlife, badgers, bats owls, fox as well
as baby bunnie, chickens and guinea fowl, and red squirrels on our travels around the Island.
Great walks in the area, especially the walk along the old undercliff road to Niton and the Buddle Inn.

Thanks for the wine and chocolates.

Wonderful 2nd visit to this holiday home. Last visit 39 years ago!
Amazing weather all week allowing us to visit lots of I.O.W attractions.
Enjoyed all the wildlife, especially seeing the badgers.

Thanks for a great week.

We last stayed in Baltija around 15 years ago ! It was nice to return.
The raised terrace at the front is a great addition, especially as it has resulted in a handrail for the steps.
The two most important things for us are comfortable beds and comforable sofas and all passed the test.
We were visted each morning by a hen and her 10 chicks (large gap under rear fence) plus a rabbit.
One morning the neighbours guinea fowl, got in, even though the gate was closed ! Didn't see the badger
we have enjoyed a very relaxing week.

Thank you for the wine, cakes and milk, we enjoyed on our arrival.
We have had a lovely holiday, touring round the Island, seeing the views and countryside, even
the daily visits of the guinea fowl and the cockeral letting us know his presence, also the rabbits hopping about.

We've had a lovely holiday - the weathers been glorious ! and not forgetting the rabbits, birds and the wonderful sightings of the badgers.
The cottage was spacious and comfortable, the only criticisms we have were : the double beds were covered by single sheets and some duvets were too small for the covers,
no mirrors in the single rooms !! The bathrooms were great.
Although we apprechiated the hairdryer - the flex was not long enough to reach any mirror and so couldn't see what we were doing.
We very much apprechiated the wine, chocs and milk etc.

We love it here !!! This is our third time and each time it gets harder to leave, not only
for the children but the adults too.

The wine, chocolates and milk were an added bonus and very much appreciated.

Hope to be back soon.

Once again we have had a relaxing holiday - Thank you
