Great cottage in a wonderful location.
Just loved Canute Cottage. Everything you need is in the cottage and more. It was spotlessly clean and the bed was very comfortable. The many extras supplied by Jeane and Tony were really appreciated. The position right opposite the beach was beautiful and we could have sat all day and looked at the ocean. If only we could have stayed longer.
An absolutely lovely place to stay, everything had been thought of. Clean, & well decorated. Great place for kids on the seafront. Parking permit allows for free parking almost anywhere on the island. We had a lovely long weekend.
Situate directly on the esplanade at Ventnor. Just open the door and cross the road and one is on the beach. Perfect.
Free parking at most locations on the Island, coupled with a full Sky TV package make this a bargain holiday not to be missed.
The property was well furnished and decorated. It was light and airy.
There is so much to do on the Island for individuals and families alike. Ventnor has lots to offer especially in establishments for dining.
When I return (which is annually) I'll check and see if Canute Cottage is available.
We stayed in this fabulous little place right on the esplanade in Ventnor and thoroughly enjoyed our week!
The cottage was very clean, well equipped, comfortable and in a superb position. Plenty of places to eat along the sea front, and lovely walks along the cliff path. Well worth a trip to the botanic gardens too. We had fantastic weather which always helps, and swam in the sea most days.The beach was very clean and litter free.
We stayed here for a week in August. It was the first time we went to Ventnor and the first time we stayed in Canute Cottage. The whole stay was amazing and we're already looking at booking our next stay. Very highly recommend this place!
The cottage is modern and really well kept throughout. The kitchen was so well equipped that my husband managed to make a full roast dinner on the Sunday without any issues. The shower is very powerful and the heated towel rails are a lovely extra. The beds are really comfy (although the double bed was a tad short for my tall husband). The full Sky package was much appreciated in the evenings when we didn't go out. We watched some great movies and my hubby didn't miss any of the football. Wifi works perfectly too. The owners are lovely and very helpful. On arrival, they had left us a lovely cake, some biscuits, milk & fresh bread which was very much appreciated.
The location is excellent - you are literally a stone's throw away from the beech and it was a delight to wake up early, take my coffee to the beech (5 steps away!) and watch the sun come up whilst the waves crashed on the beech. Pure bliss!
Our 11-year-old son loved the place too. He had the freedom to explore, make friends & play in the sea. Having the added benefit of the fully equipped beach hut was fab.
All in all, a wonderful holiday and we can't wait to go back!
We stayed at the cottage with our two grandaughters age 7 & 11. The cottage is very clean, comfortable and well equipped. A lovely welcome from the owners including home made cakes. The position is fantastic for the beach and the use of the beach hut is an excellent facility. Plenty of places to eat out and local shops. However I found the double bed a problem - I am 6ft 4! A slightly larger toaster would be an asset. We had a lovely holiday and the children will remember their stay on the Isle of Wight when they return to the USA. We would certainly recommend this cottage.
We stayed at Canutes for a week. This is a lovely,clean, newly decorated and updated cottage right on the front at Ventnor. Its very bright and airy with an excellent sea veiw with skylights at the back of the property to catch the sea breeze and sunlight.
The decor is very simple but befits the modernised property and is very calming. Just across the single lane road 20ft away is the cottages beach hut with windbreak,deck chairs,buckets and spades etc. You can also hire sun loungers etc from a local business that runs and maintains the beach and its very clean and rubbish free.
We had some excellent days ,chilling out ,reading and watching the tide slowly roll in and it gets the sun for most of the day. There some excellent local eateries and cafes on the front but under 10 mins walk away is Ventnor town center which has some lovely little shops and a couple of small supermarkets (coop and tescos). Also some lovely places to eat and excellent fish and chips at The Chippy.
We didnt need to park a car but a parking permit comes with the flat. We recommend using the buses to get about and take in the veiws and get an excellent value Vectis bus 7 day rover ticket for £24 which is valid all over the island.There are some lovely local walks but some very pretty villages to visit as well as more traditional seaside places near by.
Osbourne house is well worth a visit and the walk across the downs from Freshwater to the Needles has amazing veiws.Theres is loads to do on the island but Ventnor is a lovely place to come back to at the end of the day and Canutes is the perfect retreat.
