“Peaceful Retreat”
Reviewed July 31, 2012 for a stay in October 2011

The House the landlady & landlord are so very welcoming and cannot do enough to help. The kitchen is the best stocked kitchen with all you could possibly need, everything is there for you to use so no need to pack the kitchen sinks. The wet room was very handy as we had a disabled family member with us. There were 6 adults in our party and there was enough room for us all. If we had one little thing it was that the two single beds in the third room are probably OK for kids but are not comfortable for adults. The garden is very peaceful and we loved the wild life (badger).

The immediate area is fantastic with a nice pub just down the lane and the see just a bit further. A very good base for all you would like to do on the Island. The island is magical too. Best value for money meals are at the Spyglass Inn Ventnor, Best fish and chips are at the little chip shop called Ocean view on Ocean view rd. Ventnor.
