Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday cottage in Ventnor - Smugglers Cottage
'Home from Home' 4 bedrm Cottage in Central Ventnor, Walkers & Cyclists paradise
Get away from it all on the beautiful and peaceful Isle of Wight. The moment you get off the ferry, you will feel the difference. Our lovely 4 bedroom holiday cottage, 'Smugglers', in the centre of Ventnor, on the Isle of Wight, sleeps 7 people comfortably, plus a cot if required. There is a double bedroom which has a single room adjoining & a double room with a twin room adjoining. There is a shower room, and a family bathroom fitted with a toilet, basin & bath with shower attachment. Downstairs there is a comfortable living room with a wood burning stove, leading to the dining room & newly fitted kitchen. The courtyard garden has seating & a barbecue area. At the side of the holiday cottage is a useful covered passageway that lends itself perfectly to storage of bicycles, wellington boots, kayaks & surfboards. The double doors open onto the road for easy loading & unloading. There is no parking at the property, however there are two car parks which are less than 5 minutes walk away. The bus service is fantastic, running every half hour through the day & every hour through the night. Bus stop 2 minutes from the cottage. We regret that, due to the steepness of Tulse Hill & the roads around Ventnor, the property is not suitable for the infirm.
This charming holiday cottage, built in the early 1800's at the beginning of Ventnor's popularity, has all the modern comforts you require to have wonderful holiday. The kingsize beds in the double rooms have pocket sprung mattresses to give you a great nights sleep.

About Matt and Sally Clark
We returned to the Isle of Wight in 2011 and now live in Wroxall just five minutes north of Ventnor. We love the area, with it's beaches, rolling countryside and downland, especially because we have two terriers who live for their walks.
Matt and Sally Clark purchased this cottage in 2012
Why Matt and Sally Clark chose Ventnor
We fell in love with 'Smugglers' as soon as we stepped inside the door. It has a wonderful cosy feel to it, but is deceptively spacious.
It was built early on in Ventnor's history - about 1830. The garden is pretty and sheltered and the resident neighbours are delightful.

We have had a fabulous weekend here at Smugglers - thank you for the very welcome welcome pack - it appealed too all the girls of all ages! The house is lovely, equipped with everything we needed, and we all had a great nights sleep in very comfortable beds!
