Cottage in St. Lawrence, Ventnor, Isle of Wight, England - Converted From Village Inn. Perfect Base For Families Or Couples

Mole End is a delightful two-bedroom holiday cottage in the peaceful village of St. Lawrence near Ventnor on the South coast of the Isle of Wight, offering superior holiday accommodation for up to four people. From its origins as a 19th century village inn, Mole End has been converted into a cosy home away from home. With its stunning sea views, comfy sitting room and welcoming kitchen, it's the perfect base for an island holiday, whether you’re a beach lover, walker, sailor, crazy-golfer or just looking for a few days away from the hurly-burly. Nestling in the Undercliff, with its famed micro-climate, the cottage is perfectly located just a few minutes from Ventnor Botanic Gardens, the Isle of Wight Coastal Path, and pretty, secluded Steephill Cove. Ventnor's bars and restaurants, offering everything from pub grub to fine dining, are just two miles away and you can reach all the tourist attractions on the island within half an hour.

About Lev Parikian

.

Lev Parikian purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Lev Parikian chose Ventnor

We've been coming to the Isle of Wight for many years and have always loved the feeling you get the moment you get on the ferry, as if you're leaving the cares of the world behind you.

In particular we found ourselves coming back time and again to the south of the island, the Undercliff, with its mixture of lush vegetation and rugged landscape, as well as wonderful beaches and great food for the whole family.

The area offers something for everyone, from adventure-park-mad kids (Blackgang Chine) to walkers (the Coastal Path is a couple of minutes away).

What makes this cottage unique

Mole End has already become our home away from home and we've taken great care to make it as welcoming as possible for our guests. A lot of the work was done by the previous owners, who paid great attention to detail when converting it from its former existence as part of the village pub.

The fantastic sea views from many parts of the property are an obvious feature – but turn your gaze inwards and there's great pleasure to be had there too, whether it's sitting round the kitchen table with a board game and a cup of coffee, lounging in the cosy sitting room or relaxing in a hot bath with a good book and a g&t.

We always have a relaxing time at Mole End, and we hope that our guests will too.

Very hard to beat

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in many holiday homes but I think this home will be very hard to beat. Molton Brown in the bathroom, Dartington crystal wine glasses, a wide range of authors ranging from William Shakespeare to Wilbur smith in the living room as well as some superb DVD's. The care and attention to details in every room made this a real home from home. And finally my litmus test, I was making a pear cocktail and found everything I needed, including a stainless steel peeler which was sharp and effective, a beautiful wooden chopping board with sharp weighty knives. a great blender, a glass lemon juicer and a sieve, there was nothing missing. Thank you so much to the owners for a first class holiday home.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage with really nice furniture, lighting, pictures etc. Everything you could wish for including excellent welcome hamper with a top class bottle of wine. The local information is brilliant - we loved the small laminated guides to local walks. The owners couldn't be more friendly and helpful - thank you.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful weekend at Mole End in November with our 17-month old daughter and couldn't have wished for better. The cottage was clean and welcoming and had all the little extras that made it a special break. Lev and Tessa could not have been more accomodating and their attention to detail, including a welcome basket and an excellent local guide made it a wonderful short break. Will definitely be returning.

Christmas at Mole End

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely Christmas in Mole End. The cottage is so well equipped with everything you could think of for a lovely few days away. It was made extra special by arriving to find a beautiful Christmas tree and decorations throughout the cottage. The cottage was so warm and homely with the beautiful log burner and it all made for such an extra special Christmas. The whole cottage was fantastically clean with so many thoughtful extras in the kitchen and bathroom. We enjoyed some beautiful, yet muddy coastal walks (the laminated guides were very useful) but what can you expect in December! We even managed to break the children away from their electronic gadgets and actually entertain ourselves with traditional games out of the games box which was great! Thank you so much Lev and Tessa for such a lovely Christmas break.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were really impressed with the cottage, it was perfect for our weekend. We particularly liked the quirky decor and personal touches which made it a unique place to stay. The owners were very helpful and provided a useful and entertaining guidebook to the cottage and local area, which was much appreciated. I would visit again!

Location

Coast/Beach:

There are several beaches nearby:

Steephill Cove (2 mins drive) is the ultimate unspoilt English beach. A rocky fishing cove with a safe, sandy beach, cafes and an excellent fish restaurant, it's inaccessible by car (park at the top & walk down, or it's a 20-minute walk along the Coastal Path).

Woody Bay (5 mins walk) is an idyllic secluded beach only accessible on foot.

Ventnor (5 mins by car) is a traditional small English resort.

Compton Bay (20 mins by car) is excellent for surfing.

Travel:

All the island's ferry ports are easily accessible.

Fishbourne (car ferry to Portsmouth, 45-minute crossing) is 13 miles (30 minutes)

Cowes (car ferry to Southampton, 1 hour crossing) 15 miles (40 minutes)

Yarmouth (car ferry to Lymington, 40-minute crossing) 18 miles (40 minutes)

Distances:

Ventnor (pubs, restaurants, cafes, shops, bakery, butcher, fishmonger, antiques) 2 miles.

Niton (pubs, very good local general store) 2 miles.

Botanic Gardens 1 mile.

St. Catherine's Lighthouse 3 miles.

Carisbrooke Castle 10 miles.

The Needles 18 miles.

Further Details:

The Isle of Wight offers a wide variety of activities for everyone, whether you're an outdoorsy type or of a more sedentary inclination.

Families are especially well catered for, with adventure parks, beaches, a steam railway, zoos and wildlife parks, and crazy golf galore.

But it's not just for kids – the island has much to offer visitors of all ages. There are over 500 miles of footpaths – stroll down the road for a couple of minutes and you're on the 67-mile coastal path, or head inland for one of the many tranquil woodland or downs walks. Or go for a bike ride on the island's extensive network of cycle paths.

Maybe you prefer riding, birdwatching, fishing, water sports, paragliding, golf or even tree climbing — the island is a paradise for outdoor activity enthusiasts.

And for those with more gentle tastes there's Queen Victoria's residence Osborne House, Carisbrooke Castle, St. Catherine's lighthouse, Brading Roman villa, Godshill model village and much more.

When the day is done you'll want to eat – seafood is obviously on the menu (the hunt for the best crab on the island continues, with many worthy contenders), but whatever your tastes you'll find something that fits the bill, from family-friendly pubs to top-notch haute cuisine. And with the island's wealth of fresh produce, home cooking is also a delight.

In short, you won't run out of interesting and fun things to do. We've been coming for years, and we've only just scraped the surface.
