                                                                                                      You can read on other people’s reviews just how idyllic, charming, well-appointed and beautifully decorated The Hermitage is. And I agree with them all! The photos really are a true depiction of the accommodation. It can feel like the only reasons you want to get out of that huge, comfortable bed are for the stunning views over the English Channel, or to soak in the huge whirlpool tub. However, It’s exploring your surroundings that’s makes staying here even more attractive and enjoyable. As an ex-Islander, I remember when Ventnor’s Victorian grandeur had faded, but recently it seems the smart money has moved in. Whilst neighbouring Sandown and Shanklin still caters for those seeking sun, sea and sand, Ventnor has definitely gone upmarket. The Hermitage is a short walk from some very smart cafés, bars and restaurants, particularly those on the Esplanade. The Spyglass is a great traditional pub (a proper Pint of Prawns!) and the Ale & Oyster is one of many eateries that take pride in using local produce. Back in the town, Cantina does great tapas, there’s a few more proper pubs and of course, there's Perks Bar - a must for those with a curiosity for unusual or themed venues! Indeed, Ventnor was a great starting point for us “foodies”. The Royal Hotel is also excellent and for a real treat, Michelin-starred chef Robert Thompson’s restaurant is a short drive away. There are so many wonderful places to eat and drink on the Island, it’s well worth doing your research before you arrive. You’ll need to walk it all off, of course. The Hermitage was a great base from which to explore some wonderful walks and stunning scenery. Ask Leslie or indeed any of the locals about Steephill Cove, St. Catherine’s Lighthouse, The “Pepperpot”, Newtown Creek. We walked at Compton Bay on New Year’s Eve and it was breath-taking (and not because it was cold!). Many visitors don’t know or don’t bother about these places which is a shame as they don’t know what they’re missing out on. If you’re looking for quaint towns, Yarmouth is a 40 minute drive along a stunning coast road and of course, Cowes is always worth a visit, especially during the Round The Island Race, Cowes Week or the Cowes Classic powerboat racing. But above all, we got to come back to this beautiful, cosy, comfortable cottage. We’d recommend it to anyone and can’t wait for our next visit.
