DESCRIPTION

Little Grosvenor' is a recently refurbished ground floor apartment in an elegant Victorian Villa. The bright and spacious accommodation features oak flooring, a brand new fitted kitchen with built in ‘Bosch' appliances and new luxury bathroom. Beautifully decorated and furnished throughout in a contemporary style, the apartment is just a ten minute walk to the beach, ideal for couples and small families.

This Victorian seaside town offers interesting architecture, lovely sandy or fine shingle beaches, individual shops, bars, cafes, restaurants and Heritage Centre. Stroll down through the Cascades to the Esplanade with stylish Tapas bar at The Metropole, seaside attractions, children's paddling pool and the popular family pub The Spyglass Inn with spectacular sea views. The ‘New England' style harbour, Ventnor Haven, is home to Blakes Fishery offering excellent fish and chips and locally caught seafood including crab and lobster.

Located on the southern side of the island, sheltered by St Boniface downs Ventnor benefits from its own micro climate; the well known Botanical gardens are a haven for a variety of flora and fauna, many species of which are only found in Mediterranean countries. The historic Ventnor Park has been awarded ‘Park of the Year' by South and South East England in Bloom Awards 2014.

From the Esplanade you can take a level walk, along the sea wall to the pretty village of Bonchurch with it's literary history, wildlife pond and popular Bonchurch Inn. In the opposite direction, from ‘La Falaise' car park, stroll along the cliff path to Steephill Cove, a beautiful sheltered bay with much charm including deck chairs for hire; various cafes offering fantastic locally caught fish and seafood; great crabbing and where tea/coffee is still served in a "Steephill Cove" mug. Absolutely delightful!

Little Grosvenor

  • 4 of 5

This was described as being a ground floor apartment and we knew it did not have a sea view, but on arrival we were rather taken aback to see that it was more like a basement! None the less, it was very spacious, very comfortable, clean and very well appointed. Claire was extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble.

Excellent place to stay the refurb is great with absolutely everything you need for a stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay here with a very warm reception from Claire. The apartment has everything you need with the only requirement you need is food to fill all the cudboards/fridge and freezer up. Great base to explore the island with some good walks around the coasts. The week went so fast, will definitely be going back to Little Grosvenor

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at little Grosvenor. It had everything you could need for a relaxing home from home. It was furnished with top quality furniture and extremely clean and tidy. It was close to all the amenities in Ventnor, but be prepared for a hike up the hills to get back from the seafront. It is a good central base for visiting the island. Claire is the perfect host and nothing is too much trouble for her. I would recommend a stay here you won't be disappointed .

Location

What the South Wight has to offer:

The South of the Isle of Wight incorporates some of the most exciting coastline from long stretches of beach with hidden fossils and exposed dinosaur footprints, to rugged cliff tops with exhilarating views and historical monuments and pretty villages steeped in history, the inspiration for artists and authors old and new.

You must visit

BlackGang Chine is a must for all the family with a fantastic variety of activities for all the family to spend a great day out. Themed areas like Frontierland where you can play Cowboys and Indians in a full sized Cowboy Town, and rides like Waterforce where you can choose the fast 'overflows', or the scary 'plug-hole' - you'll have to see it and experience it to believe it!

Attractions

Superbly situated beside the sparkling waters of Sandown Bay, the twin resorts of Sandown and Shanklin have delighted generations of holiday-makers for over 150 years. Along Culver Parade you'll find tennis, bowls, GoKarting, crazy golf, a pitch and putt course, the Tiger Sanctuary and Dinosaur Isle Museum. At the southern end of town the Heights Health and Leisure Base has indoor swimming pools and further inland is a fine 18 hole golf course.

With its charming thatch-roofed cottages and winding main street lined with tearooms, Godshill is the quintessential English Village. Traveling South to Wroxall there's the Donkey Sanctuary and Appledurcombe House now offering Owl and Falconry displays. Visit Chale Green Deli and Coffee shop and on to the Southern most tip of the Island St Catherine's with its ancient Pepperpot. Ventnor Botanic Garden provides a lovely walk and then lunch at their very successful café.

Walking

There are coastal paths around the Island and this section features the Isle of Wight's famous chines. Whale Chine is the most spectacular in a series of Chines along this stretch of coastline. Devil's Chimney provides an exciting walk through enchanted woodland down to the beach; Chale Bay is stunning; Wealdon Beds which have yielded fossilized remains of dinosaurs. With features like St Catherine's Lighthouse many feel this section offers the best walking and views of the entire Isle of Wight.

Beach Life

Sandown and Shanklin on the south-east coast share a wide crescent of golden sand, with safe swimming, water sports and a range of bars, pubs and cafés. The southern stretch, below Shanklin Chine, is the quietest and most attractive.

Ventnor has a wonderful Mediterranean light and, like Sandown and Shanklin, an enviable sunshine record. Steephill Cove is its prettiest beach, a peaceful little bay with a good beach café. Reach it via the coastal footpath from the Botanic Gardens, or La Falaise car park in Ventnor.

Places to eat

Try the local seafood, in particular crab, lobster, haddock dishes. The vast majority of pubs are highly geared up for food and usually the portions are on the large side. Fresh crab in particular can be tasty from beachside cafe's and can also be purchased from the fisherman at seafood huts selling direct, two places spring to mind: Ventnor Fresh Crab Beach Hut and a fisherman's house at Steephill Cove next to the café'.
