DescriptionSituated just a few minutes from Ventnor town centre and beach, with spectacular sea views from every vantage point, is Seagulls Rest self-catering cottage. This superb holiday accommodation is an ideal base from which to explore the rest of the attractions of the Isle of Wight. There is a 9-hole golf course on the downland at the back of the house and the Downs also provide many wonderful walks.
The cottage is semi-detached and spread over three floors. It accommodates five and in addition, a cot and high chair are available if requested when booking. Seagulls Rest is fully furnished and very well equipped to provide you with a home-away-from-home to enjoy your Isle of Wight holiday. All gas and electric is included in the price.
The ground floor consists of a utility room, kitchen and dining room, the first floor has a single bedroom, family bathroom and sitting room and the second floor includes the master bedroom with queen-size bed, a double bedroom with king-size zip ‘n’ link bed that converts into twin beds (please request when booking) and wc with hand basin.
All linen and towels are provided for your stay and as well as gas-fired central heating, there are cosy electric “log-burning” stoves in the dining and living rooms. There is ample crockery, glasses, cutlery and cooking utensils for five people. In the kitchen there is an electric cooker, microwave, fridge-freezer and washing machine. The utility room contains a tumble drier and an extra fridge for the cold drinks. The dining room has sliding doors onto a terrace with spectacular views out to sea. In the sideboard and on the bookcase there is a good supply of books, cards, board games and videos for rainy-day entertainment (although Ventnor has the best climate on the Isle of Wight). On the floor above, the sitting room has two comfortable sofas, hi-fi, flat-screen TV, DVD player and video recorder.
The back garden is equipped with a swing bench, a table and six chairs and there is a barbecue in the little shed. In front, on the terrace outside the dining room, are two wooden benches. A sun lounger and comfy chair are also available in the shed, together with another table.
Ventnor is a Victorian town built into the side of the cliffs which, though very beautiful, makes for very steep roads and gardens. For this reason, the house is not suitable for the infirm as there are many very steep steps both inside and out. This also makes the garden unsuitable for dogs, and small children will need supervision. However, as long as you can cope with steps and slopes, you will find Seagulls Rest is a wonderful place to base yourself on the Isle of Wight.
