A civil parish situated on the coast of the Isle of Wight, Ventnor is a place that is both gorgeous and truly unique. Sheltered by the chalk downs of the magnificent St. Boniface Down, Ventnor has an advantage – protected by the cliffs, Ventnor sees more sunshine and warmth than its surrounding areas. This difference means that certain tropical plants can be grown in Ventnor, which the colourful Ventnor Botanical Garden boasts. Rent a cosy holiday cottage in Ventnor with your loved one or a group of friends and enjoy all that this magical place has to offer. Admire the waterfall at the Cascade Gardens, and walk its full length from the town to the beach. Once there, you can go for a refreshing dip or go bathing, always surrounded by natural views. Back in town, there are many charming independent shops – spend an afternoon digging through antiques and finding souvenirs.
