Situated on the southern side of the Isle of Wight, Dicks Retreat (ref UKC701) and Dicks View (ref UK13359) boast stunning panoramic sea views over the English Channel and are ideal bases for couples. Located only ¼-mile from the centre of Ventnor, you can easily leave your car behind and explore the local area on foot. You will find a number of lovely seaside tea shops, pubs and restaurants dotted along the esplanade, as well as some quirky and bespoke shops. The town, which for the most part is built on the steep hill leading to the beach, retains its original seaside charm and makes a great day out for all the family.
Sheltered from the north by St Boniface Downs (owned by the National Trust), Ventnor benefits from its own micro-climate, providing an ideal haven for a variety of flora and fauna. The neighbouring village of Bonchurch lies just to the east of Ventnor and is renowned for its literary connections; writers and poets such as Dickens, Stackpole and Swinburn all resided here for a time.
Sea and cliff walks can be found along the coastal paths in both directions from the property, and outdoor pursuits on the island are well catered for and include horse riding, fishing, cycling, paragliding, water sports and golf. There are numerous attractions to discover for all ages, including The Needles, with its chairlift, amusement park, boat rides, lighthouse and coloured sands of Alum Bay. Why not pay a visit to Queen Victoria’s favourite holiday residence, Osborne House and its gardens, Blackgang Chine, the oldest themed attraction in the UK, Ventnor Botanical Gardens, Carisbrooke Castle or the sailing towns of Yarmouth and Cowes? Whatever you decide, one things for sure, the Isle of Wight has plenty to offer. Beach ½ mile. Shop, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.
These properties can be booked together to accomodate up to 7 guests.
