Visit Ventnor and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Ventnor, Isle of Wight, owes its reputation as a winter holiday and health resort to its sheltered southerly aspect which ensures a mild climate and encourages luxuriant vegetation. The town lies at the foot of an 800-ft hill. The steep descent to sea-level is made by gradients of 1 in 4, and walking through the winding streets can be arduous. There are three distinct tiers from the shore with flights of steps in places to ease the way up. A thoughtful Town Council has put seats at appropriate intervals.
Ventnor has a pier built in 1955 and a small esplanade. The sea-front is bisected by a cascade which runs down past the Winter Garden Pavilion, with its glass-encased stairs to the roof and sun terrace. These give wide views over the coast, from Luccombe to the North and St Catherine's Point, Blackgang and Chale to the West and South.
