Very comfortable and cosy house, just a stones throw away from good walks, the seafront and pubs. We had everything we needed for a lovely holiday! I'd especially recommend the Bonchurch Inn for dinner, and the lovely coastal path walk into Shanklin.

We had a really splendid week in the house and on the island - the weather was great for us too. The house is so well provided for in terms of cutlery, chinaware and items in the kitchen it was so easy to enjoy. The beds were really comfortable, so we slept well too - in the lovely large rooms. All of us had an enjoyable stay and we all said that wRead moree would like to return maybe next year or the year after. Hide

Leeson House is a beautiful, spacious house, quirky and full of charm well equipped and comfortable perfect for relaxing after exploring the Island. The hidden patio is a real gem, a sun trap with stunning views over Ventnor and out to sea.

We really liked this house. It is very spacious, plenty of soft seating plus kitchen and dining room for eating in. I found the hill to the house quite steep as we don't have a car, but there is enough room off road for two cars. Has sea views and also, woodland to the rear which is accessible. There is also the 'ww2 radar station' to the rear of tRead morehe house, but it is a very steep walk. It is a 10 minute walk into Ventnor, but is on a regular bus route. Good access to all areas of the Island. Hide

The cottage was spacious and well stocked. There is not much parking space, two cars maximum. Internet service was poor and didnt allow for streaming devices which wasnt ideal for the young adults in the group. The cottage is in an ideal location to explore the island.
