This quality detached cottage situated close to the town of Ventnor sleeps eight people in four bedrooms.

Jack's Hill is a wonderful detached cottage located one mile from the seaside town of Ventnor on the lovely Isle of Wight. This cottage sleeps eight people in four bedrooms, consisting of three king-size doubles, one of which is on the ground floor, a double with en-suite shower, and a separate bathroom. The cottage also has an open plan living area with a kitchen, dining area and sitting area, and a landing area with table football. Outside there is off road parking for three cars and a decked area with furniture and a barbecue. Jack's Hill is a wonderful place to stay with sandy beaches, bracing walks, and lovely gardens nearby.


The accommodation was first class in every way and no expense had been spared with the fixtures and fittings. The kitchen was extremely well equipped with plenty of high class crockery (all Denby), cooking utensils and cutlery. Everywhere was spacious, extremely clean and the contemporary d?cor made us feel very comfortable and relaxed. It was by far the best self catering accommodation we have ever stayed in, and so well equipped (with a large american style fridge freezer and quality range cooker) that we chose to stay in and cook several times rather than going out to eat. Two of the bedrooms were huge, and the light, airy, feel of the place meant that our party of 3 couples and 1 toddler had plenty of personal space. In fact we were able to invite another party of 5 people (who were staying nearby) round for a meal one evening, as there was ample equipment, space and seating plus a dishwasher to take care of the washing up. It was very untypical of a normal holiday let and it appears that it was not originally built, or fitted out, with the rental market in mind. It was slightly out of the way, approx a 25 minute walk to Ventnor, with a steep hill to climb on the way back, but this did not spoil our enjoyment of staying in this fantastic house. We would definitely return, if we holiday in this area again, and would highly recommend it to others.

This was one of the very best holiday homes we have ever stayed in. It was new and very modern, we could not fault it. The whole experience was excellent. The owners were helpful and friendly. The location was also ideal on the island.

We rented this property for 7 people which included 3 children aged 8-11. The property is very modern and spacious and well equipped. Good location although not within walking distance to anything, you do need to have a car. It is located on Steep Hill and it really lives up to its name so beware. We were particularly impressed with the amount and quality of board games, books and lego supplied for the children. The table football went down exceptionally well with the children and big kids (men). The garden is a lovely sun trap with the back of the house opening up fully, great for an afternoon or evening drink. It is a shame there isn't a view of the bay as this would make it perfect. Our only criticism is we had to wash glasses and cutlery as they were very greasy. There was even a spatula which had been used for frying and put back in the drawer without cleaning. This I am sure was an oversight by the cleaners and the remainder of the property was immaculate. There is a dishwasher but you need to bring your own dishwasher tabs and toiletries are not provided. We would return and we would recommend to others. The property would have received a higher rating had it supplied luxury toiletries and we did not have to do a lot of washing up before using some of the equipment.

It was fantastic - a home from home! Everything was there that you would need for a perfect holiday and it was all excellent quality. The location was a great base to go off and explore the Island.
