About Debby Robinson
I live just a few minutes away from Ocean View at Pine Point, my Bed & Breakfast. Unlike agents or absent landlords I am always available should there be any problems at all or if you need any local hints and tips during your stay.
Why Debby Robinson chose Ventnor
Ventnor is a very special place - the nicest place on the Isle of Wight in my (very biased) opinion - and Ocean View is a special cottage. As soon as you open the door the sea view captivates - it's a real 'Tardis' of a holiday hide out.
What makes this Cottage unique
Dare I say location, location, location? If you come to stay by the sea then that is precisely what you want to see out of your windows. Ocean Views delivers, with stunning views you'll find hard to forget.

Great introduction to Ventnor
The cottage was very roomy for 2A and a dog, and had all you could need. Is within walking distance of town, which has several supermarkets, cafes, pubs, restaurants. We only stayed a few nights but couldn't fault it. Lovely sea views, great access front and back. Only downside is parking, but being off-peak we didn't have a problem finding spots nearby. No milk on arrival, but nothing is perfect!
Many thanks for the lovely review Lisa. Remembered I'd forgotten the milk when it was too late - son been in hospital & stress zaps my memory!
IOW super holiday
Had a lovely stay bed super comfy
And oh so clean , super house
Always so lovely to get a really appreciative review - I always worry about the cottage being presented 'just so'. Come again soon!
Awesome family break
Beautiful house with stunning views. Our host Debbie was always on hand with the little things that families need to make this a super relaxing holiday!
A lovely, warm, clean house, with everything you need. We loved the views and the fabulous walks on the downs.
The cottage was as described. Lots of light and lovely to wake up to a view of the sea.
Plenty space downstairs and in the two double bedrooms and bathroom. Lovely places to walk the dog . We enjoyed ourselves.
Great family weekend away
lovely house in good location with super view of the sea . We had a great family weekend away before our granddaughters go off to university .
The Bevan's treated the house as their own and got 'guests of the year award' for being conscientious about recycling & rubbish handling - which is really important on an island with limited landfill : )
Ventnor is situated at the southern most tip of the, (roughly diamond-shaped), Isle of Wight. Being built on terraces around the natural amphitheatre of Ventnor Bay, the town enjoys fabulous sea views out across the English Channel.
Ventnors' hay day was in Victorian times. Attracted by the mild climate and fashion for ‘health giving’ sea bathing, the well to do built splendid villas and huge numbers of visitors arrived by train or by pleasure boats which stopped at the pier. The railway and pier may be long gone but the Victorian bathing machines, wheels removed and painted candy colours, are still in use as beach huts.
Ventnor has a great selection of cafés, bars and restaurants offering everything from fine dining to fish & chips.
Those wanting to cook at home can find excellent local produce available in Ventnors' independent shops which include artisan bakers, fish landed locally, a greengrocer, butcher/deli.
You will find tea, coffee, milk etc at the cottage, ready for your arrival.
There are stunning coastal walks from Ventnor Beach – East along the sea wall towards Bonchurch and West, over the cliffs, towards Steephill Cove where you can eat crab and lobster just a few yards from the waters' edge.
Northwards, up on the Downs behind the town, you can enjoy breathtaking panoramic views, taking in both the Solent and the English Channel from the highest vantage point on the island.
The Isle of Wight enjoys more sunshine than anywhere else in Britain and Ventnor's own micro climate means that the Botanic Garden grows species not grown elsewhere in the country.
Ventnor has two museums - The Heritage Museum and the Longshoreman’s Museum. Although tiny, they have fascinating photographic records of the area.
Just a few miles along the coast is Blackgang Chine, a friendly little amusement park, great for young children. It’s an eccentric mix of rides, fairies and dinosaurs, all perched on ever diminishing cliff top gardens.
Going inland from Ventnor you’ll find historic Appledurcombe House and the Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary.
Car ferries run from Portsmouth, Southampton and Lymington on the mainland to Fishbourne, Cowes and Yarmouth on the island.
The train from London Waterloo links directly to the Fastcat passenger ferry from Portsmouth to Ryde Pier where the train connects to Shanklin – a short bus or taxi ride from Ventnor. A Hovercraft also makes the Portsmouth to Ryde crossing.
