Ventnor’s restaurants, bars and shops are on your doorstep and are a popular draw to the town. Throughout the year cultural events such as music and arts festival mean there is always something going on.
Stone walls surround this delightful two bedroom home with a grand entrance through double gates to driveway parking. The Manor House itself forms another attractive view to the front and the single storey cottage with its bow windows, dimpled glazing and stone walls is consistent with the vernacular of this most ancient original landmark dwelling, one of the oldest in the town.
Access to Manor Cottage is through iron gates to the side courtyard and front door. With glazed panes, the wooden front door brings plenty of light into this fresh hallway.

A brand new white shower room with ceramic floor tiles, a glass brick external window within the fully tiled shower and twinkly recessed LED ceiling lighting. The very large shower has a Mira unit and glass door and an extractor fan above. A pedestal wash basin with light and shaver point and a dual flush low level w.c. complete the suite. The shiny chrome of the ladder-style heated towel rail continues the luxury feel of this glamorous shower room.
Old stone walls surround the cottage with a passageway allowing access around all sides. The paved courtyard garden is well protected by the stone wall and fencing above and offers a perfect space for sheltered outdoor eating and barbecues. There is gated driveway parking for one vehicle.
Manor Cottage enjoys an enviable combination of proximity to town and beach, views up to the vertiginous green landscape of the downs and yet remains secluded in its protected spot. St. Catherine’s Church provides another lovely view towards the sea.
