Petit Tor is a sunny Isle of Wight holiday home just over the road from famous Steephill Cove & other secluded beaches, Ventnor Botanic Gardens & Coastal Footpath. Great views, walking, cycling & family-friendly activities. Walk into Ventnor for shops, pubs and restaurants. In micro-climate of 'Britain's Hottest Garden'. Our own large, tropical gardens to dine & relax in. 4 local downs for walkers. Good for couples, families (+ kids) and well behaved dogs. Friendly new owners June 2016.
Petit Tor is a detached 2 bedroom bungalow with a separate living/dining room, kitchen, showroom/toilet, and bedrooms.
There is plenty of parking space and a wonderful sub-tropical garden stocked with tropical plants and trees.
We offer free wifi and will supply you with an access key in your welcome pack. Wifi signal cannot be guaranteed and can be intermittent.
You will have Petit Tor to yourselves and have use of the driveway and the lower parking bays for parking. You also have full use of the front sub-tropical gardens which are wonderful for dining in, chilling in or playing. Children and dogs are really welcome, please take care to keep them off the raised flowerbeds.
We live next door and work from home so are generally available to help with any queries you may have.
So many of our guests ditch the car when they get here and opt for walking along our amazing coastal paths so we recommend you bring grippy trainers or walking boots if you have them. Access for buggies to Steephill Cove is via a tarmac path which takes you straight to the beach, cafes, restaurants and toilets.
We have lovely clear skies here with little light pollution, great for star-gazing, it also makes it quite dark here at night time - we supply pocket torches at Petit Tor for walking home after a night out but if you have head torches then they're really useful.
- No pets on furniture
I am a creative artist, married to John and we run a graphic design partnership. Our children are almost grown up and we have a cute dog (not in the property that we rent). We are a vegan family and love cooking, tropical gardens, the seaside, walking, drawing, reading and music.
We also love having people come and stay so letting out Petit Tor for holidays is a joy for us, we've met some lovely people and enjoy the Airbnb community.
