    Nice stay in interesting property. Ventnor we know well and the amenities on offer. terraced garden very nice and the sky room . We did not fancy carrying too much up the stairs for a barbecue, but drinks overlooking the sea wonderfull.

    We felt the sitting accomodation at Horizon Retreat would be a bit cramped for a eight people who wanted or needed to spend a lot of time together but fortunately we had a lesser number. Otherwise it would be hard to fault the property itself or its equipement. The location, high above Ventnor, gave superb views particularly from the garden above the house but I would hesitate to say that the town itself was in easy reach.
