The village of Bonchurch lies just to the east of Ventnor and is renowned for its literary connections. Writers and poets such as Dickens, Stackpole and Swinburn all resided here for a time. Dickens remarked the village was ’the prettiest place I ever saw in my life, at home or abroad.’

The Victorian seaside town of Ventnor is situated on the southern side of the Isle of Wight, right in the heart of the famed Undercliff, much of which is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Visitors will find a great variety of established local shops, restaurants and pubs serving locally caught, fresh fish and locally brewed ales. Sheltered from the north by the National Trust owned St Boniface Downs, the area benefits from its own micro-climate, which provides an ideal haven for a variety of flora and fauna.

Explore the rock pools, great local walks and easy access to the many attractions the Isle of Wight has to offer. Outdoor pursuits on the island are well catered for and include horse riding, fishing, cycling, paragliding, water sports and golf. There are numerous attractions across the island to discover for all ages including The Needles, with its chairlift, amusement park, boat rides, lighthouse and coloured sands of Alum Bay. Pay a visit to Queen Victoria’s favourite holiday residence, Osborne House and its gardens, Blackgang Chine, the oldest themed attraction in the UK, Ventnor Botanical Gardens, Tapnell Farm Park, Carisbrooke Castle or the sailing towns of Yarmouth and Cowes. Beach 350 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant ¾ mile.
Orchard Leigh Cottage can be booked together with Grange Cottage (ref UKC3050) and Orchard Leigh Villa (ref W43433) to accommodate up to 22 guests.

    A little hard to find, and you certainly have to be able to do a three-point turn! But parking right outside the door, which is great. Lovely patio furniture to relaxing in. House was fabulous, spacious, clean and only a couple of minutes from the main road do you reach anywhere on the island, but still lovely and quiet with very comfy beds. The on-suites were great. Lovely welcome pack on arrival too. Every amenity you want in the house. Would recommend to couples or a family as you could close the gates if you wanted. I highly recommend and hope to book again another year. Gail

    Lovely accommodation. Comfortable and clean, but sometimes quite noisy with four adults walking around with no carpet. Location felt slightly isolated- needed to drive to shops, tricky walk to pub and beach. Also no WiFi yet.

    Orchard Leigh is a fantastic place to stay, spotlessly clean with tasteful furnishings and the beds are some comfy with good quality sheets. It’s a great base to explore the surrounding areas with the beach just a stroll away. We are looking forward to returning to this immaculate house in the picturesque and peaceful Bonchurch.

    Overall a good choice. However, there wasn't a visitors book or local information folder/booklet obviously available. The outside area could have been better utilised by not having fences, but I can understand why they were installed. NO wifi until next year! These are minor bits of nit picking. All in all a lovely setting and a beautifully appointed cottage.
