Description

Sandpipers at Steephill Cove will provide beautifully furnished holiday accommodation along with possibly the most iconic sea views and scenery on the Island, whether it’s a group of friends coming together or a family holiday, this wonderful holiday home is a truly fabulous place to stay on the Isle of Wight and can sleep up to 6 guests.

Positioned on Steephill Cove’s shoreline, this detached three storey home lies just south-west of the Victorian seaside town of Ventnor.

Steephill is a traditional, unspoilt fishing cove with a sand and shingle beach nestled between rocky cliffs and smugglers coves. The secluded bay has no road access, which makes it a unique hidden gem, the parking and double garage for the property are just a short walk from the cliff top above. Once you find your way down the steps and sloping pathways to the property you certainly won’t be disappointed when you spy the bay, the scenery here is just fantastic, the eclectic mix of buildings in the cove make up a large part of its charm with brightly coloured beach huts and old fisherman’s cottages, with traditional deck chairs, lobster pots and fishing tackle dotted around the area, see what you can find hidden amongst the rock pools or simply just relax and enjoy watching the children swim in the clear waters or play at building sand castles on the beach.

If you like your seafood there are a couple of restaurants in the Cove (seasonal opening) serving fresh crab and lobster often caught by the Cove’s very own fishermen, If a snack is more to your liking, then a takeaway crab pasty would be just the thing from the Crab Shed or if you prefer some cake and coffee then maybe head to the Coves Coffee Shop and indulge in Isle of Wight ice cream and a homemade cake or a sandwich.

Ventnor is just over a mile away. Most of the town is built on a steep hill which leads to the beach, and there are a number of lovely tea shops, pubs and restaurants dotted along the esplanade, as well as quirky and bespoke shops, an award-winning park and a children’s paddling pool.
Stretch your legs and explore the amazing coastal paths in both directions from the property. Alternatively, outdoor pursuits on the island are well catered for and include horse riding, fishing, cycling, paragliding, water sports and golf. There are numerous attractions to discover for all ages on the island, including The Needles with its chairlift, amusement park, boat rides, lighthouse and coloured sands of Alum Bay, Ventnor Botanical Gardens, Blackgang Chine, Tapnell Farm Park and Carisbrooke Castle. Why not pay a visit to Queen Victoria’s favourite holiday residence, Osborne House and its gardens, or the sailing towns of Yarmouth and Cowes.

Place was amazing. Fantastic location, really couldn't be better. Spotlessly clean. Best equipped Air BnB kitchen I have used. Henry met us with a key and even helped with bags. The Island Holiday Company even helped us book ferries. Really would like to give 6 stars....!

Beautiful location with outstanding views. The property had everything we needed and more - from the well stocked kitchen, to the comfortable seating throughout the property, the new mattresses on the beds, a fun downstairs games room and useful utility room. Henry was a fantastic host who met us on arrival, left a very generous welcome pack in the fridge, and then checked in on us when we left. Many thanks for a lovely family holiday.

We had a magical time at Sandpipers, savouring meals overlooking the sea when we weren't in it or rock pooling! The house is generously equipped and very comfortable, a pleasure to have arrived to and spend a week there. We very much hope to visit again in future.
