The Hambrough – Ventnor, Isle of Wight
Nestled on a pretty street in the coastal town of Ventnor, The Hambrough benefits from both a village-feel location and fabulous sea views. This boutique island hotel has seven individually designed rooms to choose from; all are fresh, light and airy, some with balconies looking across the English Channel. If you are after something more private, then there is a charming cottage for four and a lovely town house, which sleeps ten, available to you, with original features but modern amenities. Head chef Ashley Randle is at the helm in the restaurant where his experience of working with some of the country’s culinary masters, together with ideas from different cultures, have been the inspiration behind his innovative modern European menu, which has quickly garnered a faithful following. The small, friendly staff gives The Hambrough a family-run feel, adding to its charm without compromising on service. On the southern tip of the Isle of Wight and sheltered by St Boniface Down to the north, this is one of the sunniest spots in the UK and a great place for a seaside escape.
