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; all are fresh, light and airy, some with balconies looking across the English Channel. If you are after something more private, there is a charming cottage for four and a lovely town house, which sleeps ten, with original features but modern amenities. The recent appointment of multi award-winning Executive Chef Matthew Tomkinson is already elevating The Hambrough’s reputation as one of the Island’s top culinary destinations. Matthew brings with him a wealth of experience, as a Roux Scholarship winner and having been awarded a Michelin star twice, his light, classical style menus garnering a faithful following. The small, friendly staff give 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 perfect for a seaside escape.
