Petit Tor

Just yards from Steephill Cove, the round the Island coastal path and The Botanic Gardens and 15 minutes walk from Ventnor town. All the Isle of Wight’s historic attractions and famous festivals are a short drive away.

The Smile of Wight

The best of UK sunshine

Petit Tor is situated on the beautiful South East coast of the Isle of Wight in a Victorian Spa Resort area called Ventnor.

Petit Tor is just metres away from Steephill Cove and the Botanic Gardens. This area is a secret hideaway for those who visit year after year! It is also just a short, glorious walk into town, either along the coastal path or along the pavement to the cascade, beach, shops and restaurants.

 

Ventnor is wonderful for a glass or 2 by the sea, or listen to live music or eat out or take out.

Wander into Ventnor for a game of tennis at the club, watch a screening at the Arts Club – all in easy walking distance. There really is something for everyone.

Petit Tor is moments from the coastal walking path, that takes visitors all around the island with otherwise hidden bays and headlands and secluded beaches on the way.
