Hotels, Bed and Breakfasts (B&Bs), Guest Houses, Inns and Pubs in  ISLE OF WIGHT

If you travel solo, you know how difficult and annoying it can be. Single supplements, being given the worst table in the restaurant, being made to feel like an outcast just because you're travelling alone - these things can ruin your trip. Fortunately, hospitality providers are wising up and more and more are making efforts to cater for the independent traveller, whether travelling for leisure or business. In this section we list establishments where single travellers are made welcome.

Access Statement for Little Rannoch

Introduction

Little Rannoch is located on the border of Ventnor and St Lawrence and offers one private guest suite comprising a double bedroom, shower room and kitchenette/dining room.

The single-storey bungalow was built in 1937 and has been well maintained with recent refurbishment to form the guest suite. Whilst we aim to meet the needs of all of our guests there are some period features of the house and garden which might make access difficult for people with limited mobility.

The surrounding Undercliff is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Access to Ventnor’s famous Botanic Gardens is across the road from Little Rannoch with Ventnor Cricket Club and the picturesque beaches of Steephill Cove and Orchard Bay only a short walk away. The town of Ventnor is 1.75 miles which can be walked in around 30 minutes.
