Little Pax

The house was erected by The Hon Hans Stanley when he was Governor of the Isle of Wight in the 1700’s as his “summer house”. The cottage was designed to make the most of the southerly sea views and retains a wide range of period features and has been well maintained and modernised in recent years. Within the woodland are a range of useful outbuildings and stores whilst the woodland provides a wonderful secluded setting.
Situated within the western fringe of the coastal town of Ventnor, Steephill Cove is nearby as are the Ventnor Botanical Gardens whilst the town itself has beachside eateries, a good range of shops and restaurants.
