A LUXURY Isle of Wight hideaway has been named the UK's most romantic beachfront getaway.

The accommodation accolade was awarded to The Cabin, in Ventnor, at LUX Life Magazine's national Hotel and Spa Awards.

Voted for by the public, the awards celebrate the country's best luxury hospitality services.

The Cabin offers marine spa treatments and three luxury coastal cabins with stunning seafront views.

They have proved popular for romantic occasions including honeymoons, wedding anniversaries and marriage proposals. There have been ten proposals this year alone — happily, they all said yes.

Owner Rowena Amos said: “We are really proud to have won this award, it's been a fantastic team effort. We are always striving to give our guests the ultimate five-star experience.

“To be part of a guest’s special occasion is a real privilege, we always add personal touches on arrival to help add to the magic of the location.”

Designed, built and run by Rowena, and her partner Oliver Morris, the spa was runner-up in the 2016 UK Professional Beauty Awards.

Will Myles, managing director at Visit Isle of Wight, said: “We are pleased to hear The Cabin at Ventnor has been recognised for its high-quality offering — just one more reason for visitors to discover the Isle of Wight.

“Entering into awards is a great way to gain national recognition for what your business has to offer, and we always encourage Island tourism businesses not to hide their light under a bushel, rather to be prepared to shout about the great work that they do."
