This stylish seaside cottage is wonderfully located directly overlooking the ocean and Bonchurch beach. With a short walk to the coastal path or into the village centre, it’s the perfect peaceful retreat.
This bright and airy cottage is situated in Bonchurch, a small seaside hamlet with a pebble beach which is sometimes sandy at low tide. It boasts wonderful sea views and stands adjacent to the pedestrian only promenade. The village centre is a short walk away where you’ll find a large pond with plenty of wildlife, an 11th century church, beautiful stone buildings and sub tropical plants. Bonchurch has a peaceful air which is perhaps why it was popular with writers and poets in Victorian times. Explore along the promenade, which leads you through Wheelers Bay to the small seaside of resort of Ventnor with miles of beach, cafés, restaurants and various small shops. The coastal path eastwards from Bonchurch provides a delightful walk through the rural hamlet of Luccombe to the larger seaside resort of Shanklin – a great route for a walking day trip.
Entering the cottage, you’ll find an open-plan living area with superb sea views through its floor to ceiling windows, and patio doors that open out onto the garden. This room has comfortable seating and a TV/DVD. The dining area with circular table provides a relaxing place to enjoy meals, whilst continuing to marvel at the magnificent sea just beyond. Further in, the kitchen has a cooker with gas hob and double electric oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and a central island with breakfast bar. The fully tiled bathroom has a shower over the bath and a WC. There is also a separate shower room with WC. The first charming bedroom is a superb double with a super-king-size bed and lovely sea views with French doors opening on to the terrace featuring table and chairs. The second, a lovely double bedroom also with a super-king-size bed and a French door offers glimpses of the sea – this door gives direct access to the terrace and garden. The third is a lovely twin bedroom. There is a plentiful wardrobe space and a French-style single daybed in the living area which can be used to accommodate an extra guest for an additional cost.
Outside, the cottage has a private walled and fenced garden with stunning sea views. Garden furniture is provided so that meals can be enjoyed al fresco. Steps lead down from the garden, allowing access to the promenade. Off-road parking is provided for two cars on the shared driveway. Guests can access the beach by walking down the lane from the drive.
