Bonchurch, Isle of Wight, England
Carmel is set down a private lane on the south coast of the Isle of Wight just a stones throw from secluded Monks Bay. The property faces due south with seaviews from the cottage and the surrounding gardens. Carmel has been furnished in a modern style to compliment many of the original features, hand carved fireplaces, Gothic style windows and airy open vaulted ceilings. Cosy in the winter with the woodburner or refreshing in the summer with the garden doors open letting the summer breeze fill the room. <BR><BR>Carmel has three elegantly furnished bedrooms, each with its own unique charm, and easily sleeping eight if required. Upstairs, 2 large bedrooms overlook the surrounding countryside with seaviews to the east and west. Vaulted ceilings and open beams compliment the sunny light mood of the rooms and hallway.<BR><...

We chose the cottage for the location near friends in Ventnor but near a beach with a garden so we felt away from it all. We were lucky with dry bright weather so we were able to walk to the beach and watch the glorious sunsets from the sweet garden during our short stay. Evenings in around the log burner...

Booked for my husband, parents and I to stay here for Christmas. Absolutely loved it! I was raised and spent 18 years on the Isle of Wight and it was a dream to spend Christmas in a hideaway cottage just a stones throw from the beach. The cottage was perfect, had everything we needed, and was in an ideal location....

About the neighborhood
Built on a series of terraces on the lower slopes of St Boniface Down, the timeless village of Bonchurch is recognized as much for its natural beauty as it is for its historical connections.<BR><BR>Beginning at the foreshore the village is fronted by Monks Bay and Horseshoe Bay. The wide beach at Monks Bay provides a safe bathing area for children and exposes an abundance of fabulous rock pools to explore at low tide. <BR><BR>Climbing the footpath towards the village you will pass St Boniface Old Church.
