This stylish, seaside cottage boasts an enviable location, directly overlooking the ocean and Bonchurch beach. Cool, coastal interiors with a charming outdoor area make this property a real winner.
This delightful property is superbly situated beside the sea at Bonchurch, a small seaside hamlet with a pebble beach which is sometimes sandy at low tide. There are open sea views from the property which stands adjacent to the pedestrian only promenade. The centre of the village of Bonchurch is within a five-minute walk and here, there is a large pond which is full of wildlife, an 11th century church, beautiful stone houses and sub tropical plants. A Gastro Pub serving Italian cuisine in upper Bonchurch is within a 20-minute walk. Bonchurch has a peaceful air and perhaps for this reason was popular with writers and poets in Victorian times. A pleasant 20-minute walk along the level ground of the promenade leads you through Wheelers Bay to the small seaside of resort of Ventnor, with its larger beach cafes, restaurants and shops. The coastal path eastwards from Bonchurch provides a scenic walk through the rural hamlet of Luccombe to the larger seaside resort of Shanklin, an hour's walk.
