This stylish seaside cottage is wonderfully located a few steps from Bonchurch beach. With a short walk to the coastal path or into the village centre, it’s the perfect retreat.

This delightful property is superbly situated beside the sea at Bonchurch, a small seaside hamlet with a sandy beach at low tide. There are open sea views from the property which stands adjacent to the promenade. The centre of the village of Bonchurch is within a five-minute walk and here, there is a large pond, an 11th century church and excellent restaurant. A Gastro Pub in upper Bonchurch is within a 15-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.
