About the property

Boasting an elevated position, located on a hill overlooking Monks Bay in the delightful village of Bonchurch, is Trevessa.

Ideal for a couple, family of four or a group of friends, this charming property offers an interesting history and original feel inside.

Dating back to 1852, it was once a fishing cottage and now retains it character combined with modern furnishings and bright décor.

The cottage is accessed via the front garden, with steps up from the street.

It offers flagstone floors and a lovely sitting room to the right with a TV and a traditional, character feature open fire place.

The dining room is a wonderful space for gathering with your loved ones, enjoying views of the sea as you tuck into a delicious meal.

This leads into the kitchen, where you have fitted units and all the appliances you would expect.

Upstairs you have two well-presented bedrooms, the twin room offering a pair of binoculars for tracking ships passing through from Portsmouth.

Lastly, the stylish bathroom boasts antique furnishings, marble top and spotlights in the ceiling, highlighting a sleek finish.

Outside you have an enclosed garden to the front with patio furniture, so you can sit and admire the glistening views of the sea and watch the world pleasantly go by.

Bonchurch boasts an Italian run pub, the 'Bonchurch Inn', serving the most delicious lasagne on the island.

Monks Bay is just east of the village, home to Bonchurch Pottery and there is a lovely walk from here that leads to the larger coastal town of Ventnor.

You have some wonderful amenities close by; a variety of shops, pubs, restaurants, as well as watersports and fabulous walking and cycling opportunities.

About the location


Newport 10 miles; Cowes 15 miles.

The quaint Victorian seaside resort of Ventnor is located at the southern end of the island and accessed via an array of steep winding roads set amidst beautiful scenery. Sheltered by St. Boniface Down, one of the island's highest points and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this charming town has a uniquely mild micro climate enabling tropical and exotic plants to grow throughout the area. The gently sloping sandy and fine shingle beaches and coves provide excellent facilities for watersports and offer a range of stunning coastal paths to explore, while the harbour sells a broad range of fresh fish and locally-caught seafood. A good variety of shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants line the esplanade, whilst the Botanical Gardens are within easy reach and well worth a visit. With plenty to see and do around the island for all the family, including great walking and cycling opportunities, medieval castles, historic houses and a variety of gardens and waterfalls, as well as the unspoilt fishing bay, this great holiday destination has plenty to offer all year round, and it's easy to see why it's known as the prettiest place on the Isle of Wight.
