Description from owner


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.

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.

The lower gardens surrounding the property are a great place for children to explore and play in the wendy house. Numerous eating areas and terraces enable you to enjoy a spectacular seaview and absorb the sun from early in the morning well into the evening. Climb the paths behind the house to reveal further secluded terraces with panoramic sea views.

Follow the short path down the cliff to Monks Bay, a beautiful sheltered sandy beach, safe for bathing. The offshore breakwater to the west is the perfect place to cast a fishing line out to sea. At low tide hundreds of rock-pools are exposed, home to many small fish, prawns and crabs. When the tide comes in float over the rocks with a mask and snorkel – you will be amazed at what you see.

Explore the wooded area to the east of Carmel known as The Landslip. For full property details visit

Very Good

“Beautiful little cottage”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2017

Fantastic little cottage and very well equipped with fantastic views. Brilliant for big family like us with six kids ranging from 1yr -16yr and only a stones throw from the beach. The garden was a real plus and toddler safe would highly recommend.

“Idyllic cottage with a wonderful view”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2017

Perfectly located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, this is really the place if you like it peaceful and quiet. The cottage is beautifully decorated, with modern comfort, although historical ambience. Just on the costal path, with wonder woods to the left and beach to the right. We enjoyed our stay immensely and only wished to stay longer and come back soon. Highly recommended!

“So good , just keeps drawing us back again and again”

Reviewed 1 Jul 2017

Idyllic away from it all accommodation in an extremely well kitted out old style property that feels homely and benefits from a breathtaking location.


Reviewed 12 Nov 2016

Well equipped. Hidden away. Lawn shaded from weather from all directions except south. Cosy. Beautiful place in a beautiful place.

“A perfect choice”

Reviewed 14 Sep 2013

A delightful cottage, from which we hosted our daughter's wedding at East Dene. We couldn't have picked a better location, helped by superb weather, which enhanced this gem of a property even more.

“Beauty on the beach”

Reviewed 2 Mar 2013

What a great property and location. 30 seconds from a lovely quiet beach, this charming cottage housed 2 families of 4 very comfortably and happily. It is a mile's walk along the coastal wall from Ventnor ,a fantastic town with several great cafe's, and in the other direction is hills and woodland. The garden has a sun deck with beautiful views over the sea. Lucy (the owner) is charming, friendly, informative, and on hand should you need anything. Visiting in the winter? No worries - the wood burner in the lounge (wood provided) will keep you warm, snug and toasty. The kitchen is fully equipped, there is wi-fi, washing machine, dish washer...what more do you need? This place is highly recommended, and we will certainly be visiting again.

“Fantastic stay”

Reviewed 24 Jan 2013

We loved the beautiful vieuws and quiet location. Very different from the busy and boring coast with us in Belgium. We felt right home. The authenticity of the property in combination with the modern and comfortable furnishings are perfect. The area radiated from something mystical, especially in the dark. We will defenitely return here.
