5 of 5 stars Reviewed 15 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We stayed here for a long weekend. It's a lovely cottage in a fabulous location overlooking the sea. The cottage is comfortable and well equipped. Lovely walking and local eateries in Ventnor and Bonchurch. more

4 of 5 stars Reviewed 20 March 2013 for a stay in January 2013

I visited the IOW in January and stayed at Monks Bay Cottage. The track from the main road is a little tortuous, but once at the cottage you can appreciate the isolated location and spectacular sea views.
The cottage itself is very pretty and well equipped for a perfect family holiday. The path down to the beach is steep and not suitable for everyone, but from the beach a lovely walk along the wide flat promenade takes you into Ventnor with its bars, shops and restaurants.
I had a truly lovely stay and would recommend this cosy cottage to anyone who wanted a peaceful location for exploring the island.
