Stable CottageBook gallery
A cliff top cottage with charming features and a modern open plan interior.
Stable Cottage is located at the end of a quiet private lane to the east of the timeless village of Bonchurch. The cottage is a perfect retreat for a family holiday with Monks Bay a two minutes wander down the coastal path.
The cottage was renovated in 2013. Through careful consideration, the outside retains it's charm whilst the interior has been reconfigured to suit a modern lifestyle. Emphasis is placed on the living space. Large bifold doors open onto the Stable Yard where children can play happily and safely on bikes and scooters. The open plan living and dining room features many original features including high vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and a fireplace with wood burning stove. A wide brick arch leads through to the kitchen, again open plan with a breakfast bar and cosy corner seating with coffee table.
