Haviland Cottage is a beautiful period cottage located on the outskirts of Ventnor, in the historic village of Bonchurch on the South Side of the Isle of Wight. With its own rural and coastal walks with picturesque views it is in a perfect location to explore all the Isle of Wight has to offer.
Built as a Coach House and Stables it has been extended over the years and in 2020 was completely refurbished to offer luxury accommodation, with four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a separate dog snug. As a former coach house, it has high ceilings, spacious and has a light and airy feel throughout the property.
A Sense of History
The cottage has close connections to Charles Dickens when he spent a summer in the village writing “David Copperfield”. To help bring this history to life we have curated a literary walking tour of the surrounding area highlighting key points of interest (along with stunning views).
The extensive ground floor has Italian limestone tiling with underfloor heating. and boasts an extensive kitchen / conservatory for dining. The Ground floor also has a large sitting room, a single bedroom, bathroom, and a dog snug with direct access to the back garden terraces. The upstairs has a further three bedrooms (one En-Suite ) and a family bathroom.
Set within 3/4 acre of beautiful, landscaped gardens and behind high stone walls it offers secluded privacy, as well as direct access to coastal and Downs Walks. Within the grounds there are several terraces for entertaining and alfresco dining. The large front garden has a large grass area, a pond. For children there are ropes and swings hanging from a large hazelnut tree – which is also a favourite of the Red Squirrels – which are still found in certain parts of the Island. There is also an extensive Kids section in the living room with an extensive library containing books, DVD’s, and Board Games.
