Torwood is a beautiful Victorian house that still seems Victorian built in 1860 in Bonchurch.

The space

Torwood is a beautiful Victorian house that still seems Victorian built in 1860 in Bonchurch, a most picturesque village in this most scenic region of the 'ever-so-slow-charge' Isle of Wight.

South from your bedroom window the sea stretches way out towards France. Below, the lawn gives way to two accres of trees intertwined by secret path- a veritable dream come true for kids. From the east you watch as the swimming pool becomes every more inviting. Going downstairs for morning coffee in a kitchen that feels like at home should feel, you take your armchair in the conservatory, the warm water of the pool being just two meters away! After your morning dip, perfect croissants from the trusty old AGA stove prepare you for the day ahead. And what a day it will be. You'll wander down through your private garden to the village pond , where large fish are seen in the shallows,and to the village itself. Continue for 10 minutes and you're on the sea front-a brisk walk along the sea wall and you're soon in the lovely small seaside resort of Ventnor,sandy beach, nice restaurant, great pubs and more fun for the kids.
When people stay at Torwood, they tend to stay time after time, there's simply nowhere else like it. So, sadly it's booked almost solid. But quite often small breaks come up - so you'll say, "are we glad we didn't miss that, let's book for now.

Our outdoor heated swimming pool is available during month of May,June, July, August & September.

Other things to note

-A place called Ventnor is 3 minutes drive from the house.

-Lovely walk from the house down to the promenade of Bonchurch all the way along to Ventnor beach, the Metz in Ventnor & Spy glass Inn is good place to go anytime.

- Bonchurch Inn pub
- The Pond -is just 3 minutes walk from the house.

I'm sure 1 week is plenty enough to discover the goodness of Bonchurch in Isle of Wight

What a stunning house in a great location. Plenty of room for a couple of families. A lovely large aga to cook on and a great heated swimming pool. We will be back!

Torwood is a lovely old romantic house full of interesting nick nacks and entertaining faux antiques. If you don't mind old stained carpets, pealing wall paper and the occasional frog in the kitchen it could be the house for you. To be honest the size of The house, the heated pool, garden and location out weighed the negatives but it's something to be aware of. Shabby chic

As a large family group the house was perfect for us, we all loved the house, gardens and pool (lovely and warm). Just wish we could have stayed longer. Water pressure wasn't great but to be expected in a period property. Great location for exploring. Great host. Would definitely recommend a stay at Torwood. Will be returning for sure.

What a place! The house offers much more than expected... if you like the look and feel of an old country house then this is the place for you! With bags of space and character there is something for everyone... the large kitchen with Aga (plus conventional ovens if you don't want to tackle the Aga) through to snooker / pool table or large outdoor heated (and when I say heated it truly is heated, not just tepid) swimming pool plus the extensive grounds to explore (which are in places overgrown and steps / paths are steep). The house was clean and tidy, and also benefits from sky tv and wifi (a plus as mobile signal was not great). Short walk to the seafront, then along the esplanade to Ventnor. Only downside is low water pressure in the showers, but a price worth paying to stay in this 'lived in' country house! Overall a great place to stay for all in the party... parents, kids and dog! We thoroughly enjoyed it and hope to come back.
