A luxurious apartment with an open-plan living space that is simply perfect for small families and groups of friends wanting to get away and enjoy the many treasures the Isle of Wight has to offer.

A beloved resort on the south of the island, Ventnor proves to be a true island hotspot with its wide range of shops, cafes and restaurants. The mild microclimate of this beautiful town makes it a fabulous choice for your retreat. Several other tourist destinations are easily accessible, from Shanklin (4 miles) to Freshwater Bay (17.5 miles), or you could even take a day trip to the Ventnor Botanic Gardens (1.5 miles). If it’s more the history on the island that interests you, then you are again spoilt for choice with so much to explore from the castles at Carisbrooke (11.4 miles) and Yarmouth (20.7 miles) to Osborne House, the holiday residence of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert (14 miles).

Head to the beautiful front door of the former 1860s Methodist church either via a ramp or the church steps and kick off your shoes in your own private lobby area after a day of exploring the island’s best trails and attractions. The lobby doubles up as the perfect spot to relax and read a book on the lobby seating, or even accept a chess challenge on the glass set provided. From the lobby, you can make your way up through the long striking hallway heading through the heart of the apartment. You will firstly come to the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner on your left-hand side. This luxurious space has been well designed to provide a light and elegant interior for guests to enjoy together comfortably. Here sits a phenomenal blue velvet corner sofa bed for one additional guest where you can enjoy your favourite films on the Smart TV, or even prepare a meal in the kitchen which is well equipped including features such as an electric oven, induction hob, fridge/freezer, built-in microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. Meals will be easy to enjoy together with ample seating for all guests on the chic dining table. Heading up the hallway will bring you to the first of the two cosy bedrooms; this bedroom contains a double bed with an additional single bed. The master bedroom at the end of the hallway has a clear focus on romance, have a lie down on the king-size four-poster bed draped in white muslin, and enjoy your own private en-suite shower room with a walk-in shower and WC. Completing this wonderful apartment is the family bathroom which contains a glamorous nickel bath and WC. With the bathroom’s black and white Italian floor tiles it really is perfect for those amazing Instagram shots.

There is a pay and display car park close to the apartment where tourist permits can be purchased and used at all participating council car parks around the island.
