This 19th-century chapel cleverly blends original features with contemporary comforts to create a quirky base for a relaxing holiday. Ideally positioned for exploring both the coast and countryside.

Located in the heart of Whitwell, this stunning 19th-century chapel offers a truly unique stay on the Isle of Wight. Exquisitely renovated to preserve the chapel’s original features and character, this four-bedroom holiday home is quirky, comfortable and luxurious. There’s plenty of space for relaxing and entertaining, including an indoor games room and outdoor decking with a BBQ and dining area.

Spread over two floors, this semi-detached property has striking stained glass windows, a beamed and vaulted ceiling, and some impressive arched doorways. The hub of the property is the magnificent lounge, which runs the full height of the building. There’s an assortment of comfortable seating, a beautiful tiled fireplace with a wall-mounted television above, large stained glass windows that flood the room with natural light, and a mezzanine level along two sides of the room. The stylish kitchen features a range-style cooker, and there’s a choice of dining areas, including a breakfast table in the kitchen, a formal dining room, and an outdoor table. Play table tennis, pool or darts in the game rooms located in the entranceway, and enjoy a restful night’s sleep in the four comfortable bedrooms, which have some areas with restricted head height owing to the unique shape of the building. The entire property is beautifully furnished and decorated with some antique furniture that matches the style of the chapel, along with contemporary comforts including lovely freestanding bathtubs and large modern sofas.

Although a small village, Whitwell is home to a 700-year-old church, the oldest pub on the Isle of Wight dating back to the 15th century, and an ancient ‘whit well’ popular with medieval pilgrims to the island. The seaside town of Ventnor is 3 miles south, with its lovely sand and shingle beach backed by beach huts converted from Victorian bathing machines. Gardeners will love Ventnor Botanic Gardens (2.5 miles), while Blackgang Chine (3 miles) offers fun for all the family.

An elegantly converted chapel which still retains its character. The attention to detail was notable throughout, including festive decor in the lounge, lights glowing, which was a lovely touch at this time of year. We found the beds very comfortable, loved the deep bathtubs and large showers with lots of space to relax in. A couple of hiccups alongRead more the way were dealt with speedily by the owner and we very much appreciated her concern. We had a lovely stay, thank you, Natalie. Hide

A beautiful property with lots of character. It suited our family (4 adults and 2 children) well. The big lounge is a highlight, the kitchen is well equipped and the children loved the pool table. Communication with the owner was excellent - friendly and helpful.
