    “Breathtaking.”

    Wow, just returned from a wonderful week staying in the chapel and where to start. On arrival we were met by Sarah, the owner, who was wonderful and explained everything to do with the chapel and advised on nearest shops and restaurants and said to call her if we needed anything else.

    Wow, just returned from a wonderful week staying in the chapel and where to start. On arrival we were met by Sarah, the owner, who was wonderful and explained everything to do with the chapel and advised on nearest shops and restaurants and said to call her if we needed anything else. On entering the chapel we were blown away by the stunning conversion and attention to detail put into everything. Sarah had left lovely goodies around, fresh bread, biscuits, croissants and a lovely home made cake, just to name a few, couldn't have been made to feel anymore welcome. Everything you need for a comfortable stay is supplied as well as very unexpected little extras in that typical kitchen drawer most people have. The chapel is stunning and I felt very emotional on entering, the place has an amazing feeling. The quality of everything is just the best. The beds were lovely and comfy and made you not want to get out but the beauty of the chapel made you not want to lie in, we've never had this feeling anywhere we've ever stayed before. Albeit we've visited the island for over 30 years we've never stayed on this side of the island but it was just perfect as we discovered new places and beautiful walks including steep hill cove which is straight out of a "murder she wrote" episode, it was so quaint and beautiful with a lovely little beach shack to get a cup of tea and bacon sandwich and they also do lunches. Cannot recommend this chapel enough and have gone about it to anyone that will listen, the only downside was having to leave.

About the location

CHALE

Ventnor 6.5 miles; Newport 9.5 miles; Yarmouth 13.5 miles; Fishbourne 14.2 miles; Cowes 14.5 miles.

Ideal for those seeking a mix of coast and country, Chale is a picturesque farming village, nestled at the foot of St Catherine’s Down on the south coast of the Isle of Wight. The village itself offers an award-winning pub/restaurant with an excellent children’s play area, and breathtaking coastal and downland walks, especially to the 35ft-tall octagonal tower ‘St Catherine's Oratory’, locally known as the Pepper Pot. This medieval lighthouse was built in 1312 and is believed to be one of the oldest in Britain. The area of National Trust land around the Pepper Pot is a walker's and birdwatcher’s paradise, as the birds can be observed at eye level. Outstanding sunsets looking towards The Needles are quite a sight. Nearby you'll discover some of the island’s best sandy beaches, perfect for swimming, surfing and of course fossil collecting, where you might even discover the odd dinosaur footprint or two. Close by is Blackgang Chine, the island's premier family attraction and to the north is Osborne House, the former royal residence of Queen Victoria. Experience royal family life as you tour the nursery and private rooms of Victoria and Albert and their children. Wonder at the magnificence of the Royal Apartments including the sumptuous drawing and dining rooms, and the Indian-inspired Dubar Room. Stunning grounds looking out onto The Solent can be explored via a horse-drawn carriage or on foot.
