  • "Super location, Ventnor is beautiful, and all amenities were walkable nearby, shops, supermarkets, restaurants and cafes - perfect!"

    Also lots of things to do both on the IoW and locally, costal walks were breathtaking. Accommodation was luxurious, everything you need, couldn’t have asked for more, thank you.

    Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We are thrilled you had such a wonderful time in Ventnor and enjoyed your time at No5. We very much look forward to welcoming you back sometime. Warmest wishes, No5 Old Church Property Owner

  • "A well thought out conversion with much attention to detail."

    The welcome pack was appreciated. The downside was having to find parking but that was ok if you are prepared to spend time and a bit of a walk. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend The Church.

    Very much appreciate your comments and your recommending No5 The Old Church :) - thank you. We do hope to be welcoming you back at some point in the future. Warmest wishes, No5 Old Church Property Owner

  • "Great stay and a lovely property."

    Great location close to Ventnor beaches and high street. Tesco is just a 5 min walk away to grab essentials. The only challenge is parking but was aware of that before staying. Car park located just 5 mins away which was handy for us. Thank you!

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback - v pleased you enjoyed your stay at No5. We very much hope to welcome you back. Warmest wishes, No5 Old Church Property Owner

  • "Absolutely beautiful apartment."

    ..whoever chose the decor has amazing taste and style. It was everything in the description and more...felt really spacious. I felt like I was in an episode of 'Escape to the Country' where they have the mystery house! We were lucky enough to get a parking space across the road a few times, but if not there is a little car park literally two minutes walk away down the hill. We bought a visitors parking permit for the week, as advised and it worked brilliantly. There is also a little Tesco and Co-op within easy walking distance and it's lovely to be so close to the town centre, but equally in a very quiet area where you don't get disturbed at night. Would highly recommend. All my friends were very impressed with the pics I showed them. Thanks so much for an amazing holiday!

    Ahh - thank you so much for your wonderful feedback - what an absolute delight to read! We are so pleased you enjoyed both your holiday and the apartment as much as we do :) We very much hope to welcome you back again. Warmest wishes, No5 Old Church Property Owner

  • "Tasteful decor and very comfortable, spoilt only by some minor issues ie."

    very small towels, poor qiuality toilet tissue and inadedquate pans. There is not 1 big enough to make pasta for 2 people let alone 4 guests. Disappointinlgy, 3 of the 4 pans had been put away with visible food debris on them.

    An excellent apartment clean and contemporary All mod cons that are needed could of done with a shower unit in 2nd bathroom also the supply of more than one towel would of been a bonus and a shower mat for safety One thing that was lacking was a proper view as windows are high up or overlooking other properties Parking could be an issue albeit free parking opposite you need to have some luck

  • "Nicely converted old church with straightforward access up to the flat."

    Decorated to a high standard, so found the lounge comfortable and kitchen well equipped. We found the beautiful bath impractical and slippy with taps a hazard. Lovely big bathroom so why not install a shower? The shower in the en-suite was bizarrely small in the big space. Nowhere to put shower soap or shampoo. Such a shame because everything else was spot on.

    Many thanks for your feedback...we were very pleased to hear you found most things 'spot on!'. Thank you for your comments on the bath - we have now made sure a rubber bath mat is on hand should future guests need it. We were sorry to hear you found the taps a hazard? In the shower unit there is a wire rack by the taps to pop shampoo & soap in & I found the suckers had come unstuck & the holder was on the floor of the unit after you'd checked out, so apologies there. We very much hope you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back in the future. Warmest wishes, No5 Old Church Property Owner

  • "It was a wonderful place to stay."

    The only tiny quibble is to be a little more honest about parking on the listing, it was hard to park every day and particularly hard to unpack and pack the car on arrival and departure.

    Thank you so much for the wonderful comments you left in my guestbook & your feedback here on the Sykes website. I’m sorry to hear you had trouble with the parking. Unfortunately we do not have private parking…there are free bays directly opposite the church & on the surrounding roads for parking, however it is on a first come first served basis. There is also a car park (opposite Tescos) 0.1miles down from the church. Unfortunately parking on the island can be tricky sometimes, particularly during high season which is why we include the suggestion of a tourist parking permit on the booking form, enabling easier parking all over the island. We do hope this doesn’t deter you from us welcoming you back! Warmest wishes, No5 Old Church. Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at No 5 Old Church."

    It was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. The flat was lovely and beautifully decorated with lots of character. The host was really helpful and easily available to answer any questions we had (even with where to get the best fish and chips in town!) The location was perfect for what we needed - a short walk to the beach which the children enjoyed. Ventnor is lovely with great places to eat, but was also easy to access other parts of the Isle of Wight. Thank you having us - we would love to come back and hopefully will book again year!

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback & the messages in our guestbook - we are thrilled you had such an enjoyable stay and very much hope to see you again next year! Warmest, No5 Old Church Property Owner

The property

No5 Old Church is a magnificent 2 bed apartment set in a church conversion, in the heart of Ventnor, one of Britain’s most famous Victorian health resorts.

Beautiful beaches, water sports, numerous dining options, spectacular walks and much more are just a short stroll from the peaceful tranquillity of No5 Old Church, making it a fantastic place for families or friends to stay.

Upon entering this stylish, yet homely apartment you will be welcomed into a stunning open-plan living space, where it’s hard not to be wowed by the double-heighted, vaulted ceilings.

Space and serenity are abundant as you sink into the velvet sofas or the reading chair and get lost in a book or enjoy some star gazing through the telescope.

The contemporary kitchen is fully equipped, offering integrated appliances which any budding chef will be delighted with.

Once dinner is ready to be served, sit comfortably in the velvet dining chairs at the rustic table and tuck in.

After dinner, enjoy the quiet ambience the double bedrooms boast, both rooms presenting sophisticated designs throughout, orthopaedic mattresses, as well as plenty of handy storage.

A contemporary en-suite shower room is off the master bedroom and the twin (which lends itself to a very comfortable super king) is next to the family bathroom along the corridor.

Relax with some bubbles in the luxurious, freestanding bath before heading out to discover Ventnor’s restaurants, bistros and pubs.

Foodies won’t be disappointed, with the eclectic mix of eateries satisfying every palette.

A walk along the breath-taking coastal paths lead you to Britain’s Hottest Garden, Ventnor’s Botanic Garden, fuelled by the microclimate Ventnor enjoys.

As you pass through Steephill Cove, treat yourself to a coffee or ice cream and enjoy a refreshing dip in the clear waters.

Entry is by foot only to this little slice of paradise.

If you’d prefer a scenic drive, head to Military Road and take in the stunning coastal route to the Needles.

Pop into Blackgang Chine Theme Park along the way for some nostalgic moments or introduce the next generation to the land of imagination.

A little further afield lies Cowes, a seaport town with plenty to see and do, including the delights of Northwood House Park, the town’s picturesque harbour and nearby Maritime Museum.

The charm of Shanklin Old Village and Sandown Bay which won Best Beach Award, are just moments away.

Ideally located for you to enjoy coastal walks.

Nestle down in the stylish, yet homely No5 Old Church at any time of the year and enjoy the delights of the Jewel of the South.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £500.

About the location


Newport 10 miles; Cowes 15 miles.

The quaint Victorian seaside resort of Ventnor is located at the southern end of the island and accessed via an array of steep winding roads set amidst beautiful scenery. Sheltered by St. Boniface Down, one of the island's highest points and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this charming town has a uniquely mild micro climate enabling tropical and exotic plants to grow throughout the area. The gently sloping sandy and fine shingle beaches and coves provide excellent facilities for watersports and offer a range of stunning coastal paths to explore, while the harbour sells a broad range of fresh fish and locally-caught seafood. Ventnor is one of the Isle of Wight’s most prestigious food destinations with a good variety of high-quality restaurants,
Bistros, pubs and shops along the esplanade and close to the town centre. The Botanical Gardens are within easy reach and well worth a visit, whilst around the island there are great walking and cycling opportunities, medieval castles, historic houses and a variety of gardens and waterfalls, as well as the unspoilt fishing bay. This great holiday destination has plenty to offer all year-round, and it's easy to see why it's known as the prettiest place on the Isle of Wight!
