  • "Really nice apartment, spacey, close to shops, very modern and comfy."

  • "A gorgeously furnished cosy property, oozing decadence, with everything you need."

    Really wonderful welcome basket, much better than most! High quality equipment provided, including a big smart TV, it was a really lovely stay. House Managers were amazing. Parking was only tricky on one evening but we still managed to park nearby. It was the perfect place to shelter from Storm Ciaran! Would go back in a flash.

  • "Very lovely property, with luxury features."

    Parking can be difficult. Easy to get around the island from here

  • "Generally we really enjoyed the apartment."

    We did feel that the apartment lacked some practicality; there could have been more wardrobe hanging space and also drawers. Also, there were a lot of ornaments in places where they could have been damaged and where maybe more useful pieces of furniture could have been placed. Also, the water pressure was really low. However, we had a good time and the apartment was a lovely size for 2 adults, 2 teenage boys and a little girl. We really appreciated the welcome hamper, especially the Marmite, and prosecco!

  • "We loved Pilgrim's Loft - definitely the nicest IoW property we've stayed at so far, and one of the nicest Sykes ones."

    Nicely decorated, very clean, bright, airy, generous hamper of goodies, plenty of seating, comfortable beds - we very much enjoyed it here. Very quick and easy walk to the nearest car park (parking permit highly recommended for their car parks all over the island). One of the neighbours even dropped off some lovely cupcakes for us. Wish I'd booked it for a longer stay!

  • "Very pleased with the accommodation."

    Parking was potentially an issue and there could have been more guidance in the welcome pack, e.g. pull up outside for loading/unloading and the cost and facilities of using the nearby carpark, i.e. purchase of the season ticket covered you for parking in many car parks on the island as well. The welcome basket of food and wine was impressive and unexpected. There are other flats in the same building and I'd expect them to be just as impressive. Very happy with the Sykes Cottages experience. If I was coming back to Ventnor, I'd explore the Sykes offerings first.

    Thank you so much for your kind comments - we are delighted that you enjoyed your time at Pilgrim's Loft and look forward to welcoming you back! Property Owner

  • "Pilgrim's Loft is a beautifully furnished property but to our mind was designed to appear perfect in photographic shots but not with an eye for practicality, there were vases/ornaments on nearly every available surface, little working surface for preparation of food in the kitchen, a rather crowded dining/living room which was combined with the kitchen."

    The latter was OK for just the two of us but I would not have been comfortable if there had been six of us. I would also say that the twenty outside steps to the front door could be quite daunting for some people and no mention was made of this in the details. I am sorry to be so honest and would conclude that we had a pleasent stay without wishing to return. and the bed we slept in was very comfortable.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are very glad that you had a pleasant stay at Pilgrim's Loft and that you found the bed very comfortable. We were a little surprised to read that you didn't think that you would have been comfortable if there were 6 of you. I would like to reassure you that as a family of 6 ourselves, we have absolutely no issues and we frequently have friends over whilst we are staying there and there is always more than enough room. We do hope to welcome you back to Pilgrim's Loft! Property Owner

  • "Pilgrim's Loft was the most luxurious self catering apartment we have ever stayed."

    In fact it was so full of creature comforts that it was a struggle to leave the apartment every day, despite the Isle of Wight being the most amazing place for a holiday with so much to see and do. The apartment is so well located in the lovely seaside town of Ventnor where it was easy to walk into town for breakfast or stroll along the esplanade to the Spyglass Inn for freshly caught crab. For those looking for a longer walk, Steephill Cove was just 1.5 miles along the Ventnor coastline, a beautiful unspoilt fishing cove with a safe, sandy beach, nestled between rocky cliffs and smugglers' coves. East of Ventnor, we enjoyed trips to Shanklin, Sandown, Bembridge, Ryde, and Bonchurch, just a short walk from Ventnor, has some of the prettiest streets around and a lovely village lake. Godshill in the north is a must, especially for a cream tea at The Old World Tearooms which also caters for vegans and those seeking a gluten free option. Going West, we enjoyed Blackgang Chine, Freshwater Bay and Alun Bay where the cable car and boat trip are certainly worth doing. The speedboat takes you around the needles, the leisure boat takes you to them and then makes the return journey. We had so much fun, it's a must to return. We highly recommend Pilgrim's loft in its superb location for exploring the south coast of the island.

    Thank you so much for the wonderful feedback and travel tips! We are delighted that you enjoyed your time at Pilgrim’s Loft and look forward to welcoming you back. Best wishes from all at Pilgrim’s Loft Property Owner

The property

Tucked away in the Victorian seaside resort of Ventnor, Isle of Wight, is this stunning, first-floor apartment, set in a converted church, Pilgrim’s Loft.

Enjoying a superb location within the Isle of Wight AONB and a stylish interior boasting luxury furnishings, Pilgrim’s Loft is the perfect base for a group or family of six looking to escape to the Isle of Wight in style.

Via external rustic stone steps and then to the first floor, be welcomed into the contemporary, open-plan living space, featuring original church windows and high beamed ceilings.

Here you can look forward to cooking up a storm in the well-equipped kitchen, with a handy washing machine and dishwasher, ready to enjoy at the dining table for six.

After dinner, why not snuggle up with a good book in the reading nook, or relax in front of the Smart TV with your favourite tipple?

Pour in the bubbles and indulge in a soothing soak in the freestanding bath, before wrapping yourself in a toasty towel, courtesy of the heated towel rail.

As your eyes grow heavy, retire to one of three well-appointed bedrooms, two king-sizes, one with gleaming en-suite shower room, and a twin, all of which feature original church windows, exposed beams, memory foam mattresses and luxury, hotel-style bedding.

Explore your local surroundings, where foodies will have found their haven, with a fantastic selection of pubs, bistros, restaurants and cafes, ideal for when you don’t feel like cooking, along with well-stocked convenience stores.

Pack-up your bathing suits, swimming trunks and towels and spend the day on the glorious sands of Ventnor Beach, where you can bathe, paddle the shores or take to the waters on your kayak or canoe.

Keen walkers will delight at the close proximity of a range of scenic coastal paths, where you can soak up the best views and scenery in the area.

If that isn’t your thing, why not sample the harbour’s freshly caught seafood at the Smoking Lobster.

Other attractions in the town include Longshoreman’s Museum, Ventnor Golf Club, The Botanical Gardens and the picturesque National Trust Ventnor Downs.

Be sure to check out the nearby Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary, where you can visit the sweet, rescued donkeys and ponies.

The budding historians in your party can enjoy the Museum of Island History and the Newport Roman Villa in Newport, or the impressive medieval Carisbrooke Castle.

Further afield, you will find Cowes, where you can explore the delights of the Sir Max Aitken Museum, the Cowes Maritime Museum or hop aboard a ferry to Southampton for a memorable day trip.

All this awaits with a stay at Pilgrim’s Loft.

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

VENTNOR

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!
