Step into vintage heaven at The Mission, surrounded by retro memorabilia and furniture all beautifully placed into this amazing 'tin tabernacle' full of character and history. A truly unique and inspiring place to stay on the Isle of Wight.


This amazing 'tin tabernacle' was built in 1895 and has been converted to a truly unique place to stay. The Mission is situated in an 'area of outstanding natural beauty' just outside the village of Chale on the south coast of the Isle of Wight. Just a few steps away from stunning coastal views and the pub!
Externally the building has been restored and remains the same as it always has, however internally there are two stunning mezzanine bedrooms floating in the roofspace. Below is a large living space with masses of seating and a ginormous wood burning stove. There is a breath-taking bathroom with a sunken bath nestled into what was the baptismal font. At the back of the main hall is the kitchen and dining area that contains a beautiful 'English rose' 1950's kitchen that looks as if it has always lived there. Leading from the kitchen is the 'Sunday school' annexe.

Outside there is a decked courtyard area with outdoor seating, a grassed area to the side and a raised 'wilderness garden' at the rear with a BBQ area, tree seat and indian Summer inspired little sit-outerie.
Homemade cake and fresh flowers will always welcome you.

The Mission can sleep up to 8 people across 4 bedrooms, comprising of 2 doubles on the mezzanine, 1 double/twin and a bunk room. The entire building is central heated and there is also a log burner with 1 basket of logs provided. The kitchen includes modern amenities such as a cooker, dishwasher, fridge-freezer and washing machine. All linen and towels included, TV with Freeview, and a DVD player, WIFI and phone all included. Electric and gas all included. Private off road parking for 2 cars, a decked courtyard to the rear of the building with seating and a BBQ area. Open all year. Children accepted.
