This unique place to stay was created in the 2012 conversion of the old Chale Scout Hall. Situated in an enviable location on the south coast of the Isle of Wight, Church Place, on the outskirts of the village of Chale is nestled in an area of outstanding natural beauty. From the deck there are far reaching spectacular coastal views over towards The Needles and the area is marvelous for walking, even if it's just to the nearby pub!

The Scout Hall stands in it’s own private grounds with a lawned area, outside seating and a BBQ. Externally the building has been restored using traditional materials and colours. Internally they have created an 'upside-down' living space to make the most of the spectacular views.  Downstairs are four generous bedrooms,  2 x king bedrooms, 1 king or twin and 1 bunk room and all uniquely decorated using many vintage artefacts with the 'Elvis' bedroom having a small outside terrace. There are two bathrooms available. Upstairs is the open plan living space with doors opening onto the deck (watch out for those views!). A quirky ships-galley style kitchen and all usual facilities. Comfortable lounge area and dining space. Homemade cake and fresh flowers will always welcome you. Electric and gas are included.  Bed linen and towels are included. Children of all ages are welcome. One dog accepted with prior notice - small charge applies and subject to T&C's. Private off-road parking.

Open: 1 January - 1 September |  Minimum number of nights: 2 nights, except between 15 July and 1 September when it's 7 nights only starting on a Friday.
