House in Bembridge, Isle of Wight - Quiet Location Close To The Beach And Shops
Frances Warner Lacey
About Frances Warner Lacey
We are a family with two young Children and over the past 5 years we have enjoyed fantastic holidays on the Island. Chantries is now our holiday home and we want to extend a genuine "home from home" feeling to our guests. The house has all the modern conveniences you would expect, including free WIFI, but it is also equipped with the basics such as teabags, coffee, washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets. There are toys, games, books and DVDs which are freely available for you to use too.
Frances Warner Lacey purchased this House in 2015
Why Frances Warner Lacey chose Bembridge
We love all that the Island has to offer. It is like a collection of all the best bits of the UK ranging from the diverse coastline of cliffs, rock pools and surf beaches to vantage points high up in the Downs overlooking Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With the highest sunshine figures in the UK, the experience of spending time on the Island is memorable borne out by Lonely Planet declaring that the Isle of Wight is the best place to cycle in the world!! We viewed Chantries on a January afternoon and were struck with how light and bright all the rooms felt. The previous owner renovated the property retaining the property's original character and charm and we fell in love with it instantly. The house accommodates 6 people easily with a large generous open plan kitchen / dining room, sitting room with views to the garden and all the 3 bedrooms are of a good size. The property sits on a corner plot and the garden feels private and secure - the perfect antidote to busy urban life!
What makes this House unique
Chantries is ideally located. At the end of the Lane is a parade of shops were you can get a fresh loaf of bread and a pink of milk and a stone throw from the newly opened Spinnaker Pub. It is close to the beach (7 min walk), the village (15 min walk) and well positioned to explore all the rest the Island has to offer. The property is located off a quiet unmade road which immediately gives you sense of peace and quiet yet within close to all the amenities that Bembridge has to offer. Bembridge is a village with a real heart that beats all year round with a varied range of shops and restaurants. This makes it an ideal place to visit both in and out of the holiday season.

Amazing, relaxing second stay
This light filled house is beautifully decorated and comfortable. The perfect holiday house that allowed us to really relax.
The house is well located just a few minutes walk from the beach and about 15mins walk from Bembridge. It is down a little lane, so it is very quiet.
The house is well equipped with comfortable beds, a dishwasher and washing machine. The two bathrooms are both large and there’s both a shower and a bath.
The lovely large garden is good for running around in, sitting on the deck to read and for hanging out the washing.
Our second stay will not be our last - we are already plotting our next visit...
A wonderfully comfortable & well equipped house in a quiet peaceful location
Our 4th stay & are looking forward to the next visit, one can always get a good night's sleep as it is very quiet at night & if you don't want to go out there are shops round the corner ( 2 mins walk ) & a garden to sit out in.

Lovely property in a great location
Very comfortable, ideally placed. Everything you need for a great holiday.
We have stayed at Chantries many times. We keep going back because it has everything we want and need. A beautiful house, clean, modern in a wonderful location. Recent installation of the bifold doors in the sitting room make the house cool in the summer, we were cool and comfortable, even at night, during this yeara heatwave. It is close to the beach at The Duver (St Helens) and walking distance to the beach and shops at Bembridge. We will definitly be returning to Chantries.
