1 Church House - relax and inspire your imagination in a church conversion full of celestial charm, beautifully situated on the Isle of Wight.

1 Church House is, as its name suggests, is an exquisite church conversion full of charm and creativity.  This stunning building is perfectly situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the village of Totland, found on the west side of the windswept Isle of Wight coast.  So divine is 1 Church House, in fact, that it has recently featured in The Times' celebration of the ‘Best Cottages in Britain'.

You'll discover a wealth of unspoilt coastal views even as you arrive at your heavenly haven, which accommodates up to 7 people in four bedrooms.  Listen to the cawing of seagulls overhead as you drive through the double gates, and get yourselves ready to relax!

Inside, 1 Church House is light, bright, spacious, and full of imagination.  Through the main archway you'll discover a large ground floor area, housing three large, friendly zip/link bedrooms with Smart TVs and windows you'll want to gaze dreamily out of for all eternity!  You'll also find handy wet rooms complete with underfloor heating, while a utility room handily provides space for drying wet swimming costumes after a hectic day at the beach.

The welcoming living and dining area is perfect for socialising, with a magnificent window that allows light to come flooding inside, and original timber high ceilings that make for a truly elegant living experience.  Culinary enthusiasts will love whipping up endless feasts in the luxurious kitchen, featuring everything you'll need to while away some indulgent time engrossed in your latest ‘must-try' recipe!

Head for the second floor, and to the master bedroom with its galleried balcony overlooking the living area, and wondrous views from its spectacular stained-glass window...a wonderful way to wake up!  An ensuite shower room is a convenient way to freshen up first thing, in readiness for another day of energetic holiday adventure.

A lawned area to the front of the building, complete with garden furniture and barbecue, is the perfect place to relax with a sizzling al-fresco feast, glass of communion wine in hand perhaps, as you swap holiday stories and plan for the day ahead!

Beach lovers will be in absolute heaven at 1 Church House, as just half a mile away on foot you can discover the award-winning Totland Beach in all its sandy glory.  Slightly further on is Colwell Bay, another award-winning beach, featuring renowned café restaurant The Hut - perfect for a longer day out.

In the other direction, you'll find the charming village of Freshwater along a picturesque path, boasting a quirky array of independent shops, a golf course and a public swimming pool...or for those who feel like a more energetic walk with added historical interest, how about a walk along the famous Tennyson Trail, or packing up a picnic and heading on down to Headon Down, where you can explore the Bronze Age burial mound and indulge in a spot of bird watching along your way?  Yarmouth is also found slightly further afield, offering an ancient castle to explore along with its bustling harbour.

On rainier days you can luxuriate inside your saintly space, as you enjoy catching up on your favourite TV shows or indulging in the books and games that have been thoughtfully provided.

So congregate with your favourite people to experience all the exquisite charm and grandeur of church-cottage living...and you'll soon discover that with 1 Church House, heaven really is a place on Earth!
