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 Isle of Wight

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.

Great location and lovely family home

  • 5 of 5

I asked the family what they liked or didn't like about Chantries and here is the feedback: Dad likes the open plan kitchen and walking distance to shops, beaches and restaurants is a big plus. But didn't like the electric stove top because it stays hot after use (not the same as what we have at home so it is a personal preference). Son age 13 likes the excellent WiFi throughout the house, the garden big enough to kick a ball about. But didn't like that the rope swing was not quite big enough for him to enjoy! Daughter age 9 liked having the rope swing to herself, the games in the cupboard and her lovely twin bed room. I loved the bifold doors and seats by the doors creating an openness from the house to garden. The kitchen is brilliantly equipped and we baked on many days because the equipment was there to do that. My negative is that I would like the squeaky floor in the main bedroom repaired. All in all, we loved our stay and had a wonderful time. Your house is lovely and in a fab location - I would definitely recommend to stay at Chantries.

Great house for a holiday in a very convenient location near the shops and beach

  • 5 of 5

The property is perfect for a holiday. We love the open plan kitchen/dining room and the bifold doors in the lounge. Walking to the beach or the shops is a matter of a few minutes. The road is quiet.

A real home from home

  • 5 of 5

We found Chantries both well maintained and comfortable. Frances was very helpful when communicating with us via email and Nikki provided a warm welcome to the house. We really liked the garden and as the weather was pleasant we spent time outside enjoying the peaceful setting. The property's close proximity to the beach was a major plus but equally it was quite straightforward to visit other locations using Bembridge as a base. We would certainly recommend Chantries and if visiting the IOW in the future would want to return there.

Third time back at Chantries and we love it!

  • 5 of 5

Chantries is the most homely holiday rental that we have ever stayed in. The house has plenty of space, even for the six we had with us this time. Recent updates to the house have even improved it. Perfect location as well with a short walk to the beach, local shop and Bembridge high street. And highlight is always the weekly launching of the RNLI lifeboats from the station at the end of the road, usually on a Wednesday.

A lovely holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful 4 nights at Chantries. The house is lovely - very comfortable beds, well-equipped kitchen, good shower! - and is perfectly well equipped for families (we have two children aged 7 and 3). It's an easy stroll to the local shops of Bembridge and the beach. Lunch at The Beach Hut on Forelands Beach was a particular highlight - delicious sandwiches and seafood! Also The Best Dressed Crab on the waterfront. St Helens Duver is worth a visit where you can hire dinghys & kayaks from the very friendly people at Tacktisle Adventures. We would definitely recommend this property for either a family holiday or a quiet getaway. Thank you Frances and Andy!
