Isle of Wight tourist attraction to offer holiday apartment

A POPULAR craft attraction on the Isle of Wight is looking to expand its offering by setting up holiday accommodation.

Chessell Pottery, at Shalcombe on Middle Road, is best known for its working pottery with visitors able to paint cups, plates, bowls and other items.

It also has a café and an outdoor area.

Now, in a planning application filed with Isle of Wight Council, the pottery is looking to demolish a side extension to build another, as well as installing a new roof to include a three-bed holiday apartment.

The works will provide new storage facilities, with the new apartment being built over the existing cafe.

Documents submitted to council by Paul Stack Chartered Planner indicate that the current storage building is in poor condition.

Plans show that the replacement roof will have the same peak height and will have a black metal finish with roof lights providing light to the vacation unit.

The documents indicate that the proposed works will continue to ensure the success and appeal of pottery as a destination for visitors.

The vacation unit would add to the economic viability of the business.

You can consult the plans, 22/01503/FUL, on the town planning portal. Comments can be made until October 14.
