Great location and a clean, well appointed bungalow. Lovely views from the patio and an easy walk down to the bay. Shops are nearby and there of lots of attractions for the kids a short drive away. Definitely recommend the area and the bungalow.

An wonderful experience, a relaxing stay

5 of 5
The house has been so well thought through, It's very well suited to family life and the living spaces connect in an open way but still feel separate, it's the details of the design make this house a real pleasure to be in. We would not hesitate to recommend this house, it's the most relaxing UK holiday we've had and this is mainly due to the design of the property. Ideal for 3 generations of family. Although it's secluded the house is well located and local shops and sights are easily accessible. There's always lot's to do on the Isle of Wight but 3 things stand out locally: 1. The Sun Inn (Hulverstone) 2. Running/walking along the River Yar to Yarmouth 3. The walk up to Tennyson monument then down to Totland Bay. Thanks Sarah for the useful info beforehand.
