                                                              Perfect place to explore the island

                                                              We enjoyed a one week stay on the isle of wight in April. We stayed with our two small children (3 and 5) and found this bungalow to be the perfect place to explore the island. The bungalow is comfortable and well equipped and has stunning sea views. The weather was changeable and we had to plan our trips according to the forecasts for which the fast internet was a great help. The children particularly enjoyed the trips to Black Gang Chine (which we visited twice), the Isle of Wight Steam Railway and Carisbrooke castle. All are just a short drive away (under 30mins). There is however plenty to do right by the bungalow on a lazy day as well. The surroundings are spacious and include a playground and crazy golf. It is a two minutes walk from the bungalow to the nice and sandy beach. The walk along the beach to Colwell bay with its colourful bathing huts is great and a visit to “The Hut” restaurant is highly recommended.

                                                              A tastefully decorated cosy and well equipped cottage located in a village just outside one of the most picturesque towns (Yarmouth) on the island. We had a warm welcome from Kristina and there was a welcome basket in the cottage. The Hot Tub just across our patio was a daily treat! This is an ideal place for a couple in a quiet but very accessible part of the island

                                                              Went with my family for a long bank holiday weekend. The property has recently been renovated and feels very fresh and clean. The patio doors in the living area provide a lovely view of the sea, which is just a short walk away. The rooms are clean and the beds are really comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom has a great powerful shower. The property is warm and cosy too. Great place as a based for exploring the island and also a nice home to relax in at the end of the day.
