The holiday park itself is well situated within easy assess to the nearby town/beach, Sandown (walking distance). The chalet is dog friendly, good walks straight from the site. We visited this chalet in mid winter and probably didn't see the site at its best, but although the chalet was excellent the site looked a little run down. But well worth a visit and great value.

It's been well thought out and everything you will need is there. Everything worked as it should and it was nice and peaceful. I should also mention we were allowed to take our small dog with us which is one of the reasons we chose the place. We wouldn't hesitate in booking again and the rates are extremely competitive when you bear in mind it's only a short walk to the beach.

The flat was beautifully warm despite the cold winter weather outside. Kitchen was well equipped for a family. We were unable to utilise the parking spot as it was so small but as it was winter we were able to park on the seafront for free without a problem. There are wonderful seafront walks in either direction and a very short walk to shops and cafes.
