Gurnard is a great base to explore The island from and we would defiantly like to return. A welcome bottle of wine was a lovely touch, thank you Kate for a great break. Denise and Matt (Surrey)

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.
