There are too many of us now to stay with relatives so we needed somewhere that could sleep six in comfort in the Sandown Bay Area. We had a good look around the Island including our traditional lunchtime visit to the Tollgate cafe in Bembridge - where amazingly the elderly lady and gentleman that have run this quirky gem for years and years are still going strong. The Dandelion cafe at Freshwater Bay provided another great coffee stop with an unbeatable view. Also pleased to see that you can still make a coloured sand ornament at Alum Bay. Travelled with Red Funnel - the catering is way better than Wightlink and the fares are a bit cheaper. The hour long crossing gives any visit more of a holiday feel.

The house has everything you could want. Its very spacious, and homely (not showhome) which suits me very well as I hate going to places where you feel you canot touch anything. Everything very clean and lots of stylish touches too. The games room is brilliant-we spent much of saturday night drinking and playing table tennis and pool. We went for long walks around the island and ate out at some lovely pubs. All in all a marvellous break-I cant wait to come back with my husband and children too. Thak you Caroline for you great hosting too!
