About the property

Brambles Chine is part of the 40 acre Linstone Chine Holiday Village. Number 228 is situated on the unspoilt, picturesque West Wight coast, occupying a south facing, front line position on the site which provides a premium unobscured sea view across to the world famous Needles and views over farmland, towards Tennyson Down.

In front of the bungalow is a large grassed area leading to a safe bathing beach, only 3 minutes walk away. Further along the shore are a few souvenir shops, cafes, paddle boats and windsurf hire. From Colwell Bay to Totland bay there is a promenade walk to another beach, cafe and restaurant.

The bungalow is close to Yarmouth and Freshwater village where there is a good selection of shops, supermarkets, take-away meals, cafes and restaurants, plus a Leisure Centre and Swimming Pool.

Please note this property is clean and tidy but it has not been modernised as some have been on the site, this is reflected in the lower price, the site prices the chalets at £580 a week in the peak season.

There is an open plan lounge, kitchen and dining area from which can be seen views of the countryside and sea.

The kitchen is fitted with fridge, freezer, gas hob, electric oven and microwave. A gas combination boiler provides hot water and central heating if required. There is a colour T.V, DVD player and a small hifi unit. Site wireless Internet is available for £8.50 per week, (2017 rate) hourly and daily rates also available.

The bathroom is fully tiled with a washbasin, W.C, bath with shower over and a shaving point. Bedroom 1 has a double bed, bedroom 2 has pine bunk beds with space to pull out another single mattress situated under the bunk bed. In the lounge there is a 4' sofa bed. Bedding includes 2 double duvets, 3 single duvets,

blankets and pillows. Linen and duvet covers are not provided. These may be hired from the site office if required. The site office block houses a small shop, laundry room with 2 washing machines and 2 dryers (coin operated).

Places of interest in the area include Yarmouth Harbour and yachting Centre, the old town and castle, Alum Bay with its coloured sands and chairlift, the Needles Pleasure Park, Calbourne Mill and Chessell Pottery. From Freshwater Bay over Tennyson Down is perhaps the finest picturesque walk of all island walks. Afton Golf Club is nearby and Compton Bay, a long, unspoilt beach, popular for swimming and famous for its dinosaur fossils, is on the West coast road, a few miles south of Freshwater Bay.

Please note Cleaning is not included, it is let on a self cleaning basis, so it needs to be cleaned by the guest on departure.

Lovely place for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

Great place, peaceful, views of the needles and 2 minutes to a relatively quiet sandy beach ( in hot weather in June). Place was clean , cosy and had all we needed. The owners were friendly. We would stay here again, and recommend it.

Great location but not clean

  • 2 of 5

The views are amazing but the property is tired. I'd say that the price reflects that, except that it's not as described (no dishwasher) and it was so dirty that I spent 4 hours cleaning. We wouldn't go back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments and pointing out that there is a dishwasher listed - there never has been one there, it was not intentionally added so i will correct that mistake. The property is not a modern style, its decor is traditional, hopefully the photos reflect this, it is normally clean and tidy so apologies that it did not meet your standards, the property is rented on a self clean basis and is checked after every guest departs however I would not expect anyone to have to clean for 4 hours. Thank you for pointing out the great location, on the front line it is a premium position however we charge 10-20% less than the site charges and very few of the properties benefit from the view that no 228 does. The property is very good value and we have never had any other complaints and a 2 star review is not representative of the quality of the property.
