About the property

2 bedroom bungalow; 3 minutes from beach

Number Forty has recently been lovingly refurbished to a very high standard. It is light and airy with a coastal style.

The holiday bungalow is part of the Linstone Chine Holiday village located between Colwell Bay and Yarmouth on the beautiful west coast of the Isle of Wight. The bungalow is minutes from the beach and a coastal path that can take you all the way to the Needles and Tennyson Downs if you are feeling energetic. It is also possible to walk to Yarmouth through the Fort Victoria Country Park where there are some great coffee shops, a deli and lovely restaurants.

Colwell Bay Beach is a blue flag beach and perfect for children, there are plenty of rockpools for crabbing at low tide. The sea is also very shallow for a very long way out - making it perfect for paddling for the little ones. It's also great for body boarding for the not so little ones.

We have installed broadband so internet access is excellent and reliable (as well as free). There is a PS3 and Wii as well as a good selection of games, books and DVDs. We have included little extras that we would expect when we stay away, such as plug sockets with USB charger sockets in the sitting room and an alarm clock with a charging station.

The patio has a lovely comfortable rattan effect dining set. Perfect for enjoying a coffee in the morning whilst watching the cows in the adjacent field. Whilst the patio does not have sea views, it has lovely rural views and is sheltered from the coastal breezes making it ideal for enjoying a glass of wine or for BBQs in the evening. A selection of outdoor toys, body boards, beach toys and deck chairs are provided.

There is a parking space directly behind the chalet.

We have also provided the following items for babies/toddlers so that you have less to pack. High chair, dining booster seat, toilet training seat, bathroom step stool, changing mat, blender, plastic cutlery, cups and plates.

The facilities on site include a small shop, launderette, playground, crazy golf and football pitch.

We have been letting the property for two years and have had many positive comments about how lovely the décor is and how well equipped the chalet is.

This is an example of the many positive comments from our visitors book.

"We absolutely love Number 40, it is exactly as we hoped it would be (and better!) and we are hoping to come back for a longer stay next year." Mrs M.

About Anita Evans

My family and I bought number 40 in 2015 so we can enjoy holidays together on the lovely west coast of the Isle of Wight.

Why Anita Evans chose Freshwater

It's so peaceful but within easy reach of local towns. We love running and cycling - you can be on some great coastal paths within minutes of leaving the property. The sunsets in the evening are amazing.

A lovely clean, fresh and modern beach base!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend visiting family on the IOW. It was great to stay at Number 40 where we had a lovely, clean, fresh and modern base to head back to after busy days out.

The children loved their twin bedroom (and the selection of DVDs!) and I was very excited about the coffee machine!

A great spot, close enough to Yarmouth for a night out and just a stone's throw away from The Hut, on the beach, for a refreshing gin and tonic after brisk walks!

I would definitely recommend Number 40. Clean, fresh, well equipped and really cosy day and night. There's no doubt - we'll be heading back soon!

Great chalet in rural seaside location

  • 4 of 5

Beautifully presented, clean and well equipped chalet. Pleasant outside seating area with table and chairs. Well maintained, quiet, spacious site. Less than five minutes walk to pretty beach and a great location for exploring West Wight. The owners have provided a good selection of local information, including places to visit, pubs/restaurants and maps, plus a selection of books, games and DVDs. Would definitely rent again and recommend to others.
