About the property

Bungalow at Brambles Chine, Freshwater, Isle of Wight, England - Great Views Of Colwell Bay And The Needles, Just A Few Minutes Walk From Beach

This chalet sleeps 5 people in two bedrooms plus sofa bed in lounge. It comprises an open plan lounge with dining area and kitchenette. Positioned on the cliff top close to the beach and Isle of Wight coastal path and with direct views of Colwell Bay and the Needles. The chalet was refurbished in 2012 and now has a new kitchen for 2015 to include a dishwasher. Situated on a 40 acre communal site other available facilities include launderette, crazy golf, pitch and putt, tennis court, play park and football pitch.


We, the home owners, can process the booking but we want to let you know the following before you decide on which payment method to make:

Owners Direct have chosen to add a "service fee" when you choose the option to "Request to Book", as opposed to simply enquiring via the "Enquire now" button, which is not displayed as obviously as the "Request to Book" button.

This "service fee" is justified by them because they claim it allows them to offer you more financial security when booking in this way.

Unfortunately, Owners Direct now leaves it to their clients (us home owners) to divulge this unfair (in our opinion) charging procedure to holidaymakers.

So effectively, if you process the booking via "Request to book", rather than via "Enquire now", wishing to pay us via bank transfer, this could cost you more.

We have been renting this bungalow since 2011 and been handling payments by cheque and by bank transfer without a single complaint or problem about payment security. We can also take payments via paypal.

So, if you pay us by bank transfer rather than via Owners Direct’s “Request to Book”, it will be cheaper for you.

For more information please contact us on 01285652662.

We feel obliged to mention this to you, since Owners Direct don't.

We're sorry about this but you will find what owners like ourselves think of Owners Direct now by reading the comments on TrustPilot.

So, we suggest you use "Enquire now" rather than "Request to Book".

About Ian and Diane Kidd

We are a professional married couple from Gloucestershire with three children ranging from 24 to 18.

Ian and Diane Kidd purchased this bungalow in 2011

Why Ian and Diane Kidd chose Isle of Wight

As a family we have been coming to Brambles Chine renting another chalet since our eldest was a baby.

We were lucky enough to have the chance to become owners of 224 in 2011.

We now look forward to continuing our love affair with Brambles Chine and the Isle of Wight as we get older. With grown up children and more time to ourselves we no have the chance to relax on our own in our get-away.

What makes this bungalow unique

We have one of the best views on the site, directly across Colwell Bay to the Needles, and are also on the edge of the site, so not overlooked by other chalets.

The chalet is South facing so has the sun pretty much all day. As we use the chalet regularly, we have equipped the chalet very much with our stay in mind, so have comfortable beds and all the other little bits and pieces to make it a home from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely holiday bungalow with great view over colwell bay and the needles. We have stayed at 224 four times now and have enjoyed all our holidays so far. (from 224 Brambles Chine facebook page )

Perfect holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a long weekend with my partner, absolutely loved it! The chalet is well looked after, very clean and had everything that we needed for our stay. The view is exellent and the chalet is in a great location. Really looking forward to going back again in the future and would highly recommend to anyone wishing to stay on the Isle of Wight.

Beautiful views of the Needles. Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant communication with owners, fast responses which started the visit off in a friendly manner.

Overwhelmed by the first evening spent at the Chalet, watching the pink skies of the sunset from the beach (2minute walk from Chalet) and getting our first glimpse of the Needles in the distance.

Although we were blessed with a heatwave week, it was comforting to know we had such a lovely Chalet to retreat to each night. Immaculately clean, comfy furniture in all rooms. Modern kitchen. And a brilliant guide put together by the owners!

We would definitely recommend the fish & chips in Freshwater! Walking down towards the bay really makes you forget that you are still in the UK.

Overall a fantastic little holiday for ourselves, we will definitely return. This is how a holiday Chalet should feel - credit to the owners!

A great place to stay and revisit!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this location so much last August that we had to stay again this Easter. The bungalow has a lovely view to the Needles, which is a great way to enjoy breakfast every morning before exploring the beautiful coastline and the scenic walks. The owner provides lots of little extras that make this feel like a home from home to us. My two boys want to return and so we shall. Recommended.

Fantastic Chalet with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a glorious week at Brambles Chine, it was my first visit to IOW since I was a child and my husband's and daughter's first visit and we weren't disappointed! The chalet was perfectly situated on the site with a lovely view of Colwell Bay, it was so peaceful and relaxing, with lots of grass out the front for our 6 year old to run around on safely. The chalet was spotlessly clean and really well equipped to make a pleasant stay away from home. A short 2 minute stroll lead us down to the lovely bay and when we were feeling more adventurous we took the open top bus to Yarmouth and then on Alum Bay and the Needles which was great fun! The island is beautiful and we hope to come back and stay at Brambles Chine again next year!

fab holiday

  • 5 of 5

Me and my daughter had a lovely holiday. The views from the chalet are beautiful and it is so close to the beach which was fantastic. The chalet was clean and spacious. There is plenty of space on site for the children to play and we loved playing the crazy golf. We can't wait to go and stay again.
