About the property

Bungalow in Brambles Chine, Freshwater, Isle of Wight, England - Peaceful Location 3 Minutes Walk From The Beach And A Few Steps From The Coastal Path

This holday bungalow can accommodate 4 people in two bedrooms. It is comfortable,clean and bright with spectacular views of the Needles and only 3 minutes walk to a safe beach. The round-the-Island coastal path passes through the site, within a few steps of the bungalow. Brambles Chine is a 40 acre site of privately owned semi-detached holiday bungalows surrounded by well tended lawns. It is in a peaceful location, approached by an unmade up road. The site facilities include a small shop, launderette, pitch and putt, crazy golf, grass tennis court, football pitch, swings and more but this bungalow is in a very quiet part of the site, on the opposite side from the recreation area.

About Margaret Matthews

I grew up on the Isle of Wight and, although I spent my working life on the mainland, I always retained a nostalgic affection for "the Island". In 2011, following retirement and serious illness, I was able to buy this bungalow as a peaceful retreat to help with my recovery. Now that I am well again I have resumed my hobby of spending extended periods motorcaravanning and this is why I have decided to let my bungalow so that it can be enjoyed by other people rather than leaving it standing empty.

Margaret Matthews purchased this bungalow in 2011

Why Margaret Matthews chose Freshwater

Brambles Chine was an ideal choice, being very easily reached from Yarmouth. It is on the quieter side of the Island and, of course, the location and views cannot be beaten. The particular bungalow I chose is in a secluded and peaceful part of the site which appealed to me.

What makes this bungalow unique

The property is ideal as a base for gentle or strenuous walking, cycling or sailing activities, for visiting all the attractions which the Island has to offer, or just for enjoying the peace and quiet and the beautiful views.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Some comments from our Visitors' Book:

"We all had a brilliant week. The house has all the comforts of home in a tranquil setting. Friendly neighbours and an excellent beach for inquisitive rockpoolers and beachcombers. Very sad it's over" (August 2013)

"Very comfortable home base for two brilliant weeks on the Island. Appreciated the extra touches of the wine, tea and coffee on arrival. Best view on the site - or one of them" (May 2014)

"Bungalow was lovely. Brilliant spot. We loved the views and the quietness. Fantastic beach. Great weather. The bungalow was really comfortable which was great after long days out exploring the Island" (August 2014)

"Thanks for a great stay. The week flew by. The walks must be some of the best in Britain and the weather couldn't have been better. Great holiday" (September 2014)

"We've had a relaxing break and the children have thoroughly enjoyed it here. The house is comfortable and well equipped and the location is fantastic. Such a lovely view to look out on each day and the sunny weather made it even more enjoyable and picturesque. We will happily return" (September 2014)

fantastic bungalow and location

  • 5 of 5

You often see pictures of amazing views that require a long walk ... this was the view from the breakfast table every day. It put us in the mood for walking every time. The site was perfectly positioned for easy walks to Freshwater and Yarmouth, and we did manage a couple of big walks as well over Compton Down and from Cowes to Yarmouth. On the latter it got dark, really dark, whilst walking through Bouldnor Forest but it was exhilarating. The bungalow had everything you need plus the bottle of wine on arrival was a rare treat.

Quiet, clean and comfortable. Home from home

  • 4 of 5

The bungalow was great, wonderful sea view and close to the beach. Everything you need for a relaxing time, especially the thoughtful extras like milk tea and coffee and not forgetting the wine!. All attractions were easy to get to and the information leaflets left were an inspiration :-) We had a great time and would highly recommend a stay here.

3 minutes on foot to the beach.


Brambles Chine is a ten minute drive from the Wight Link ferry terminal at Yarmouth (from Lymington). Early booking is recommended.

It is possible to walk to it via the coastal path in 40 minutes and there are excellent bus services on the Isle of Wight but a car is recommended for maximum benefit.


Totland and Freshwater are about two miles away and Yarmouth is about 3.

Further Details:

Nowhere is very far from anywhere else on the Isle of Wight and it is possible to enjoy all the Island attractions from this bungalow by car or excellent bus service. Close at hand there is Freshwater with a variety of local shops and 2 small supermarkets (Coop and Sainsburys), a hairdresser, library and Leisure Centre including swimming pool. Lots of places to eat including restaurants, cafes and takeaway shops. Yarmouth has fewer, more specialised shops and caters more for tourists with many cafes, restaurants and hotels. Colwell Bay is a ten minute walk along the beach providing a beach shop and two tea rooms.

No pets. Unfortunately the site rules permit only owners' pets in the bungalows.
