About Pamela Stafford

I am married and have children and grandchildren. My family and ourselves love visiting our bungalow on the Isle of Wight and would very much like to invite you to come and experience the pleasure we get from it. Our children have grown up coming here and now our grandchildren are doing the same.

Pamela Stafford purchased this bungalow in 1995

Why Pamela Stafford chose Freshwater

We fell in love with the Isle of Wight and so found and purchased our bungalow. We chose the West Wight and this site as it is a very quiet, peaceful area. We feel at peace here and can relax. It is close to the ferry at Yarmouth and all the Island attractions if we wish to venture out.

What makes this bungalow unique

Our bungalow is like home from home. We have only used it ourselves for holidays in the past and have fitted it with everything we needed including washing machine and dishwasher and TV in each room.

Lovely area

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't sleep properly as light came in window,seats in front room were low to sit on,but apart from that we had a lovely stay and loved the area and saw a few places,its a pity that I used the washing machine the day before we left and couldn't dry the washing as it rained outside and there was no clothes horse.

Owner's Response: The West Wight is a lovely quiet part of the Island to enjoy a relaxing holiday. There is a laundrette on site with large dryers at only £1 so you can dry your washing should it rain. There are vertical blinds and curtains to the bedroom windows to cut out the light.

Homley cosy little place

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. its so quiet and traditional. the beach was minutes away . Fantastic views. The chalet was homely and traditionaly furnished. Clean.Could do with a good fettle under the beds as i caused a bit of dust getting sun loungers out which set my asthma off. Easy to use washer and dishwasher. A decent shower everything in the kitchen area you need,even an egg poacher pan,which we used and verily enjoyed for breakfast. The only thing we didnt have was lashings of ginger beer. Lovely walks around the area, pony trekking up the road. Wildlife areas a plenty. Overall a brilliant place to stay to see the island.

Owner's Response: The west Wight is noted for being the quiet side of the Island and the site the chalet/bungalow is on is quiet and peaceful. Ideal place if you want to get away from busy towns. The comment about the sun loungers and under the bed has been noted and dealt with. Ideal place for people that want to chill out.

Very comfortable, a home from home

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with the home and the site. We had everything we needed and were very comfortable. To be able to see the sea every day was very nice, and we struck lucky with the weather. The location was ideal for us, quiet, but within easy reach of the sites we wished to visit. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday, and one we would not hesitate to repeat.

Well equipped bungalow in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This holiday bungalow is located within a very nicely set out holiday village on the clifftops overlooking Colwell Bay towards the Needles. The location is very quiet, with ample green spaces, a useful shop, minigolf - and very quick access to the beach. The property itself is clean and very well equipped, with compact but comfortable accommodation and a pleasant outside space with parking for 1 car. The owner is friendly and gave us very good communication throughout the booking process. Although many guests may wish to use it as a beach break (the grounds are tranquil and there are spectacular sunsets to enjoy), we spent two weeks using the cottage as the basis for exploring the island. Nowhere on the island is more than 40 mins away, and many attractions are much closer. The site is also on the very well signposted island coastal path. in particular, the Needles, Yarmouth and watersports in Freshwater Bay are very close.

Owner's Response: I do my utmost to answer enquiries promptly and efficiently and make the booking process straightforward. It is very nice to hear guests say thank you and how they have enjoyed their holiday, The bungalow has everything I would wish to find myself for a comfortable, self catering holiday. There is plenty of outside space for children to play safely and the beach is a safe bathing beach. There is a drawer full of brochures of Island attractions for guests to browse through and decide which they would like to visit. In the evenings guests can enjoy the lovely sunsets we get here in the West Wight. There is a TV set in the Lounge and 1 in each bedroom so children can watch their own programmes while their parents watch something else or be lazy and relaxed and watch TV in bed. The Island has attractions to suit all tastes so there is always something to visit and enjoy or just have a beach holiday. Whatever your taste I'm sure you will enjoy your stay on the Isle of Wight and in my bungalow.
