Overview

About the property

Seaside Chalet near Freshwater and Yarmouth, Isle of Wight, a minute's walk to the sandy beach, safe bathing, spectacular sea and coastal views

Sunnyside Bungalow faces South and the sun streams in all day through the big picture window. Not only that, but it has one of the best locations of any bungalow on this private holiday park. A few paces away are the cliffs overlooking the beach of Colwell Bay and from the sitting room and patio you have views of the famous Needles landmark that juts out into the Solent. You can watch ships coming and going and see sunsets that take your breath away. Freshwater, 2 miles down the road, is where you will do your food shopping and the Red Lion is a favourite pub with visitors. The pretty historic port of Yarmouth is where the ferry comes in from Lymington and here you'll find a host of places to eat on a night out. Nearer to home, and directly on the beach, are popular cafes and bars like “The Hut” and “The Waterfront” which have wonderful views, especially at sunset. It's cosy and family-friendly with other bungalow guests nearby for children to meet and play with in the grounds, or on the safe beach below. We have made every effort in decorating the bungalow to reflect its seaside location with painted wood panelling, ship models and pictures and comfy sofas and chairs. There are books to read, guides on the Isle of Wight, and plenty of games to play with, as well as TV with Freeview, and most importantly for many, our own unlimited use of the Internet. If you like walking, cycling, riding, sailing or just exploring the island's many attractions, we think our cosy bungalow with its great seaside location and views will be ideal for you – self-catering on the Isle of Wight at its best!

About Barbara Lascelles

We are semi-retired, living in London where we run an antique clock business, hiring out clocks as props for television and film and taking part in antique fairs where we sell clocks to the public, interior designers and restaurants.

Roger particularly likes travelling and tourism. He studied Tourism at the University of Hawaii and subsequently became Director of Tourism in the Seychelles. He enjoys the tourism potential of the Isle of Wight.

We have two grown up children, who also live in London and enjoy a holiday on the Isle of Wight with their own families as much as we do.

Barbara Lascelles purchased this chalet in 2010

Why Barbara Lascelles chose Isle of Wight

In 2010 we were staying with friends at their bungalow and enjoyed the holiday so much, that we purchased a bungalow there and then, near the sea with uninterrupted views over the Solent.

We had first planned to use it for ourselves and to rent it out occasionally, but when we found out about this bungalow, which had stunning views and sun all day long, we decided to buy it just for letting as a holiday home. It also offered us the opportunity that our children could join us on a holiday here while having their own space.

What makes this chalet unique

Linstone Chine is a magical place, so near to the sea, unspoilt and far away from the hustle and bustle of a town or city. The perfect place to relax, but also a good starting place for exploring the island on foot, by bike or by car.

The bungalow is only minutes away from the beach leading up to Colwell Bay, which is in part sandy and perfect for holiday entertainment. The 40 acre of ground surrounding the bungalows are always well kept and offer plenty of space for activities and incorporates a pitch'n put golf course, a football pitch and a substantial children's climbing frame and play area.

We very much enjoy that we can be on our own if we want to and meet people in other bungalows if we feel like it. The place is never crowded.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a BRILLIANT time on the IOW. The location was WONDERFUL - spectacular views of the sea and sunset. We tried to eat outside for all our meals to admire it. Great location for country walks along the coastal path or nature reserves. We LOVED being so close to the sea and being able to so quickly walk down to it. Another highlight was going on a guided FOSSIL HUNT at Compton Bay. Contact the Dinosaur Farm for details. The bungalow had everything we needed and was very comfortable. Thank You!

This is a bungalow with personality and nit had everything we needed.

  • 4 of 5

We found endless walks, to right and to left, it did not matter which way, there are astonishing and beautiful views. The sandy beach to the right is so lovely for swimming and further along to the left are good cafes. You can walk the mile or two to Totland and the Waterfront Cafe and if it looks to be high tide take the steps up and walk the countryside back. We enjoyed the top deck of the Breezer, a marvellous way to see the Island and enjoyed the Gossip cafe and the Bugle Inn. Further afield we amazed by the Ventnor Botanical Gardens and the Roman house in Newport - well worth a visit.

A wonderful island producing fantastic memories

  • 5 of 5

Divine. Suited and met all requirements. Homely, extremely well equipped and maintained. Cosy, amazing and not scary at all are descriptions given by my children! Access to beach also fab. Will definitely return In the future and recommend to others. Very well priced and not a rip off as I have found with other holiday accommodation who seem to over inflate prices due to time of year. This makes a huge difference to families and is a reason why recommendations are given to others.
