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 Freshwater
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.

A wonderful island and wonderful accommodation
Second time visitors to this particular property. We were impressed, as before, with this very lovely home from home chalet with spectacular views of the Needles. Was lucky enough to meet the owner on this particular visit. A lovely lady. Would be happy to visit again and will definitely recommend to friends
Bungalow was in need of some upgrade especially the electric but we did enjoy our stay very much. Very quiet and peaceful which was perfect.
Fabulous accommodation in a fantastic position
This is the 3rd time we've stayed here. It's such a lovely place to spend a relaxing holiday. Stunning views and a wonderful bungalow. Highly recommend it to anyone.
Thank you so much for your enthusiastic description of our bungalow and its location, which obviously has contributed again to a fabulous holiday, not forgetting the weather, which has been glorious.
Very pleasant property
Very pleasant property, well equipped. Bedroom very tight but bed extremely comfortable. Well located for exploring the island. Approach road to property leaves a lot to be desired. Having said that, it wouldn't stop us holidaying there again in the future.
Thank you for reviewing your holiday stay in our bungalow and we are pleased to read that you are happy to return and enjoy another holiday in our bungalow. You are quite right about the road, Monks Lane, leading up to Linstone Chine, but there are now plans to improve it.
Very clean lovely views,everything you need there.Close to beach .great walks very quiet.
