The Isle of Wight region
Famous for its superb beaches, dramatic coastlines and outstanding natural beauty, the Island is a holiday haven with something for everyone. From secluded coves and wide expanses of sandy beaches it’s not just the stunning landscapes that attract visitors to the Island, but the variety of things to see and do. Rich in a wide variety of sporting and leisure activities, visitors return year after year to enjoy another holiday with Home from Home Holidays. Self-catering is the most popular option because it is both cost effective and offers flexibility with the freedom to come and go as you please.
The Freshwater / Freshwater Bay area
The West Wight is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Visit Alum Bay's famous coloured sand cliffs or take a boat trip to one of Britain's most famous natural landscapes, the Needles. Freshwater offers a good range of quaint shops in the town centre, and like Yarmouth, is busy all year round. Freshwater Bay is a good starting point for the Tennyson Trail - a dramatic walk along towering cliff-tops. Compton Bay's long sandy beach is not only a popular spot for surfing and swimming, but its world famous dinosaur fossil finds. Yarmouth has some excellent shops, and several superb restaurants and pubs. Take time to explore Totland Bay with its pretty beach and short esplanade, and for birdwatching visit Newtown's Nature Reserve.
Winkle Street in Calbourne, just west of Newport is probably the most well know street on the island. A charming terrace of stone faced cottages with a stream running past, providing the most picturesque setting imaginable, as depicted on many a local postcard or tea towel. Shorwell and Chale are both quaint welcoming villages to the south east of the island providing the ideal holiday surroundings with village shops and friendly pubs/restaurants.

Milton Stables was a lovely warm place to come back to after a walk on Freshwater Bay front. The cottage had everything you could possible want the only thing you had to remember was to mind your head in the bedrooms.
Freshwater Bay is in the west of the Island and coming home along the Military Road and seeing the view of the cliffs and the setting sun is very spectacular!!!!!
I would definitely love to stay again and would recommend Milton Stables to my friends.
Thank you for your lovely review. We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back in the future.

The property is in a quiet location but not far from The Needles and Compton Beach which is great for bodyboarding.
Milton Stables not reccommended for tall people especially upstairs.
The wet room is great and the seating area outside.

Situated in the centre of a square of properties.Secluded and private.Quiet area.5 mins walk from Freshwater Bay and across the road was the walkway to Tennyson monument.A post office and a local grocery store within 5 mins walk.The grocery store was well stocked and reasonably priced with local produce.
The property itself is a converted stables with the sleeping accommodation suitable for 4 people.The main bedroom had an ensuite ( but did not have a built in shower).The property is well insulated and was warm.The property was well presented and nicely finished.It had an extended kitchen with a wet room at the far end.Washing machine,dishwasher,fridge and freezer supplied.
We had the best week for weather with 6/7 days being hot and the 7th cloudy.the kids played happily outside-mainly on the swing rope.We took a dog which had a great time.
The Tv (should you need it had the basic channels and the signal was poor due to being surrounded by taller properties).A DVD player was also supplied.
Freshwater bay is quiet in the south and relatively near 'the needles' but 10 mins from a Sainsburys local and everywhere we went was a short and pleasant drive (Cowes was only 30 mins drive).
We would have no hesitation in returning as we had a great time!
Take a satnav....
Thank you for your lovely review. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back in the future.
