Suntrap is a very unusual and unique holiday chalet on the Isle of Wight. The chalet which is decorated, furnished and equipped to a very high standard encloses an old railway carriage. The carriage was originally built in the 1880's and after years of operation in Lincolnshire was shipped over from the mainland to run on the local Newport to Yarmouth line. It is located in 2/3rd of an acre of gated and fenced oak woodland inhabited by some the Island's famous red squirrels overlooking Wootton Creek with its variety of wild fowl and bird life. It's a very peaceful spot broken only by the occasional shout of glee from the neighbouring PGL Little Canada Adventure Activity Centre. A great place to explore the Island from, or relax at the house and watch the tide coming in and out.

The fully refurbished and modernised railway carriage comprises four compartments which have been converted into a bathroom , two bedrooms one twin and one single with additional folding bed available and a kitchen. The surrounding chalet adds a double bedroom, lounge, dining room, sun room leading to small deck area, as well as a larder attached to the kitchen and entrance vestibule.

Adjacent to the chalet is a tongue and groove garage building and carport, one end of which contains a further shower, toilet, butlers sink and washing machine. Garage itself not available, and nor is the caravan.

Chalet and garden fenced and gated..

The Isle of Wight region

Wootton Bridge is on the north side of the Island, and has easy access to the main towns of Ryde and Newport. Wootton itself is well serviced with it's own shops,pubs restaurant and take-aways, spa, bus route, doctor's surgery and vet.

The chalet is on the west side of Wootton Creek, overlooking the water. with the tide always on the move there is a lot to see, from dragon boat racing from Little Canada (PGL holiday centre) to wading birds on the mud flats at low tide.

Woodside beach is a 10-15 minute walk from the chalet, more of an interesting beach, rock pools etc, than a sandy swimming beach!

Sandy beaches are all around the Island, for those and other attractions please visit www.visitisleofwight.co.uk .

Other places to visit nearby are Robin Hill Country Park, Owl and Monkey Haven and the Havenstreet Steam Railway. There is easy access to the Isle of Wight coastal path, and cycle track.

Wootton Bridge

Situated off the south coast of England, the Isle of Wight is a short ferry crossing away. From busy little towns to the wild 'back of the Wight' coastline it's geography is very varied. Now known for it's many festivals (Bestival, Isle of Wight Festival, festival of the sea, walking festival, arts festival, literary festival, dinosaur Isle etc etc) there are many events to choose from.

There are large sandy beaches around the coast, water activities such as sailing , canoeing, fishing and surfing are also available. There are a number of companies running sailing courses and activity courses. The Island has a number of golf courses, has wonderful walks and delightful wildlife!

For those of you that like history, a visit to Carisbrooke Castle is a must, along with Osborne House and the Roman Villa. Searching for fossils is also a great pastime, a guided tour is a good way to learn about what to look for.

There are many excellent pubs and restaurants to suit all tastes, beach bars and cafes too.

If you have never been to the Island it's well worth a visit at any time of the year, and if you have been before, it's time to come back!
