From the owner

BAYVIEW is situated on the 37-acre Linstone Chine coastal Holiday village, in the picturesque West Wight area centred around the Needles, nestling between fort Victoria coastal country park, Golden Hill Country park, and Colwell bay with its outstanding holiday facilities. It’s location in the quiet back row of the flat Brambles Chine section provides unobstructed views across a large playing field to the sea, allowing children to play within view, while you relax in the sun. Facing due south the sunsets and large sky are spectacular.

The Cottage combines modern facilities with a traditional seaside holiday, providing comfortably flexible accommodation within two bedrooms (king size / twin single). Doors in each bedroom open onto the rear for breakfasts in the morning sun. BAYVIEW was built in 2005 and is larger than all other bungalows in the holiday village enabling us to offer a KING SIZE (5ft) bedroom. Straps are also provided to link the twin single beds to form a SUPER KING (6ft) bed in the largest bedroom. There is a sofa bed in the main living room that can be used by a fifth guest.

The bathroom has shower/bath, and there is a second sink in the twin bedroom. The kitchen area has gas cooker, microwave, fridge with freezer compartment, pod coffee machine, quality pots, pans, crockery and cutlery for six.

All furnishings are to a high standard, and the cottage is spotlessly cleaned and sanitised for your safety and enjoyment.

In the living room a 43” wall mounted Smart UHD 4k TV provides NETFLIX and other streaming services free of charge. Full Fibre 100Mb broadband. Full gas central heating plus electric fire in the living room ensure your comfort. A round eight seater picnic table provides alfresco dining on the front patio, plus bistro table and chairs at rear. Two sun loungers complete the outdoor setting. A small BBQ and charcoal is provided.

Beds are fully made up when you arrive and laundered towels are provided. We ask you however, if coming by car, to please try to bring some of your own towels to help improve our sustainability. Straps in the bedside table allow you to link the twin single beds together around the bed posts to form a Super King 6ft bed, if preferred. Sleep well in our bio-sphere clean air. A travel cot and high chair are available free on request, and a booster cushion is provided for young children. If you intend to use the sofa-bed for a 5th guest please also let us know, so that we can provide pillows. A sleeping bag will be required.

The holiday village nestles between fort Victoria coastal country park, Golden Hill Country park, and Colwell bay with its outstanding holiday facilities. Activities on the playing field range from 9-hole fun golf, crazy golf, pitch-n-put, safe fenced children’s playground, grass open tennis court, half size football pitch, or just fly your own kite. A trim trail follows around the pathways of a second field.

Walk along the beach to Colwell Bay, or 5-minute drive, where clear, calm water, and gently sloping sand and shingle makes an ideal beach for swimming, boat and paddle board hire, alongside modern café and Bistro restaurants.

An easy walk further along the coastal promenade brings you to Totland Bay with the pier and waterfront beach restaurants. For the fit, a walk up and over National Trust’s Headon Warren for the view, then on to Alum Bay with coloured sands, amusements, and boat trips around the Needles.

A short car or bus drive away, but still in West Wight, you can enjoy West Wight Alpacas, Newtown Estuary, Calbourne Mill, with many designated cycle routes throughout. Surfers and kite surfing enthusiasts will enjoy Compton Bay, plus it’s a great place to go fossil hunting and see the dinosaur footprints at low tide. Tapnell Farm Park is local and great fun for a family day out. This however only touches on what you can do on the Isle of Wight. It's best to check what's happening in the local paper, and pick up the free ferry brochure as you travel across.

Further afield is Carisbrooke Castle, Robin Hill, the Dinosaur Museum, Osborne House, Ventnor Botanical Gardens (search for Steep Hill cove), the Pearl Centre and the sailing towns of Yarmouth and Cowes.
