I've decided to give a write up on accomodation on this site as I couldn't really find any reviews or inside photos on the Ashurst Chalet, so I hope this helps somebody who finds themselves in our position before we "took the plunge!" and booked the chalet. Both are around the same price as each other too.
It's our second time to Hoburne Naish, last year we stayed in a Silver 3 bed caravan on Chewton Sound, which had no immediate sea view and was a good walk to reception/entertainment area. Interior was very trendy and comfortable throughout.
This time round we stayed in the Ashurst chalet on Bayview with a fantastic view of the Isle of Wight and not too far away from reception/ entertainment area. Near to the cliff edge but not uncomfortably/ dangerously so. The chalet itself I'd class as ok and average. Carpeted lounge with an ok 3 piece suite and circular wooden dining table with plenty of chairs and a flat screen tv. 2 bedrooms, one with a double bed, the other one with two singles in. Small bathroom with shower and a smaller than average bath. Kitchen was as you'd expect with plenty of utensils and a complimentary coffee/tea/sugar/whitener box to stop the panic when you realise you have none with you! All rooms and bedding were very clean and tidy. Nothing to brag about but just average and clean accomodation in a cracking location. Suited us fine.
Undecided as to whether we go for another caravan or chalet again next time. They both had their pros and cons.
We shall return next year as we've enjoyed our stay here both times we've been. My only disappointment was that they've introduced a charge for the tennis courts. It was free last year. £2 for half an hour or £4 for an hour. I saw nobody on them at any time which was a shame as I'd taken our rackets with a game or two in mind, but wasn't prepared to pay for the privilege to be honest, so unused they will remain.......
