“Everything you need on a holiday”
Reviewed April 23, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We had a nice holiday at Brambles Chine in Freshwater. The chalet was clean, well equipped and tastefully decorated. It is compact but has everything you need on a holiday. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay, it even included a Tassimo coffee machine as well as kettle and toaster, nice oven and hob, too! The beds were comfortable, there is a great selection of books, CDs and some games for children. There is a TV, DVD player, iron with ironing board and a hair dryer. There are laundry facilities on site for a small cost. You have to take your own towels, but washing up detergent, tea towel and sponge were included. All in all we had a great holiday accommodation and it's a short walk from the chalet down to the beach. Alumn Bay (the Needles) are very close and there are lovely beaches and Fort Victoria Park and Yarmouth Castle nearby. Other attractions are no more than 30 mins drive away. The owner, Wendy was very helpful and there is a lot of tourist information compiled in a booklet and tourist books to help plan your stay. Thanks for everything, if we're going to the Isle of Wight again, would definitely stay here next time, too.

“Fantastic family holiday, with stunning views across the sea to the Needles”
Reviewed April 21, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The stunning little house, is just perfect for a little family break. Incredible views, perfect location for travelling around the island. But you need no go anywhere... as the Summerhouse offers everything you need. The beach is just across the grass and the wonderful restaurant on the beach is just perfect. I would highly recommend a holiday at the Summerhouse. Wendy the host is absolutely great and very efficient. It was refreshing to be able to book instantly and obtain immediate response to our questions. Thank you so much for a memorable holiday Wendy. As mentioned, we will be back again as soon as we can.

“The perfect summer house!”
Reviewed June 24, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

person found this review helpful

We had a wonderful time here enjoying the wonderful chalet and sights of the Isle of Wight.
The chalet had everything we needed-comfortable beds, cooking accessories & homely comforts. The chalet is very clean and has recently been refurbished so has a modern feel.
The chalet is situated in a fabulous spot where you can very easily walk down to Colwell Bay and along to Totland Bay - it's a must!
Great spot for children where they can play outside on the big grass area right in front of the chalet. There is also a play park on the site. Our 4 year old loved finding crabs in the rock pools on the lovely natural sandy beach.
We recommend The Hut restaurant a short walk or drive from the chalet. Amazing food, fabulous service and great location! Also loved The Garlic Farm and Cowes- great day trips!
We would definitely stay here again! Great chalet for those wanting a home away from home in a perfect location. Excellent!

“Nice chalet”
Reviewed November 12, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Not a bad chalet. It's got everything you need, even a hairdryer and umbrella, some dvds to watch :) though we needed to bring our own towels which was fine with us.

Thank you for your review Natalia
We welcome comments and suggestions with regard to making our future guests more comfortable. We have thought of supplying towels but this would add to the rental price. A thought for the future though. Kind Regards. Wendy. S.

“Lovely summerhouse”
Reviewed September 14, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had a lovely holiday and found the summerhouse very spacious for 4 adults and a toddler.
The chalet had all amenities and was clean and modern
The service we experienced was excellent with great communication
The beach is a short walk away and very convenient

The only downside I would say is there is very little local amenities nearby so you would need a car.

Thank you for your review of The Summerhouse Alison. I would agree that a car would open up more opportunities to visit many other attractions available on the Island, other than local beaches, walking, cycling or simply relaxing on the patio watching the yachts go by or playing ball games, pitch and putt or flying kites. Kind Regards. Wendy. S.

Reviewed August 29, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a great holiday, the summer house was very nice, well equipped, homely, and clean and tidy and if any of our friends wish to go to the isle of wight I would strongly
recommend staying at the summer house. its a quiet site with small general shop/office and very close to Freshwater, with a Sainsbury's local and a great fish and chip shop.
If you want a great value Holiday the Summer House is highly recommended,
There is a lot to do for all the Family on the island, or you could go for walks in the beautiful countryside or just enjoy the Beaches and relax.
