“Beautiful chalet in a wonderful location.”
Reviewed July 30, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The Summerhouse is a beautiful chalet in the perfect location. Only a 5 minute walk from the beach the chalet is well equipped and has fantastic views of the sea. There is a green in front of the chalet where our children loved playing. The owner, Wendy is lovely. We enjoyed a fantastic week on the island and will definitely be returning as soon as we can.

Reviewed July 17, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Amazing summerhouse. Perfect size and excellent standard with a 2 min walk to the beach. Loved waking up everyday to have breakfast watching the sea from the summerhouse! Excellent accommodation and Wendy is lovely to deal with. We will definitely be back next summer and we already have friends and family excited to stay here! Thanks Wendy!

“fantastic break perfect place”
Reviewed June 19, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The accommodation was great , very clean and comfortable, very spacious with 2 good sized bedrooms. Excellent views and just a short distance to the beach. The owner Wendy was very helpful and informative. There is a small shop on site which provided all your essential needs and a also a laundrette .Freshwater was less than 5 minutes away with all your shopping needs and nice cafés and Oriental foods. The Island itself is beautiful with lots of attractions to suit everyone. We travelled round to Cowes, Ryde,The Needles Shanklin but we especially enjoyed Sandown with its pier and lovely cafe on the front which provided great cappuccino and cakes !! . It was great after a long day out to go back to the beautiful clean chalet relax and sleep
in a very comfortable bed. We will certainly be returning ASAP.
PS the weather was fantastic

“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.
