The Space

This is a brick build 2 bedroomed semi detached bungalow in a wooded holiday park near the sea and Cowes, Isle of Wight. It is light and tidy with furniture and fittings for up to 4 people. There is an open plan sitting/dining/kitchen area, with TV/DVD player and free wifi throughout the holiday home. There are 2 separate bedrooms (one with a double bed and one with adult sized bunk beds) Each bedroom has room for a baby's cot or child 's floor mattress. There is one bathroom with shower over the bath. Beds are made up for you and towels (except beach towels) are provided. Optional extras to buy at the Holiday park include the use of indoor and outdoor swimming pools, fitness suite, tennis courts, bike hire and indoor children's play/adventure area. There is a cafe on site. The sea, country walks, a pub, shop, newsagent and good restaurant are all within 10 - 15 minutes walk. These are in and around the village of Gurnard. Cowes town is a couple of miles away and has a range of useful and interesting shops, cafes, restaurants, galleries, museums, a fast ferry to the mainland, and boats galore! The island has many attractions for children, miles of walks and cycle tracks and quiet country roads to quaint villages and interesting towns.There is a bus service but you'd be more flexible with a car for which there is parking by the chalet. I live nearby and can be available to help with any queries as needed. Sorry - smoking and pets are not allowed in the chalet. The chalet is suitable for singles and couples as it is for families. For those of you from outside the UK, please be aware that the chalet is on the Isle of Wight which is off the south coast of England and has frequent car and foot passenger ferries from Southampton. Portsmouth and Lymington in the New Forest.

  • We had a very nice stay at Janets she was very helpful and lwft some basic food in the fridge. I had a great walk at night from the local pub back home along the hedgerows and farm yards with the sleeping sheep. All went well for us.

  • Janet is a warm, friendly and most of all an excellent host! The chalet was clean, cosy and well prepared with clean beddings and towels. The kitchen was fully equipped. The surrounding was peaceful and was perfect for our stay on the island.
    Janet is also very efficient and responsive to our communications with her.

  • This was one of the greatest value for money experiences that I have ever come across. The two bedroom apartment continued to surprise us. From all the wonderful things that make a place a home, rather than the empty shell with most rented places. Butter, milk and jams in the fridge; spices and olive oil (many more things besides) in the cupboards; from an iron to a washing machine - and a wonderful comfy bed -there was everything you needed to have a successful break. Janet is a very caring host.
    On a holiday village, surrounded by trees and only a mile from Cowes center.
    Wonderful experience

  • It's really neat and lovely, got everything you would need. Janet is so nice, drove us to the house from the town and offered a lot of help. Do hope we could live there for longer. We will come back again!

  • We had a great time at Janets chalet, despite the poor weather! The chalet had everything we needed for our stay (including a hairdryer, very useful!). It was comfortable, and the kitchen was really very useful. Location was good for exploring the island, and the park itself is nice and quiet.
    I would definitely recommend Janets property, and would consider booking again for our next trip to the Isle of Wight.

  • We enjoyed a most wonderful stay at Janet's. Her home had everything we could possibly need and more. Spotlessly clean, bright and beautifully decorated, the apartment was very comfortable and roomy. The location is perfect the travellers, everything was at our fingertips and we woke every morning to birdsong and sunshine. I highly recommend Janet's and the Isle of Wight.

  • We had a really nice time in Janet´s place in the Isle of Wight. She came to pick us up from the Ferry and she brought us to the port again the last day. The house is exactly as described. The location is perfect, but make sure you hire a car with some weeks in advance, since there were no more cars left in Cowes when we called to book one. Fortunately Janet managed to find for us a company in Newport. There is also plenty of maps, guides, directories and useful stuff in the house...And a record player!

    We will definitely go again to the same place when visiting IOW next time.

  • Janet is a wonderful and friendly host. She makes sure that you've got everything you need. She even borrowed me her bike and her coffee grinder and is a rich and enthusiastic guide. She knows a lot about where to go and there are plenty of maps and leaflets with local information.

    The cottage itself is very cosy, clean, comfortable and complete: everything you need is there.

    I had a great time, thanks Janet!
