Comfortable, clean and everything we could possibly need.supplied. We had a great week - in spite of the weather - and look forward to returning soon. Thank you!
We stayed one night in Tennyson, what an amazing location.
We really enjoyed a glass of wine on our own patio, breathtaking views, and so peaceful.
The room was equipped with everything you could possibly need, and the bed was lovely and comfortable.
Thank you for an enjoyable and restful stay.
Can?t wait for the time to be able to book again soon!

We stayed for 3 nights in The Needles. Steve and Charlotte have put a great deal of thought and attention into the accommodation here. It is a delight. Bright and airy with fabulous views and extremely well equipped with a very comfortable bed. Lovely outside space too. A great pub a short walk across the road. We would have no hesitation in recommending Chale Bay Farm.

We stayed in the Tennyson with beautiful views of the needles and the sea. The room was really clean, large and very well equipped. We would definitely stay again. Thank you

We stayed at St Catharines for 2 nites. Comfortable, modern and spacious with well equipped kiitchen/ lounge with bifolding doors onto the garden. Lovely countryside views from our patio and dramatic views of Freshwater and the Needles from the complex.
Coffee maker with pods a nice touch when i discovered how to use it!
Dinner at nearby White Mouse Inn was a treat watching the sun go down over the sea.
The drive along the coast to Freshwater has to be the highlight of our short break stopping off at Compton Bay - one of the islands best kept secrets - with the morning sun on the chalk cliffs...absolutely stunning.
Also reccommend the Best Dressed Crab on the harbour at Bembridge for lunch.

Our apartment - Purbeck View - at Chale Bay Farm was immaculate and very comfortable

Fantastic accommodation in an excellent location if you want to be just a 10-15 minute drive from the buzz of any town or local attraction. The pub is actually just across the road, a couple of minutes walk, were you'll find the locals, happy for a chat. Morning views of the sea and coast are breath taking! Highly recommend a stay, we're definitely going back!

Chale Bay Farm was our second stay on the island this year and we could not have been more impressed with our 3 nights in Purbeck View. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and every need was catered for. Unfortunately, with so much to do on the island, we never even got to take advantage of the gym facilities on offer.
Steve was always on hand to assist if he was needed. I couldn't recommend this place highly enough and to top it off the pub just across the road served great food and real ales as well as having a spectacular sea view to the rear. We would love to return one day!

Absolutely lovely place to stay in good or bad weather. Rooms are huge, beds very comfortable, the place is extremely clean and quiet. Views are stunning. Excellent hosts and communication. I cannot fault it. Very clear instructions and superb folder of what to do in the area. We would've liked to have stayed longer. Highly recommend.

We had a wonderful stay at Chale Bay Farm. The accommodation was amazing, perfect location and absolutely spotless. We found it much larger than it appears in the pictures. The kids had a great holiday. Thank you so much!

An amazing apartment, with outstanding views. After a long days walk or cycle, it was the most perfect place to come back to and relax and enjoy watching the weather pass by, which was very varied during out stay. The apartment itself, has everything and more that you could need or wish for, including lots of lovely little thoughtful extras. We cannot fault the place at all.

Extremely clean property which is particularly reassuring at the moment. Kitchen was well stocked with essentials (including laundry detergent, dishwasher tablets, foil). Bed was very large and comfortable and the addition of air conditioning in the bedroom was a bonus. Surrounding scenery was amazing, particularly at sunset. The handbook gave some useful information about the island. Very professionally run.

Amazing place. If you are visiting the Isle of Wight this is definitely the place to stay. Great location, superb accommodation and amazing hosts. I visited with my two sons for a short break and it was perfect. We did not want to leave. Spacious, clean with excellent amenities perfect for a family.

Lovely and clean accommodation. Really appreciate the extra cleaning efforts made during the Covid pandemic. A perfect location for coastal walks to watch the sunset and it's nearby some great beaches. Will return again in the future.

We could not find any fault. the Apartment was scrupulously clean, the beds were very comfortable. Everything was provided, you literally just needed your toothbrush and clothes. Would highly recommend staying here.

We had a fantastic time with our 2 little granddaughters aged 2 & 5. We stayed in St Catherine?s view which was just perfect as all on one level (handy for the little one) it had wonderful air conditioning which was a godsend as we were there in the heatwave. The apartment was exceptionally well equipped and clean and just perfect. The area and views were stunning and the hosts were really helpful from the day we booked as we had a few questions for them as it was the first time we had taken the girls away - they responded very quickly to all questions. The EV charging point is also a great addition and we have recommended to a few friends already and will definitely return. Great apartment and great hosts!
