Set in 26 acres, formerly an award-winning 8 bedroom guest house, Chale Bay Farm has been converted to provide three lovely self-catering holiday apartments plus stand-alone double bedroom and a shared Gym and Sauna as well as extensive lawns, gardens and a paddock. Chale Bay Farm has panoramic sea views to the Needles and the chalk cliffs of Tennyson Down, providing an idyllic and tranquil setting for your holiday, but at the same time is within easy reach of the whole Island and all of its attractions. The peaceful setting make us a perfect hideaway for romantic breaks and long weekends, - a special place to stay while you explore the numerous activities on the Isle of Wight or just relax. We welcome short breaks, family getaways and seaside holidays. Note that since 2018 we are no longer a Guest House and no longer serve breakfast - we only offer self-catering holiday apartments.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Gorgeous room, lovely location, great hosts! Had a few nights away and a wicked mini holiday and this property was perfect to stay over! Highly recommended! Works for families or couples, close to Black Gang chine and driving distance of a lot of places.

We have just returned from a brilliant 5 night stay at Chale Bay Farm. This is a hidden gem with stunning scenery and generous accommodation. We stayed in Purbeck (2 adults, 1 toddler) which was very spacious and well equipped. The owners have really thought of everything which makes it a really comfortable stay with a nice blend of traditional furnishings with some excellent technology. Our son loved the dinosaur at the entrance and seeing the goldfish every day on our way out. There is a brilliant family country pub a short walk down the road with good food and a kids playground which came in handy. I think the overall living space is larger than many alternatives which makes it perfect for both a small family holiday or a multi generational larger trip - an ideal base to explore the island. Most notable attractions are within a 15-20 drive and we personally liked the slightly quieter surroundings than other major towns. We will definitely be returning in the future - highly recommend.

We've just returned from a 5 night stay at Chale Bay Farm, in a beautiful and well equipped apartment. It was a great base to explore from, with the most stunning landscape all around you. We stayed in St Catherine's View which I think is the largest, with 2 separate bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen/diner/lounge area and a patio. The weather for our holiday was less than perfect, so it was really good to have the extra space as we spent longer indoors than we normally would. The apartment was clean & nicely furnished, the kitchen very well equipped with everything you need and the thoughtful hosts leave you with bits & bobs (including a fresh pint of milk) to get you settled. Shampoo/conditioner/soap in the bathrooms was a nice quality too. There's also a small gym and sauna on site for guest use, and a massive DVD library. The hosts live on site and are there if you need them but invisible if you don't - we definitely did need them, since we came in an electric car without a charging cable. Hugely grateful to Steve for loaning us his cable (twice) so we could use the charging point in the Farm car park. I'm not entirely sure what we would have done! We would love to come back to Isle of Wight one day, and would definitely stay here again - there really is nothing at all to pick fault with at Chale Bay Farm x

What a lovely place! We stayed in St Catherine’s View and were very impressed with the accommodation and location. The Owners were really responsive to the questions we asked and very attentive. The air conditioning in the apartment was a godsend as we stayed during the heatwave. The apartment was exceptionally clean and well equipped and so ideal with young children. Our granddaughters loved it and there was plenty of space, with fantastic views, for them to run around. The pub opposite was ideal to pop across to for a bite o eat. All in all an excellent place and we will definitely return. 😊

Fantastic farm, exceeded my expectations. Cleanest apartment I’ve ever stayed at - couldn’t find a single fault. One of the best stays I’ve ever had. An added bonus was the modernity of the apartment which also surprised me.

Very lovely property, very well maintained. Gorgeous views. Ample parking and very easy to check in and out. Would have been nice to have some loungers outside, and a sun shade or umbrella over the table, but otherwise nothing to fault at all!

My friends and I have stayed at Chale Bay for the past few years, and will continue to do so as long as they will welcome us! The rooms are spacious and well equipped for self catering. The views are stunning and it’s oh so peaceful. There is plenty of dedicated off road parking there too - enough to park a bus or 6! With current Covid restrictions in place, Steve and Charlotte continue to operate as normal as possible, although there are understandable changes made, such as an earlier check out and a later check in. This is to allow rooms to be adequately cleaned and sanitised between guests. If you don’t feel like cooking, the Wight Mouse opposite is heartily recommended, and there are other restaurants a short drive away. An amazing location we can’t wait to return to!

We stayed here in the Needles View cottage for a week. We were me and my 19 month old son and my parents. We also had the adjoining room for them and my son and I slept in the main cottage. It was fantastic! The rooms were spacious and really nicely decorated (though you could tell they were mid renovation) and the mezzanine bedroom was really great for my son to sleep in. The air con was great and I can imagine would have been so useful a few weeks before. The kitchen was well stocked with essential equipment. Only a couple of things to think about though if you are travelling with young children 1) the living / dining area is completely carpeted with new cream carpets. They are lovely, but you might want to take plastic sheet to put under any high chairs. My son isn't too messy but I would have been so worried had we not had that. 2) the travel cot only has the basic matress so you might want to bring another one so it is more comfortable. Other than that, great and we will come back for sure.

Thank you for our first review since we changed from a guest house to holiday apartments. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. The plastic sheet is a good idea - we will look to provide alongside high chairs. Other than the gardens that are still settling down since the new landscaping (which has been tricky since that came just ahead of almost two entire months with no rain), the rennovations are complete, though we chose to leave the woodwork in the rooms unaffected by the building work with woodstain as opposed to the more modern gloss white finish. I think based on your feedback we will turn the older bits white in the low season as it was't our intention to think it was unfinished!

Great location to explore the Isle of Wight for a weekend break. First class breakfast where you can also enjoy the beautiful sea views. Very helpful staff, our stay was seamless and very enjoyable. Rooms are very well appointed and comfortable.
