‘Fossils Reach’ was a great, little place to stay - it is ideally located on the outskirts of Sandown, with a very short walk down to the beach. The holiday park itself was quiet and with a grassed area right outside our door, our toddler was safe letting off some steam.
The chalet itself was well equipped, with washing machine, fridge-freezer, oven, microwave, etc.. There was room for us to eat as a family and we could sit outside, if we wanted. The living area had two two-seater settees and a small tv, which was more than fine for us.
Diane and Ian made us feel very welcome...there was local fare for us and they left a puzzle book for our son, as well as putting dinosaur covers on his bed. There was even milk in the fridge so we could have a cuppa when we arrived.
We had a lovely break away, made by the accommodation. We are hoping to get back there soon.
Absolutely excellent stay in a 5* well equipped chalet. Welcome pack with local biscuits and information about the island was appreciated.
Fossil's Rest was well-equipped with everything we needed. Excellent chalet and location for dog walking. So peaceful and quiet. Easy access to Yaverland beach and the Bembridge Downs.
Ian and Di's knowledge of sites and attractions in the area was extremely helpful, and we would highly recommend Ian & Di's chalet and attention to detail.
Fabulous place to stay, the chalet was very clean and updated, had everything that we needed, welcome goodies were wonderful. Would recommend people to stay here
A group of old school friends stayed for the week end and made the most of the perfect location of this small, but well equipped holiday chalet. A quick walk down the hill to an excellent local restaurant, accompanied by the stunning sea views, and evening bird song, made for a magical first evening. Our base here allowed us to travel around the island by car to see the sights. The chalet itself is cosy, but has everything you need including wifi, and even a washing machine and iron, so it would be a good base for a family with small children.
Fossil's Reach is a beautiful, clean and well looked after chalet with thoughtful touches - welcome pack on arrival, milk in the fridge and even our dog was thought of, Diane and Ian provided her with a water bowl and mat. Soft throws are provided in each room, so you can snuggle up in the evening and relax with the local treats provided in the welcome pack.
We travelled with our two teenagers and they enjoyed their stay as much as we did, it was a fantastic few days break.
The location of the chalet is perfect, walking distance to Sandown and minutes from the beach. It makes an ideal base,to visit the whole island - The Needles, across the far West of the IOW is just a 50 minutes drive. There is a lovely one mile walk up the coastline from the Chalet up to the headland with the most amazing views, where there is a great pub, "Culver Haven Inn" serving generous and very good value meals.
Ian and Diane have thought of everything you need to make your stay at their chalet comfortable and memorable. They reply promptly when you contact them and assist you in any way they can..
Thank you Ian and Diane, hopefully we will see you again in the near future.
Within walking distance of Sandown, and less than five minutes from the beach.
Great Wi-Fi comfy beds with amazing memory foam pillows, plus the owners had left us a lovely gift basket.
Lovely and snug, would highly recommend to a couple or small family.
Great place to stay very well fitted out and clean bonus is the people who own it are lovely and nothing was to much trouble highly recommended if you can find better good luck
