Holiday: Sandown, Isle of Wight in the fabulous Goldcrest self catering cottage for a long weekend, week or short break. In Sandown explore and enjoy the island experience without the hassle of foreign travel. Your seaside get away in England is our inspiration, so sit back, get ready to unwind – we’ve got it covered.

Sleeping up to six guests the bungalow accommodation comprises two double bedrooms, lounge with an additional sofa bed, kitchen, bathroom, private driveway parking for two cars, and a patio courtyard garden ideal for barbeques. We’ve thought of everything, so you’ll find the BBQ stored in the garden shed when you want to create culinary magic with some al fresco wining and dining on those warm summer evenings – no need to go out and buy those tiny disposable ones.

The self catering holiday cottage’s master bedroom features two single beds that can also be set up as one super king size six-foot wide bed giving you flexibility should you need a twin room or a double. Just let us know which you’d prefer after booking your holiday. Sandown, Isle of Wight is our home town, so even last minute adjustments can be made if you need them as we’re close by to provide excellent customer service. The second bedroom has a standard 4’ 6” double bed, and the sofa bed in the lounge is a three seater which gives a 4’ 6” wide double bed – standard sofa beds are only four feet wide, but that extra six inches really make a difference to a great night’s sleep. We’ve also chosen the best sofa bed mattress too, which is pocket sprung for extra comfort rather than just the thinner standard spring. If you’re comparing holiday accommodation, it’s well worth checking these types of points because a restful comfortable sleep gives you the energy to have a fantastic and memorable stay on the Isle of Wight. We want you to come back, so we provide a home away from home to enjoy.

Location to amenities is key when it comes to choosing a holiday venue, and Goldcrest cottage delivers. Tesco Express is only a couple of minutes stroll, where, should you choose not to fry up a full English in the contemporary kitchen, you can find fresh croissants and cappuccino to surprise your loved one with breakfast in bed. When you nip around the corner to Tesco’s to stock up, you’ll notice that Sandown road has bus stops to explore the island via all the main bus routes should you fancy leaving the car behind to really relax. Island Rover tickets can be purchased on board that let you roam free, getting on and off anywhere you want to explore. Closer to home, Sandown, Lake, and Shanklin all have beaches, and the cliff path joins all three where you can breathe in stunning views and breathe out daily stresses to give you an inspiring holiday. Sandown Isle of Wight walking maps are provided in your welcome folder so that you can go and explore the area with confidence when you fancy a stroll to the cliff path or want to venture down to the promenade to find the water sports facilities on Lake beach.

Goldcrest cottage is close to plenty of take-aways including a fish and chip shop, two Chinese's, an Indian takeaway and restaurant, and one selling pizzas and burgers. Venturing up Newport Road in Hale Common, you’ll find The Fighting Cocks which is a large family friendly pub and restaurant with free parking. KFC, Aldi and Morrisons supermarkets can also be found along Newport Road in Lake, and are marked on your welcome map for easy access.

If you’re coming over without a car, Sandown, Lake and Shanklin have their own train stations for easy access across the island - disembark at Lake railway station for the quickest route to Goldcrest as Sandown station is a couple more minutes along the track. If you fly in by light aircraft or gyrocopter (lucky you), Lake is home to Sandown airfield which is further along the Newport road on the right hand side past Morrisons, so Goldcrest cottage is just a 10-15 minute walk or five minutes by bus or taxi from there. The airfield hosts loads of events all season including music and BBQs, cycle races, fun runs, car boot sales, classic car shows and offers free car parking. It also houses the aircraft museum and giant rocket from the island’s space race days. Among a multitude of local attractions to choose from on the isle, particularly close to the bungalow include Los Altos park, the Roman Villa, Robin Hill Country Park which is an 88-acre outdoor adventure site that also puts on major events all year, the Garlic Farm and their separate Garlic Festival site as well as the Wildheart Animal Sanctuary, Sandown Pier, Amazon World and just a short distance away (approx 2 miles) from Shanklin Chine and old village.

Facilities in the self catering cottage include a washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, full sized oven, fridge freezer and microwave to make the best experience of those little chores that still need doing on holiday.
