Reasons for trip

I visited this accommodation in February with my partner, and we had a two bedroom lodge.
Each lodge is self catering, has a parking space outside for ease of access. If you need a disabled lodge access is by ramp, and inside of each lodge is tastefully furnished, with plenty of room.
The main bedrooms have an en-suite, and there is an additional bathroom as well.
In addition to the main television there is one in each bedroom so that if you do want to chill in your room or if people want to watch different shows they can do.
In the lounge there’s a game station so should you be going with teenagers it’s something they will love!
You can choose a lodge with or without a hot tub.
On both occasions I have stayed I’ve chosen to have a hot tub, mainly because I find them fantastic for my back!
They are sunken into the decking around the lodge making them fairly easy to get in and out of.
My second visit was with a friend in September and we were in a 3 bedroom lodge so we had lots of room.
The kitchen area is great and fully equipped, there’s a dining table and chairs for eating at, washing machine and tumble dryer, as well as a dishwasher in some of them.
There are two resorts right next to each other, and there’s a lovely bar, restaurant and spa.
Dogs are allowed by the way.
The Isle of Wight itself has some fantastic places to visit, in fact so many I’ve booked to go back next year as there are still so much to see.
One I WOULD recommend is the steam railway. It’s worth booking First Class for an extra treat and make a stop off at the museum and cafe.
