Your gateway to the Isle of Wight

Escape from the pressures of mainland life to our unique self-catering holiday village, situated along a narrow country lane (resurfaced last year) in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the picturesque west coast of the Isle of Wight. It serves as a great base to explore all the island has to offer and is ideal for walkers, cyclists and families alike. 'Beware', once on the ferry you may never go back to your old life because its just like coming home. Even in peak season there are no coaches on the quiet roads, they call it The Garden Isle for good reason, and we are now officially a Biospere Reserve, and renowned for our Dark Skies to watch the stars. 

 

All cottages on this landscaped 37-acre Linstone Chine Holiday village are privately owned. Some as second homes while others offer affordable holiday lets to individuals, couples, families, and groups of friends. 

 

Brambles Chine Holidays offer three self-catering holiday cottages for hire, on the Brambles Chine section of the village. Each cottages combines modern facilities with a traditional seaside holiday to provide comfortable flexible accommodation.

 

BAYVIEW and SEAVIEW are two doors away from each other, in the same back row of six, making them ideal for two families holidaying together. They both feature uninterrupted views across the playing field to the sea, allowing children to play in full view while you relax in the sun.

Onsite Activities

Childrens playground

Fully fenced with safety mats. Swings for all ages. Stepping posts. Creative climbing frame with slide.

Golf

9-hole fun golf overlooking beach. Crazy golf for the children, plus a further Pitch-n-putt course.

Large playing field

Fun for all ages. Grass tennis court. Full size football pitch, or just simply fly your kite. 

Trim trail

A trim trail runs through the pathways of a rough field full of Gorse bushes and rabbits.

The village has  a split-personality, depending on the time of year

In the school holidays Brambles Chine is a great place for children to make new friends, while on the playing field in full view of their parents, and without the danger of meeting cars. Many parents find their children are gone all day, and arrive back only when hungry.

 

Out of season the site becomes a quiet and peaceful spot, ideal for walkers, bird watchers. Kite surfers and hang glider enthusiasts find it an ideal place to stay as its only a few minutes drive away from Compton downs and it's surfing beach. Motor cycle, scooter, and sports car groups often arrange rallies to parade around the island. Chase the boats each June in the 'Round the Island Yacht Race' as they pass our site. Out come the spinnakers at the Needles, and you can take great action photographs as they tack into Compton bay. Power boat racing and`Cowes week add highlights to watch, plus spectacular displays from the Red Arrows, while boating interest continues throughout the year.

 

Anyone interested in fossils and dinosaur bones will find uninterrupted access to our Jurassic coast line. Children must be warned however about the cliff edge at Brambles, which is unfenced by the golf course. The cliff is not very high and made of crumbling clay. As a Site of Special Scientific Interest it is allowed to erode naturally to allow the bones of dinosaurs and ammonites to appear. There are a couple of patches of blue slipper clay by the far beach which must be avoided if it has been very wet, but these are the problems associated with a natural beach. 

 

Alum bay at the end of a long days ramble

For an old fashioned seaside holiday feel

Walk along the sand to Colwell Bay, with its clear, calm water, gently sloping sand and shingle. Ideal for swimming, boat and paddle board hire, alongside modern café, restaurants and a bar.

 

Through the Country Park towards Yarmouth

Walk or cycle up Monks Lane towards Cliff End and take the coastal path through Fort Victoria Country Park, then on via harbour ferry or road into Yarmouth. 

Local beeches

Walk or cycle along the sea wall from Colwell Bay and discover Totland Bay. Then for the fit a walk up and over National Trust’s Headon Warren for the view. Down into Alum Bay amusements, cafe, and the Needles Battery. Search for seals basking on the rocks behind the battery or take in the stunning views as you walk via Tennyson Downs back to Freshwater Bay. There is a good regular bus service back from anywhere you choose to end your day, or take an open top bus hop-on/off tour of the island.

 

Countryside

The holiday village is surrounded by numerous footpaths and wide open countryside views. Walk through the woods of Fort Victoria country park towards Yarmouth, to find wild beaches, Planetarium, Aquarium and beach side cafe’s. Golden Hill country park is inland the other way towards Yarmouth, and an excellent cycle route along the old railway line.

 

A short drive away, in West Wight, you can enjoy walking with West Wight Alpacas, Newtown Estuary, Calbourne Mill and many cycle routes. Surfers and kite surfing enthusiasts will enjoy Compton Bay, it’s also a great place to go fossil hunting and see the dinosaur footprints at low tide. Tapnell Farm Park is also local and great fun for a family day out.

 

Further afield is Carisbrooke Castle, Robin Hill, the Dinosaur Museum, Osborne House, Ventnor Botanical Gardens, the Pearl Centre or the sailing towns of Yarmouth and Cowes. Whatever you decide, one thing’s for sure the Isle of Wight has plenty to offer. Beach ½ mile. Shop 1 mile, pub ¾ mile and restaurant 1 mile.

 

The most beautiful spot on earth is here.
