  • "Accommodation very clean / bright & airy."

    Very well equipped Kitchen. Easy parking off road for 1 vehicle. Enclosed outside space, sunny south facing rear garden. Garden furniture a little "tired" but useable. Would return to property again, next time we are on the Island.

  • "The property was only couple minutes from a lovely little beach."

    Very clean and comfortable. Plenty of crockery, pans etc. bedrooms were glamorous, sheets etc were lovely and white, beds very comfortable, plenty of wardrobe space, plenty of hangers. I would say though if you use the twin bedded room you are unable to close the door. Bathroom again was very clean, towels were fluffy and white. Always plenty of hot water. I would highly recommend this property.

  • "Very good. As a family of 6 we would have like more cutlery so there was two sets each, a pair of scissors and another chopping knife, and another couple of toilet rolls and tea towels."

    The property was clean spacious with a lovely garden, in a great location, the beds were comfortable. It was really sunny on a couple of days despite only being the beginning of Easter. It would have been nice to have 6 outside chairs so we could all sit in the garden together.

  • "Missing a wheelie bin to put my rubbish in."

    And the iron didn’t work so we had to go out and buy one would’ve been nice if there was a mop there as well to clean the kitchen floor because the kitchen floor was very sticky when we arrived and there was a nappy in a nappy bag outside the front door maybe from the last people that were there but on the whole it was like the pictures and we had an amazing time in the house. Location was amazing less than a minute away from the sea and the beach

  • "The location of this house was excellent but our arrival was spoilt by having to wash up cups and saucepans before we could do anything."

    The kitchen is stocked with so much stuff it was difficult to know what was clean enough to use. We also had to vacuum the floor upon arrival and clean the dining table and chairs. The garden was unwelcoming and patio areas had not been swept in some time, and the furniture was very tatty.. We were unable to change the temperature on the shower, the sheets did not fit the mattresses and we were unable to log in to the WIFI on any device. We had a lovely holiday because we spent our time away from the house and enjoyed the Isle of Wight immensely.

    We take your feedback onboard and the cleaning company we use have been informed, including the linen which is outsourced. I am sorry you did not take the opportunity to have the cleaners return on the day of your arrival after I spoke to you. Wi-Fi has been checked and is working, password is in the welcome text and also on the back of the box. We endeavour to provide our guests with a home from home, guests usually enjoy our well equipped kitchen. We are happy you was able to enjoy the beautiful Isle of wight! Property Owner

  • "We had a fantastic stay at Chinefields."

    The house is lovely and so well equipped, just a perfect week. We were very lucky with the weather and the location is simply amazing. It was our first holiday with our ten month old baby and everything was so easy for him and, more importantly, for us! Having the travel cot and high chair in the house made everything really straightforward and he had a very happy stay. Such great walks in every direction and we couldn’t have had a better week. We’ll definitely be back.

    Thank you for your wonderful comments. so happy you enjoyed the house and its facilities. I hope your first holiday with your baby created special memories for you on this wonderful island. Hope you return soon! Property Owner

  • "We were very disappointed with the quality of cleaning, especially as we had been told we couldn't enter the property until 5p."

    M. because of the extra cleaning that would be needed due to Covid. We were led to understand that the fridge/freezer would be emptied so that we could put our own food in. The freezer was so frosted up you could hardly open the top draw, but even if it had been properly defrosted, we would have been unable to get a single item in, as it was packed full with the last guests food items. I don't think it was fair to assume that on my arrival, I would clear out the fridge/freezer. I have certainly never had to do this at any other cottage I have stayed in. There was also yoghurts and a half empty carton of juice in the quite grubby fridge. The dishwasher also had not been emptied. The information I received indicated that as a guest, I should make sure these things were sorted out before I left the property. I think the previous guests should have been more considerate, but as that wasn't the case, I would have expected the cleaners to have corrected it as part of the extra cleaning they were supposed to be doing.

    Thank you for your feedback. I am very sorry for your disappointment regarding food left in fridge/freezer, this must have been a rare oversight. Our cleaners usually work to a very high standard and would have rectified the situation immediately if they or I had been contacted. I hope it did not spoil your holiday in the beautiful Isle of Wight. Property Owner

    Really close to the beach which was lovely-quiet, sandy with interesting rock pools and clear water. Very friendly and communicative owner.

  • "Fantastic property, so clean and well prepared for holiday makers."

    Location was spot on enabling us to take kids to the beach and carry home cold and wet children and stick them straight in the bath. Garden is lovely and secure enabling kids to play happily. Kitchen is well equipped and lovely touch of welcome teabags etc; Beds are comfortable and plenty of storage for clothes. Only minor downside was the bedrooms are very light so if travelling with kids I’d suggest you take portable gro-anywhere blackout blinds to darken the room for bedtime. We walked to Alum Bay to visit the needles and it took around 90mins along the coastal path (with kids aged 2-6), also visiting the Hut for a meal is a must (but remember to book early).

The property

Chinefields is a stunning, semi-detached house nestled in the west of the Isle of Wight, where you can witness stunning sunsets.

Positioned just paces away from the beach and glistening waters of Colwell bay and Totland bay, you can enjoy the beach or go rambling through the scenic countryside.

This fine accommodation is ideal for a family or group of friends looking to explore a picturesque region of the island.

Relax and unwind in the sitting room, elegantly presented with cream sofas, plush carpet and plenty of natural light from the French doors.

The large kitchen with dining area includes useful cooking appliances and for coffee lovers a Nespresso machine.

There are three rather glamorous and spacious bedrooms on the first floor, perfect for taking yourself off for a quiet read or getting ready for an evening out.

The master bedroom at the front offers clean lines and coordinating colour schemes with bedside tables, lamps and ample storage space.

Next, the family room plays host to 2 spacious single beds and mirror-fronted wardrobes, whilst the twin room continues this stylish theme seamlessly.

Find the family bathroom at the end of the landing, brought together with cream, white and champagne-colour schemes uplifting your mood.

Indulge in a hot soak in the P-shaped bath tub or choose to wake up to a refreshing shower each morning.

Outside, make use of the sunny patio with a chilled drink or a warming cup of tea, while the kids play on the lawn.

Stroll into the village of Freshwater to find a selection of independent shops mixed with cafés, pubs and the West Wight Sports Centre.

Take a short stroll to The Hut, for a drink or bite to eat, enjoying the exceptional views of the coast.

Enjoy golfing at the renowned Freshwater Bay Golf Club and take in the glorious scenery of high chalk cliffs and sandy beaches that draw many tourists to the area time and again.

There is plenty of walking, cycling, horse riding (at Hill farm) close by and slightly further afield is Osbourne House, the former home of Queen Victoria, in East Cowes.

A splendid getaway for an enjoyable holiday the year-round.

About the location


Yarmouth 3 miles; Cowes 16 miles; Fishbourne 16 miles; Ryde 18 miles.

Freshwater is situated at the western tip of the Isle of Wight and consists of Freshwater Village and Freshwater Bay. Freshwater village offers a good selection of small independent shops, cafes and the West Wight Sports Centre and Indoor Swimming Pool. The magnificent high chalk cliffs, rolling downs and delightful beaches at Freshwater Bay and nearby Compton Bay attract many visitors and surfers all year round. The renowned Freshwater Bay Golf Club, which overlooks the English Channel has stunning coastal sea views from most tees and offers a superb day out for golfers of all abilities, whilst the area is a haven for birdwatchers, cyclists and walkers with many wonderful walks to be enjoyed not only on West Wight but across the entire Isle of Wight criss-crossing over a much varied island landscape. Locally, Afton Down (the location of the famous 1970 Isle of Wight Music Festival), and Tennyson Down are the most popular walks. At the foot of Tennyson Down is the Dimbola Museum and Photographic Galleries. The Needles Pleasure Park at Alum Bay with its coloured sand cliffs and chairlift to the beach is just south west of Freshwater, plus a little further afield on the north coast of the Isle of Wight is the premier yachting centre of Cowes. Osborne House (the former home of Queen Victoria) is located at East Cowes. The nearby Farringford Hotel on the edge of Freshwater Bay was once the home of the British Poet Laureate, Alfred Lord Tennyson, and many notable poets, authors and painters have been attracted to the area of West Wight over the years. With the seaside town of Yarmouth close by with its busy harbour and pier, shops, inns, eateries and impressive Tudor castle, this is an ideal base for an enjoyable holiday.
