  • "Excellent house, immaculate clean, well served with utensils and manicured garden."

    It is also well located, i.e. close by the quiet beach of St Helens where there is some aqua sports to hire.Would certainly return and recommend it.

  • "The bungalow was comfortable, clean and extremely well-equipped."

    Everything we could have needed was there. It was in a quiet area (although I should add that the trains weren't running, I'm not sure how much difference that would have made). The garden was a real bonus as we have a 3 year old and it was great for her to have that space. We also met the friendly neighbours out there! The location was great for us too as we don't have a car but the bus stop was 5 minutes away. I'm sure we'll return in the future!

  • "The bungalow was situated in the middle of a local authority estate."

    It had a generally “musty” smell. The bed in the main room was not particularly comfortable. The shower, supplied from a combi boiler was either a scalding dribble or a freezing deluge. The door to the twin bedroom would not close because one of the beds was in the way.

    I am sorry to read of the negative and unhelpful comments made after your stay at The Furlongs. The shower was checked the day of checkout left and it was working perfectly. The bungalow is situated on the edge of a local authority estate and backs onto marshland. One of the single beds just had to be slightly moved to enable the door to the twin bedroom to close perfectly. Property Owner

About the location

BRADING

Sandown 1.7 miles; Ryde 4 miles; Newport 8 miles.

A small historic rural town, steeped in history going back to the Stone Age, Brading is close to many attractions, from the 1900 year old Roman Villa, to the beautiful Nunwell House, which hosted Charles I on his last night of freedom. Around Brading there are 70 footpaths taking in the beauty of the marshlands and its amazing bird life, stretching to the Downs, which lie within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Brading also offers three welcoming pubs which serve food daily, a professional international auction room, with one to two auctions every month, specializing in fine art antiques and modern and vintage wares. Just outside the town you will find Adgestone Vineyard, which is set on the south facing slope overlooked by Brading Down, where it is believed the vines were originally planted by the Romans; its award-winning wine was chosen in 1994 for the dinner for the Queen to celebrate the anniversary of the D-Day Landings. Brading is also perfectly located for many of the Islands beaches, with the sands of Sandown and Yaverland only 1.7 miles away and the rock pools of Bembridge beach 3.5 miles away.
