Cottage Review:  

We had a lovely week in this great & well equipped house. We particularly enjoyed the lovely garden, comfortable lounge, the fabulous kitchen and the cool garden room.

Thanks to the owners for the milk, biscuits & starter pack that we found waiting for us on arrival - all very helpful!

We visited lots of great places including?

The Garlic Farm,



Shanklin and Shanklin Chine,

Monkey Haven,

Osborne House,

West Wight Alpacas (Walk an Alpaca),

Alum Bay and Chair Lift,

The Needles,

Tolland Bay and Yarmouth.

All these places are recommended!

We also enjoyed great meals at the Red Lion (Steak & Ale pie especially good), delicious fish n chips from Rainbow Chippy (both of these places are within walking distance of Avalon).

A few things to be aware of if staying at Avalon.


The drive is steep (c 12 degrees uphill towards the house) you will need a reliable handbrake and a smallish car to be able to park on it safely. Our Captur just fitted - it is c 1.8m wide by just over 4.1m long. Anything longer than this would stick out onto the pavement. Larger cars will need to be parked elsewhere.

Rubbish and Recycling

You may want to check with owners for latest position but here?s our understanding following a conversation with the owner in July 2023. A cleaning company collects rubbish from the black wheelie bin only. Although you may find a green wheelie bin marked ?recycling? next to it, please ignore it and use only the black bin for all waste including anything potentially recycleable. To recycle anything such as glass, plastics, tins etc, you will need to find public facilities at supermarkets, car parks etc.


These are quite steep and the treads are quite shallow. If like me, you are over 6ft, you?ll probably need to duck to come down the stairs without hitting your head.

These 3 points are here really to help manage your expectations/planning. Avalon is lovely and quiet, well equipped and convenient in its location. Freshwater has a nice feel and there are some very interesting local shops. We would be happy to stay here again ourselves. We can recommend Avalon as a splendid place to stay for your holiday!

Cottage Review:  

My wife and I are just back from an enjoyable 1 week stay in this beautifully decorated house which is literally 1 minute?s walk from the local Co-op but has a quiet back garden, ideal for enjoying the sun, as we did on several days. Immediately on entering it felt right for us and our initial instincts were proved correct over a week dominated by scorching heat. The kitchen is well equipped and we ate in several times, enjoying the local fresh meat and fish and great pizzas. There is a lovely lounge, a sun room, a dining room we did not use as we ate outside or in the sun room. The rear king-sized bedroom was comfortable and the shower was really good. A large family or two couples might find the absence of a second loo rather inconvenient. The West Wight area is less touristy but has plenty of options for all ages, especially some lovely gardens and walks. If you stay, you will not be disappointed, but do not take a large car as the small steep drive only just had space for our Fiesta!
