The Bungalow is situated on the coast in the Linstone Chine Holiday Village and benefits from its beautiful location and extensive grounds which incorporates a new children’s play area as well as a fitness trail, mini golf and pitch & putt. With amazing sea and country views Driftwood Heart is an excellent base to visit the Islands' many attractions. Driftwood Heart Bungalow itself has been recently redecorated and tastefully furnished giving it a relaxing coastal atmosphere with the driftwood heart that inspires it hanging in the lounge area. All the rooms are heated by efficient electric radiators and the bedrooms and lounge have laminate wood flooring ensuring the best for cleanliness and hygiene. The bedrooms have been furnished with white wood furniture with coastal accessories and beds that have memory foam topped mattresses to provide an excellent nights’ sleep. The Bungalow has its own Fibre Broadband with WIFI which is free for our guests to use and there is also Sky satellite entertainment TV, Freeview TV complete with DVD player and a selection of DVD's to watch. You will also find a retro style Bluetooth record player that you can stream music to from your own phone and for a bit of fun there are a few 45rpm singles to play. If you don't won't to watch TV or listen to music then there are plenty of traditional family board and card games to play. I can highly recommend the Dobble card game which is fun for young children and adults! It looks easy to win but it is not. The kitchen is well equipped with all the essentials needed including a Tassimo coffee machine to make that perfect cup of coffee and not forgetting the Kew Gardens tea set for those of us who love a cup of tea and a piece of cake. Why not dine alfresco! Driftwood Heart Bungalow has its own patio area and picnic bench just outside the front entrance. Here you can take in the coastal atmosphere and fresh air while you eat and enjoy your favourite drink. And as dusk falls there is no better way to finish the perfect day than watch an amazing sunset over the Solent. The Bungalow is assessed annually by Visit England and has been awarded their 3 Star Self-Catering Rating. The report put Driftwood Heart high up in the 3 Star band. Being only a few minutes stroll from the Villages' own beach you can enjoy the sea anytime you like. When the tide is in watch the waves crash against the slipway and when its out you can play or walk along the long stretch of beach. If you walk in the direction of Colwell / Totland Bay then you will come across The Hut and Waterfront restaurants where you can enjoy a refreshing drink or a meal while you watch the boats and take in the amazing coastal views. In the Holliday Village there is a small shop to provide a few essentials for your holiday, milk, cereal, frozen foods etc. There is also a launderette next to the shop. Please note that the Holliday Village shop and launderette are not open in December & January. Behind the shop and the office there is a very large grassed area which is suitable for children and adults to play most outdoor games, tennis, badminton, football etc. There is also pitch and putt golf, mini golf, fitness trail and a children's play area. **We can now offer a 15% discount on Red Funnel Cary Ferry tickets when you book your stay at Driftwood Heart Bungalow.

About the neighbourhood
The Holiday Village is on the coast and faces out towards the Solent. There are beautiful sea and country views and the beach is only about five minutes walk away. The Isle of Wight Coastal Path runs along the coast by Brambles Chine Holiday Village. This path runs up to Fort Victoria Country Park where there are woodland walks and trails. You will also find the remains of Fort Victoria there that now house an Archaeological Discovery Centre, a Planetarium, a Reptile House, Model Railway and the Cafe Verdi. If you feel energetic then you can continue along the coastal path until you reach the Historic Port of Yarmouth. This port has a number of pubs and restaurants as well as boasting some of the islands oldest architecture.
Getting around
The best way to see the island is by car although there are buses run by Southern Vectis on route 7. Just google Southern Vectis, to reach their website for full information and timetables. The nearest bus stop is about half a mile from the Bungalow at Brambles Corner. If you want to forget the car you can walk along the Island's Coastal Path which runs by Brambles Chine Holiday Village. There is plenty to see and do but remember the path stretches a long way so plan your route and keep it manageable. You can walk east along the path towards Yarmouth or west towards Alum Bay and the Needles. For a detailed map of the Coastal Path just google Isle of Wight Coastal Path.
