Longtail - Brading
3 Star Gold

Bright, spacious bungalow – lovely views, close to East coast
This very well appointed bungalow has everything for a perfect stay, and far reaching, wonderful countryside views. Located on the edge of the historic village of Brading, on the main road from Ryde to Shanklin and Ventnor, it is just 1 mile from the railway station and benefits from being on a main bus route with a stop just outside, which is also on the Island’s Breezer explorer bus route, from which the whole Island can be explored from the open-top buses that stop regularly at various collection points

Longtail offers a great base for exploring the seaside villages of the East – Ryde, Seaview, St Helens and Bembridge, with its picturesque harbour, are a short drive away, as is the vibrant seaside town of Sandown. Sandown has the perfect family beach with miles of golden sand and a traditional pier. A great selection of cafes and bars look out to sea, just across from the beach, and behind the beach front the town has a high street with a selection of shops and eateries. Bembridge also has lovely coastal walking and a great selection of independent shops and eateries

Nearby attractions including the popular Dinosaur Isle for all things Dinosaur fun, the Isle of Wight Zoo, Adgestone Vineyard and Amazon World Zoo Park. Sandown golf course, 2 miles away, is widely regarded as the best course on the Island

The island’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a short drive away and the stunning coastal scenery offers a varied choice for walkers, cyclists and for outdoor pursuits enthusiasts there is riding, fishing, cycling, water sports and golf

"What a perfect stay at Longtail! The owner very kindly set up a Christmas tree and even left us presents under the tree! The place was just great for us, with everything we needed to have a great base to stay and relax in, and also very safe for our little one to run around and have fun in. We would definitely return, it was a great week.

"The house is lovely and inviting. It's very close to beaches (Sandown is about 6 minutes by car), the town of Brading has some good restaurants, and most everything is a quick drive. The house itself is lovely and comfortable. We really appreciated the high chair and toddler bowls/cups/plates/cutlery, and we loved the back patio and back garden. There is a private driveway. Everything was set up thoughtfully and it was a great place to stay."

"The apartment is fantastic! The location, 1 mile away from the best beach on the Island is great! We liked the house so much! The beds were very comfortable, we loved the beds! The house is very neat and very clean. It could not be better in any way!"
