Explore The Isle of Wight

Our Wightbayholidays chalets are situated within the well-known Sandown Bay Holiday Centre in Yaverland, at the far end of the major seaside holiday resort of Sandown on the popular south east coast of the Isle of Wight.

A Little About Us

Wightbayholidays was set up in late 2015 when Gillian and David completed the purchase of 2 lovely chalets, purchasing a 3rd in Spring 2016, within Sandown Bay Holiday Centre, a short stroll from the beach, the zoo and the centre of town. We added our 4th chalet in April 2021, giving lots of choice for our guests who return year after year, and those who holiday with us for the first time.

Having spent the most wonderful family holidays on the Isle of Wight for many years, we were both keen to share with potential visitors our love of the UK’s sunniest Island’s beautiful scenery, its clean, sandy beaches and its relaxed way of life.

We set about renovating the 4/6 person chalets to our own very high standards. All of our chalets have consistently been awarded the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence every year and receive ‘Excellent’ reviews on TripAdvisor.

    This is an excellent chalet fully equipped with all the creature comforts you would need for a relaxing holiday…The accommodation was spotlessly clean well laid out and comfortable. The view from this chalet over Sandown bay is just stunning. I’ve stayed at many chalets on this site over the years, this one has to be the best to date. Its a credit to Dave and Gillian to all the work that’s gone into making it a real home from home.

  • Highly recommended!

    We have stayed in several of the chalets in the area, but this was by far the best equipped and best presented one of all. Everything worked, (Including the wifi) there was everything we needed for a self catering week’s holiday, including comfortable beds and nice bed linen, and a aview of the sea from outside the front door was a bonus! The owners were super helpful before our visit, and David called by briefly to check all was well, which was appreciated. I wish we had had a sunny week, but it wasn’t to be this year, which made having such a cosy and homely chalet even more important as we were home more than usual. Thank you and a big well done to Gillian and David! PS You can hear the lions roaring along at the zoo, too!!

    We have just returned from an eight day stay at Sandown Bay Holiday Park. We hired one of Gillian and Dave Cotton’s chalet. It was absolutely lovely. Spotless, very comfortable and fully fitted. I would absolutely recommend these owners. Although the site has no amenities, that’s part of its attraction with wildlife and the sound of the sea. Also the closeness to the beach. All the Islands beaches are lovely, each having their own beauty. Go on, try the Isle of Wight, it’s my firm favourite.


  • Sandy Shores chalet, Yaverland, Isle of Wight

    Wonderful chalet, very clean and comfortable, with free WiFi, large tv, washing machine, fridge with freezer section, outdoor patio furniture, in fact everything you could possibly need for a relaxing stay. The owners are a friendly husband and wife team, happy to assist in any way and answer any questions you might have. We thoroughly enjoyed staying there for two weeks in June. My husband also stayed there for one week in May with his best friend who had never been to the Isle of Wight before. Needless to say he thought the island was amazing and the chalet superb. Highly recommended *****

  • Home from home

    We love staying in this chalet as it really is a home from home. Gillian and Dave have spared no expense when it comes to comfort and style. The welcome package is suitable for the whole family, up to date leaflets for places to visit on the island are provided and there is a range of activities within the chalet to keep the little guests entertained. Both Gillian and Dave are on hand should any problems occur or to advise on places of interest. Thank you for all you do for all of your guests.

  • A perfect Holiday retreat

    A very well-maintained chalet, with everything that you could possibly need for your stay. Communication from the owner Gillian was very attentive prior to our arrival & I had every confidence that the chalet would be of a high standard. We enjoyed the close proximity to the beach, the stunning scenery, quiet location of chalet & being able to walk into Sandown. The only down side was that we only booked for 4 nights & not a week! 🙂


  • Fantastic

    Brilliant place to stay when visiting the island the place was very clean and tidy and very welcoming also a lovely touch with a welcome pack awaiting us on arrival. Having arrived on the island earlier than expected Gillian went above and beyond to make sure we could check in early which we really appreciated, The chalet made our stay on the island a lot more memorable home from home and so much better than a hotel room. I will be using one of Gillians chalets on future visits to the island and will highly recommend my friends to do the same.

  • Lovely, clean and comfortable place

    We stayed in the chalet for 5 days. The place was very comfortable, clean and lovely decorated. We loved all the little details of the decor that made the chalet give its cosy atmosphere. All the amenities were there and we received a nice welcome pack from the owners. The location couldn’t be more perfect – just a few minutes walk to the lovely, sandy beaches of Sandown. In the evening we relaxed on the veranda watching our kids having a great time on the grassy area in front of the chalet. They were safe and happy, and so were we! We will definitely come back.

  • Our stay

    A chalet home from home everything you needed was available. Lovely seating area outside lots of jealous looks as we sat out on the decking. Short walk down the coastal path to the beach. Lovely relaxing time will hope to stay again in the future.
