Nestling in beautiful surroundings above Yaverland beach, Sandown Bay Holiday Centre is perfect for families and couples who want to enjoy a relaxing self-catering holiday, yet be close to local amenities. A perfect base for exploring the Island – nowhere is far on the Isle of Wight.
Wightbayholidays is a small family business, established for more than 6 years by us, Gillian and Dave Cotton. We fell in love with the Isle of Wight many years ago and have many wonderful memories of our family holidays over the years. Sandown was always our favourite place on the Island. We moved here permanently with our 3 dogs in 2017 so we are always on hand if our guests need assistance or local information .
We look forward to welcoming you to stay!
