Welcome to WightBayHolidays

Welcome to our holiday chalets, located next to the coastal path and safe, sandy beaches. Our 4 self -catering holiday chalets are well equipped and decorated to a high standard in seaside style, with WiFi, free parking, and Smart TV’s.

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!

Frequently Asked Questions

A: Yes, there are designated car parking areas for chalet guests around the site, and you will be able to park near your chalet. If you have specific mobility issues and would like more details, please get in touch, we will be happy to help.

A: The coastal path runs alongside the site, and it takes around 5 mins to walk along the path to access the beach at Yaverland. If you drive, it takes less than a minute to Yaverland beach car park.

A: Yes, the no 8 bus runs right past the site – for details of this route and others on the Island, click here

A: Yes, we have one dog-friendly chalet, Ocean Decks, accepting 1 large or 2 smaller well-behaved dogs at an additional fee of £20 per dog per stay. Click here to find out more about Ocean Decks

A:  There is a café at Yaverland beach, 5 mins walk or a minute in the car. If you continue along the sea front towards Sandown, there is the Wildheart Sanctuary café (vegetarian) (you can use the café without having to pay the zoo entrance fee), Browns Golf and Blue Tiki Café, past the Dinosaur Museum, then on, past Sandham Gardens, to the Bandstand, Driftwood Beach Bar. To give you some idea of distance, the Driftwood is just under a mile from the site, and it is the beginning of the heart of Sandown, the Esplanade, Pier and High Street. Alternatively, if you turn left out of the site, and follow the coastal path, within about 15-20 mins of spectacular coastal scenery, you will reach Culver Haven Inn on the top of Culver Cliff (or 5 mins drive by road) with views for miles across the Solent and the English Channel. Check opening hours and times of serving food for all Island establishments and you may need to book a table to avoid disappointment.

A: No, electricity is included in the rental price in all our chalets. However, we can all do our bit for the planet, by turning off any lights, lowering or switching off heating etc when not needed. We, as owners, are contributing by provision of low-energy LED lighting and eco wall heaters.

A: All beds will be made up for you. However, we do not provide any bedding at all for the sofa bed, so please bring your own if you intend using this (duvet and cover/sleeping bag, bottom sheet, pillows and pillow cases). If you have requested use of a travel cot, we do not provide any bedding for this. We do not provide towels.

A: Yes we can provide these free of charge and subject to availability, please request these at time of booking. Please note that a travel cot does not fit in Bedroom 1 or Bedroom 2 in Seascape, so we recommend booking one of our other chalets if you would like to use a travel cot.
