About Gurnard Pines Bungalow

Maintained to a high standard, with modern kitchen, bathroom and gas central heating. The front door opens into an open plan living room with sitting, dining and kitchen areas. An inner lobby leads into the bathroom and both bedrooms. The twin has two small singles and a wardrobe. The double has a standard double bed, cabinet, wardrobe and chest of drawers. There is a small sofa bed in the living room.
The bungalow fronts onto a large green area which is ideal for children to play on while you can still keep an eye on them. Alternatively you may wish to sit on the patio and watch the world go by. There are usually ducks looking for a crumb and you may be fortunate enough to see a red squirrel or a woodpecker. Gurnard Pines has its own woodland walk and we like to take some crumbs for the ducks on the lake.
There is space to park two cars to the rear of the property. Please note that gas and water are included in the price, however electricity must be purchased on a card meter - a family of 4 may expect to use around £10 in a week.
Gurnard pines is a great holiday park for families and couples alike. On-site facilities include 25 metre indoor pool, heated outdoor swimming pools (Whitsun - end of August), tennis courts, a fitness suite, ‘Monkey Mansion’ softplay area (see photo), brasserie and bar. There is also an outdoor play area onsite, (see photo).
A number of the on-site facilities, including the swimming pools, require a pass to use them. Passes can be purchased at reception on arrival. A 7 day pass is £21 for adults and £15 for 4-16 years olds. A 4 day pass is £16 for adults and £12 for 4-16 year olds. Under 4s are free. These are current prices in 2012.
Gurnard itself has a couple of good traditional pubs, beach cafes and a lovely seafront play park, within a mile of Gurnard Pines. A stroll along the promenade to Cowes will take around 45 minutes and all the while you can take in the world class views of the Solent.
As well as the many beautiful island beaches, there is a huge variety of attractions on the island, some of our favourites are:
Carisbrooke Castle
Blackgang Chine (Theme Park)
Isle of Wight Steam Railway
Osborne House - (Island home of Queen Victoria)
Dinosaur Isle - interactive dinosaur museum
