Holiday Rental House
Fossils Rest is a two bed, 3 person chalet in a peaceful location on the cliffs above Sandown Bay with views across neighbouring farmland. It is a partner to our nearby chalet 'Fossils Reach'. Fossils Rest has a double and a single bedroom, is pet friendly, and has free wifi and electricity. It is intentionally minimalistic, emphasising comfort and space to provide a quiet spot to get away from it all. We have recently refurbished Fossils Rest so that we now have a large living area including space saver kitchen appliances, a bathroom with a large shower cubicle, and tiled floors throughout. Our beds are large and comfortable, and all bed linen is provided. We also provide tea coffee milk and sugar for your arrival, together with a welcome pack of local produce....Fossils Rest is a two bed, 3 person chalet in a peaceful location on the cliffs above Sandown Bay with views across neighbouring farmland.

The chalet is in a holiday park on a clifftop at the edge of Sandown. Two or three minutes in the car and you are in the town centre. The chalet is very well-appointed with a newly fitted kitchen with fan oven, ceramic hob and...More

Di and Ian have obviously worked very hard to create a real home from home that is truly delightful in every way, from the welcome pack to the comfy bed! The chalet is fully equipped so just turn up and enjoy. We did.

About the neighbourhood
This is absolutely beautiful. Our chalets are a part of one of the Isle of Wight's great views. There's just a short walk to the cliff top from Fossils Rest, and the view of Sandown Bay opens before your eyes.From Culver Cliffs to the East to Sandown and Shanklin to the South. We love it here! From the chalet front door you look out onto the open farmland of Yaverland Manor, (and there are currently longhorn cattle in the adjacent field).
Getting around
Whilst it's best to have your car available, there are stunning walks and cycle rides here. The Isle of Wight Coastal Path runs in front of the chalet site, and connects you with the whole of the Island's coast. Equally, there is a bus stop at the site entrance where buses connect to the Island's major towns.
