My wife and I have just enjoyed a splendid week in 'Tradewind', an Isle of Wight holiday home run by very helpful and friendly hosts, Brian and Carol. 'Tradewind' is a detached bungalow in superb condition with the contents looking very new with excellent facilities. We particularly liked the conveniently-placed 7 kW wall charger. Excellent value and very highly recommended!
