A beautiful bungalow

As it has been another hot day today, reminiscent of late July weather, and as it isn't officially Autumn until later this week, I thought that right now is the last chance to talk about my summer holiday. I shared some snapshots of the Isle of Wight here and I now want to show some pictures of where I stayed.

I booked a bungalow on a 1960's built small holiday park through Vintage Vacations. It is located about 20 minutes walk outside Ventnor. I can't see the bungalow on their website at the moment, I hope that doesn't mean that they no longer own it. Vintage Vacations own several holiday properties on the island, all of which look interesting, and they have a field of Airstream caravans (which might need to be another holiday!).

The bungalow doesn't look like all that much from the outside, but inside it is decorated in a blend of vintage/retro/secondhand/granny chic splendour. I just loved it! I somehow neglected to photograph the bathroom or the third bedroom but here are all the best bits!

You enter straight into the lounge.

The sofas are covered in a patchwork of old fabrics and are so very comfortable.

This is on the other side of the front door.

Retro phone!

Cosy spot and a place to eat.

Pretty little details.

Looking through to the kitchen.

Fantastic 1950's style kitchen units. I think one was original and the others reproduction.

Wall cabinet in the kitchen.

In the main bedroom.

Great curtains.

Dressing table companion!

The second bedroom.

More great fabrics.

Very smart dressing table!

Decorative touches.

The outside. A little shabby around the edges and not much hint of the fabulousness within! Happy memories! It was a really super holiday home.
