Happy to agree with the previous positive reviews.

Position is not remote by any means, but a peaceful location set in an attractive fold in the ground. Pitching area is one large space, gently sloping, and quite sheltered.

As previously mentioned, facilities block remains dated, but well maintained and quite functional.

If you enjoy real ale, one additional point worthy of note is that the Travellers Joy pub, which is only about 100m from site entrance, has just been voted CAMRA IOW Pub of the Year.

One note on the ferries; donít worry if you are a little early or late for your booked sailing. Sailings are every 30 mins, and as long as you have a valid ticket, they will get you on the next available departure, and mostly, there is space.

Wow - I read the reviews and really hoped that it was as described. No fear at all. It is a beautiful campsite - set with lovely scenery. Not a slot machine in sight. Our 4 kids made lots of friends and played together from sunrise to sunset. We had electric hook-up and were situated round the edge of the field. Non - elec pitches were in the middle.

Loos and showers were basic - but worked just fine. We got a lovely pitch as we had a big tent - and the owner had set aside an end pitch for us. The beauty of IOW is that nowhere was actually that far away! We were on a tight budget, so went into the towns and found lovely bakeries etc. Useful tip - grab a free 'to do' guide whilst you are on the ferry across. We did at least 2 things every day - lots of them were free!

Will definitely go back there again - a wonderful holiday which the kids rated as their best ever! Friendly and back to basics. Just what we wanted!

What an absolutely delightful site. We stayed Whit Week, arriving on the Sunday. There were quite a few caravans there with the IOW DA when we arrived but they were only there for the weekend and were gone come Monday afternoon. That left about 4 occupied pitches spread out around 2 sides of a very large (sloping) field.

At £12.50 per night including electric it is a real bargain. As previously stated, the toilets / showers were very dated - but always very clean and in working order. What more do you need? It was so peaceful, with lovely scenery and the perfect place to relax. The owners were also very friendly.

I would not hesitate to use this site again in the future - but would avoid Cowes Week, as apparently it becomes very very busy at that time.

Stay away! No seriously. If everyone finds out about it we will not get to book there again.

Oh yes it is slopey and the facilities are a throw back to the sixties and yes the gents showers are cold when all your women folk are in the next block but what a great site.

We had a lovely 16 nights there and all it lacked for me was it not being next to the beach ( I do like to combine fishing and drinking). It is really well located on the northern central part of the island and really is a real family site. No club, just showers and bogs, no staff trying to prise tenners out of my hands for some tat that will be binned on the way home.

It is really laid back too which just allows you to soak up the island.

Travellers joy pub is a real pub with real beer, and super friendly and is not an eatery that sells beer (if you want that then the Sportsmans Rest in Porchfield does great food at a great price too, oh and good beer but just not the selection of the TJ).

We spent 11 days on this site and had a fantastic time. Yes the facilities are very old and basic but they were kept clean which to me is far more important. The field is uneven but if you have a good look around you will find a good enough spot.
It cost us just £9 a night for 2 adults and a dog, which for the time of year was fantastic. Great part of the isle with easy routes to all areas from the site. If we go back to the isle we would certainly go back here.

Reviewer: Wilsosd 9 reviews from this member

A delightful site that is a throw back to my childhood camping memories (with one major drawback) especially as our visit was booked to coincide with what is probably their busiest period Cowes Week.

Be prepared when you get to site as the field is sloping and actually slopes in 2 directions eg toward van side high to low and from rear of van to hitch high to low, take blocks for packing legs etc.

Facilities are very basic, and as stated above this is where the drawback comes in, the WC/Shower block is in dire need of a major overhaul, whilst functional they are really really dated and whether there is an issue with water pressure I don't know but the showers drip and are not very good to say the least.

That said the site is a fantastic touring base and allows easy access to the whole island, worth a visit if you have kids is Blackgang Chine, and Colwell bay for a nice beach which is probably 10 to 15 minutes away by car, (you may have parking issues).

Nearest big supermarket is Sainsburys in Newport approx 5 to 10 minutes by car.

With an upgrade to the facilities this site would be an absolute little gem to base yourself at and head out to explore the island, several good pubs locally (though had reservations about Traveller Joy looks run down but is a great real ale pub for all you CAMRA type people.

Just another little foot note Red Funnel are considerably cheaper for the ferry crossing than Wight Link and having done both crossings now would really recommend Red Funnel as our preferred ferry whilst a longer crossing if like us you have travelled a good distance to get to the island then the rest on the crossing is worth the extra time taken to arrive on the Island.
