Fab little campsite with beautiful views and great location. The entrance in can be easy to miss, so make sure you drive slowly.You'll need to anyway as it's a bendy/hilly road with some parked cars.

Very large pitches, some with electric, but on quite a slope, so go prepared. We had plenty to level the trailer, but had to make do to sort out the camp kitchen, and never had anything other than very wonky chairs

Sun sets slightly to the right of the pylon in the distance, just in case you like to sit out in the evenings.

Very friendly check in.Receptions on the left as you go round a sharp left hand turn. Limited supply of essentials, but to be honest I wasn't expecting any.So bit of a bonus.

Travellers Joy pub almost opposite the entrance, does very good main meals,excellent beers and nice pool table for 50p a go (just in case it's raining).

Shower/Loo block old, but always very clean. 3 showers & 3 loos for ladies (sorry, can't comment on gents but would expect the same). Nothing to dry your hands on though (other than loo roll) so take a towel or wave them about a bit. Proper taps in the showers, so no leaning on the button every 5 seconds. O/H & sons did have a problem with the showers as previously mentioned, but just took longer. I on the other hand, didn't, even though other cubicles were in use.

Under cover washing/washing up area was clean & tidy as well. Irons can be borrowed from reception and they have one washing machine and one spin dryer.

All in all an excellent basic site, very good value for money, with no one coming round shouting at you to get off by are certain time.I'll be back

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.
