This campsite is very well maintained, clean toilets and showers, good washing up and laundry facilities. Pitch was a great size and all the grounds were immaculate. We are a family of 4 with a dog. We like to play ball games like catch, swing ball and volley ball however, games were only aloud in the games field and dogs were not aloud in this field and you were strictly instructed to not leave dogs unattended at all, so we were unable to play all together. Also there was no atmosphere on the site! Not one family sat outside their tents chatting or socialising in the evening. Every night everyone was zipped up by 9. 30pm! A real shame as we love the camping outdoor relaxed atmosphere of most campsites, where laughter and chat can be heard into evening. The park wardens are very friendly but very strict, we looked at the island map by the shower block and was immediately asked to step back 2 meters because dogs were not aloud past a particular post! So this site deserves 8/10 for the facilities but 5/10 for atmosphere, the strict rules and lack of atmosphere was not for us!

This was going to be our last 2 weeks Holiday in our beloved Auto sleeper Duetto before we sold her. We had booked 3 sites for our visit to the IOW but when we received the welcome from the site wardens, and the site we were shown to, we soon changed our minds and cancelled the other sites. The facilities are very clean and a little organization cured the lack of space in the shower cubicles. The showers were always hot and powerful + free. The site itself is kept very well manicured and there is a generous portion given to you for your 'estate' for your stay. The WiFi was good value at 5 for duration of your stay, plus a good connection speed for BBC Iplayer etc. This is a 'David Bellamy' approved site so the flora & forna are brilliant. The wardens seemed to be always on hand to give helpful advice on where to shop, travel, visit etc. Thank you for a great Holiday.

This is a really nice campsite which we would return to and recommend to our friends. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We have a smallish tent and the pitch size is very generous. The toilet block was clean with free showers and hair dryer.

There is a bus stop outside the site which we used to get into Yarmouth most evenings.

There are no swings on site but a large field for ball games. A shop with papers would have been useful. There is a good selection of leaflets for local attractions.

We stayed here for a week in August. We booked our ferry via the campsite and got a slightly cheaper deal.

We had a premier view pitch which was spacious enough for our tent. I like the way that the site does not cram another row of pitches in so that there is a lot of space in the middle. The facilities were clean and enough for the site, my only downpoint is that the shower cubicles really are a bit too small, especially when you are trying to get changed.

The children really enjoyed the playing field and made other friends quickly. Everyone else seemed very friendly and many people we spoke to were on a revisit to the site. The wardens were very helpful and polite, they also had a small information kiosk where you could exchange books and magazines. There is no shop on site, however we booked a supermarket delivery which the wardens were happy to have deliver to pitch and there are supermarkets and a nice fish and chip shop (The Rainbow) 5 minutes away in Freshwater.

The site is a little further away from many of the attractions on the island but I think that lends to its quieter appeal and it doesn't take long to drive to sights on the other side. We visited Osbourne House with its beach, Yarmouth, Alum Bay, Bembridge and Sandown, but our absolute favourite day out was at Steephill Cove near Ventnor.

We would recommend this ite and plan to return someday.

This was our first proper camping holiday as a family, and I don't think we could have picked a better site to start with.

The wardens were friendly (strict, but friendly) and helpful.

Our pitch was spacious in length, though slightly narrow: we just squeezed into the pitch sideways (allowing for the obligatory 3m surround) as we have a wide tent - but easily parked our car in front of us, and could have fit a pup tent there too if required. Next time we'll go for a larger pitch.

There are good facilities which were really well maintained, the only slight problems were hot showers (lovely for adults but not great for small children), and the hairdryer in the ladies' was free but a bit feeble - taking me 5 minutes just to dry my bit of fringe. I didn't bother trying to dry the rest.

Washing-up/ veg prep/ laundry room was immaculate. I only had to queue once for the washing machine, and then only for 30mins - in peak season! (nb the washing machine costs 2 in 1coins, and the drier takes 50p pieces, costing us about 1. 50 to fully dry a large load)

Playing field was very spacious with football nets, basketball hoop and barbecues. Balls, bubbles, and buckets&spades can be purchased at reception (as can icecreams)

As well as the freezer-pack service (20p each pack) they offer a phone/ battery recharging service (1), which was invaluable when my camera battery ran out.

The site is very convenient for family trips to the Needles Park and the lovely sandy beach at Compton Bay (carpark free to National Trust members). We also recommend a visit to Robin Hill on the other side of the island (especially the evenings when the woods are lit up).

Overall, a lovely holiday based at a lovely peaceful site - I'm sure we'll be back.

Just returned from a week on the fabulous isle of wight. Great campsite. Very clean and well organised site. Ample pitch space. We have a very large tent and we had plenty of room to sit outside and park our car along the front of our pitch.

There is a playing field but no playground, which I think would benefit the site.

The only negative point I would have is that the site is a little 'military' but don't let this put you off as the rules are put in place for a reason.

Thank you for a lovely stay
