Just returned fro our first trip to Short Ferry and it will not be our last !
On arrival we were given a plan of the site, along with key for the showers and toilet(£5 deposit). The site is larger than we were expecting, but it is so friendly. The pitch was very large and level. There are 2 rivers and 5 lakes/ponds for fishing, the carp lake is stuffed full with fish.
The toilets and showers are set in 2 blocks back to back, the ones facing towards the lakes are definitely the better ones. The Pub and entertainment rooms are very nice too.
There is an outdoor swimming pool, with 2 pools, one which is just for the kids. These are being updated for next year, (what we were told anyway). I would recommend this for anyone that likes fishing, or those with kids, or people that just want a quiet time, In fact it is a site for everyone.
We went here as it wasn't to far from home and it was the last weekend before kids going back to school.
On arrival staff friendly and explained all we needed to know.
we were on 49 and 50 pitch as we had two caravans in our party, in total four adults and one child.
It was a perfect spot as it was 1mins to the shower block, 2mins to the fishing pond and 5mins to the pool, bar and shop walking.
Plenty of kids, my son is 9yrs and made friends straight away.
We paid £32 for a weekend and the only other thing we had to pay for was £5 for fishing but you can fish all day and you have to use there keep nets. My husband caught the most he had ever caught and the biggest.
It was beautiful weather so we went to the heated swimming pool my son loved it, it was a little cold but even I took the pludge and used it all weekend.
The pub on site had everything, good food, kids play room, teenage area and entertainment suite which had bingo and live acts.
Will be going to this site when ever we get a free weekend.
Visited this site August bank holiday weekend and had a fantastic time.
Entertainment all weekend. Charity race night Friday, entertainer Saturday night, 3 live acts on the front pub garden Sunday, disco and even a pool party all of which was free. Really family friendly site and could even take the dog at no extra charge!
Would recommend this site to everyone especially families
Cant wait to visit again in October for there end of season Halloween party.
We have been to this site several times for a weekend, son, husband, dad and brother are all keen on fishing so ideal for them. The showers / toilets are dated but we have always found them clean, the man cleans them twice a day with lots of bleach, some people that use the site may be to blame as I have seen toilet paper pulled off the roll & left trailing the floor and a used "item" in the ladies left on the floor by the toilet when bins are provided. Ast time we went the swimming pool was closed as it was being re done. Good play area for younger kids and nice pub/club on site for older kids.
We have just spent 6 nights at Short Ferry and had a great time, although the showers & toilets could have done with a right good clean! There was only one washing up sink, and again, this could have done with a clean as the walls were covered in dead spiders & flies! I played bingo on friday night in the club, it started at 7.30 and finished at 9.30. There were 8 games in total, and each ticket is 20p and you can just play 1 game, or all 8! The prize money was worth winning, £5, £10 or £20 for a line and a full house was anything up to £130. Karaoke & a kids disco followed the bingo. We also played skittles on the wednesday which the kids enjoyed! The Swimming pool was free, although a bit cold! The fishing is free or you can pay £3.50 a day for the carpe lake and you can't fail to catch in here! We would go here again, but just wish the shower /toilet block was abit better!
