 Please note the Camping and Caravanning Club advised us that this site is now permanently closed, and no longer offers camping, motorhome or caravanning pitches.

If you know that this situation has changed in the future, please could you let us know. Many thanks

 Had a good time here. Site is pretty basic, needs some modernisation, but everything seemed to work even if scruffy. Wasn't expensive tariff, so no quibbles.

Larger site but broken into lots of small chunks, so feels more intimate than it is. Pitches pretty flat, and reasonably sized.

Wardens and staff all very friendly.

Outdoor pool a great success, kids wanted to go in a couple of times a day, and although quite small had loads of fun (who needs slides anyway!). Nice unique feature to this otherwise pretty ordinary site.

Good base for the IOW, although we did find trips to the Western end dragged a little after the first couple of times, so if planning to spend a lot of time there, maybe choose a site towards that end instead.

Access to cycle trail to Newport is very close to the site, which is great bonus too.

 Fantastic place, been here third time in a row now.

Easy access to the site and it is well maintained.

Staff are helpful and friendly.

Shame the shop and the pizza man isn't there anymore though 😕

 First the good - the site is generally well cared for by friendly helpful staff, grassy pitches with plenty of room and lots of water and electric points.

However - the toilet and shower blocks were very disappointing for a club site, tatty and in need of a good modernisation, lots of flies and cobwebs in dated cubicles. Also, be aware that there is no facility for emptying grey waste.

The surroundings - walk out of the site and down the lane to find footpaths taking you to the road into Sandown or bus stops to Ryde and Shanklin/Ventnor (we used the number 3).

The bus stop is about a 20 minute walk, the beach another ten minutes or so. We also walked along the esplanade to Shanklin which was flat and easy and took about an hour.

Will we return? To the Isle of Wight yes but to Adgestone and Sandown very doubtful.

 A very quiet, peaceful site on the outskirts of Sandown with very clean toilet facilities.

Seems to be grass only pitches and nearly got stuck after overnight rain on day of departure. Approach roads to site very narrow so care needs to be exercised.

Light aircraft passing overhead during the day were a slight nuisance.

Nothing much locally so need to drive or cycle/walk to get anywhere, no local pub or shop and buses were about a mile away.

Swimming pool was shut however we did receive prior notification of this.

 Nice welcome upon arrival after driving up very narrow access road, site does not really have any level pitches and is in poor condition generally.

Facility block is awful and not very clean so despite booking for 4 nights we left after 2 as not worth the risk in these times.

Moved up the road to another site with better facilities.

 Had a lovely stay at this C&CC site for a few nights with 2 tents. We were pitched on grass amongst caravans and tents. Our area had a nice feel to it. It had been raining prior to our visit so the wardens were doing their best to maintain the grass verges from tyre marks etc, with chippings being laid down to prevent too much mud everywhere. The facilities are good, with the main block struggling to cope perhaps with the amount of tent campers in the furthest camping areas. We used the other block as well, as we were located more in the middle area. This block serves more caravanners so it was less stressed. This also has family showers and washing up areas (of varying heights!). We were tent camping so didn't have the caravan. I wouldn't want to tow the route we took so I would take care to plan the route to avoid a last minute panic! We love the attention to detail with C&CC especially the play areas. My daughter loved the outdoor chess & noughts and crosses area but didn't really use the main play area much as it was very busy and perhaps a bit too far away from our pitch. All in all, a really great site.

 This was our fourth visit to Adgestone and it still remains our favourite campsite. The staff here are so hardworking, helpful and friendly trying their very best to make sure all campers have a pleasant stay. Unfortunately this time there were a few families who did not comply with safety rules making it difficult for the staff and fellow campers. This mainly related to not supervising their children at the poolside and allowing them to enter the fishing lakes unaccompanied where the water is deep. The facilities at the campsite are very good. The toilet blocks are regularly cleaned and the parks and pool keep the children entertained. The shop and takeaway are under new management. The takeaway was very busy and the staff were challenged in keeping up with orders. The stock in the shop maybe needed to be reviewed as it did not stock some of the essentials you forget or run out of e. G. Shampoo, shower gel and kitchen roll although it did have frozen Brussels sprouts! The campsite is well situated to visit all the island's attractions. There are some lovely beaches. Admission prices are reasonable and many places provide a return ticket valid for seven days. Going to the Isle of Wight is like a pleasant step back in time.

 Visited Adgestone for the first time and had a fantastic time the site was immaculate in a fantastic location near to cycle path and nature reserve. The heated swimming pool was great for the kids and the site wardens were friendly and knowledgeable giving great advice on days out and points of local interest. We will definitely be visiting again.

 Large site close to Lake & Sandown, so in easy reach of eastern beaches. Site is split into several fields all with electric. Toilet blocks are of an older style and are due a revamp. However, they are kept very clean and serviceable. Vans are pitched parallel to the roads rather than the normal right angles due to space available. Unusually for a club site there is an outdoor swimming pool on site. There is also an independently run shop and take away. Approach road to site is quite narrow, in fact only just wide enough for van to pass through, hedges need cutting back. Site team very helpful in every way.
