Perfect CL

Alverstone Ponds
This is how a CL should be! Every pitch is hardstanding (good for a 7.5 motorhome) and each pitch has an EHU and a water tap. Paul and Chris were there when we arrived, really friendly couple who were there of we needed them but otherwise left us to our own devices. We were on the island to walk the coastal path and we did two chunks of the walk from Alverstone Ponds. It is about a 2 mile walk to get onto the coastal path, but we took that into consideration and also that we would need to walk back from the bus stop in Sandown. We also cycled into Cowes to visit family one day. The cycle path is just down the road from the campsite & is flat and generally in good condition. Alverstone Ponds is generally fully booked and I can understand why. It has shared toilets which were always clean. There’s also a metered washing machine. Fantastic stay.

Fantastic CL 5*

Alverstone Ponds
What a wonderful break we've just had at Alverstone Ponds Cl, Paul and Chris were excellent hosts and couldn't have been more helpful. The site is lovely with full service pitches and all very close to the local cycle and walking tracks. Toilet and washing facilities were spotless. Caravaning away from the mainland means you really feel you're away and on holiday and I can't think of a better place to stop over than Alveratone Ponds, thank you both.

A much needed break on a 5* site!

Alverstone Ponds
We have had THE best week away....perfect camp site, perfect hosts, perfect weather & perfect location! Everything was just so relaxed & easy, no stress, just what we needed in these strange times. The covid guidelines were in place & adhered to. The shared facilities were kept spotless & were sanitised regularly. There were plenty of places to walk and visit nearby, we will have to return as we only managed to see a couple. Several beautiful beaches were within easy reach including three designated 'dog beaches' at Yaverland, Bembridge & Shanklin.

Wonderful site

Alverstone Ponds
We have just got back from two wonderful weeks at this enchanting site. Lovely friendly owners. Facilities were excellent and location outstanding. We had multichoices of which footpath to walk the dogs, located on a quiet lane surrounded by mature trees and shrubs, a must to go back again.

excellent value for money

Alverstone Ponds
Our first visit to the Isle of Wight, so our first visit to this CL - what a gem, lovely serviced h/s pitch with an adjoining garden area with bench set, and free wifi, all for £15 per night. There is a small toilet/washroom, laundry facilities and information hut which includes book/dvd loan. Small dog walk, which is sufficient for first/last night constitutional as just a 5 min walk from the site brings you to the Red Squirrel trail, a level tarmac walk on a former railway line. Turn left at the former Railway cottage and a 2 mile walk brings you to either the pub or The Garlic Farm, turn right onto the trail and its 2 miles to Sandown, perfect for the dogs for off lead walking and cycling. The down sides are - no pubs or shops closer than 2 miles so location maybe more suited to car & caravan unless you like taking the motorhome out (we dont) bearing in mind the approach road to the site is not wide, very undulating and not many passing places, or walk/cycle. We found the pitches fine but our particular pitch (Dogwood, in the corner) may have been a bit tight to get a full size caravan awning up, and finally, it would be good to have a tensioner on the door exiting the site to the lane/lake as several times we were disturbed in the mornings by others going through it and just letting it slam behind them, our pitch was adjacent to this door
