Amazing CL

Alverstone Ponds
Pitched 10 days and without any doubt one of the best CLs available. Nice welcome from Paul & Chris who pointed out all the facilities. Water, grey waste, EHU and picnic bench on every pitch. Spotless toilets and laundry. Well spaced level pitches in a beautiful setting. Fished 4 times and had lots of good sized quality carp every session. Lots to see and visit in the local area, it's worth buying the rover bus pass to get around the island. Sandown railway station offers all day parking for £2.20. It's difficult to find anything to criticise except the price is far too cheap and Paul will also get you a huge discount on ferry fares. What's not to like....

Fantastic Owners

Alverstone Ponds
We have just had 5 nights at this delightful CL. We had a fabulous greeting from the owners, who were extremely helpful. We were unsure how long we needed the pitch for, but being November the owners were able to allow us flexibility which we greatly appreciated. We want to return and visit the lakes etc. We loved seeing their pet goats and the sheep, plus the chickens. Paying for the faster WiFi of just £5 for the week was well worth it, but the free Wifi worked well enough if you just wanted to check e mails etc. Would I recommend this CL, definately!

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.
