Why stay here ...

Borthwood Caravans is situated alongside Queen Bower Farm which is our small family run business set in a very rural part of our beautiful Island. The site itself is located in a large field which has a mixture of flat and slight sloped pitches and includes electric hook ups and space for awnings.

Borthwood with its fantastic surroundings, is perfect for dog walkers as it is adjacent to Borthwood Copse and surrounding foot paths. The Bower itself has views of the Island, so come and see for yourself. It is also in a great position for cyclists as nearby cycle paths runs through to Newport and Cowes. Close by is also Alverstone Mead, a 30 acre nature reserve in marshy splendour, beautifully kept and much loved by those who visit. Highland cattle graze upon it, water fowl swim and plenty of squirrels to admire. The nearby beaches are within easy reach and there is local horse riding to enjoy.

After a busy day you can unwind with onsite Holistic Treatments to ease those aching muscles (see our Facebook page) and then enjoy food at one of our nearby pubs, the Fighting Cocks or Pointers Inn. Fresh eggs are available during your stay.

For more information please visit our Borthwood Caravans Facebook page.

So glad we managed to get here

HOORAY, GOT HERE AT LAST. After the disappointment of lockdown, we eventually managed to get to this gem of a CL. Yes, it's fairly basic - just two toilets, a wash basin and electric hookup but if you are going to the Isle of Wight don't overlook this CL. It's very peaceful, the views are fantastic, the owners are brilliant and their dogs are so friendly! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and loved our stay. Thankyou Yasmin and Sean for having us - it was absolutely wonderful.

Highly Recommend

Review by Rae Winfiled who posted this on FB page . Fantastic place to stay. Loads of space. Only a few miles to shops and beaches but feels like your million miles away. So beautiful and peaceful. We booked for 2 nights but extended for another 9 nights we love it here so much. One afternoon the ice cream van came.. How cool is that! We were asked by Yasmin's daughter "what could we do to improve“. Honest we love it just the way it is 😊
