Why stay here ...

Family fun, dog friendly & beautiful beaches at Southlands

Situated on the outskirts of the small village of Newchurch in the beautiful Arreton Valley, Southland Club Site is a great location to enjoy your holiday. Half the island is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there are over 120 attractions and places of interest for you and your family to visit.

Southland Club Site is a great choice for an Isle of Wight caravan park. It has flat, level, well drained meadowland pitches as well as a large playground and play areas. Trees and shrubs punctuate the site layout, giving a peaceful feeling of privacy. The caravan park is convenient for all parts of the island, and within easy reach of some of the finest beaches.

The island has an excellent bus transport system and you can catch buses from the Isle of Wight Zoo which frequently run into Sandown and Newport. Sandown and Shanklin are only 3 miles by road and both of these towns share the same sheltered bay with its sandy beaches and safe bathing, perfect for families. Newchurch village with its charming Norman church is five minutes on foot and there you will also find a pleasant country inn serving fresh, hearty food.

The garlic farm, a short distance from the site, is said to make the best coffee on the island. Slightly further afield there are loads of fun activities available including sea and freshwater fishing, golf, tennis, squash, swimming, horse riding, windsurfing, sailing and more. The information room at the site offers plenty more ideas for getting out and about in the local area.

Good clean site

Very well run site run by a lovely very helpful couple who even gave us some of their milk when we had run out and did n't want payment.Toilet block was kept very clean and site was quiet partly as some pitches were being renovated.Excellent food at the Pointer Inn but need to book. Very impressed especially as we stayed at a more expensive site on the island where the shower and toilet block leaves a lot to be desired.

Super site on the Isle of Wight.

This is a lovely site which is beautifully maintained. Having read some negative reviews I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was very quiet and peaceful. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There is a nice dog walking area where you can let your dog off the lead and 2 dog areas for a doggie toilet stop. We had no problems with access to the toilet block. When I used the facilities, there was never anyone else there. The whole thing felt very Covid safe. It is less than 10 minutes walk to The Pointer Inn which does very good food. You will have to book as it tends to get quite busy. The site is well situated for exploring this very lovely Island. We really enjoyed our visit to Osborne House and the drive from Ventnor to Freshwater is stunning. Thank you Southland for a lovely stay, we will be back.

Another lovely time at Southland

We have been staying here for the last 11 years , sometimes twice a year as we have family living on the lovely Isle of Wight. During this time we have found this site to be spotlessly clean , the shower block tidy and plenty of hot water. Martin and Janet do a fantastic job of running this site and will be a very hard act to follow when they move on at the end of this season. We would like to thank them both for all their help over the years and for being there for their guests . The site has many large trees and bushes and is maintained in an excellent condition by carefully ensuring that the grass is cut regularly and the trees and bushes maintained in shape. We will be very sorry to see you go and wish you the best of luck with your new site. I am sure we will meet agin. Michael and Jill and Webley Allam

A well-run site

Just returned from a 10 day stay at Southland. The site wardens are all very welcoming, helpful and enthusiastic - which is no mean feat in these challenging Covid19 times. The grounds and facilities are well maintained but this does lead to a lot of activity during the day involving mini-tractors and ground maintenance equipment. I would suggest that it is probably a good idea to plan a full day’s activity off site if you are likely to find the noise disturbing. WC/shower blocks were kept clean and felt safe to use. Personally, we found the system of bands in Milton solution worked reasonably well except when users forgot to return them to the bin after visiting the facilities. The restriction on the number of users to 6 at any one time felt a little too strict but I appreciate that the Club and its resident staff need to exercise caution and manage risks as they feel appropriate. I would very happily recommend a stay here.

Not as good as before

We have stayed here many times and always enjoyed our stay, however this was an exception. We were parked next to one of the wardens and they seemed to have family staying with them who were very noisy until late at night, I understand the reason for the noise, but.... The wristband system did not work, many a time there were wristbands in the bucket, but no one in the toilets, also didn't like having to submerse my hand in the bucket, the wristbands on hooks used by other club sites is a better option. Also, cannot understand why some of the toilets and sinks are not in use due to Covid, when other business with smaller toilet blocks are able to keep them open, the risk is surely higher if we are all using the one sink? We are all aware and able to social distance as we have been doing this for months now
