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.

Ferries to the Isle of Wight

The ferry from Portsmouth to Fishbourne takes as little as 35 minutes, with crossings from Lymington and Southampton also on offer. To book any of these crossings, call our contact centre on 01342 316101.

Fabulous Few Days

What a beautiful site! We booked for three days, two campervans and Sid the dog. We were hoping to get two pitches together but were unable to on our first night however the lady with the blond hair went above and beyond the call of duty in helping us achieve it for our other two days. So helpful and I forgot to get her name!! The site itself is immaculate as are the facilities. Lots of information of whats on around and about. We preferred the grass pitches which had more privacy with lovely hedges surrounding them and Sid loved the dog walking area near the playground just a shame that other dog owners were not so respectful and left their dog mess for others to clear up!!! Will definitely return

Excellent site

Excellent site, we stayed in a hard standing pitch which was very roomy. As usual with CAMC, facilities were very clean. Staff very welcoming, we arrived earlier than the ‘arrival time’ due to unintentionally getting on earlier ferry. We were allowed to check in and pitch up, so that was a bonus! Pointer Inn and Fighting Cocks are both nearby and serve excellent food and ale. Plenty to see and do in area. Note: Red Squirrel Trail for cycling IS NOT family friendly, if with youngish children, as quite a bit of it is on busy roads with steep hills (some winding), the rest is on disused rail tracks and across fields etc All in all a great holiday and the site is a credit to the wardens who work really hard keeping it clean and tidy.

Super Southland

Well maintained site with nice big grass pitches and neat hedges. Some road noise can be heard if pitched next to road. Unfortunately not really able to walk out of site easily due to lack of paths. Village doesn't have many paths either and no shops only a pub. Though we did manage to walk to Sandown from out the back of the site and using the red squirrel trail. We also walked to the Garlic Farm and there is a great little plant nursery to walk to, turn left out of the site & left at the lane (not too much traffic!)

Beautiful site - some suggestions

This is a really lovely site in a beautiful part of the world- we had a really lovely holiday. I would just like to raise two issues - I was concerned that some people in addition to pitching a large awning then do a ‘land grab’ by constructing a fenced in area which covers as much area as the awning. I think in most cases this is probably to create a dog pen but as I seem to recall Club rules state that dogs should be on a lead - something we always respect when our dog is outside the awning. Secondly I would like to raise the issue of flags- there seems to be something of a competition going on to see who can erect the largest pole with some kind of flag/ mobile/ kite on top. I suspect there may be an issue of ‘flag envy’ going on with a my pole is bigger than your pole mentality. These flags are obtrusive and I suspect unwelcome by many Club members- I hope the Club bans these poles/flags
