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.

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.

Weeks Holiday

We have stayed at Southlands on a number of times and really enjoy our stays. Greeted in a friendly and efficient way and given instructions on the new covid measures. At all times we felt secure and were happy with the band system for using the toilet and shower facilities. The site is in an ideal place to get around the island with lots to do. We were in the area whcih had the hard standings which some people thought it was okay to travel at speed, even though it was pointed out to us on arrival to stick to the speed limit.

Excellent site

Stayed at Southland Caravan Site for 5 nights from 9th September - 2 adults and a dog. Wardens very friendly and were happy to help when we had a snag with our electric hook-up - we now know to insert cable and twist! Facilities were spotless and the extra restrictions in place worked well. Only very small criticism is regarding dog walk as it is quite small especially as our dog loves to run free and chase a ball. We had to take him off site in our campervan everyday to find a place to walk him - no shortage of places for this on the lovely Isle of Wight. On the whole enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone wanting a quiet base from which to explore the Island.

Lovely site, beaches not close by

We stayed here for a week and had a great time. We walked and cycled from the site. We used the buses (free travel with English bus pass after 9.30) to go to the Needles and to Ryde. Bus journeys were quite lengthy but these were good days out. The Red Squirrel cycle trail was nearby but the loop from Shanklin is mainly off road and not very suitable for road bikes. There is a steep hill to climb in Newchurch! The two nearest pubs both served great food and welcomed dogs. The Pedallers cafe, and the Garlic farm, both within walking distance, also had great food and were very popular. The pitches were of varied sizes, some people did not have their awnings on the correct side and nobody seemed to bother about this. We were not impressed when a couple set up with their awning facing ours. Other people seemed to grab a lot of space for themselves with massive beach screens in addition to their awning. I have never seen this happening at any other club site. In fact, I have seen wardens being very strict elsewhere. The wardens were doing a great job clearing the paths and re- seeding the dry patches where ground sheets had been. They were very welcoming and pleasant. The dog walk was the best I have experienced at any Caravan club site. Our only grumble was that there was no local shop for basics and nothing available at the site due to covid restrictions.

We really enjoyed our stay at Southland. The site is very well maintained. The Wardens were super friendly. So much to do on the Island, we have already booked for 2021! Great dog walk area on the site. Thank you Southland for a lovely holiday!

The noisiest club site we’ve ever stayed on! How many machines??

Stayed for a week August bank holiday. Site is level with areas divided up and sheltered by tall well kept hedges. Too well kept. Well groomed grass. Too well groomed. Lots of bins. Too many bins. This was the problem really; never a moments peace from 0900 to 1700, when the wardens are out and about riding their tractor and trailer to service the bins, then riding the mower to mow individual pitches when folk have left and then using strimmers , hedge trimmers, leaf blowers and other noisy petrol powered machines throughout the remainder of the working day manicuring the site. And if the noise from the wardens wasn’t enough, the local airfield were having helicopter pleasure flights over the bank holiday weekend. Isn’t it time to use something quieter to pull the little rubbish trailer about such as a golf cart? Or reduce the number of bins so folk carry their own rubbish to the main skips? Works on other sites. Didn’t use the facilities other than the laundry which was Covid secure. In this time of Covid, we can’t expect to use club site facilities: apart from the tent campers, we are mostly all self contained.
