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

Beautiful

Instantly on arrival we just knew this site was something special. Away from main roads, close to a village with a local pub. And when driving through looking for a pitch we just knew we were in for a great stay. It is split into sections which are separated by the most neat looking hedging. Trees and plants all around. We had no problem choosing a pitch as there were many that were excellent. The grass pitches are the best we've seen and everything around was so neat and tidy. The wardens here obviously do a magnificent job. Good dog walk with fabulous views. Lots of rabbits in the fields and horses in the paddocks. Our first visit to Isle of Wight and we will definitely return. It is easy to get around and doesn't take long to get to anywhere, and there is lots to see! Good local pubs are The Pointers in the village and The Fighting Cocks on the main road. Further afield we enjoyed lunch right on the seafront in Ventnor at The Spyglass Inn. Osbourne house worth a visit. So much to do and places to see. A great holiday!

Superb stay

What a joy to find a well maintained, spotlessly clean and quiet site. Lovely helpful staff, plenty of help and advice provided. First visit to IOW and would return to this site definitely. Recommended to friends already. Thoroughly enjoyed the week. Deserves its 5* rating and a bargain for the site fees, we've paid double for 1/2 as much in the past at other sites.

One of the best UK sites

This is a lovely well kept site which on the grassy pitches has rather unique yew and other hedges that give both shelter and break up the area to give a garden like feel. Admittedly we had fantastic weather and were able to relax outside for much of the time. The grass pitches in particular are very spacious and the whole site is peaceful being set in countryside on the edge of the very quiet village of Newchurch. Within minutes you can reach the Red Squirrel cycle trail and also the Round the Island trail. Using local lanes and trails we were able to pedal to a variety of locations such as Newport, Cowes, Sandown, Shanklin and the Donkey Sanctuary (a must-see!). The pub (a 10 minute walk away) has a great menu and the food is well above the average 'pub grub'. You need to book though as it is extremely popular. We were very impressed with this site and its good facilities and the helpful wardens.
