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 Campsite 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 Campsite 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.

Brilliant wardens

Southland Club Campsite
Just had a week at this well kept site. The Wardens were amazing, some of the best we have ever had. Always cheerful and smiling and a warm welcome on site even though we were early due to the ferry timetables. Always waving to you as you went past and you felt really welcome. The site is so well laid out and the shop on site is always well stocked, try the New Forest ice cream it is gorgeous. We were welcomed by one of the resident robins who spent most of the week bombing in and out of our awning for titbits, they had us taped. We ate at the Pointer Inn down the road and I have to say the food was excellent, always fresh and well prepared and a choice of regular size plate or smaller. We reduced down to the smaller plate size as the regular was too much for us, but really good value for money. I would recommend booking if you want to eat there as it is so busy because of the good food. Well done to the Wardens on this excellent site.

Southland Club Campsite
First of all I must say it was a lovely clean well kept site wardens were always out and about doing jobs and they were always willing to stop and have a chat We were in a motorhome but we got about with our electric bikes and the buses. Your best bet is to turn right outside the site go down the hill to the cross roads turn right and there are 2 bus stops for different directions 20 mins into Newport and you can get a bus to anywhere. We got an 24 hr bus ticket for £10 so we could get on and off where ever you wanted we timed it right to get 2 tickets that lasted us 3 days. The pub down the road ( left as you come out of the site) was very nice food would highly recommend it was called the pointer another pub about 20 mins walking called the fighting cocks I wouldn't recommend it was just ok Red squirrel cycling tracks were very good kept you off main roads. Will definitely return one day

Excellent Site

Southland Club Campsite
What a wonderful site! We've just stayed at Southland's over the Easter holidays with 2 dogs and a 5 year old and loved every bit of the site. On arrival we were greeted by the friendly wardens who were very helpful and clearly keep the site immaculate. It was a 20-25 minute drive from Fishbourne ferry and the site is so well positioned, pretty much in the middle of the island and so easy to get everywhere. The site is spacious and very peaceful. Lovely dog friendly areas and a great off-the-lead dog walk. Our 5 year old loved the play park which is very well equipped. Toilet and shower facilities were excellent, spotless and had lovely hot showers. Big thumbs up there. Another big bonus for us was the ferry discount you get from CMC. You just phone them up and they sort all the ferry booking out for you and you get huge savings. We were tipped-off about this by another CMC member, otherwise we wouldn't have known you can get discount and probably wouldn't have booked. We are so glad we did and we are already planning our return trip. Thank you Southland's for a wonderful holiday.

Excellent

Southland Club Campsite
We were so impressed with this site when we visited over Easter and we had the most wonderful warm welcome when we arrived. The staff were so friendly and informative. The pitches were lovely and we had beautiful sunshine all day and the wardens gave us advise on the pitches based on what we wanted. The facilities were great and immaculately kept. I loved that fact that every morning the wardens brought out a giant connector 4 and games onto the green for the children to play. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. Can’t recommended highly enough and I wish all the sites were like this.

Amazing wardens, perfect site

Southland Club Campsite
Well I must say the wardens on this site are the best we have encountered, so friendly and helpful and they worked so hard to keep the site immaculate.. We stayed 3 nights in March and had lovely weather so we had some lovely trips out on the bus. Caught the bus to Shanklin then walked on the beach to Sandown and bused back. Dont be put off by the poor bus route outside the site that only runs 3 days a week and only two buses a day as there is another bus stop close by at Amazon World that has connections to anywhere on the island. Would highly reccommend this site.
