Five Star Plus

After staying here at Meadow Lakes I can’t wait to return. On arrival Julian and Stephanie’s hospitality was amazing 😉 they greeted us with genuine smiles, offering tea or coffee, which was served on a tray with a small jug of milk. From that moment on my husband and I knew we’d found a “gem” of a place to stay with our Campervan. All the information we needed for our stay (and more) was given in a clear and concise manner... We thoroughly enjoyed the first day by staying on site - relaxing, listening to the wildlife, admiring the views and taking short walks around this this beautiful, secluded spot, although it’s vast in size.... We ate out in the lovely village of Brighstone (delicious food) also at “The White Mouse” on the Military Road. All meals reasonably priced. This site is not just a fisherman’s “dream” location - it is also for those who respect and appreciate “tranquility” And finally:- I was blown away to see the highest standard (5 ⭐️ +) of “cleanliness” and “fittings” in the shower and toilets. The whole site is a credit to Julian and Stephanie’s hard work. Thank you for a memorable stay. In a review someone else said:- £15 per night is a steal. (We’re in total agreement)....

Top Notch

We arrived on site early, as we caught an earlier ferry. A quick call was made, they said it was ok to come on to the site.The weather was not good . The welcome was excellent and made to feel at home. Site clean and level, nice views of the fishing lakes and surrounding area. The only thing to worry about is the road down to the site which is narrow in places, but has passing places. I would recommend this site for peace and quite and friendly welcome . We will book again next year but hopefully with better weather. Enjoy we certainly did, dispite the weather.

A Little Gem

Stayed for 7 nights in August this year, booking was a doddle, Stephanie organised the ferry for me and I got a good price for the crossing. I was greeted with a very welcome cup of tea and biscuits on arrival, the site is in a good location with flat pitches (did not need the chocks ) the toilet and shower were very clean a tidy. The local shop which stocks everything you need including local produce is about a mile away. For the fishers amongst us there are 3 well stocked ponds the largest has some serious carp in it, but even in the smaller pond which stocks up to 10lb the fish really do fight !. Highly recommended.

Tremendous site

My wife and I stayed a week on this site July 2019. We targetted it because of the fishing lakes (I am a carp fisherman) and we both were very, very pleased with our stay. As soon as we arrived, owners Stephanie and Julian were on hand to tend to every needs (it's not often you're offered a cuppa on arrival!) and from then on in, they were always in or around this beautiful site, busying themselves in it's maintenance and upkeep. It is located on the downslope of the central highland and commands lovely views across to the cliffs at Freshwater Bay and the surrounding flat farmlands in all other apsects. The lakes onsite are gorgeous - stuffed with splendid fish (trout in one, carp in two others and a general assortment of coarse in the others) and they are fished by visitors which shows their worth to the local angling community. Meadow Lakes also sits well between Ventor and Freshwater and Newport, so any of these are reachable through some pretty car (or bike - if you're up for it) journeys. We ate at the local pubs, the Crown at Shorwell, the Blackmiths Arms and the Sun Inn which are a bit further away and they all gave us excellent food. But the real jewel of this site has to be the owners who I have said, are professionalism and friendliness to the max. We felt totally at home and they even put on a 'campers barbecue' in their purpose-built covered area. Superb. My wife and I can't recommend this site enough, and we will be back there, definitely.

First stay in a CL

This was our first stay in a CL and it will not be our last at this one. Julian and Stephanie made us feel welcome from the start and we quickly got settled in. This spot is very secluded, although the lovely village of Brighstone is only a mile away with a great village shop and a pub. This site is in a really quiet area of the Isle of Wight, giving the opportunity for cycling and walkers of all abilities to get out and about. Fishermen would love this this site, given the various fish in the lakes. Lots of wildlife around as well, with owls, heron, swans amongst the menagerie we saw during our stay. £15 per night is a steal.

Not to be missed

This is was our second visit in succession to a peaceful, secure, level and closely mowed cl and for Julian and Steph the site owners nothing is too much trouble. There are lovely walks around the fishing lakes and out of the gates. The Isle of Wight offers so much for everyone of all ages and this cl makes your visit complete. We will definitely be returning.

Perfect Hosts

This is the quiet side of the island, however, nothing is very far away. We were immediately welcomed by Stephanie and Julian who provided a welcome coffee whilst we pondered the pitch. Our friendly and helpful hosts were always available as they attended to the fishing lakes. Nothing was too much trouble. As I waited to photograph the swans taking off for their early morning flight, Julian walked by and suggested that they wouldn't be flying that day as they are quite lazy and required a SW breeze. Thankfully they obliged the following day after Julian gave them a gentle nudge into the water. The site is well laid out, with the lakes providing a little evening stroll. Julian's smoked trout pate is fab. I saw him with 6 large fish on the Monday which were to be smoked Tues and available Wed. You don't get fresher than that. It was a great holiday and we will return.

3rd visit

August 2016 saw our 3rd visit and everything is still as great as previous reviews. There is so much to see and do on the Isle of Wight and anyone visiting this site will not be disappointed with the reception you receive, the quality of the site, its location and if you fish both the trout fly fishing and course fishing are spot on. We are planning to return next year.

Peaceful haven

What a fabulous site! We were made very welcome even arriving at 8.15 am after an early ferry. Julian was very helpful offering us a cup of tea on arrival. The site was kept immaculately was so tranquil it was within easy reach of all places to visit and we were given a very useful welcome pack containing lots of things to see and do in the area. We would definitely recommend this site and hope to return in the not too distant future. Although neither of us go fishing the fishing lakes seemed to be very popular.

second visit

This was our second visit. Last year we only had 9 nights but this time we had 13 all of which were just as good as last year. Stephanie and Julian are the most helpful, kind and considerate people you could ever wish to meet nothing is too much trouble. Whether you like fishing or not you cannot fail to enjoy this site.
