Weekend break

We recently spent a weekend at this great CL which has beautiful views and surrounded by horses in the fields, beautifully kept mowed site with very friendly owners. Will definitely revisit.

Excellent CL

We stayed here for a few weeks and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. This is a very well kept, quiet site with good views and lots of good walks nearby. The owner Adrian is very welcoming and helpful. If you want a good base to explore the island then this site suits your needs. Being close to a large commercial site means you have access to a shop, take away, bar and restaurant (which overlooks Thorness Bay) but all the peace and quiet you expect on a CL. It's close to Newport and Cowes, the nature reserve at Newtown. The scenic drive along the Military Road to Alum Bay in one direction or Blackgang Chine the other is about 20mins drive away. One of the best CLs we've stayed on. Thank you Adrian.

Lovely well kept site

Very easy to find site with good access. Nice welcome and lovely touch of having our name on allocated pitch. The site is very kept with, as other have said, beautiful and interrupted views of the countryside. Walks are close by, one through the near by holiday camp leading to the beach and one across fields, both of which are lovely. The site benefits from a south position thus having the benefit of the sun all day if your lucky enough! The owners couldn’t be more helpful and as we are local let us stay on till the evening to enjoy the May Bank Holiday to the max at no extra charge. Would definitely recommend this site and we will definitely return.

Fantastic site

Lovely site, peaceful, well maintained, well positioned to visit anywhere on the island by car, beautiful views, easy to find, friendly welcome. Would definitely return to this site should we visit the island again, close to a large site with all the amenities you would expect there, but not intrusive to the tranquillity of this CL. and again I say beautiful views!! Thankyou!!

What a view!

Easy to find CL site. Beautifully kept field with well mown field, surrounded by horse paddocks. Right next to The Coastal path so a walk to Cowes and back along a well sign posted foot path was great for us and the dogs. The large holiday park nearby was handy to buy bread and papers and also to use the bar to watch the football but you wouldn't know it was there otherwise. Lovely friendly owner.

When can we return?

Wow! Simply one of the best CLs we have ever stayed on. The site is very close to the big caravan park but the owner has made sure that the CL is esy to find. The site itself is well laid out and spacious. The grass is short the site is immaculately clean and tidy. The owner falls over himself to help-even bringing an information pack full of useful leaflets on arrival. As for the view-well simply stunning from all angles.  We will return as soon as possible.

Great site made welcome on arrival by site owner Adrian( Mr Brookes) 360 degrees views from every window site very clean grass cut hard standind pitch would visit more if the ferry prices were lower, how can sites like this compete with the larger ones that get discounts from ferry company's shame on them, wish all sites were like this great standard and a credit ti Adrian (Mr Brookes)

Peace and Quiet

A well kept peaceful CL with lovely views of rolling countryside and only about 15 minutes walk to the beach. (Local beach, Thorness Bay, is pebbly with little or no sand). The owner was very welcoming and helpful on our arrival. Site is a good base to explore the Island especially the Solent and west coast. Unfortunately the local bus service has been reduced to only one bus once a week. We would visit again and would be pleased to recommend the site to others.

Stunning views

Staying for a short winter break in January - excellent little site, perfect for a quiet getaway after the Christmas rush-around. Hard standings makes for easy pitching, and we were met, welcomed and shown to our pitch by the owner on our arrival. The field is spacious and well kept, as is the services area. The most prominent feature of this site is the views - 360 degrees panoramic countryside - probably the most beautiful CL we've ever stayed in. Will be back, definitely.

Great base to explore the Island

Just returned from our second 2 week break to this site and it is still as nice as last year. Mr Brookes is very welcoming and gave us a welcome pack with lots of information on what was happening in the area. The views are outstanding from rolling hills on one side to the solent on the other. the road leading to the site is well signposted although narrow and bumpy but not a problem for us, and the gate can be tight but there are hooks on both to hold them open. The holiday park across the road has a shop for any emergency supplies but Newport just a short drive away has a Morrisons and Lidl for main groceries. You can also use the laundrette at the holiday park which is really useful although a bit pricey. thank you to Mr Brookes for a very well kept site which I would recommend to anyone.
