Explore the Isle of Wight with Experience Freedom


Experience a safari summer stay in the Isle of Wight with Experience Freedom from The Caravan and Motorhome Club. For a great break away with family or friends, the four-night 'Sail and Stay' includes glamping in a safari tent for up to five people and ferry crossing with a car, all from just £341*. 

From sandy beaches, plenty of walks and activities, the Isle of Wight is a great location for a staycation helping you to get outdoors. Glampers can start their trip with fresh, sea air as they cross the Solent on one of three ferry routes included in the deal, sailing from either Portsmouth, Southampton or Lymington.

Southland Campsite is situated on the outskirts of the small village of Newchurch, in the beautiful Arreton Valley on the Isle of Wight. With half the Isle of Wight designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are numerous breath-taking walks starting from the campsite, while Shanklin and Sandown are only three miles away, both offering sheltered bays and sandy beaches safe for bathing, making it a perfect location for an enjoyable summer holiday escape. With over 120 attractions and places of interest, including dinosaur museums and animal parks, glampers can enjoy an active getaway while making the most of Experience Freedom’s Sail and Stay deal. 

Experience Freedom’s authentic safari tents offer comfortable space for up to five people including a double bed, two single beds and an overhead bed, a kitchenette and dining area plus ample outdoor space to enjoy, including a BBQ station for balmy summer nights.
