Relax on an Isle of Wight camping trip this September

08/09/2016

Take a tent, take your ‘van and pitch up in the natural wilderness. Or if that’s not your thing, a stay at a campsite with some home comforts is a great alternative.

Excellent value

When it comes to Isle of Wight Caravan Parks, Southland Club Site is a great choice. Set in the beautiful Arreton Valley on the eastern side of the island, the site is just 15 minutes drive from the beach.

Both members and non-members can camp at Southland and prices start at just £18.20 per night (for a pitch and two adults). Visitors also have full access to the toilet and shower block and the play area is sure to keep the kids entertained.

Southland also has some great ‘van pitch offers to help make your money go that little bit further. From September 4 to 30, visitors bringing their 'van can pitch for just £2 a night. If you’re travelling without a car, we also have exclusive Wightlink short break and foot passenger offers.

Isle of Wight attractions

Keep the family busy with a choice of over 120 attractions, including:

the Needles theme park, with its exciting chair lift ride. The views are stunning, but you’ll need a head for heights!
the historical summer home of Queen Victoria; Osborne House.
the Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary in Niton, where you can meet the four-legged residents face-to-face
red squirrel-spotting at Alverstone Mead. They come out for feeding early in the morning and late afternoon - if you bring them some peanuts, they'll put on a real show.

Insider tip – If you enjoy nature-spotting or photography, head for the bird hide at Alverstone Mead. It’s just ten minutes from our Southland site.

Dog-friendly beaches on the Isle of Wight 

The Isle of Wight is proud to be one of the most dog-friendly places in the UK, with dozens of dog-friendly beaches, pubs and hotels on the island.

Whether your four-legged friend likes a bit of sand under their paws, or prefers rock pools to rummage in, you can’t throw a stick on the island without hitting a dog-friendly beach.

These sites are perfect for a long walk:

  • Brook Bay
  • Cowes
  • Freshwater Bay
  • Gurnard
  • Ryde Beach
  • Sandown Beach (just 15 minutes from Southland)
  • Shanklin Beach
  • Totland Bay

As Club member, Stusky, recently said: "The Isle of Wight is one of the best holiday destinations in the UK - if you haven't been for a while - go again."

Few memories will rival the ones you make on an Isle of Wight family holiday.

Southland is open for camping right up until 30 September and prices start from just £18.20 per night (two adults and a pitch).
