A lunchtime drink on the terrace of the Boathouse Bar watching the white sails of the yachts zipping across the water, a hop and a skip down the leafy path to the beach for the afternoon, or a fun-filled night of live entertainment in the Showbar...there are many permutations for relaxation at Thorness Bay Holiday Park in Cowes.
Whippersnappers will love whooshing down the slide into the indoor pool before trying out a bit of snorkelling and blading, and they may disappear for some time into the various kids’ clubs, which offer funtastic activities for children up to 11 years old. The whole family can get stuck into a range of sports on the all-weather court, and during the organised sessions you could chance your arm at archery or even learn to wield a crossbow.
Tents, tourers and motorhomes are all accommodated at this Park Resorts group site, with both electric and non-electric pitches available, and great sea views as standard. To complement the usual amenities, there’s a shop and laundry room, an outdoor playground for the little ones, amusements, darts and a pool table - and the occasional bingo session thrown in for fun.
Nearby attractions and activities
Visitors will find lots of lustworthy yachts and powerboats to drool over in Cowes harbour, and the town is also home to Osborne House, the country retreat of Queen Victoria and her brood. It’s well worth a nose around this magnificent house and its lovely gardens, and the Victorian afternoon teas aren’t half bad, either...
Since the Isle of Wight is such a bijou island, it doesn’t take long to reach other top attractions such as Carisbrooke Castle, the posh pile where King Charles I was imprisoned, and the island’s heritage steam railway, which regularly runs themed events.
For those who fancy a change from the beach at Thorness Bay, the shallow waters at Colwell Bay Beach, about 25 minutes away by car, are great for swimming, as well as watersports such as jet skiing and windsurfing.

Lovely holiday, my kids had the best time!
sally h. (Family with young children, 1 review, 0 photos) Confirmed ?
Liked: The beaches, the fact that the camp had a pool and a well equipped park, was in a pretty rural location.
Disliked: The fact that there dogs in the camp, my 4 year old daughter is scared of dogs and they were everywhere! Would of been nice to be warned dogs were allowed and could be in the pitch next to us!
