General

  • Quiet and rural site a mile and a half from Cowes
  • Fully-equipped holiday homes with outdoor decking
  • Gurnard and Thurness beaches within walking distance

Feeling under the weather? Beneath a cloud of gloom? It's simple to feel sunny-natured on the Isle of Wight, home to plenty of sandy stretches of beach and so nicely compact so that wherever you bunk down on, all the many (many) island attractions will be no more than half an hour away from your pitch.

Many campers come to Cowes when going Wightwards, the island’s main port and where the famous regatta Cowes Week is held each August. This is also where canny islandgoers will find Sunnycott Caravan Park, a quiet and rural family-run site with self-catering caravans, all set out with plenty of space between for maximum privacy.

The park's about a mile and a half from Cowes, with Gurnard and Thurness beaches within walking distance and sailing, mountain bike hire and horse riding all easy to hand nearby.

Sunny cots are in fully-equipped holiday homes with outdoor decking and flatscreen TV. The park has wifi, 24 hour laundry facilities and a shop.

Dogs are welcome; for walkies, a public footpath leads to the beach just yards from Sunnycott, and Parkhurst Forest is within walking distance.

Nice clean home from home with fantastic view and friendly site owner 16/10/2018

    Jenny was really nice, friendly and welcoming and upgraded us to a larger caravan upon arrival. When there was a problem she dealt with it immediately. The caravan was clean and seemed really homely with everything we could possibly need. The view was fantastic and so relaxing to just sit and watch the the boats and ships passing by, the cows which would come over to say hello and the pheasants, hares and birds were really nice to see. We had fantastic weather during our stay, it rained all day on one day, but the rest were glorious sunshine 😎

    Disliked: 

    Having to walk in the road to get anywhere without driving. We did do it during the day, but didn't feel safe in the dark with no pavements so used taxis or drove ourselves.

    Disliked: 

    Wifi not clearly advertised. Whilst it didn't say free, we were surprised to pay £10 for 3 days (not owned by caravan park) and only one device could be connected at a time. Just something to bear in mind if you're expecting wifi. This wouldn't put us off staying again tho.

Directions


From Fishbourne (Wightlink, car ferry):

Go past the hospital on the right and prisons on the left and start to climb the hill. On passing through the pelican crossing take the next left at the post office to Noke Common Road. Carry on until you reach a T-junction, then turn right to a mini-roundabout and take the first left at the sign for Gurnard. This is the start of Rew Street. Go up the hill and the road narrows - past the bungalows on left. Sunnycott is the last property before the field.

From East Cowes (Red Funnel, car ferry):
Drive from the terminal past the entrance to Osborne House, through Whippingham to the roundabout to join the A3054. Turn right towards Newport and follow the directions above.

From Yarmouth (Wightlink, car ferry):
Drive from the ferry terminal to the roundabout and follow the road to the left out of Yarmouth towards Newport on the A3054. (note 40mph speed limit along this road).
At Shalfleet pass through the single lane traffic lights up the hill, and take the next left-hand turn before the filling station. Go along the winding road through Porchfield village passing the post office and the Sportsman's Rest pub.
Continue along this road for about two miles until a mini-roundabout, then follow the directions above.

Local attractions

Windsurfing, sailing, paragliding, festivals, theme parks…pretty much everything under the sun is handy on the Isle of Wight, and there’s an extensive bus service laid on for visitors who don’t want to take their car around the isle.

One should of course start off at the yachting centre of Cowes, Wight’s main port and where yachting has been famous since the Royal Yacht Squadron moved into Cowes Castle in 1858.

Yachters from all over the world descend on at the start of August each year for famous Cowes Week; if you’re at Cowes at any other time of the year, there are yachty events all year round including regattas, club racing and rallies. Take the chain ferry or floating bridge over the River Medina to East Cowes too – it’s free for foot passengers and cyclists.

If none of this floats your boat, this staggers us, but for time away from the water we suggest shopping in Cowes and East Cowes high streets, looking out for other events like the artisan market and food shows or taking your feet from the chain ferry along the Medina estuary to finish up at the Bargeman’s Rest in Newport.

The Isle of Wight Coastal Path covers 67 miles around the island; there are marked walks from East Cowes to Ryde, Yarmouth, Wooton and Gurnard.

Queen Vicky’s old pad and seaside palace Osborne House is less than three miles from Sunnycott – she and the brood loved the Isle of Wight and Osborne House is where she died in 1901.

There’s a heritage centre at East Cowes, the Classic Boat Museum Gallery and a maritime museum in Cowes library for those who like to see how the ordinary folk lived, and the historical can also dress up in Civil War garb at Carisbrooke Castle less than four miles from Sunnycott – this is where Charles One was nabbed after he fled the mainland. Or meander around the island’s many museums: we’re quite chuffed with the randomness that has a bus museum and a Roman villa both at Newport.

Natch the beach will be hit if the sun’s shining – Shanklin and Sandown should hit the spot as well as nearby Thorness and Gurnard – and there are two theme parks nearby, Blackgang Chine and the Robin Hill theme park.

The ‘Garden Isle’ also has plants and wildlife aplenty, as well as several animal-themed family days out: take the nippers along to the Isle of Wight Zoo, the Amazon World Zoo Park or the Owl and Monkey Haven.
