- Family park with plenty of organised activities
- Indoor pool, bar and evening entertainment
- Kids' club for children up to 11 years old
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 chances 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 kids up to 11.
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.
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.
Open from 23/03/2018 to 28/10/2018

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

To find us from Fishbourne, turn right out of the ferry terminal, following signs for Newport. At the traffic lights approaching the town centre take the right hand lane towards Cowes. At the end of the dual carriageway take the first exit sign posted Yarmouth (A3054). After 1 mile take the first turning to the right and follow the signs to Thorness Bay.
To find us from Yarmouth, take the A3054 towards Newport. After Shalfleet, turn left at the garage and follow the road through the villages of Newtown and Porchfield. After 2 miles turn left towards the entrance to the park.
Visitors will find lots of 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 jetskiing and windsurfing.
