General

  • Award-winning park in a nine-acre wildlife haven
  • Carefully managed to attract and enhance local wildlife
  • Barbecue areas, picnic tables and well-kept amenities

It’s all about the three Rs at award-winning Heathfield Farm Camping on the Isle of Wight…Or possibly four. Or five? These nine acres of countryside are decidedly relaxed and rural; the well-kept amenities have been recently refurbished; and, as it’s a wildlife haven, it’s a fairly reasonable bet you’ll see a resident red squirrel or two: Heathfield has been the recipient of many David Bellamy Gold Conservation Awards and carefully manages its habitat to attract local birds and beasties.

Running around is a breeze too, with a wildflower meadow for canines to roll around in and a roomy playing field for ball games and kids to let off steam – parents can ensure relaxation while this happens by prepping dinner/supping wine at the adjacent barbecue areas and picnic tables.

As mentioned among the Rs above, the amenity buildings at Heathfield Farm Camping are refurbished and up to date: guests have access to showers and loos, hairdryers and shaver points, wash cubicles and a separate wheelchair-accessible room with shower and toilet, all kept to smartly high standards.

Specially planted native trees and shrubs shelter most of the park’s roomy and marked pitches, all of which are level, easily accessible and with electric hook-up.

Although Heathfield has a remote and rural feel, its West Wight location is only a mile from the shops and eating emporia of Freshwater village. Once you’re ready to venture off a-field, the new tourist information office has stacks of literature on what to do locally, and the information board on site has maps with colour coded walks into bridlepaths of the surrounding countryside. Even more handily, the island’s bus network has a stop outside the park – just the ticket for some restful roaming…

    Our pitch was at the far end which was in the shade by 4 pm so would have preferred to be further up the field.

    This campsite is one of the best campsites I have stayed on! We arrived earlier than the 11 o'clock booking in time but still were made very welcome and were given our pitch straight away! The campsite itself was extremely well looked after and all areas were kept immaculate! The couple who looked after the site, apologies for forgetting their names were so lovely and chatty, and made you feel welcome... they did an amazing job looking after the site! There is a wooden hut that has lots of information about the island and leaflets that u can take away!
    The location of the campsite is also ideal as there is a pub down the road and a small co-op and and sainsburys nearby! There are walks that you can do from the site that have spectacular in views!
    Love the Isle of Wight and I love this campsite! Thank you for making my camping holiday pure bliss!

    Disliked: 

    It's not a dislike for me but this site comes across as a quiet site! If you want to go and have loud heavy drinking nights that go on till the early hours, with your mates well it's not that kind of site! By 10.30 it was quiet! Perfect for us on this occasion!

    Huge pitches, loads of room for the kids to play. Help yourself herb garden, tomatoes and strawberries a lovely idea. The owners are always on hand and nothing is too much trouble. Even with a really busy site they still remembered the kids names and always have time for a chat. The toilets and showers always clean and tidy.

    Friendly wardens, free showers, spacious pitches, good location with onsite information point and local map. Extra touches like bricks for bbq and racks for drying dishes as we'd forgotten ours, and could pick fresh herbs and tomatoes for free. Site felt secure with the barriers closing at 10:30.

Local attractions

Everywhere on the Isle of Wight is easily reachable by bus or car in the short sort of time that makes the eyes of London commuters water, but if you want to start off on the west side there’s more than enough here to keep all ages happy. Freshwater’s large village (former home of Tennyson, poetry peeps) is edged by the chalk cliffs of Freshwater Bay and its beach, a mix of sand, pebbles and waves popular with watersporters.

Kayak at low tide from Freshwater around the hidden caves used by smugglers in days of yore and to the small bays of Watcombe and Scratchells, or book tuition in kayaking, paddleboarding and surfing from the team at Freshwater’s Isle of Wight Adventure Activities.

The West Wight Sports Centre and Freshwater Bay Golf Club are in the vicinity too, and for those who prefer to bask sandily, the west side of the island has spectacular beaches and excellent bathing water at the bays of Colwell, Compton and Totland.

The 67 miles of spectacularly scenic walks that is the Isle of Wight Coastal Path runs through Freshwater: walk two miles from Heathfield to Yarmouth to access the 14 mile walk to Brighstone, and from there the eight miles to Niton.

If 67 miles of coastline isn’t enough, Wight has over 500 miles of public pathways through towns and villages, over downs and fields, up hills and through woodland: guided tours, including fossil walks, are available all over the island and a walking festival is run every spring and autumn.

Among the most famed attractions on the Isle of Wight are the three chalk stacks of The Needles at Alum Bay, again on Wight’s west side. The activities park built around The Needles has all sorts for all sorts including a 4D cinema, sweet factory, golf course and a funfair with vintage cars for small people to drive, but the main high-light is the chair lift from The Needles overlooking the red cliffs of Alum: bring a camera and a sense of adventure for a tiptop Isle of Wight experience.

Must see

  • Fort Victoria Country Park (1.3 miles)
  • Needles Park - Heritage Attractions Ltd (2.2 miles)
  • The Needles Old Battery & New Battery (2.8 miles)

National Trust

  • The Needles Old Battery and New Battery (2.8 miles)
