Eye-popping views, your own private beach with powdery, golden sands, and a pitch snuggled among leafy woodland glades scampering with red squirrels? Did someone say "moon on a stick"? Turns out you can have it all (OK, maybe not the moon...) at Woodside Beach Holiday Park, a serenely pretty site nestled within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the northern coast of the Isle of Wight.
The setting is perfect if you just want to kick back and enjoy the peace and quiet you can spend your days swimming, rootling around in rock pools, fishing, creating your own kingdoms in the sand, or exploring the walking and cycle trails through the woods. If you do want to venture further afield, the Isle of Wight is so compact that all the attractions are in easy reach.
Woodside Beach Holiday Park’s facilities include a laundry room and children’s play area. There are various takeaway restaurants, a small supermarket and a pub that serves food just up the road in Wootton. The park is also very well-placed for transport to and from the mainland, thanks to its proximity to the Wootton Ferry.

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.

The towns of Ryde, Cowes and Newport are all just a few minutes’ drive from Woodside Beach Holiday Park and aside from the private beach on site, there are many other beautiful sands close by, including Gurnard Bay, Seagrove Bay and St Helen's.
The Isle of Wight is blessed with a stunning shoreline - there are no fewer than 13 award-winning beaches, pretty harbours, dramatic cliffs and rock formations like the Needles - and the equally intriguing interior is a diverse habitat that hosts a wide range of flora and fauna. The well-tended paths that criss-cross the woods, meadows and cliff tops make it easy to explore on foot or by bike, or you can take to the water for a bit of yachting, boating or fishing.
With such impressive natural charms, its understandable that the Isle of Wight has been a holiday playground for royalty, with Queen Victoria one of its greatest fans (you can take a tour of her holiday pad, Osborne House). King Charles I was perhaps a less willing visitor - he was banged up for a stretch at Carisbrooke Castle - but as you’ll see if you visit the place, he was hardly roughing it...
Dinosaurs once roamed these beaches, and visitors can see some of the evidence they left behind, and come face-to-face with life-sized reconstructions of previous residents, at the interactive museum at Dinosaur Isle.
Other popular tourist destinations include the Blackgang Chine theme park, and the rides and attractions of the Needles Park in Alum Bay, where you can take your pick of souvenirs - sticky treats from the sweet factory, some of Alum Bay’s famous rainbow sand, or a thing of beauty handcrafted by the talented artisans in the glass studio.
