Location, location, location...Lower Hyde Holiday Park is only half a mile from the glorious sandy sweep of Shanklin beach, one of the most popular spots on the Isle of Wight.
If the sun has got his hat on, you can stretch out on the loungers beside the heated outdoor pool and watch the kids zoom down the flume; if it’s raining, there’s a spa pool inside instead; and whatever the forecast, you can look lively with a kickabout on the all-weather sports court. Brand new for the 2014 season is the Barn House Bar and Restaurant - a fresh new on-site venue waiting to welcome you.
As part of the Park Resorts group, Lower Hyde also has the usual great range of children’s clubs, with characters such as Sparky to keep the younger ones fizzing, and suitably cool activities such as film-making for teens. In the evenings, the on-site diner will get rid of the tummy rumbles, and the spacious Squires Showbar has a busy schedule of live bands, discos and cabaret.

Open from 20 Mar to 2 Nov
Aside from its fab beach, Shanklin offers a good variety of shops, seaside amusements and eateries, with some of the best examples of the latter to be found in the Old Village, a picture perfect cluster of thatched cottages and winding streets. The Shanklin Chine is a lovely wooded gorge with waterfalls and nature trails, and is doubly atmospheric when it’s lit up on summer evenings.
For those who like exploring by bike or Shank’s pony, there are miles of footpaths and cycling tracks around Lower Hyde Holiday Park. Some of the Isle of Wight’s most popular family attractions are nearby too, including Carisbrooke Castle, Dinosaur Isle and the Blackgang Chine theme park.

You can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on Pitchup.com.
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.
Use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together when booking multiple pitches: the campsite or park will try to grant your request.
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.
