General

  • Peaceful site surrounded by woods filled with wildlife
  • A short drive from Shanklin
  • Heated outdoor pool

This is such a pretty site – tucked in a quiet glen beside an unruffled duck pond, and embraced by bluebell woods full of red squirrels, badgers and woodpeckers - that you may never want to leave... When you do manage to drag yourself away from Ninham Country Holidays, it’s just a short ride through gorgeous countryside to the sandy beaches and thatched roofs of Shanklin, the island’s top resort.

The site has a large pond and a heated outdoor pool for relaxing soaks. If you’re coming for one of the festivals, imagine how civilised it would be to come back to this blissful place instead of fighting it out for tent space among the crowds (the number 8 bus gets you to the Isle of Wight Festival in half an hour).

The park has two camping areas set either side of the wooded valley: The Orchard area is a four-star site with modern shower facilities, and accepts dogs in the low season but not during school summer holidays. Willow Brook is ungraded and has more basic shower facilities, but shares use of all the other amenities that Ninham has to offer. Willow Brooks is open only during school summer holidays and allows dogs during this period.

AA 4 pennants

Please note

The site caters for families (immediate members) and couples only - bookings from all other forms of groups are not accepted.

Dogs are not allowed on the Orchard pitches during high season (15/07 - 02/09)

Well worth paying the extra to stay in the Meadow ... 21/08/2017

    Well worth paying the extra to stay in the Meadow - near the facilities which were good and clean. Friendly welcome. Confusing pitching arrangements. Think we were supposed to have our tent entrance facing the car rather than facing out to the field, but others were facing out so we did too - nice to say "good morning" to neighbours! Inflatable time in the pool was fun. 10 min drive to Shanklin which is nice beach. 5 min drive to Morrisons and Aldi.

    We really liked the site. It was beautifully presented with neat grass and hedges. Two very picturesque ponds between the upper fields and lower fields.
    The toilets in the lower field were clean and showers were very hot.
    The pool and surrounding area were also very good. My wife, children and I had a couple of swims, water was a comfortable 24 degrees.
    Children used the games room to play pool, we didn't use the TV room as we like to get away from that on holiday. But it's well set-up for children and teenagers.
    Table tennis badminton and vollyball nets in the upper field.
    Liked the cycle paths coming from the site, we cycled to Shanklin and Sandown which took about 30 mins.

    Disliked: 

    Small thing but It would be helpful if there were a few hooks in the sink area to hold a towel. When I was with my two children getting them washed and teeth cleaned I had to hold three towels as the tops were wet.
    Morrisons was a 15 minute cycle or 5 minute drive, but we prefer a camp shop to buy milk bread and bacon. Or if a local supplier came to the site we would have bought from them.

Local attractions

The plentiful cycle tracks and footpaths mean it’s easy to start exploring the Isle of Wight’s diverse terrain of hills, woodland and white cliffs framing golden beaches.

Not for nothing is this called the Garden Isle: Mediterranean plants thrive in the mild climate, and visitors can expect to spot a wide range of wildlife around and about. It’s no wonder Queen Victoria and her brood decamped here so frequently from smelly London (visitors can check out their seaside digs at Osborne House).

Natural attractions aside, the island offers great watersports 

from its lovely beaches, as well as all manner of other athletic activities, and sights to suit all tastes.

Culture vultures should try Carisbrooke Castle or one of the many museums, dinosaur hunters can track down the great beasts that used to roam the shores, fledgling zoologists will enjoy the many animal-based attractions, and that’s before we even get started on the scenic steam railway, glorious botanic gardens or rip-roaring theme parks...

Must see

  • Dinosaur Isle (2.1 miles)
  • Isle of Wight Steam Railway (4.2 miles)
  • Ventnor Botanic Gardens (5.9 miles)

National Trust

  • Bembridge Windmill (4.8 miles)
  • Brighstone Shop and Museum (9.1 miles)

Cycle routes

Find local routes on the National Cycle Network - over 12,000 miles of cycling routes.
