Ninham Country Holidays: Beach

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 site 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.

A firm emphasis is placed on being nature friendly here: the park welcomes families and individuals who are environmentally conscious, where recycling is the norm and not the exception, and who want a scenic and peaceful space among nature with their family and friends.

AA 4 pennants

Please note

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 24/05 and 03/09 (subject to weather conditions).

Group bookings of 4 or more adults are not permitted (couples and immediate family members excepted).

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

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

Upon receipt of your booking, the site will email you a code for a 15% Red Funnel ferry discount offered.

    It is a lovely campsite. Staff is very friendly and always around to help if you need it. I
    specially loved the plot's setting out with privacy and plenty of space around the tent. there are high hedges to separate the rows.
    Facilities were very clean and spacious. Communal facilities look good although we didn't get the time to use them, or the pool.

    The site feels very rural and secluded despite being a stones throw from Shanklin town. It is located conveniently close to a Morrisons and Aldi and easy to find. There was little to no road noise at the site and the most irritating sound was that of the helicopter tours going overhead!

    The staff at reception were very friendly and informative and the chap who met us at our pitch told us everything we needed to know.

    The facilities were modern and exceptionally clean. Our pitch was large and well maintained. There were mainly families staying on the site and noise was not an issue.

    Overall I was very happy with our choice and I can heartily recommend Ninhams as a great base for holidaying in the Isle of White.

    The site was very good. Beautiful setting, modern and clean facilties, nice swimming pool, friendly staff. A good base for exploring the island.

    Disliked: 

    The site is very close to the Isle of Wight airfield and through the day there are lots of helicopters and small aeroplanes overhead, not a massive problem, but the sound is a distraction from the beauty of the site and the nature. No noise from the airfield at night.

    Disliked: 

    Big massive empty site but made to pitch sardine like all at the same end of the same field. No hot water in washing up sinks. Pot holed drive ways running upto and through site

From the manager...

Thank you for your feedback.
Whilst our site was as you say, half empty – but as you had speciifically booked an ‘all-service pitch’ - that was the pitch you were allocated, of which, we only have a total of 8 on site, all in a row.

Had you communicated that you’d prefeed to be pitched elsewhere we would have more than happy to allocate you another (standard) pitch.

Due to a leaking expansion vessel, whilst waiting on a new part, we did unfortunately have to turn off the hot water washing up sinks for 24 hours.

    Absolutely beautiful campsite, granted we were there on the first day it opened of the year but it was pristine.

    Really helpful reception, given bin bags and there were multiple different bins so you could recycle.

Directions

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)
