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.

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.

    We only stayed for 1 night whilst on a cycling tour of the island, but wished we had stayed longer. The facilities were fabulous. Beautiful pitches with plenty of privacy, and very well kept grounds. The washroom/shower facilities were impeccably clean, and the games and play areas looked well cared for. The pool looked beautiful, and the only disappointment was that it was being cleaned so we couldn’t use it. Had we stayed longer we most definitely would have jumped in! The staff were very friendly, and overall we were very impressed. We would definitely recommend and will be back - our favourite on the island!

  • Liked: 

    We really liked this campsite alot. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful.The swimming pool was great for the kids and ourselves to use.The toilet and showers facilities were really clean and modern. The tent pitch was clean and a good sized area.

    Disliked: 

    kids kept kicking footballs at the climbing wall even when small children were using it so maybe a sign on the wall might help people know its not area for footballs to be kicked at. plus boys will be boys after all. And the only other thing not really a big problem but it would have been handy to have a onsite shop even just to sell drinks and ice creams but not the end of the world as there is a couple of big supermarket shops about 2 mins away from the campsite.

  • Liked: 

    Lovely quiet site set in stunning countryside, only ten minutes from gorgeous Sandown beach and close to local amenities as well as a host of other attractions. Staff were friendly and helpful, facilities clean and well presented. The pitches were level or on gently sloping grass which was well maintained and easy to pitch in. Perfect for families, as the only noise is from children at play and all was quiet before 10pm. I also appreciated the emphasis which the camp places on being green and recycling, including using recycled rain water to flush the toilets.

    Location as it is just far enough out of town to have peace and quiet yet close enough to run to the local if you need anything.
    Very family orientated and all campers were respectful of each other and common courtesy was in abundance.

    Nothing that we did not like at all......will definitely be back

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.
