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.

  • Liked: 

    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.

    Disliked: 

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

    Quiet and clean site, in lovely countryside. Enjoyed the outdoor pool and proximity to the beach. Would be very happy to stay here again.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing really. If I was nit picking, in poor weather it would be nice to have a small shop, somewhere to have a meal and a larger indoor space. However these are a short drive away anyway.

Outstanding quiet location, clean shower and toilet facilities 29/08/2017

  • Willow Brook electric grass tent or trailer tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The cleanliness and calmness of the whole camping site is outstanding. Very good shower and toilet facilities helped a lot to stay fresh.
    The location of the tents is far from the nearest road, making it possible to tune into nature at night. The location is also ideal for astro photography as there's absolutely no light pollution.

Excellent site with clean facilities and large level pitches 29/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Daniel S. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Orchard electric grass tent or trailer tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Everything at the park is immaculately clean and well kept there's plenty of Meadow for wildlife and the kids can run around perfectly safe. The swimming pool is immaculately clean and tidy as well good water quality and a little tea and coffee hut next to it serving great coffee. There are badminton and volleyball nets as well as a small play park, TV room and games room. There is no shop on site but this isn't a problem as there is a large supermarket less than 5 minutes drive and 20 minutes walk away. No Wi-Fi available on site but this was nice and the 4G coverage is excellent if you're desperate for it.

    Disliked: 

    I can't really say I disliked anything but as a small picky issue I would say the children's play park wasn't the biggest

    Lovely clean & friendly camp site. Stayed in the orchard section - shower blocks are very clean, there are washing machines (£3 a go) and the outdoor swimming pool is lovely (there's a little hut that sells ice creams/drinks/crisps). There is also a play area and indoor games room.

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.
