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.

AA 4 pennants

Please note

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 24/05 and 15/09 (subject to weather conditions).

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)

    Beautiful tranquil setting, in lush green setting in rolling hills. Not over packed like other nearby campsites. With enough to entertain the kids with the pool and games room and clean washing facilities. Friendly staff.

    The campsite is in a beautiful and quiet setting, set down a long track away from the busy road. The facilities were great, the kids loved the pool and the games room. The shower/toilet block was great, with a big family shower and a baby bath included, which I thought was a very thoughtful addition. The staff on site were helpful, and informative, and showed us the way to get to our pitch. We would definitely recommend the site to others, and would revisit if we came again. Thanks.

    The changing and washing facilities were excellent. I loved having the option of being able to shower or top and tail in privacy. The sinks were always clean and well looked after the whole block was clean all the time and thank goodness there was hot water in the showers!! There was a water tap outside too for drinking which was great to have nearby and the swimming pool was fantastic. It was clean and safe and looked after. My daughter enjoyed it xx
    We chose the electric hook up this time which was great. We hired the hook up lead and plugged that in. It was all perfect.
    I loved being able to boil a kettle to feed my tea addiction! The staff were really helpful and went out of their way to help us I’d definitely stay there again!

    Disliked: 

    The only negative or something that I would’ve liked would be available freezers to put our ice blocks into but it was no major drama as we just bought ice packs which were available at the 3 supermarkets two minutes away which was also a bonus! Or you could buy ice from reception and hire ice blocks at the campsite x

    Facilities are the best we have ever stayed at

    Disliked: 

    Pedantic owners whose understanding of the meaning of hospitality leaves a lot to be desired.

From the manager...

I would be normally be fairly content with a 8/10 review, but it is somewhat disappointing to be at the receiving the end of criticism aimed at the 'management' when I personally ( as the owner ) have had no interaction with you as a guest.

Without any substance to your complaint it is hard to comment further, but we do our best to welcome guests into our family home year on year, with a high percentage of return custom, and consistent positive feedback & reviews.

The office has received no feedback directly, nor experienced any issues with your group, during your stay, that could quantify or reflect your comments. It is appreciated that feedback be communicated directly with a member of staff during your stay and/or before posting a review, so we would have the opportunity to address any issues. Thank you

Directions


Our private drive is off the Newport – Sandown Road on the A3056.

We advise the following for towed units:

Arrivals from the Newport / Cowes / Yarmouth direction: go past the park entrance and proceed 400 metres to Morrisons supermarket roundabout, turn back and continue up to our private lane (located on the left).

From Ryde / Fishbourne direction: take the A3055 and turn onto the A3056 at Lake. Continue for 1km, passing over the Morrisons Supermarket roundabout. The drive is 400 metres further on your left.

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.
