General

  • Scenic and secluded pop-up farm site with views of the Shanklin Downs
  • A five-minute drive from Shanklin and Sandown beaches and resorts
  • Rural park with bridleways and footpaths leading from the grounds

Think there’ll be plenty of scenery to feast your eyes on while idling around the Isle of Wight? You’d be absolutely correct – and some of the most top-notch views are to be seen around Willow Brook Camping.

Don’t quite believe it? Simply check out the pics of this pop-up site on Ninham Farm, then potter over here in the summer and during school holidays. Its grounds have prime panoramas of the Shanklin Downs in the distance and are a five-minute drive from the sandy and scenic beaches of Shanklin and Sandown.

The park’s eco-friendly owners encourage you to forget about the car and walk (40 minutes) or cycle (15 minutes) to the seaside – they follow a leave-nothing-but-footprints way of life, backed up by planet-saving touches like 100% renewable energy and excellent recycling facilities.

If you’re fully up for embracing this ethos, head off along the footpaths and bridleways leading directly from the site towards some of the island’s most stunning countryside and beaches. The Victorian-era town of Shanklin is also accessible on foot (less than 30 minutes) and a couple of supermarkets are less than 15 minutes' stroll away.

With a low number of people permitted on site and level grass pitches to complement the mature hedges and woodlands, this park has simple and secluded vibes. In line with this, the washrooms and shower facilities are basic but clean.

    Brilliant campsite - friendly staff, well spaced out, and great location. The shower and toilet block was kept clean and we never had to really queue for them.

Local attractions

Got your walking boots and bike ready to go? Great – this site’s a fab base for investigating the many sights and attractions of the Isle of Wight by foot or on two wheels.

Start off in Shanklin Chine (40 minutes’ walk), strolling around the gorge in this nature reserve, or amble down beside the coast and across the beaches and cliffs. In town there are shows to see at the theatre, cream teas to be eaten in the pubs and deck chairs to laze in on the sand.

If you’ve got animal-loving nippers to appease, wander to the Amazon World Zoo (35 minutes) or dawdle to the Donkey Sanctuary (five minutes’ drive); you’ll also need to jump in the car for other Isle of Wight attractions like The Needles, a series of sharp-looking rocks poking out of the sea (40 minutes), and the flower-filled Ventnor Botanic Garden (15 minutes).

For a break from nature, historical hotspots on the island include Appuldurcombe House (10 minutes), an 18th-century English baroque manor, as well as the old royal residence of Osborne, a former fave of Queen Victoria (20 minutes).

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 (4.9 miles)
  • Brighstone Shop and Museum (9.1 miles)
