Family-friendly site

General

  • Isle of Wight family park with plenty of organised activities
  • Indoor pool, bar and evening entertainment
  • Kids' club for children up to 11 years old

A lunchtime drink on the terrace of the Boathouse bar watching the white sails of the yachts zipping across the water, a hop and a skip down the leafy path to the beach for the afternoon, or a fun-filled night of live entertainment in the Showbar… there are many ways to relax at Thorness Bay Holiday Park in Cowes.

Whippersnappers will love whooshing down the slide into the indoor pool before trying out a bit of snorkelling and rollerblading, and they may disappear for some time into the various kids’ clubs, which offer funtastic activities for kids up to 11.

The whole family can get stuck into a range of sports on the all-weather court, and during the organised sessions you could chance your arm at archery or even learn to wield a crossbow.

To complement the usual amenities, there’s a shop and laundry room, an outdoor playground for the little ones, amusements, darts and a pool table – and the occasional bingo session thrown in for fun.

Lovely views over the fields from the touring section and …26/10/2020

    Lovely views over the fields from the touring section and the coastal path passes right through the site so we were able to do a fantastic walk to Cowes. We also walked in the opposite direction to Newtown, which is also beautiful but, sadly, much of the coastal path is on the road, so it’s not quite as enjoyable as the walk to Cowes. We were self sufficient so didn’t use the facilities but they looked very clean and the staff were all friendly and helpful.

    Disliked: 

    Wi-fi was very expensive, unlike other Parkdean sites we have stayed on. Take chocks as not all pitches are level!

    The very warm welcome we received at reception on check in, the surroundings and views, the lovely coastal walk and the price.

    Disliked: 

    The showers, which were very clean, the fact they only stay on for a few seconds before you have the press the button again. Simplist way was to keep my hand depressed on the button which makes washing a little tricky - otherwise all good.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Visitors will find lots of yachts and powerboats to drool over in Cowes harbour, and the town is also home to Osborne House, the country retreat of Queen Victoria and her brood. It’s well worth a nose around this magnificent house and its lovely gardens, and the Victorian afternoon teas aren’t half bad either…

Since the Isle of Wight is such a bijou island, it doesn’t take long to reach other top attractions such as Carisbrooke Castle, the posh pile where King Charles I was imprisoned, and the island’s heritage steam railway, which regularly runs themed events.

For those who fancy a change from the beach at Thorness Bay, the shallow waters at Colwell Bay beach, about 25 minutes away by car, are great for swimming, as well as watersports such as jetskiing and windsurfing.

Must see

  • Carisbrooke Castle (6.2 kilometres)
  • Osborne House (6.6 kilometres)
  • Isle of Wight Steam Railway (10.8 kilometres)

  • Newtown Old Town Hall (3.8 kilometres)
  • Mottistone Manor Garden (10.3 kilometres)
