Thorness Bay Holiday Park: 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.

Please note

Single-sex parties of three or more people under 25 are not permitted on site.

Average campsite, not the cleanest. Disappointing for Park Dean.07/17/2021

    Evening entertainment

    Disliked: 

    Female toilets locked and code required. This was often annoying.

    Toilets frequently without toilet rolls.

    Toilets frequently blocked full of excrement and dirty.

    Showers on short annoying 30 second timer and unable to adjust temperature.

    Showers and toilets often dirty.

    Washbasins without hand wash or soap.

    Pitch was extremely noisy throughout the night, obviously out of Park Dean's control.

  • Liked: 

    first time at t his resort, we were on a slope that once all the rain had finished it was very soggy, and the rain had completely run down our pitch area,
    the entertainment was good for children but found that not a lot for the adult, execpt bingo which i managed to get my husband to join in. the entertainment for the evening could have done with more thought, the vocialist were good but they were out of step with their fellow collegues. games where good to join in with.
    we are looking at pitching with my daughter in sept, not sure about booking with parkdean

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)

National Trust

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