Beach

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.

Fantastic site09/14/2019

    Beautiful site. Very clean. Peaceful. Large pitches. Good facilities. Lovely large heated pool. Shower block modern & extremely clean. Undercover washing up facilities. Laundry room. Games & tv room with free wi-fi. Welcome pack from Ninham was very useful & contained all you needed to know about the site & the island - also contained two bin bags - one for general rubbish, the other for recyclables. Children’s outdoor play area. Loved our stay here & would happily stay here again if we revisit the island.

    Disliked: 

    On day of leaving you have to be off the site by 10am. Feel this is too early - midday would be a better time. Most tourers have tents/awnings which are wet from dew in the mornings & you therefore would have to pack it away wet which is far from ideal. We packed ours away the night before to overcome this but a couple of hours extra on the day of leaving would have given time for them to dry off.

From the manager...

Hello - thanks for your positive review :)

Just to clarify check out time, at this time of year ( after the school holidays) we would have been more than happy to allow you stay on your pitch a little longer, if you had just asked at reception :)

    Fabulously clean toilets and lots of them. Lovely clean, hot showers. The whole site was clean, litter free and well maintained. Plenty of information in the pamphlet. The fact that there is a pool and games room with free wifi is a bonus. We will 100% be back again next year.

  • Liked: 

    Great facilities, best shower block I've ever used, although it's a big site so they might not be very near your pitch. My 6 year old loved the pool. We were there end Aug to beginning Sept so we had a couple of days when other families had gone home, and the pool was quiet then. Grounds are very well maintained.

    Disliked: 

    Not much to dislike, just a couple of minor things - car got filthy as the long lane is very dusty, and lock away your bread as a carb-loving fox will take it overnight.

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
