we stayed in ninham house last year & loved it so much we booked to go again this year, again we had a lovely time although we did notice that as far as cleanliness goes it did leave some to be desired, it took me about 2hrs to get rid of the cobwebs around the place & being terrified of spiders no way could I have slept with them about, the sink in the upstairs bathroom didn't look like it had seen any cleaning done since we were there last September at least the beds were nice clean even though there was a brown stain on one of the sheets you could see they had been washed so we didn't want to be petty & complain, then the toilet in the downstairs shower room got blocked so we had to unblock that as the reception was closed & we didn't want to be a pain & call the emergency number, we did notice that there was a new fridge & freezer this year must admit we didn't realise that the tumble drier & dish washer were also new until I read it on trip advisor.all was great we had a lovely time al 10 of us (8 adults & 2 children) until we got home & mr oliver Harvey decided to stop us £75 0f our security bond because "we

Stayed at Ninham House for a week 26th July 2013, there was 7 of us in this gorgeous well equipped and spacious house. The staff were really helpful told us of some brilliant places to go with the little one's. Brilliant location for exploring the island - Shanklin and Sandown not far. No noise at night and also the clean lovely outdoor pool was fab after a day out and about, hubby and brother also found the pool tables, the site is clean & safe with beautiful surroundings, just a brilliant holiday had by all of us would highly recommend.

Superb 'night-arrival' packs were waiting outside reception on arrival which had the route and allocated pitch hightlighted. The new shower block was high-quality but we prefered the older one as it was cleaner and had better showers.

Excellent location and plenty of information of walks ect provided by the campsite. We would deffinately recommend staying at this campsite.

Room Tip: New showers are located in the larger of the two areas. We'd recommend staying in the smaller ar...

Spent a night at the camp for eddy access to Shanklin & Sandown. A bit of a walk but not really a problem. Camp was clean, well run & safe. No noise at night. Has the benefit of a lovely outdoor pool with a range of loungers etc. Can recommend.

Recently returned from a lovely week staying at Ninham.
We stayed in one of their static caravans for the second year running and once again found it really good. The vans are well equipped and have everything you need , clean and tidy on arrival and in good condition.
The new toilet block looked really lovely and I did use the washing machines whilst there and found the facilities really good. The only thing I would say is the tokens for the machines are a bit pricy so worth saving washing up to try do one large wash!

The location of the campsite is great, close enough to the village of shanklin without being to near all the touristy parts and close to local shops and a nice pub and beer garden which is just a 20 minute walk away.

The campsite itself is family run and is a lovely relaxed place to stay and well managed. The staff are friendly and helpful and really look after the site well.

We have already booked for next year so looking forward to it!

We are a family of four, children girl (4) boy (6) and dog (1). We camped in a tent and had a wonderful large pitch (most are v large) Jane and hubby the wardens were really helpful and kind. I felt safe here and my children had the freedom to play. The pool was warm and clean, we did not use games room. We can not fault what was not there. Only thing which would be nice is a fenced off dog area as we had at a previous site it would have been nice to let dogs off for a bit of freedom. The lower playground was closed and so were the toilets next to them (these shd be reopened with laundry as too far to walk to top and driving around on site is not preferred). The showers were clean and always hot! We are def going back next year already booked our place!!!
