My partner and I and our 15 year old doggie have just returned from a gorgeous few days on the very sunny Isle of Wight. We have never stayed on this side of the Island before and will most definitely be back as soon as we can. The campsite is immaculate, the pitches are constantly maintained to ensure the grass is short and if the pitches are less than perfect the wardens would rather give the grass time to recover and not accept casual bookings than to try and make an extra few pounds. The wardens were off site when we arrived which was not a problem as there were instructions on the Reception hut and we had also received an email confirming out pitch. As with any responsible campsite there are some rules and regulations that have to be adhered to, mainly to do with measurements between pitches but this is for Health and Safety Regulations and thus for the benefit of all patrons and certainly we welcome these.
The Wardens Bob and Gaye came to our pitch as soon as they were back on site to welcome us and to let us know where the nearest takeaways, town, dog friendly pubs and bus services all were and genuinely couldn't have been more friendly or helpful but without being 'in your face' or intrusive. As other reviews have mentioned the facilities are immaculate in all aspects including the beautiful dog meadow where you are able to let your four legged family members off their leads for a good old run in a safe environment. We purposely chose a week between the children going back to school after Half Term and before the Isle of Wight Festival and in our opinion chose well, the site itself was very quiet but those who were on site were more than happy to pass the time of day. If you want a full on activity led site with music, entertainment and a clubhouse then you need to look elsewhere, however if you want a quiet relaxing break away in a beautiful setting then look no further. Thank you for a lovely stay.
