Best campsites for the Isle of Wight AONB

Here is our pick of the Alan Rogers Assessors, expert-recommended campsites for the Isle of Wight Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The Isle of Wight Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty covers about half the island and has been recognised since 1992. It encompasses many different types of landscape, mostly characterised by chalk which has shaped the topography, the natural habitats and flora and fauna.

To the south, there are wonderful panoramas from the downs above Ventnor and the Undercliff. Enjoy the Tennyson Heritage Coast and chalk downs in the southwest, with epic sea views across the Needles chalk stacks and dinosaur footprints at Brook Bay. There’s the delightful Hamstead Heritage Coast overlooking the Solent, a peaceful shoreline interspersed by little creeks, cliffs and a wooded interior where red squirrels still find sanctuary. The Osborne Coast, with its exotic vegetation and Victorian structures, is famous for its royal connections.

Some 80% of the island is dedicated to farming, with plenty of traditionally maintained fields and hedgerows. There are plenty of chalk cliffs, sandy bays, wooded pastures, hay meadows and muddy creeks to ensure rich and varied wildlife.
