Alan Rogers Review

Heathfield is a pleasant contrast to many of the other sites on the Isle of Wight in that it is a ‘no frills’ sort of place, very popular with tent campers, cyclists and small camper vans. Despite its name, it is no longer a working farm. A large, open meadow provides 60 large, level pitches, all with 16A electricity. Two small fenced areas provide traffic free zones for backpackers and cyclists’ tents. There is no shop as you are only eight minutes walk from the centre of Freshwater. The site overlooks Colwell Bay and across the Solent towards Milford-on-Sea and Hurst Castle.

A playing field for ball games also has three picnic tables and two communal barbecues. There is a wild flower meadow with the perimeter mown for dog walking. It is ideal for visiting attractions on the western side of the island including Totland and Freshwater Bays, The Needles and Old Battery, Compton Down and Mottistone Manor Garden. The Military road which runs from Freshwater Bay to Saint Catherine’s Point gives spectacular coastal views.


The main sanitary facilities are housed in a modern, ingeniously customised, prefabricated unit and include hot showers and baby changing. A second similar unit has WCs and washbasins in cubicles plus facilities for disabled visitors. Laundry facilities. Motorhome services. Gas supplies. Ice pack service. Playing field. Bicycle hire arranged. WiFi throughout (charged). No commercial vehicles are accepted. Gate locked 22.30-07.00.
