Alan Rogers Review

This delightful small park, with 33 pitches in addition to a large camping area, is family owned and set in the grounds of an old country house which was once frequently visited by Dr Arnold, the subject of Tom Brown’s Schooldays. Watch out for the red squirrels! The owners have terraced the grass area for touring units and have created 26 large and level, well spaced, fully serviced hardstanding pitches all with impressive views over the Solent. The remaining 14 pitches on a sloping grass area are for caravans and tents – these have no electricity. To one side there are 46 holiday homes. At the bottom of the park, a gate leads onto the promenade and the beach which is sand, shingle and seaweed, so popular sailing, windsurfing, fishing and crabbing.

Just five minutes from the East Cowes ferry terminal, the site makes an ideal location for Cowes and Osborne House, and has good views of the cruise ships sailing in and out of Southampton. A chain ferry across the River Medina operates between East Cowes and bustling West Cowes famous for its sailing events and with its numerous shops, pubs and restaurants.


At the top of the park, a heated toilet block provides the usual facilities including some spacious cubicles with washbasins en-suite. Good suite for disabled visitors with baby changing. Laundry facilities. Heated outdoor pool and paddling pool with sun terrace (22/5-14/9). Club with restaurant, bar and outdoor terrace serving good value meals (mostly home made, 1/5-20/9), plus family entertainment in season (23/5-29/8). Small adventure-style playground. Games room. WiFi throughout (free).
