Isle Of Wight

With a magic all its own and reputed to be one of England’s sunniest and warmest locations, there’s so much to see and do whilst staying at one of our caravan parks or holiday parks on the Isle of Wight. Read More...

Here’s our guide to the Top Ten Things To Do whilst on one of our Isle of Wight caravan holidays.

1. Cycle the Troll Trail
The enticingly-named Troll Trail between Merstone and Shide, is a well-surfaced, traffic-free cycle route, perfect for magically-minded children who will love the troll carvings and other pathside artworks.

2. Be enchanted by Blackgang Chine
Blackgang Chine is a family-owned theme park of sorts. It is an eccentric mix of rides, goblins and fairies, dinosaurs, nursery rhyme characters, cowboys and Indians all set within rambling Victorian cliff-top gardens.

3. Get a close up view of the Needles
For a close up view of the dramatic Needles Rocks and Lighthouse take the pleasure boat for a dramatic trip around the rocks and lighthouse and panoramic views of Alum Bay sand cliffs.

4. Glimpse at the private life of the royal family
Queen Victoria created Osborne House as a family palace of extreme opulence, filled with original furnishings and priceless artworks. It provides a real glimpse into what royal family life was like 200 years ago. The grounds offer stunning views of the Solent and children will love the Swiss Cottage, equipped with child-size furniture.

5. Enjoy the tranquillity of Shanklin Chine
Shanklin Chine is an historic coastal gorge of great natural beauty. It is a rich haven of rare plants, woodland, wildlife and an enchanting waterfall. A place to take time to just sit, look and listen.

6. Charter a yacht in Cowes
Take to the sea on a skippered yacht, and feel the exhilaration of skimming across the water. Failing that, why not just soak up the atmosphere in Cowes Week at one of the many national and international sailing events when the waterfront is a kaleidoscope of colourful sails in early August.

7. Soak up the Mediterranean climate at the Botanic Gardens in Ventnor
Brushed by the warmth of the Gulf Stream and nestled in the microclimate of Undercliff, Ventnor has long been recognised as having a unique climate, more akin to the Mediterranean. This enables a wide variety of plants considered too tender for much of mainland Britain to be grown. The garden is unrivalled for its collections of subtropical plants grown unprotected out of doors, and is a great place for the family to visit and experience the world-famous foliage it provides.

8. Climb the ramparts of Carisbrooke Castle
There are all the ingredients here for a great value family day out in the Isle of Wight. Children will love dressing up as Norman soldiers or Civil War troopers, and meeting the castle’s famous donkeys, while for the grown-ups, the new Edwardian-style Princess Beatrice Garden is a joy to explore.

9. Tree-climbing in a secret location
All ages can enjoy safe tree climbing in beautiful surroundings. Hang out in the canopy, rest in a tree top hammock, hang upside down and see the countryside from a new perspective.

10. Rock-pooling at Bonchurch
Bonchurch is a quintessentially English village nestling below St Boniface Down, the highest point on the island. The beach is a mix of sand and shingle, and low tide leaves rock pools which are just crying out to be explored.
