Camping in the Isle of Wight

We are wanting to go camping in the Isle of Wight in August, can anybody advise me of any good campsites or voucher codes for park resorts as i have seen a nice one but park want almost £200 for the pitch for a week which i think is quite expensive, or isn't it?? Dont mind if we just stay in a farm field as long as it's within walking distance to the beach as we have young kids. Also wanting to find a cheap crossing, if anybody can help it would be much appreciated, Thanks

Hi, i have done just about as much searching on this as you can think of and i would be happy to tell you what i have found out since your request is exactly the same as us.
Basically, we went to the Nodes Point(park resort) at St, Helens Bay last year. The situation of the site is brilliant but we found that the price has gone up a lot this year and so we looked else where. However they offer a great price for the ferry crossing and since we have a caravan it is quite a good deal.
Then you come to a situation where you have two choices.
1- you go to park resorts and they book your ferry OR
2- you go to a cheaper site but then you have to book your ferry
Then you find that they are not that different in price for the week

So then you look at all the park resorts sites, i would say that the ones down the east side are better and that leaves you a choice of 3. This year we have gone for the Languard one, it is the cheapest of the 3 and nicer looking site, it has cost us £79 for the ferry (otherwise £108-£180 direct through wightlink)with the caravan, BUT the comprimise is that the beach is not as near as the nodes point. I dont know which one you have looked at but generally Nodes point is great for the beach as it is close but quite quiet area and no town to walk to, and lower hyde/languard are a bit further away from the beach but nearer to the town so it depends what you want.

Hope i havnt written too much and bored you but please feel free to ask anymore questions as i know more sites, but for us the ferry then cost too much

some other sites do book your ferry but out of all the places we enquired about, the park resorts site offers the best ferry price by far

Thank you very much miffy you've been really helpful, i thought with park you had to stay for 14 days to get free ferry? I haven't looked into it in great deal as friends want to go aswell so i will pass info on to them. I'll probably contact you again if you dont mind, Thanks Annabel

Sorry this is not much help but we stayed on the Park ( lower Hyde) site a couple of years ago and had a great time but on trying to rebook for last year we could not get a very good deal so we booked up at Bude. The Park site had various issues with the toilet block which caused a problem but the beaches and the attractions were worth going.Sandown also Black gang chime was very enjoyable.

I had noticed the advertisement for a free ferry but wasnt sure how you got it, and those sorts of deals dont apply to the caravan, we said with park re giving such good deals on the ferry crossing it wont give the smaller sites much business as they cant get the smae discounts.

Sorry we always take the car as we have windbreaks footballs and loads of other gear. I would Imagine it would be feasable to walk to the beach as we did see people walking with there beach gear. For shops....just outside Lower Hyde there is a Lidl and 2 mins further down there ia a Somerfield. Hope you have a great time it does get windy at times.

just to let you know, we have booked at pondwell, Seaview - we've been told it's a good site so we'll have to wait and see. Just need to find a cheap ferry crossing now!!!!
