Lately, I have asked myself: just what we are getting for about £6500 + a year? I was fully aware of the running costs when I bought the caravan, but I did not consider/budget for these ever, annual escalating costs. (Now it costs about £130.00 per week) to run, and it's alright to say that that the site is open...

We did a Sun holiday in October half term. The park itself is easy to find. Our Bronze accommodation was ready on arrival and had just been cleaned. The blind in bathroom was found to be broken whilst they cleaned so they arranged the maintenance people to fix it within the hour. Caravan was basic but had all we needed....

Arrived at Thorness Bay to be greeted by polite and cheerful reception staff. The caravan was of platinum standard set in a quiet part of the park, all very clean and tidy with everything you needed, a real home from home. We used the restaurant once, the food was very good, and had a lovely view down to the bay....

We have been using Thorness Bay for a number of years now, mainly as a base to visit friends on the island and just to relax and recharge. One of the big draws is the onsite restaurant but although the food is a good quality the waiting time has increased over the last few years, last year (October, end of...

We visited in August 2016, and although the park was at full capacity, we had a great family holiday. Although we stayed in a Bronze plus caravan, we were pleased by how well maintained our accommodation was, and we loved the fact we could see the Solent from our kitchen window! We've been staying at Landguard and Thorness Bay since...

The caravan was nice and comfortable and the staff especially Gareth was lovely with the family and very helpful. The entertainment was fun for the kids and would recommend for other people to stay. Will visit again.

The caravan was adequate and comfortable and the staff especially Pat was lovely with the kids and very helpful. The entertainment was mind blowing for the kids and would recommend for other acquaintances to stay. There was only one problem the toilets in the complex were not adequate and needed a good clean.

Booked the sun holiday on Isle of Wight. We arrived early Monday, we went to reception and met Karen. She said we had the use of facilities straight away and even got us in our caravan early. Thank you! The site is very pretty, loads of trees and grass so you don't feel it's too commercialised. Two minute walk to...

Overall pluses: Staff are friendly Good site space Site appeared cared for Not so pluses: Shop staff don't know how to smile and rush you out even with ten minutes before closing, which is odd, as it takes moments to walk round it The good bits for touring: It was out of season so we choose our spot Only a...
