Arrived at Thorness Bay very early on on check in day so knew that we were not going to be able to get in our accommodation but because we were in the safari tents thought we would go and have a look at their location,size etc.. These tents are located within the touring section close to reception commanding wonderful views... More

Just returned from a 3 night stay involving a large children's sporting group. I went with no real expectations around site as have had mixed experience of holiday parks at home and abroad in the past. The weekend was very much geared towards kids enjoying themselves so would have been happy to put up with even most basic accommodation and... More

We have just arrived back from a weekend rugby tour. We took 325 people hiring 74 caravans. We have not had one compliant from any of our party just compliments about Thorness Bay. All 74 caravans were fantastic, every single member of staff couldn't do enough for us. We've had such a great stay, thank you to all at Thorness... More

We have just returned, stayed 4 nights and would recommend! I can only think of 3 negative things, but fairly minor really. The staff are fantastic, friendly, helpful and a delight to have around, the children's entertainers 'team Stars' this year are fantastic and LOVE children, they are relaxed, know how to manage them and have eyes in the back...

I haven't visited the Isle of Wight since my childhood and decided to book Thorness Bay through Sun Holidays. This park is literally out in the sticks which is something I like getting away from the hustle and bustle of normal urban life. We arrived around 1.00pm and couldn't get to our chalet until 4.00, so decided to take the... More

A fantastic review. I am happy that you found the park to your liking and were able to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the wooded areas and also discover the bay which, I agree, is great for the views and also for the kids to explore but certainly not for making sandcastles I’m afraid. It is nice to receive... More

This is the second site we have stayed at with this company on the Isle of Wight. It is quite away from most of the tourist areas which tend to be on the other side of the island, even it's own beach is a hike or drive down from the bottom of the site. The result being that things are... More

Thank you for a good report of your stay with us. It is good to read that you had an enjoyable time with us and that, overall, the chalet was of good quality and clean. The sign you refer to is to try to prevent half dressed males walking through the boathouse restaurant to the pool in their swimwear as... More

Good to be able to book a pet friendly Gold caravan which was of a high standard with super central heating. Park is in a beautiful setting and maintained to a high standard. Although swimming pool is oldish it is clean, warm and a sensible shape for a swim although could do with new lockers! Pool staff were excellent. Entertainment... More

It is great to read another positive review of the park and your stay with us. It pleases everyone here that they all helped to make your break with us a good one and to read such nice comments. Pool lockers have been ordered and, in hindsight, should have bee ordered earlier so that they were here from the start... More

Thank you for posting your review and it is good to read that you all had a really enjoyable time with us and enjoyed the facilities and found the team to be friendly.

We stayed here a week ago and would recommend it. We booked at the same time as some friends of ours and once we had both booked called reservations to ask that our booking be linked so we would be close to each other which they said they would try to do but could not promise... anyway we were delighted...
