My wife, the lad & I decided to have a break though the February 2013 half term. We booked through Red Funnel holiday offers at a fabulous price for 4 nights including the return ferry crossings. The cost was to good to be true or was it. We expected a clean but dated caravan showing signs of use due to use having our dog with us, but was AMAZED to find that we was given the keys to a very clean well maintained double glazed and central heated van. All the essential cooking utensils, crockery, tv and bedding were included, The only thing not there was toilet rolls but had brought some with us so no problems (noticed on another review). Being February it was cold outside but we found the van very cosy. As our visit is low season the bar, pool, entertainment etc. were not up and running so cannot comment but by the way that this family run site is managed, I am sure they will be to the same high standards as the van and the grounds.This is a dog friendly site and having a gate at the bottom of the park to get down to the esplanade made it easy to go walkies! For the children, just out though that gate to the right there is also a good play park but younger ones would need to be supervised as it is very close to the sea front. My family and I want to visit the IOW again later in the year and willingly want to stay here again.

Hi, I'm so pleased we exceeded you expectations! We have replaced all our caravans since we took over and only let the double glazed/central heated vans in winter as they are so cosy and warm.

Dogs are especially welcome and half our fleet is given over to dogs and their owners. If you do come back in summer then your dog will be welcome everywhere except the pool (obviously). We especially like dog to come to the pub as they are part of the family, we even have free dog chews and dog bowls available in the bar.
We're over the moon with the big, new council play area on the Esplanade and have just renovated and improved our play area to keep up the standards.
Take care and see you again soon!
