Just returned from a fortnight stay at Waverley Park – what a fantastic site! It’s our second time here and we’ve already booked for 2013 (just like we did last year on our first visit)
Everyone is so friendly, helpful and welcoming. We arrived a little later on our first day this year – but on our last visit, the guys that look after the pitches and grounds even took our caravan and sited it for us so we didn’t have to bother after a long journey!
There is a water supply, electricity connection and your own drainage point to your pitch side, which in the main is a hard standing (gravel) with grass for awnings and is always well maintained. The shower block is always clean and we have never had any issues with waiting for showers etc, which are always nice and hot! You also have the pot washing are etc. but we don’t use it although it was always occupied so must be ok and also looks clean and well kept.
The Waverley Inn is on site which has a bar, games room including pool, table tennis and video games. There are different activities in the bar area every evening of the week – something for everyone to enjoy and they also serve good food too – including breakfasts from 9am – 11am. Children are always made welcome by the staff and nothing is too much trouble.
In the gardens there is a Children’s play area and an outdoor swimming pool with a paddling / shallow pool and a slide – great fun.
At Waverley Park you are walking distance to East Cowes and Cowes via the chain ferry (free for foot passengers and cycles / £2 for cars).
It is also a very short drive from the Red Funnel terminal - less than 5 minutes!
We found the park an excellent base to discover the rest of this beautiful island, most of which is easily within a 30 - 40 minute drive..
Thanks for a great stay and looking forward to coming back next year already – well done everyone at Waverley Park!!
