    Static Superior 8 berth caravan White Cliff Bay Isle of Wight

    We recently had a lovely holiday in a 8 berth static caravan on the Isle of Wight. The caravan is on a Away Resorts caravan site near Bembridge on the Isle of Wight. It is a large park with lots of facilities, there is a bar/restaurant, pizzas to takeaway, indoor and outdoor pools, an entertainment complex where they put on shows, comedians, singers etc., an outdoor cinema, archery, play park and other entertainment for the kids, a well stocked shop, laundry, hairdressers etc. It really is an "all singing all dancing" park. We can't vouch for any of the facilities because we didn't use them due to the covid risk, we preferred to eat in at our caravan throughout our stay. The private sandy beach is very close but down a very steep and well made path and coming back up is not for the faint hearted, you need to be fit but it was lovely for a socially distanced wander early evening.

    Nearby by there is an airfield and light aircraft do fly over the site occasionally especially at weekend but we didn't find this a problem in fact we quite enjoyed watching them. At the airfield which is a short drive away there is a Propellor Inn where you can get a meal and drinks but we didn't try it on this holiday, although we have in the past and found it quite acceptable. Everywhere around the island is reachable within around an hour via car or there is a good bus service. The nearest resort is Ryde with its long sandy beaches, also Sandown and Shanklin are quite close again they have beautiful beaches. The Old Town at Shanklin is particularly lovely with thatched roofed buildings and a delightful Chine to wander down. Ventnor is also worth a visit with the lovely Spy Glass Inn right on the edge of the sea again we didn't visit it this time because of covid but we have had many a lovely drink and meal sat outside looking out to sea.

    The Isle of Wight is a delight to drive around with its good roads and there is a maximum 50 mph speed limit on the roads away from the built up areas.

    The caravan park have lots of different grades of self catering accommodation to choose from ready erected tents, two berth caravans, small caravans, larger caravan, lodges, chalets, even rock star themed lodges, we chose an 8 berth superior caravan which was very comfortable and although we didn't choose the grade with a verandah we got one anyway which was a nice surprise. Our ten day break cost just under £500 and included the return ferry for car and passengers from Portsmouth to Fishbourne which is about half an hour drive from the site.

    I won't describe the caravan in full because I have done so in the video which you can view here.

    Thank you for that review Graham. It's useful to us who don't normally consider them because we have a motorhome. We don't look at caravan park sites to get their 'unbiased' descriptions of thier facilities. But for a winter break in particular it would remove the nuisance of heating the motorhome, and of course the sheer volume of room in that caravan is more than even in a KonTiki.
    I don't suppose a lot of the normal tourist attractions are open these days, in our winter of discontent. Still, we can use our Bus Passes to sit on the top deck at the front of a bus and tour around all day.
    Nil desperandum. In loco parenthesis: My old man's in inverted commas.

      Now you can appreciate why my dad chose to retire on the IOW.
      Carpe diem! :)
