This review is for Adgestone

This site needs a different access and all the buildings and facilities are below standard when compared with other C&CC and CC sites. The Eastern approach along Lower Adgestone Road should be signed as NOT SUITABLE FOR CARAVANS AND LARGE VEHICLES. There are no adequate passing points. Even from Sandown direction, narrow roads and a sharp right turn at the Tee Junction make for difficulties for all but experianced drivers. SATNAVS give wrong turning information at this junction.

This review is for Adgestone

Overall we had a very pleasant stay and would definitely visit again! The staff are all friendly, although the manager did give the impression that he was running an army camp at times! That said, he does a great job of keeping the site well maintained and in top order.The Squirrel cafe is fantastic; the staff are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. As for the food, the quality is superb and is fantastic value (it's worth visiting the site just for the cafe)! Overall this is a lovely, quiet site and we had a lovely time. Sadly, there are just a couple of little niggles that could do with revising! The shower & toilet block is a little 'tired' and needs a good re-vamp. There needs to be more cubicles as I imagine there would be constant queues when the site is full. Also, we were very disappointed to find that, despite the lovely warm weather, the site management would not open the pool. It was explained that this was to do with staffing, as a lifeguard is required at all times. We understand if this is indeed the case, but surely arrangements should be made to ensure full cover of the facilities being advertised. The only other thing to be aware of is, DO NOT FOLLOW A SAT NAV! We can't stress this enough! We made that very mistake and ended up in some very tight spots, before eventually having to do an incredibly difficult about turn on a farm courtyard. This was bad enough with our small 2 berth caravan, but anything larger would certainly have had major problems. We recommend following the Sandown road and turning left as you pass through Lake (the site is signposted). This is by far the simplest way to get there, although be aware that there are a few speed bumps to negotiate! Don't be put off by the minor cons, as the pros definitely outweigh them. This is definitely a site worth visiting, and we certainly will do so again!

This review is for Adgestone

From the moment we arrived I had a feeling that our stay would not be as enjoyable as our previous visit 4 years ago. The first thing we noticed was how empty the site was. When we made our previous visit nearly all of the pitches were occupied. This time there were whole sections completely empty. The installation of a gate across the main access road appeared to serve no purpose whatsoever except inconvenience for campers staying on the site. The welcome we received was far less than friendly, and during our stay it seemed that campers were more of an inconvenience to staff who, whilst mostly absent, seemed to forget that their site was full of people on holiday. I had been looking forward to lazy afternoons by the pool with the children but that also went out the window due to much reduced availability of the pool coupled with incredibly officious life guards. The shower blocks were also ina poor state with showers that dribbled water and dirty sinks and toilets. Come on Camping & Caravanning Club, this used to be one of our favourite sites and is so well placed on the Island that it should be one of the best sites to visit. However, unless some changes are made we will look for an alternative site next time we want to camp on the Island.

This review is for Adgestone

The directions from the club website are vague at best, even following the suggested route access is tight, halfway down the road you're faced with a sign saying 6'6" max width so you have to have faith and keep going. We eventually arrived at the site at around 11.30am and I know your not supposed to get there before 12 noon but I was hoping for a bit of flexibility, hmmm not on this site, we had to park up blocking in cars parked on the visitors car parks, there were plenty of pitches free and the site had at least 4 wardens wandering around but it was definitely going to be 12 noon before anyone was going to book us on, it would have have taken 5 minutes to sort us out and move me off the entrance area. Once on the pitch and level, the site slopes quite a lot so take some chocks, we explored the site, facilities are good and were fairly clean and tidy the showers are excellent, the shop on site stocked a decent range of provisions and does good takeaway food, the breakfast was great value. There is a fantastic little fishing pond, we caught fish all afternoon, the site has a number of play areas for kids, plenty of taps, and a fantastic swimming pool. which was well organised, warm and clean. We had a few issues, the ?5 deposit for the key to the disabled facilities wasn't refunded, so that appears to be a ?5 payment, having to pay for wifi on any site is taking the mick and should be addressed by the club, access to and from this particular site is awkward because of the narrow lanes, and it's location means driving to get anywhere. Overall I was left feeling disappointed with the site, not for any single reason in particular but it just didn't leave me feeling like I was staying on a site owned by the club I'm a member of. Pros - good facilities, swimming pool, fishing pond, on site takeaway. Cons - location, access, unwelcoming atmosphere, TV reception.
