Thorncross Farm

from £10.00 to £16.00 Family + unit
Select Section

Overview

This is a Certificated Site (CS). These select sites are small, privately run campsites that operates under the Club’s jurisdiction and can only accommodate up to 5 caravans or motorhomes and up to 10 trailer tents or tents, unless express permission has been given by the Club to accommodate more. They range from secluded Hideaways to fully facilitated family friendly sites, and are often found in locations where larger commercial sites are prohibited so you could be camping close to a beach or in the National Park, for example.

The well-spaced pitches are equipped with electric hook ups and water. There is a chemical disposal point and waste bins are provided on site. We allow well-behaved dogs so long as they remain on leads at all times. Dog owners are required to ‘clean up’ and to ensure their pets do not disturb other campers. The site has wide ranging views especially to the north and east. Sunrise over the Downs can be most impressive for the early risers! If you walk south for 0.5m to the cliff at Barnes’ high you will see spectacular sunsets to the west beyond Tennyson Down and the Needles. There is a comprehensive network of local footpaths. Many visitors choose to abandon their vehicles for the day and set out on long circular excursions. It is surprising how far some of them have gone.

This is such a special place to come and stay! Brian really takes pride in his site and it shows, you could play bowls on the grass as it is so well kept, the views are fantastic and you are just a short walk from a breathtaking coastal path. The village of Brighstone has a very well stocked shop full of locally sourced produce. And a pub that serves good food. We've been here before and we will come back again. Thanks Brain..!!!!

This review is for Thorncross Farm

A wonderful CS located on the quieter, west side of the island but within easy reach of Freshwater, Yarmouth, Newport and Ventnor. We spent a blissful two weeks here and couldn't have been happier with our choice. In fact we already have decided to return next year. Each pitch has it's own water tap so make sure you bring the appropriate equipment with you and you won't have to keep filling up aquarolls!! Mr Russell (the site owner) was extremely pleasant and helpful and often came around to make sure we were happy. One word of warning: Don't follow SatNav directions. Continue along Military Road past the Isle of Wight Pearl Centre (on your right if coming from Freshwater). There will be a sign on the left hand side of the road which leads to a grass track across a field to the site.

This review is for Thorncross Farm

This is an extremely well run CS set in a beautiful location and ideal for anyone who enjoys country/ coastal walks, cycling and fishing or just relaxing in peaceful setting with wonderful views. The village of Brighstone is a mile away and Mr Russell has mown a path direct from the site to the footpath. He has also made access to the coastal path along the stunning Military Road easy from the site. Brighstone is pretty village with a grocery shop, post office, newsagent, pub, gift shop, library and church. This CS really is a place for young and old, you can go in any direction and find plenty of interest for all ages. It's an excellent base for exploring the island. Each good sized pitch has electricity and water. We thoroughly recommend it.

This is a wonderful site for anyone wanting rural peace and quiet. Superb views and easy access to the coast and inland footpaths. Very friendly welcome and superb arrival preparations. This site deserves to be supported. Now that I’ve found this site I will be back for a longer stay.
