Spacious, comfortable and equipped to a high standard

5 of 5
We had a thoroughly relaxing stay at the Dairy Barn. Slept really well in the comfortable beds and tranquility of the country lane. The children particularly loved the garden. Sally is a very welcoming and helpful manager. It was our first visit to the Isle of Wight - plenty of opportunities for fresh air - walking, cycling and beaches. We will definitely be back again in future.

Sorry to Leave!!!

5 of 5
This was my first time to the Isle of wight (the rest of my party had all been before) and i enjoyed every minute! The caravan was spacious, clean and located the 'ideal' distance to get to the playground, pool, shop and entertainment (and with 2 kids in tow, we spent a fair amount of time on that route!). It was equipped with the stuff what we needed, including patio furniture so we could enjoy breakfast in the sun! We used the pools at the both parks (Landguard & Lower Hyde) and they were clean and well managed by the lifeguards. They do get busy, but the wristband system gives everyone a chance. The park is about a 10 minute walk (5 min drive) away from Shanklin beach, where there is loads to do including crazy golf, kids rides and amazing ice cream - thoroughly recommend the salted caramel. There is plenty to do around the island and would recommend: - Blackgang Chine & Robin Hill Family theme parks (you can buy dual entry ticket for both that works out more economical). - Hovercraft watching at Ryde (think i was more excited than the kids) - The Needles - great views and lots of entertainment (free parking for national trust members) - Eating out - Bargeman's Rest (Newport), great setting and good pub grub - Bodega (Ryde), great hot chocolate and cake!! - The Waterfront (Shanklin), brilliant atmosphere and service. And we had a great caravan to use as our base, which was the icing on the cake really. We had an amazing time and were sorry to leave!! Dave M
