Castlehaven Caravan Site

Castlehaven Caravan Site is a beautiful holiday destination, close to Saint Catherine’s Point in the southernmost section of the Isle of Wight. The park is open from early April until the end of September, and has a small number of luxurious holiday homes available for hire. All of the holiday homes at Castlehaven Caravan Site are equipped with the best modern appliances to ensure guests enjoy the highest level of comfort and enjoyment during their stay.

The park is ideally situated for guests looking to discover the southern coast of the Isle of Wight, although the whole island is accessible for those that don’t mind driving during their trip.
Right on the doorstep of Castlehaven Caravan Site guests will find a beach, which is great for relaxing as well as for swimming. Many guests enjoy taking picnics on the beach while looking out for ferries and other vessels crossing the English Channel. If you're feeling adventurous, boat hire is available nearby, so you can go off exploring the coastline of the Isle of Wight yourselves or maybe even enjoy some sea fishing.

Back on dry land, the park sits in a large section of natural and unspoiled countryside, and most of this area is open for exploration, both along the popular trails as well as off the beaten track. Walking and cycling are popular ways to get around, while pony trekking is also available for those looking to try the horse riding experience alongside their sightseeing.
The park has a popular café where guests can enjoy a range of food and drink, including freshly caught seafood and much more. Afternoon teas can be organised for guests looking to relax and enjoy the views out across the countryside and the sea.

A short drive to the east takes guests to the seaside towns of Shanklin and Ventnor, where you will find convenience stores along with quirky local businesses selling a range of goods. If you need to find a more modern town with popular high street stores and entertainments, it's best to head into Newport in the centre of the island, where you will find leisure and cultural activities and plenty of places to shop, eat, and drink.

Sandown, further around the east coast, is a popular Isle of Wight seaside holiday resort and has a theme park as well as other attractions. There are various golf courses found across the island that are open to the public, with all of them offering exceptional views of the area as well as a challenging round of golf. There's even a small zoo that's well worth a visit.

When you visit the Isle of Wight you can see a number of Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in addition to the one where the park is situated, while on the north coast a section of Heritage Coast looks out across the Solent and to the Dorset coast of the mainland.

Castlehaven Caravan Site is the ideal holiday destination for families looking for a quiet escape within reach of an exciting range of activities and attractions. Whether you want a break where they can switch off from the rest of the world or explore the whole of the Isle of Wight, the choice is yours.

Just a short walk from Castlehaven is the famous St Catherine's Lighthouse, the 27 metre structure set in miles of unspoilt coastline is still an operational lighthouse and met office weather station.

Blackgang Chine

A favourite especially for young children is Blackgang Chine just outside Niton. One of the first holiday attractions of Great Britain Blackgang Chine has seen many changes over the years due to land slips and coupled with its natural beauty this makes it a unique fantasy park.

can be reached by footpath which is opposite Blackgang Viewpoint car park. This is the second highest point on The Island at 237m {777ft} above sea level and makes for a wonderful walk.
