Brighstone Holiday Centre is a fun family escape on the south west coast of the Isle of Wight, within the Tennyson Down Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The site is open from early April until the middle of October, and offers a range of accommodation options. Pitches are available for guests with campervans, touring caravans, motorhomes, and tents, while self-catering chalets and bed and breakfast accommodation are also available.

Electric hook up pitches are available at Brighstone Holiday Centre, along with toilets and showers, and a laundrette.

There is plenty of open space at the site, perfect for families who enjoy playing ball games and other activities. For children there is a play area with a sandpit, swings, a playhouse, and some other features. The park also boasts an indoor swimming pool, which is open during the peak months of the holiday season, from May to September. The pool complex has an indoor seating area for those not wanting to use the pool while their families do so.

Two acres of the site have been left to grow naturally; this area is designated as the dog walking area for those who decide to take the family pets along to stay at Brighstone Holiday Centre.

The park sits on the Isle of Wight Coastal Path, which means that heading out to explore the surrounding area couldn’t be easier. This south western section of the coast is also popular with fossil diggers, and the beaches along the coastline often see amateurs and professionals seeing if they can dig up anything of historical significance. When the tide is out, preserved dinosaur footprints can be viewed in the rock formations along the coast, while the beach and the sea is safe for rock pooling, paddling, and swimming.

Many guests choose to enjoy some time going fishing during their holidays, either sea fishing, hoping to catch mackerel and sea bass. or trying their luck in the neighbouring rivers and streams.

While the Isle of Wight Coast Path is popular with walkers, many choose to travel by bicycle in order to see as much of the coastline as they possibly can.

The Isle of Wight itself is a relatively small location, so almost everywhere on the island is accessible for a day trip. Visit Newport, the largest town, which is found in the centre of the island, for a cinema, leisure centre, and museum. There are also plenty of shops and outdoor spaces for families to enjoy. Visit Carisbrook castle, which is close to Newport, for an enjoyable family day out and fantastic views over the island from the castle walls.

Many holidaymakers choose to travel to the east side of the Isle of Wight, where you can visit Sandown, which boasts great beaches and a brilliant water park. For more seaside towns, visit Shanklin and Ventnor, both popular for all the traditional delights of English seaside holidays.

Brighstone Holiday Centre is near Tennyson Down, a grassy chalk hill overlooking the sea, popular with walkers and holidaymakers who fancy a stroll with spectacular sea views. It's named after the poet Alfred Lord Tennyson, and most people like to walk to his granite monument, a large cross on the top of the hill. From here you can see Old Harry Rocks, The Isle of Purbeck, Yarmouth and the Solent. The Tennyson Trail walking route goes through here.

Alternatively, if you are looking for outdoor activities you can find the best walking routes, bike rides and sights inland. If you enjoy playing golf while taking in the sea air, you will love discovering the exceptional golf courses found on the Isle of Wight.
