Additional notes

Our site is ideally situated for peace, away from the tourism side of the island. However only 20 minutes away(by car) to the sandy beaches of Sandown/ Shanklin. Public transport its only a 5 min walk from the camp site. Isle of Wight scout groups now have a special offer for any groups camping on island to sail with'Wightlink' ferries for 2009. Still some weeks/weekends available for summer/winter period
