Take in some beautiful views

Get back to nature at this beautiful countryside location. Situated on the north side of the Isle of Wight, overlooking the Solent, Thorness Bay Holiday Park, sits on a woodland hillside with lovely views out to sea.

There’s plenty of family fun to be had on the park. Join the kids on the sports court for football or basketball, or let them burn off some energy at the adventure playground. After a busy day, enjoy a tasty meal in the Boathouse Bar and Restaurant before a spot of evening entertainment.

With caravan holidays at Thorness Bay, plus touring, caravan ownership, and camping holidays, you can create your ideal break. Plus, if you fancy something a little different, why not camp in style in one of our glamping tents? It's great fun for all the family and whatever accommodation you choose, we can even arrange your ferry travel.

We usually stay at Weymouth and have an excellent time but we decided to try Isle of Wight, Thorness Bay and was unfortunately disappointed. For some where set in such a beautiful setting, it could be beautiful but the staff couldn’t be bothered, bar/restaurant was in short supply or completely out of most stuff.
Our lodge was meant to be new for 2021 but a few things were broken and unwashed items were found in cupboards.
Luckily my kids enjoyed the entertainment (no prosecco for me so hard to enjoy it like them!) which was really all that counts.
We unfortunately also had activities booked like swimming that got cancelled and been told to wait up to 14 days for refund.
I will use Park Dean again but probably won’t visit Thorness Bay again.

I arrived at 2:30 to my caravan the cleaner was just leaving and left the door open as soon as I stepped out the car I noticed a massive gash on the outside of the caravan as I stepped inside the plastic trim to the mat at the door was broken if anyone was to catch there foot on that it would have cut it let alone 3 children! The caravan table had crumbs all over it the place mats still had grubby food stuck to them there was a frying pan that shouldn’t of been in the caravan in the state it was left in the bedding in the kids rooms had mould on and there was no travel cot which I had payed for previously , I spoke to reception and they moved us to another caravan but which wouldn’t be ready until 5 baring in mind it’s getting on for 4 o’clock in the Afternoon I had 3 hungry kids and just wanted to settle into our caravan the ladies at reception gave us some food vouchers while we waited so we headed down to the pub to only find out that food didn’t start serving until 5 o’clock much to our disappointment.
So 5 o’clock comes round we head to our new caravan only to find the cleaners still in there and one just sitting on the floor so off I go to reception again only to be told by staff I’m being rude which I wasn’t I was upset and angry yes but not rude as I got back into my car reception called to say the caravan would be ready in 15 minutes so we drove around site and waited at the caravan, when I walked inside the caravan was cleanish if you call leaving crisps under tables clean! But only to find there was still no travel cot at this time it’s getting on for 6pm my youngest being 1 years old and screaming to go to sleep so I called reception to be told one will be down in 10 minutes so we waited and waited only to be waiting 20 minutes and nothing arrive so off to reception we went again only to be confronted by management as I’m raising my complaints with him his solution to the situation was to give me a refund and go home which I would have been very happy with but I had a very excited 7 year old and 4 year old who I could not take there holiday away from! So we went back to the caravan to then wait another 20 minutes for the travel cot to arrive. On our last evening at thorness bay we went to the pub for dinner ( not that there was a lot to chose from) both my daughters had the pasta which came with fries and beans, once there plates came I was absolutely appalled at what was served to my children I wouldn’t have given that to a dog let alone children the beans looked like they had been sat for a week the pasta looked like it had been cooked for hours we ended up sharing our meals with the children

Great stay away with family friends and their children for a long weekend break. Caravan was nice and clean on entry, not immaculate but for the package you are buying you cant expect it to be! Location was great, the entertainments were perfect for young children and they really enjoyed themselves. Three very small niggles. 1. The caravan next to us were very loud and into the early hours too (obviously this is NOT the fault of the staff at Thorness. They also left a bag of rubbish out by their van rather than walk literally 5m to the bins on site and the wildlife ripped it open which sprawled across the site. 2. The swimming pool toilets were minging and smelt terrible. I know I could have spoken to someone about this but my kids just wanted to get back in the pool!!! and lastly, the pool was shut on our last day due to health and safety which obviously could not have been avoided but we were thinking that maybe this could have been communicated on the Facebook page or something as we all walked down swim ready with sad kids.
