Isle of Wight camping

Camping on the Isle of Wight

If camping is all about being at one with nature and reconnecting with wildlife, then the Isle of Wight is the perfect place to do it.

Around half the Island is designated as a National Landscape and there are so many ways to explore the gorgeous countryside you’ll find yourself in, whether it’s tacking one of many walking trails or hitting a stunningly-scenic cycle trail. That’s only one of the reasons why the Isle of Wight was voted UK Holiday Destination of the Year in 2020.

And with our three convenient ferry routes, we can get you there in no time at all.

Heathfield Farm Camping

Heathfield Farm, located in Freshwater, West Wight, is a small and friendly, family-owned campsite open all year round. Its rural setting offers nine acres of unspoilt countryside, with 75 pitches providing generous space.
