Adgestone (Ready Camp)

UK England South East England Isle Of Wight

Lower Road, Adgestone, Isle of Wight PO36 0HL

The perfect location for family holidays with ample space and top facilities
Tennyson, Dickens, Swinburne – some of the biggest names in English literature frequented the Isle of Wight during Victorian times. It’s easy to see why. Despite measuring less than 23 miles at its widest point, it packs a staggeringly diverse range of landscapes and a spectrum of seaside scenery. There’s a peaceful and sedate feel to the place and you could easily imagine Dickens gazing out the window as he penned his way through David Copperfield. But the Isle of Wight comes however you like to take it. Rambles through the quiet, rural meadows and charming sandy beaches are there when you need but you can also seek out bustling modern hot spots or merge into the vibrant crowds of their summer festival scene.

There’s no denying Adgestone has fantastic facilities; the highlight, though, is the Ready Camp safari tents, new to the campsite and kitted out with everything you need: two proper beds in two proper bedrooms (the tents can sleep four adults in comfort, or a family of six), a kitchenette with hob, fridge, microwave and pots, pans and cutlery; and a living area that extends to a shady terrace.

For families, attractions like the Isle of Wight Zoo and Brading Roman Villa provide an assorted mix of options, both within waking distance of your tent flaps. Or, if you want to be a little more Victorian, you can don your finest attire, pop up the sun-umbrella and wander the seafront parade in Sandown – strolling the promenade may not be the pinnacle of holidaying anymore but there’s still no questioning the joyous lungfuls of fresh sea air. The town is still a thriving spot, with some great waterfront eateries, and if you continue along the shoreline it merges seamlessly into neighbouring Shanklin, famous for its sandy beach and deep, rainforest-like ravine. The cascading waterfalls and thick, dark trees that fill the latter feel a mile away from the popular town centre.

Slipping from one scene into another is exactly what today's Isle of Wight is about. It seems that, despite its size, a continent’s worth of variety is harboured upon its shores. Nestle in a safari tent and spend your days lounging on the beach; camp beyond the lake and fish for giant carp; snooze through a morning of post-festival haze; or take off in the campervan and explore historic royal houses. The choice is yours and you can even phone a friend.
