From traditional tent pitches to our amazing “Glamping” facilities, you’re sure to get the best possible experience when you choose us for your next family camping holiday. What’s more, there’s no better time of year to experience camping than in the summer, especially down here on the beautiful Isle of Wight, where we enjoy considerably better weather than much of the UK.

But why, you ask, would you want to choose camping? There are many other accommodation options, including right here at Whitecliff Bay! Well, here are few amazing reasons to go on a camping trip, whether it’s with us or elsewhere in the wilds or woodlands of Europe or another place.

Let’s start with the most practical of reasons – it saves you money. Families on a budget want to enjoy a holiday as much as anyone else, but when you’re thinking about the kids and what they need in the long term, it’s necessary to tighten those purse strings. Tent pitches are cheaper than a caravan, and if you’re somewhere like Whitecliff, you have access to all the same on-park facilities.

More profoundly than this, camping is a really great way for the family to connect. When you’re sleeping as a family in one big tent, it really creates a sense of togetherness, don’t you think? Spending the night together, under the stars, connecting with nature – it’s a wonderful experience that will offer you lifelong family memories.

Many mums and dads wrack their brains each day thinking of ways to get their kids away from their smartphones, iPads and laptops. Well, a camping trip is a good way to remind them that there’s more to life than the Internet.

Finally, let’s not forget that “variety is the spice of life.” If you normally come to us at Whitecliff and hire a caravan, or if you normally use a hotel when you travel anywhere, then why not mix it up a bit and experience something new? Camping is a far more accessible and simplified endeavor than it used to be. Thanks to more advanced and easy-to-set-up tents, travel stoves and whatnot, it’s easy and cheap to put together a fun family trip. What’s more, you can go at a moment’s notice.

Don’t forget, camping doesn’t have to be the difficult, hard-going outdoors trip that it was decades ago. Have fun with your family through an outdoor experience encapsulated beautifully within our stunning holiday park, with access to our top-notch facilities. You’re also perched on some of the most stunning and unforgettable coastal scenery in the world! Browse our website and see our latest deals on camping accommodation in 2015.
