Welcome to New Bank End Farm Camping & Caravanning
In a wonderfully secluded location, away from our holiday cottages, we are really pleased to now be able to offer holidays for Campers and Caravaners in an idyllic peaceful location with amazing sea views. Set up for 2014 as a result of many requests, we have joined the Camping & Caravanning club to become a certified site. Being a small family friendly site we can accommodate 5 caravans & up to 10 tents so booking is advisable. There is a chemical disposal point and bins on site. Children are welcome as are well-behaved dogs, but we ask that they are kept on leads ( the dogs not the children!). The pitches are well spaced and have amazing sea views.
The site is secluded and in a lovely coastal location with sea views and easy access to coastal walks & small coves. The location is 1 ½ miles from Ventnor and a short 10-minute walk to the Ventnor Botanical Gardens & Steephill Cove, providing plenty of wonderful walks & places to explore.
We look forward to welcoming you soon.
