The park is located in a quieter part of the island so in terms of restaurants and shops there isn't much in the close vicinity. On-site however, as with all Parkdean resorts, there is more than enough to keep you busy.
For the kids, there's an outdoor adventure playground and multi-purpose sports court, plus the youngsters can make full use of the kids clubs, Star Tots and Starlanders, depending on their age, which is jam packed with fun and activities with the fantastic Parkdean Starland Krew. In the evening the Parkdean Krew join in on the entertainment at The Regatta View Showbar which offers a variety of performances aimed at both adults and children.
Of course one of the biggest attractions for this park is the heated indoor swimming pool with water slide which will ensure hours of fun no matter what time of year you are staying.
All caravans offer good quality self-catering equipment but for those days you just don't want to cook the Boathouse Bar and Restaurant serves meals throughout the day and a children's menu is also available. Or if you fancy a takeaway, try the Fish 'n' chip shop for a family favourite.

Things To Do Near Thorness Bay
A trip to the nearby beach is a must-do for any family holiday. But don't go expecting any shops or restaurants by the beach though, Thorness Bay beach is a quiet, sandy beach slightly further up the Isle of Wight Coast Path.
The Isle of Wight Coast Path is another wonderful way to spend a day, getting some exercise and enjoying the countryside. The Coastal Path circumnavigates the 70 miles around the island from Cowes to East Cowes. While a 4-7 day journey by foot the whole way, sections of the walk around Thorness like down to the Hampstead Heritage Coast or up to Gurnard and Cowes offer some lovely scenery.
A trip into Cowes is another fun, nautical themed day out with the Sir Max Aitken Museum, marinas and the infamous floating bridge over to East Cowes. While in the opposite direction, a trip to The Needles in the far west of the island offers spectacular views of the white cliffs.
