Five night, camping and caravanning packages from just £104 with Red Funnel

23-12-2008 Beat the credit crunch in 2009 with Red Funnel’s exclusive camping packages to the Isle of Wight.

The packages start from just £26 per person for four sharing (plus up to two dogs!) and include return Ferry travel with Red Funnel and five nights pitch. Choose from four award winning four and five star campsites set in stunning locations, all of which have won awards in recognition of their green credentials.

The Isle of Wight is the perfect destination for a family holiday or a cosy get-away, with gorgeous scenery to explore, restaurants and shops selling fresh local produce and a packed events calendar. Whatever the weather, there’s over 60 great places to discover, from Carisbrooke Castle and its famous donkeys, to Amazon World, the indoor rainforest experience. Plus, you can buy tickets to seventeen top Island attractions from Red Funnel, many of which are available at a discount.

Choose from one of four holiday parks, each with fantastic facilities and its own unique appeal.  Appuldurcombe Gardens Holiday Park in Wroxall was originally part of the grounds of 18th century Appuldurcombe House and is set in 14 acres of lush secluded grounds. Or, enjoy stunning views over the Solent from Waverley Park in East Cowes, just a short walk from Osborne House, Queen Victoria’s former family residence. Both campsites boast a heated outdoor swimming pool and games room.

Whitefield Forest Touring Park is set in picturesque ancient woodland on the outskirts of Ryde and has an extensive network of footpaths leading straight from the park, plus an adventure play area for children to enjoy. The Orchards Holiday Park in Newbridge is the ideal location from which to discover the rural West Wight and the famous Needles landmark. Guests at the Orchards have access to indoor and outdoor heated pools, with a new facilities centre opening in the spring.

The package includes a standard pitch at your choice of park, including electric hook-up if required, and travel with Red Funnel from Southampton to East Cowes on the Isle of Wight, for a car and tent, car and trailer-tent, car and caravan or motorhome. A 10% discount voucher at Southampton’s Towsure store is included with each confirmed booking.
