Dear Sue & Peter,
Just to say thank you to you for your friendly hospitality
and lovely quiet campsite, hope to come again next year. Thank you. Keith Jansen
Mr and Mrs Herbert, Just wanted to send an email to say thank you for the stay at your camp
site, we all thought you were both really warm and friendly. The camp site was
perfect and you gave us plenty of space to spread out :-). Not sure if you
remember but we were the group of four (3 males 1 female) who were in the two
tents in the far field, I was the cheeky one! All in all we had a brilliant holiday, the festival was fantastic
and we were so pleased to have stayed on your site. If we come next year to the
festival I am sure we will be staying again. All the best to you both, hope your campsite continues to grow year on
Dear Sue and
Peter, Sorry we left without
saying goodbye on Sunday. We had a lovely weekend
and this was defiantly made better by being at riverside paddock. You truly have
a wonderful site and the both of you are lovely people.
Thank you for having
us, and if we come to the I.O.W or festival in the future we will want to

Hi, We would just like to say what a
pleasure it was staying with you on your site, this weekend. The layout and landscaping is really
lovely and the facilities spotless. You have done a tremendous job and
we look forward to coming back.
Wishing you both all the very best
for the future.
Ange & Phil Muir
Just to say a big thankyou for a great weekend. We will be telling our friends
about your camp site and hopefully we will see you again next year. Many thanks
again. Kelly Wroe and friends x
Thank you again for a lovely stay last week. You have created a really
special place to find somewhere so quiet and relaxed in high season is a
rare treat. The facilities are great and you two help make it somewhere we
will always recommend. Next year...will it be the orchard or the meadow that
we will most want to stay in?? Kindest regards Adrian and Andrew.
Staying here was a totally enjoyable experience, It was all made very easy and
everything you need is provided…but more than this: hot luxury showers, an
extremely comfortable proper mattress and even tea and coffee for us to make on
the stove provided before adventuring along the nearby cycle paths to the coast.
Amazing and friendly couple in a quiet idyllic spot, We would
definitely come back!" Emma Gibson (Artist / Creative Researcher) &

We recently spent 4 days at your delightful site.
Just to say how much we
enjoyed our stay and how well situated we found it to be, very close to
Newport and amenities yet wonderfully quiet. We hope to return before
too long. Dave Lawrence and
Dear Sue, A quick e-email with a warm 'thank you' for your kind and
friendly welcome. I'm sorry we had to rush our final conversation. We had
to get away to catch the boat. Our best wishes for great success with
the campsite - and in finding just the right campervan! We'll come to
stay again when next we visit the island. Tom & Penny Sanders. PS:
Love to the ducks!
Hi Sue and Peter,
Just wanted to drop you guys a line to say thank you
for a wonderful stay and for making us feel so welcome. You have a lovely
site very peaceful and tranquil and we will be back for sure next year.
All the best. Rick & Mel.
Hi Sue and Peter,
Thanks for a great value, comfy, quiet, safe and secure
week. Just what we needed to blow the cobwebs away. Mike and Val Voyle.
We had planned a week of sightseeing and celebrations on the Isle of Wight over
the Queens Diamond Jubilee bank holiday. Unfortunately my wife Linda was taken
ill and admitted to the main hospital in Newport. I was actually camped on the
other side of the Island south of Totland. I was desperate to be nearer the
hospital and after a quick search on the internet found the Riverside Paddock
Campsite. When I contacted Sue and Peter they immediately allowed me to stay at
the site despite being full for the Jubilee weekend. They were extremely caring
and supportive and ensured that I had everything I needed. Everyday they checked
to make sure that my wife was ok and I was also OK. The campsite is absolutely
beautiful and the Barn owl flying around in the evening was stunning. Sue and
Peter are very special, warm and caring people. Thank you both. Martin and Linda Spanswick.

Hi Sue and Peter,
Sorry we didn't see you before we left on Friday but just a
quick line to say thanks for a great week at Riverside Paddock(thank you for
providing such excellent weather..) we had a lovely time, the campsite was
everything we wanted and we hope to be back in the not too distant future,
thanks again, Lindsey and Steve Brookes
Hello, Just wanted to say thank you for a very good stay, we thought your
campsite was excellent and the shower facilities were always so clean and
great to have an unlimited supply of hot water. Also thanks for charging the
battery. We would definitely return and recommend you to others. Thank
you Carol and Jeremy.
an absolutely delightful site. The first time camping
on the IOW & decided to base ourselves centrally.
Very glad we did. The site is one of the nicest
campsites we have ever used. The fact that it has
only been opened a couple of years means that improvements
are still under way. The layout of the site is very
good & once all the newly planted trees get
the chance to grow it will be even better. Right
next to the Newport/Cowes cycle path. 15 minutes
to the nearest dog friendly pub, the Bargemans Rest
right on the river. The shower & toilet facilities
are very good & clean. Dog friendly & children
free site. A campsite not to be missed! Reviewer:
would definitely stay here again and would recommend
to anyone wanting this as a base to see the Island.
It is within walking distance of Newport Town Centre
(via a cycle path - so no cars to avoid!). Takes
about 30 mins. There you have all the shops and
buses to take you anywhere. Lovely site. Really
important to us are the shower facilities and these
were spotless. Never once did we find anything to
complain about. On one occasion the shower tray
was blocked and this was dealt with immediately.
Excellent internet coverage. The owners were lovely
and anything you wanted help with, they were on
hand. No phoning up and hoping someone would answer.
These people were on site all the time to help you.
Unfortunately it rained most of the time on our
two week stay but had the sun been shining the outlook
from your caravan was superb. Wide fields one side
and newly planted trees the other. And as an adult
site, no noisy children either (bonus)! Reviewer:
stayed here as a base for the IOW Festival and fully
enjoyed the stay. The site is spotlessly clean and
the owners never seem to stop cleaning and tidying!
Nicely situated and very quiet (once the festival
finished!) Good hot showers and free hair-dryer.
No shop on site but not far away is a huge supermarket.
EHU spots can get taken up early so I recommend
booking. I will definitely stay here again and the
owners are genuine in wanting you to have a good
time and are always around to give out advice or
sort out any queries. Reviewer: NewbieUK
recommend this site highly enough. We booked for
5 nights as a base to explore the island before
going to the IOW Festival. As it is pretty central,
it is a fantastic base for day trips anywhere on
the island. The owners are lovely, the showers and
toilets always spotlessly clean and there is enough
room for everyone to have enough space between their
tents and vans. Having headed off to the festival
where the organisers could only put vans on a field
so muddy that we had to be towed on and off, we
had no access to running water, and it took an hour
to walk through the mud to get to the stages, we
are so grateful to say that it only took one emergency
call to Riverside Paddock and we were welcomed back
to the site even though they weren't taking any
more bookings. From there we could walk along the
cycle path by the river to the festival- and it
was quicker than the where we had been put on the
original official site. Will definitely return!
approached via an industrial estate this site is
very nicely located near the River Medina and on
the Newport Cowes cycle path, peaceful and rural
with great access to Newport. The owners Peter and
Sue are nice people who, while maintaining a high
standard, don't interfere and remain completely
unobtrusive. The loos and showers are cleaned constantly
and one little thing you could do is leave your
shoes outside to prevent grass cuttings making a
mess of the floors. Great little site, we would
definitely use this one again as it is also a central
base for exploring the IOW. Highly recommended.
quality of this site was clear from the first contact
we had on phone before arriving. A friendly customer
oriented service revealed itself. The site is not
to big, but it is well organised on a flat golf
like grass field. Good drainage and possibility
to have electricity ads to the good tent experience.
Staff is helpful and glad to make recommendations.
There are foot and biking paths just outside the
gate. We got recommendation for a nice walk along
the Medina River. During the walk we met only friendly
people and had a few good conversations. The toilet,
showers, and washing facilities are spotless clean.
The hot water is plentiful and included. Bottom
line is that we can recommend this splendid site
to anyone looking for a quiet, clean, well organised,
and friendly camp site! Reviewer: Reisende
