Shop-in-a-shed – bits of vintage, handmade tea-cosies and the like. Breakfast packs and speciality bakes available to order in advance and free-range eggs available on the farm. Badminton net, bats, balls and games available to borrow. Check individual units for more specific details on each Airstream.

Treat yourself to a scenic chug through the countryside on the Isle of Wight Steam Railway (01983 882204). The nearest station, at Smallbrook Junction, is a 15 minute walk away. It's a tiny bit further to Rosemary Vineyard (01983 811084), one of the largest producers of English Wine – covering 30 acres just south of Ryde. Free guided winery tours are offerred every Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday (11am, 12pm, 1pm) and last around 30 minutes. They take you through the winemaking process and the equipment used, followed by a tasting of their wines, juices, liqueurs and ciders

Order up a special breakfast ‘hamper’ packed with local goodies (ok, it arrives in a brown paper bag) from the Wight Hamper Company (01983 875535). There are many pub and restaurant options in nearby Newport but for a great view across the island and out to the Solent, head to the beer garden at The Blacksmiths Arms (01983 529263) in Calbourne on the main Newport to Freshwater road. Good Sunday lunches plus guest ales.

The Owner Says

The Airstream an incredible feat of engineering and a joy to behold, with effortless, curved lines, a sparkle of silver and a spacious, luxurious interior. This is no ordinary caravan – it’s style on wheels. The early riveted aluminium trailer was replaced by more modern motorhomes from the 1980s, but the sturdy construction and timeless design of the original has led to a renaissance for these classic caravans. They’ve gradually been appearing in trailer parks and movie sets in the States in recent years. Perhaps more unexpected is to see ten particularly fine examples in a small field near Newport on the Isle of Wight. This is the home of Vintage Vacations, brainchild of photographer Frazer Cunningham and stylist Helen Carey. Their love for all things retro compelled them to import initially just two of these beautiful caravans, a 1965 Tradewind and a 1971 Safari.  Now, however, there are fifteen trailers and caravans of varying sizes, forming a unique vintage 'caravan park' and a memorable way to spend a week or so on the Isle of Wight.


19 vintage Airstreams and antique caravans. And 1 touring pitch available for classic campers and vintage caravans only.
