    Hi, looks like the weather will be kind, possibly a bit breezey easterly wind but supposed to be dry & bright, so just booked 3 nights with Park resorts site over here on the island, £17.05 for 3 nights on electric pitch.( can't be bad) 200 yards from the beach . Don't normally go to these sorts of sites but at this time of year they offer silly prices just to put bums on pitches. We won't be using pool / bar / club, etc. we will be walking dog & relaxing.

    CCC and CC need to do something like that! There prices are astronomical even at this time of the year. We are actually going to Horsley CCC site but got a 2 for 1 voucher but even with that it's still costing more than we'd usually pay elsewhere. Our friends tried to book yesterday for the weekend and the website is saying a minimum of 3 nights! what's that all about? They can't get away until Friday as they look after their granddaugher Thursday night.

    I can understand 3 nights at bank holidays but at the beginning of October, it's nuts.

    Now that the kids are back at school, these type of sites will be nice and quiet anyway! You can also get some bargains on the Haven sites

    Very good deals, I looked at 7 nights from 2 November-Camber sands £56 or Isle of Wight £37.
    Very good prices but how much for ferry.

    Ferry quite expensive if purchased seperately, can be somewhat cheaper thru ccc or when booking thru park resorts.

    We once had a week at Rockley Park in Dorset, with EHU for £44 and that was in July just before the schools broke up. If you only use your pitch as a base, these parks are ok!
