We are delighted to announce that we are returning to Thorness Bay Holiday Park for the 2018 Festivals. Thorness Bay near Cowes, was home to the festival for the first 5 years and was extremely popular with many teams due to it’s excellent facilities, & views back across the Solent. In addition to Thorness Bay we also have the very popular Landguard Holiday Park which is also owned by our friends at Park Resorts, and has a range of accommodation from Bronze caravans to Luxury Lodges. We also have acquired Nodes Point Holiday Park as well which has a few Luxury Lodges, plus fully equipped Glamping Tents, & Ready Erected Tents with beds. With such a wide choice of holiday parks & accommodation the SCI Isle of Wight Mitre Ultimatch Cup in 2018 really is for everyone!

Choose your accommodation from a choice of three fantastic Park Resorts Holiday Parks:

Thorness Bay Holiday Park

Near Cowes, is where its all going on! Spread out across fields, framed on one side by the sea with stunning views across the Solent, this park is a big hit with families. The kids will love splashing about in the indoor fun pool with waterslide, or running around in the adventure playground play crazy golf, or visit the amusements or have a practice game in one of the Multi Sports Courts available. Other activities include Water Walkerz, Aqua Jets, & Archery. Take the family for a stroll down the footpath to the sea or relax with a drink or meal on the terrace which looks back across the Solent and overlooks the Adventure Playground & Multi Sports Courts. Need to feed the team?? Then why not visit the Boathouse Bar & Restaurant which serves a variety of meals throughout the day from Breakfasts to Main Meals in the evening. In the evening the super cabarets and shows for all the family are not to be missed. Join the Teamstarz each and every night for great entertainment in the Regatta View Showbar.
