Rookley Country Park is a great place for those who like to combine a caravan or luxury bungalow holiday with touring the Isle of Wight and enjoying a few days pleasure fishing. It is also ideal for anglers who simply want to go for the big carp whilst enjoying more comfort and facilities than a bivvie can provide.
Situated in the centre of the island, Rookley is an easy drive to any of the islands many attractions and beaches whilst on site there is virtually everything you could want for a relaxing angling holiday or break.
The park's bar and restaurant (right) offer a wide selection of wines, spirits and beers and serve a choice of snacks and meals from sandwiches to steak with all the trimmings. There is also a Daily Specials board which supplements the menu and a choice of meals for children.
Adjacent to the restaurant is a children's games room whilst outside a large decking area where you can enjoy a quiet drink or meal away from the main seating area overlooks the lakes.
A great attraction for the young at heart is Rookley Park's new Midnight Bar nightclub which also offers nightly entertainment.
In addition to the good-sized heated indoor swimming pool there is a smaller outdoor pool for use in hot weather, whilst nearby is a small but well-equipped children's play area.
Those who fancy it can try their skill on Rookley's Country Park's own nine-hole pitch and putt course, a crazy golf course or in good weather enjoy a leisurely picnic in the quieter grassy meadows which form part of the park's 20-acre site.
Static caravan accommodation comes in four forms at Rookley Country Park but whichever type you choose your caravan will have a fully equipped kitchen with microwave, a colour television in the lounge, a shower, WC and hand basin, and duvet and pillows.
For those who don't want to take their own bed linen, this can be hired, whilst families with younger children can also hire highchairs.
The Standard caravans are mostly 34 feet long by 10 feet wide and offer budget accommodation for two to six people in two bedrooms with a pull-out bed in the lounge. Microwave ovens can be hired by those staying in the Standard caravans.
Next up in the range are the Standard Plus caravans which measure 34 feet long by 12 feet wide and provide accommodation for up to eight people in two and three bedrooms with full-sized pull-out in the lounge.
The slightly larger Luxury range of caravans measure 36 feet by 12 feet and accommodate four to eight guests in three bedrooms with a full-size pull-out in the lounge whilst the top-of-the-range Premier and Premier Plus vans again measure 36 feet by 12 feet and all have lake views. Beautifully furnished for six to eight guests, they have two or three bedrooms with full-sized pull-out in the lounge.
