Atherfield holiday camp

Atherfield holiday camp on the military road


An extract taken from an old brochure

Our facilities comprise of a cliff top open-air swimming pool with breathtaking sea views, two all-weather tennis courts, bowling green, golf putting area, spacious sports fields and a games room. The atmosphere of Atherfield Bay is enhanced by optional evening entertainment, i.e. discos, comedians etc., and takes place in the main building. This comprises of a large ballroom, Driftwood Restaurant, Moroccan and Snug Bars and a meeting room.

There is evidence that the site was to be turned into a site for private holiday chalets, but the re-development doesn't seem like it will take placedue to the amount of vandalism and exposure to the elements that have taken place.

These pictures are a couple of years back and since then it is in a terrible state I don't think one window is actually intact anymore. Anyway on with the pictures.
