Little Canada is a hidden gem on the Isle of Wight

Little Canada provides the perfect waterside location to experience a range of land and water-based activities on the gorgeous Isle of Wight.

This compact and friendly centre is set in 48 acres of woodland on the water’s edge at Wootton Creek just a few minutes’ drive from Fishbourne Ferry Port. With beautiful beaches and protected waters, the Island is an understandably popular destination for families looking for a holiday with a difference.

On offer at Little Canada:

  • 7 night holidays
  • 4 night short breaks
  • 2 night weekends

You’ll find a fantastic range of land-based activities within the grounds of the centre and watersports are just a few minutes’ walk away on the beach or landing stage.

Our large on-site bar, the ‘Mounties Retreat’ provides the ideal place for meeting up with other families and talking over the day’s activities, having a game of pool or just chilling out.



Accommodation is simple and functional with every family having their own ensuite bathroom. Adults and children are accommodated together in our wooden, bunk-bedded chalets.

The chalets are grouped together in small villages at the heart of the centre. 


All the centre’s facilities including the dining room and bar are conveniently located in a central area surrounded by the accommodation. There are climbing and abseiling walls, tunnel trail and, unique to Little Canada, the Mysterious Matrix. The centre also plenty of all weather facilities including a large sports hall and activity zone.


  • Watersports on the creek
  • Beautiful beaches
  • Less than 10 minutes drive from the ferry port


Time together
Eating together is an important part of any Family holiday and we know how tricky it can be to please everyone in the family. PGL Family Adventures include breakfast, lunch and dinner; making food one less thing for you to think about.

Something for everyone
We source fresh regional produce whenever we can and you’ll always find a good selection of seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables on offer every day. The menu will always include a vegetarian option and we will try to provide a taste of local cuisine whenever possible. We aim to provide a balance of food which is familiar but also gives guests the opportunity to try food influenced by the area they are visiting. A range of salads is available at lunch and dinner time and fresh fruit is available at every meal.

Our Group leaders are on hand to help and will look out for anyone who can’t find anything on the menu that they enjoy. If necessary our catering teams will be more than happy to prepare something special.

Allergies, intolerances and other dietary requirements
A vegetarian alternative can always be provided on all our holidays, and we can accommodate most special diets required on medical or religious grounds, just let us know when you book.

Tea, coffee, hot chocolate and water are available with meals. There are also water fountains available around the centre.

A dining room with a difference...
Meals will usually be served in the dining room, although at some centres there may be a barbeque on one evening. If you are out and about enjoying an excursion at lunchtime then our catering team will provide a delicious packed lunch for you to take with you.
