About Little Canada

A picturesque adventure activity centre that will inspire your Boys’ or Girls’ Brigade group – Little Canada is a great choice for your next residential.

Located on the Isle of Wight, not far from the Fishbourne Ferry, it’s a great location to explore the island – why not try a scenic hiking trip or beach walk?

Watersports take place on Wootton Creek – we have private access to the water for your group to enjoy some canoeing, dragon boating, kayaking, sailing and raft building.

There are some thrilling activities on land too – all designed to develop teamwork, build stronger relationships and promote a positive attitude.

Facilities at Little Canada include an indoor swimming pool, sports hall, meeting rooms and an indoor activity zone. Accommodation is provided in cosy, en suite log cabins by the edge of the creek.

Healthy, happy dining at PGL
Our food is nutritious, freshly-prepared and most of all – delicious! We have lots of choice for your group too.

Because mealtimes are an adventure too!
Whether they’re choosing their favourites from our self-service salad bar, trying out the soup of the day, or picking up some fresh fruit to take with them for a challenging day ahead, Brigades and Cadet groups love mealtimes at PGL.

More food? No problem!
We want your group to leave our dining room full up and with a smile on their faces! We always have more food for those with hearty appetites and we can cater for a range of special diets too.

Mealtimes are a great opportunity for your Brigades or Cadets to relax, have fun together and swap stories about the day’s adventures. Our dining facilities are spacious, well-equipped and our friendly staff will always be on hand to maintain the highest levels of cleanliness to ensure it’s a pleasurable dining experience for all.
