About Little Canada

With its woodland log cabins on the banks of Wootton Creek, it’s easy to see how Little Canada adventure centre got its name.

This beautiful venue has private access to the water, making it ideal for watersports. A raft building or dragon boating session is a great way to promote teamwork, communication and leadership and they’re also lots of fun! There are plenty of land-based activities too; we’ve got climbing towers, abseil walls, zip wires – everything to excite, inspire and build confidence for your pupils.

This centre is also a perfect base for exploring the natural beauty of the Isle of Wight on one of our Discover More science and field studies courses.

Make the most of the stunning woodland setting and stay in one of our cosy wooden lodges. Our Woodlands House is also ideal for primary school groups looking for single occupancy.

Food

Enjoyable mealtimes with nutritious and tasty food
Our meals are freshly cooked, balanced and will give your pupils plenty of energy to keep them going throughout the day.

Our little extras
In addition to our fantastic range of hot meals, (which are freshly prepared and include vegetarian options), we offer tasty, healthy, homemade soup every day. There’s also a wide variety of fresh fruit and salad options at our salad bar – it’s great when they want to try something new!

Fussy Eaters?
We know some of your pupils may be particular about what they eat. Don’t worry though, whether it’s because of special dietary needs or simply someone who’s really particular, we will always find something to suit any special requests you may have. And if they’re still hungry, we can offer alternatives and extra food.

Looking after you
Good meals in an efficient and clean environment is always a given with us, but we like to do much more. We go all-out to create a friendly and welcoming atmosphere in pleasant, attractive surroundings to help you to enjoy dining with us.
