Little Canada is a hidden gem on the Isle of Wight

This charming centre sits right on the water’s edge at Wootton Creek, just a short drive from Fishbourne Ferry Port. It’s one of our smallest family centres, but it leads the way with the widest range of multi activities – there’s almost 30 on offer!

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

There's a small shop and on-site bar, the ‘Mounties Retreat’ which provides the ideal place for meeting up with other families and relaxing in the evenings.



Accommodation is simple and functional with every family having their own en suite bathroom. Adults and children are accommodated together in our wooden, bunk-bedded chalets. New for 2020 we are also able to offer a smaller chalet option for families of 2 or 3.

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 has plenty of all weather facilities including a large sports hall and activity zone.


  • The widest range of multi activities for our family centres
  • Beautiful beaches
  • Less than 10 minutes drive from the ferry port

Activities available

Every day is different
Little Canada offers the widest range of multi activities for families to try - there's almost 30 in total!

Evening entertainment 
Enjoying fun evening activities together as a family has always been part of our inclusive formula but even we recognise that some parents still want a bit of ‘me’ time too.

Therefore, we’re introducing some optional new ‘children only’ evening activities into our programme, alongside our existing planned ‘family’ entertainment that you can do together.

Our team will supervise your children, who will spend their time with other children of similar ages doing organised activities, leaving you free to relax.

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.
