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 on a scenic hiking trip or beach walk. You also have private access to Wootton Creek where groups enjoy canoeing, dragon boating, kayaking, sailing and raft building.

There are thrilling activities on land as well – all designed to develop teamwork, build stronger relationships and promote a positive attitude. Facilities at Little Canada include a sports hall, meeting rooms and an indoor activity zone. Accommodation is provided in cosy, en suite log cabins by the edge of the creek.
