Creek Gardens nestles in a tranquil setting overlooking the picturesque Wootton Creek, on the north coast of the Isle of Wight amidst beautiful countryside. Less than five miles from Cowes, Newport and Ryde, the nearest car ferry at Fishbourne (sailings to & from Portsmouth) is just two miles away.
Creek Gardens is a quiet, small and intimate complex of cottages and apartments within a picturesque two-acre park with attractive gardens leading down to the creek-side pontoon. The creek has been used as a waterway and port for thousands of years - the Romans landed cargo here, King Canute is said to have come ashore here and the monks from nearby Quarr Abbey had a fishery at the creek mouth.
Today, the settlement has crept slowly up either side of the valley away from its origins on the creek and has become a very popular haunt for leisure yachtsmen, with several creek side businesses supporting a variety of maritime activities. The village of Wootton Bridge is an eclectic mix of modern and Victorian buildings and also boasts the renowned Sloop Inn on Mill Square. Numerous child friendly sandy beaches are found nearby and for walkers, there are five separate trails to follow from the village, one of which leads to a little used cove, Woodside Bay, and can be reached on foot within 10 minutes or so from Creek Gardens.
A wealth of outdoor activities can be readily accessed - golf, riding, sailing, cycle hire and fishing are all found nearby and windsurfing, jet skiing, sailplane flying and hang gliding are also available. Shops and pubs serving food are less than a mile away in Wootton whilst Ryde offers more extensive shopping.
