Location - Rookley Country Park
Rookley County Park is set within the rural country village of the same name. Its central location on the Isle of Wight means it’s close to everywhere you could want to visit on the island. Newport, which is considered the ‘capital’ of the Isle of Wight and is one of the best places to go shopping, is just a 13-minute drive away, for example.
While Rookley may be inland, the nearest beach, Shanklin, is also 13 minutes away by car. Alternatively, Sandown only takes 22 minutes to reach by car too.
The closest food shop in Rookley is a five minute walk from the park – ideal for stocking up on picnic essentials and any other snacks you may need during your stay.
