Isle of Wight - Rookley

Rookley is a village and civil parish on the Isle of Wight. It is located five kilometres south of Newport near the centre of the Island. It has a country park on the site of the last working Isle of Wight brickworks. There is a pub at the country park and another pub, the "Chequers" a short distance from the village. The latter was the centre of the Island smuggling trade in the 18th century.
Southern Vectis bus route 3 serves the village on its way between Newport, Ventnor, Shanklin, Sandown and Ryde, including intermediate villages.
The Village Association Playing Field in Highwood Lane hosts Godshill Cricket Club and Rookley Football Club. Two major events are held in the field each year; Gardening Galore and Rookley Show.

Self Catering Hotel Guest House/B&B

The Red Barn

Tel: 01983 721453

Large self-catering property specially adapted for disabled visitors and wheelchair users.

This large stone and brick barn is one of a number of historic farm buildings, some of which date back to the 1500s. It is situated in an idyllic setting on the outskirts of Rookley village, in a valley amid farmland and woodland, only reached down a farm track, half a mile from the road. It is however within ten minutes drive of the County town of Newport, with large, modern shops, cinema, pubs, restaurants, etc., together with more traditional farmers' markets and old style stores. The town is largely level, with good wheelchair access to most premises. Several local pubs and restaurants have excellent facilities for disabled customers.

Views from all directions are beautiful. The building is warm and welcoming, with comfort a priority.
