Come and Enjoy a Taste of Paradise!

This camp offers you an alternative grappling holiday like no other. Join us at our secluded venue on the north-east coast of the Isle of Wight, where you can train and unwind in equal measure. Enjoy the peace and quiet of the ancient oak woodlands and feel your stresses melt away. With private access to the beautiful Wootton Creek, you can swim right from the pontoon, or soak up the Isle of Wight sun on the beach, which is just five minutes walk away. Enjoy morning movement and mobility on the sun deck that overlooks the creek, or take a walk on the beach. We put great emphasis on fantastic food, so your training sessions will be well fuelled, and all dietary requirements are catered for. After a day of learning and making new friends who share your passion, there's nothing quite like winding down with a swim and a fire on the beach. Our mission is always to facilitate an unforgettable experience, and we consider your down-time as much as your training: with boat rides, water sports, beach parties, chasing sunsets around the island, and more.

Isle of Wight

The Isle of Wight is an island to the south of the UK mainland, it has become increasingly popular as a holiday destination as more people discover the island's natural beauty and the hidden gems it has to offer. From the Jurassic coast where there's every chance you may discover a dinosaur fossil, to the many woodlands that are home to the original native squirrel species of the UK, the red squirrel. Fantastic beaches; great bars and restaurants; and many tourist attractions.


The Secret Garden

In amongst a private woodland area, your glamping style accommodation sits nestled between the trees of a peaceful orchard. Our on-site chefs amaze and delight in equal measure, with evening meals by candlelight at the communal banquet table. In addition to the beach, which is just five minutes walk away, you have a private route to the shore of Wootton Creek where you can chill, swim, or sit around the firepit in the moonlight. Board games include chess, go, scrabble and there are always plenty of packs of cards to hand. There’s also an on-site laundry service. This unique venue really is the perfect spot to forge unforgettable memories.
