Cranmore is a village on the Isle of Wight. It is located about three miles east of Yarmouth, in the northwest of the island.
Three areas of grassland, scrub and woodland situated around the village are designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Together the three areas cover 12.4 hectares (30.7 acres) and were notified in 2002. The sites give residence to the Dormouse (Muscardinus avellanarius), red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris) and the nationally rare Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary (Boloria selene) and Kent black arches (Meganola albula). In addition other species include the adder (Vipera berus) and the common lizard (Lacerta vivipara), and nightingale (Luscinia megarhynchos).
