Island Charters B & B

REF NR: 335

We are not a hotel or guest house but are something different that offers good quality, comfortable B & B accommodation on a boat at a very reasonable price. Come and relax on a holiday with a difference that won’t break the bank, but still gives you all the comfort you need, and more. ISLAND CHARTERS B & B FLOATELS operate two static boats, moored next to each other in picturesque Wootton Creek on the Isle of Wight. Once working boats, they are now floatels - offering the facilities of a motel afloat! Starting in 1980, originally chartering to divers, who wished to dive around the coastal waters of the Isle of Wight. There are many shipwrecks that have lain on the seabed, for centuries, which still cause much interest. We are a small business run by my wife, Pauline and myself, John Gallop. We have two charter boats: MV Newclose and MV Sea Wasp. Both offer comfortable accommodation in a quiet and beautiful part of the Isle of Wight. The boats can sleep up to 20 people in double or family cabins and feature showers (some en-suite), a lounge and sun deck.


MV Newclose has 10 double cabins where up to 20 people can sleep, whether double below or single above. After a pleasant night’s sleep, have a relaxing shower, then take a stroll down the gangway to our lovely galley, where you can enjoy your breakfast cooked and served to you. The galley area is available for use during your stay, to make teas and coffees etc. Afterwards you may like to relax in the upper deck lounge area, taking in the views of the creek.


On MV Sea Wasp we can accommodate up to 12 people in different type of cabins. Guests can choose from 2 lovely double cabins with shower opposite, a delightful cabin with bunks and shower opposite, a family cabin en-suite, the kids love sleeping in those raised beds on the forward deck and everyone's favourite double en suite with sun deck and views of beautiful Wootton Creek. After a day out enjoying the sights of the Island, you could relax in the lounge with a cuppa, or take in the sea air and then off to bed, sleeping soundly in one of these beautiful cabins.

You can come and go as you please using our facilities, to enjoy local interests, or venture further into the beautiful Isle of Wight, with all it's natural and man made attractions. Reachable on the main Newport to Ryde, road (A3054), Wootton has a pretty little creek on one side of the bridge, on the other side a picturesque Millpond which boasts kingfishers, herons and egrets. There is a newly opened pub and restaurant within walking distance of our boats and further into the village, there is a mini supermarket, two other pubs, also Chinese and Indian take away's and good old English fish and chips. Wootton has its own heritage trail, with its 11th century church. Other interesting attractions nearby, include, Havenstreet Steam Railway, Quarr Abbey, Butterfly World and Firestone copse with picnic sites and lovely views over the Millpond and many other you can find on Island Eye. The Wightlink car ferry terminal is right next door to us in Fishbourne. This diamond-shaped island has a magic all of its own - and is one of the UK's sunniest and warmest places. Measuring 23 miles by 13 miles, the Island lies just off England's South Coast. But no passport is needed for the short sea crossing - and once you've landed on the Island everything is within easy reach.

So come and see what Island Charters B & B Floatels can offer for a very reasonable price...
