Rookley on the Isle of Wight is set in a rural location and is beautiful country village, not far from Newport.

It is quite easy to drive through Rookley and miss the most beautiful country park, which is the home to Rookley Country Park, set in what were once a brick works, which the large lakes being dug for the red clay needed for Rookley Bricks.  These have been stock with fresh water fish, but are noted for the massive carp that now live there.

Whilst the Country Park forms part of a holiday park, you can go in and enjoy the walk around the lakes or have a meal at the Country Club Bar..
