Located in the centre of the Isle of Wight is one of the UK's most unique overnight stays, in a converted Westland Wessex helicopter named Galahad at Windmill Campersite.

Head to this intimate and exclusive glamping site in the centre of the island, named after the historic windmill which was said to supply nearby Carisbrooke Castle with water as far back as 11th Century. Now characterised by scenic views, rolling fields and roaming livestock, this unique site is home to some incredible glamping experiences to enjoy. 

Dating back to 1965, Galahad is an original masterpiece of aviation technology and was in active duty during the Falklands War. The conversion of this Westland Wessex XT469 has retained as much of the original character and feel as possible. From the cockpit, relax and watch the sunset over the surrounding countryside. Usually sleeping 2 and a great romantic retreat or honeymoon, the main double bed is situated off the main 'copter' and there is a mini bedroom with foam mattress for an additional two small children.  The fun and rustic 'showershack' uses solar power to provide hot showers, yet Galahad even has its own kitchen, cloakroom and toilet/bidet. 

Other accommodation options across the site include two 1967 splitscreen VW camper vans, hive camping pods and three individually styled shepherds huts, plus a new addition - The Shack, which is designed from the 1950s to include quirky features such as the original 1930s oven.
