Brook is a village on the Isle of Wight, England. It is situated on the southwest coast of the Island between Brighstone and Freshwater, and borders a section of rugged coastline, the Back of the Wight, facing into the English Channel and towards the famous Needles and west Wight cliffs.

In 1933 it was absorbed into the neighbouring parish of Brightstone.
