The Isle of Wight
The Isle of Wight, situated off the South Coast of England, is becoming an ever-more popular location for second and permanent homes. Originally made popular by Queen Victoria, who had her maritime residence at Osborne, the Island is famous for sailing in the Solent; for Cowes Week; for its beautiful coastline including sandy beaches and The Needles; spectacular countryside and long sunshine hours. There are now many more facilities than once were the case, Sainsbury, Tesco and M&S all now have a presence as have other national chains. Communication and transport links are excellent; regular car ferries connect with the national motorway network and fast catamarans have connections via Southampton and Portsmouth to direct trains to London Waterloo which can be reached within 2 hours of leaving the Island shore. Government-funded schools are numerous and independent schools thrive on the Island with some children attending prep and public schools on the mainland. Leisure opportunities abound - walking, riding, paragliding, hang-gliding, team sports - including a cricket academy - as well as sailing, wind surfing and other water sports. Good transport links enable day trips to the shopping centres of West Quay, Southampton and Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth.
Cowes is host to Cowes Week, one of the most famous sailing regattas in the world, the pinnacle of the racing calendar. It is followed by events such as Little Britain and the Powerboat Festival. The Round the Island Race, with over 1500 entries, is a spectacular sight in June and each week throughout the year there is activity on the water. There are many Yacht clubs in Cowes including the Royal Yacht Squadron. Cowes town has a wide variety of shops and facilities. There is a medical centre, dentist and veterinary surgery in the town. There is a choice of
primary schools, two middle schools and a high school.
Gurnard is a popular coastal village which lies about 1.5 miles to the west of the premier yachting town of Cowes. Within the village there are local shops, inns, church, local primary school and its own sailing facilities including the recently rebuilt and extended, thriving Gurnard Sailing Club. The Island’s main shopping and administrative centre of Newport is about 5miles distant.
