The Isle of Wight
The Isle of Wight, situated off the South Coast of England, is becoming an ever-more popular location for permanent and second homes. Made popular by Queen Victoria, who had her maritime residence at Osborne House, 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 was the case, Waitrose, 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, sailing, wind surfing and other water sports, rugby, football (Newport Football Club) cricket and golf clubs. Good transport links enable day trips to the shopping centres of West Quay, Southampton and Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth.
Bonchurch is situated between the popular seaside towns of Shanklin and Ventnor. Built on the side of St Boniface Down the village benefits from countryside views, a shingle and sand beach with rock pools, The Sea Beach café and level walking along the revetment towards Ventnor. The famous pond café provides fine dining. A famous feature of Bonchurch is the village pond which is stocked with carp and ducks. It is sheltered by beautiful trees and shrubs. The Village has much Victorian charm and nestles beneath St Boniface Down (at 241m the Island's highest point). Period Stone houses and ornate cottages are set amongst mature trees and woodland, reminiscent of the Victorian taste for the Picturesque.
Ventnor was made popular during the Victorian era when most of the town was built. The notably warmer climate is one reason why Ventnor remains a popular destination today. The town now offers a variety of shops, banks, pubs and restaurants including the Michelin Star restaurant at the Hamborough Hotel. Ventnor Cricket Club and the Botanic gardens are close by.
