The Island Only 23 miles by 13 miles, and a short sea crossing from the mainland, the Island has a unique atmosphere boasting many attributes, not least of which is its slower pace of life and its own microclimate. It enjoys unspoilt villages and fine seaside resorts with many miles of impressive coastal scenery. With safe sandy beaches, it is a place for sailing, windsurfing and swimming, ideal for both young and old.

The Island is an international sailing mecca with many events throughout the season. The most famous is Cowes Week which takes place in the first week of August, drawing people from all over the world to compete in this prestigious regatta. In addition there are many premier yacht and sailing clubs including Bembridge Sailing Club, which is within easy reach.

Additional leisure amenities include numerous cricket and golf clubs. Located close to the eastern most point of The Island, Bembridge offers a wide range of amenities and is particularly popular with yachtsmen, offering excellent mooring facilities within the harbour, two sailing clubs and a marina. There are shallow beaches, perfect for swimming, kite-surfing and beach-combing, with a busy harbour always well stocked with pleasure craft and fishing boats. Pleasant coastal paths wind along the cliffs and are a great attraction for those who enjoy walking.  

Bembridge The village has a good range of small shops for everyday needs, including an excellent fishmonger, with freshly caught fish off the boats, a butcher, delicatessen and several good restaurants. A more comprehensive range of shopping facilities is available in the county town of Newport (13 miles) and the nearby town of Ryde (7 miles). 

The Ledge House The Ledge House is an attractive period family home, in the sought after location of Bembridge, on the Isle of Wight. The house enjoys a superb coastal position, with breathtaking sea views from both the house and its well protected, south facing garden. Extensive and beautifully presented family accommodation is laid out over two floors. The ground floor has a drawing room, sitting room, conservatory/ dining room, library and a large kitchen/ breakfast room. Nearly all of the reception rooms enjoy the magnificent south facing views over the garden and the sea beyond. The first floor provides 7 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, 4 of the bedrooms enjoy the far reaching sea views.To the side of the house is a laundry room, 2 workshops, vegetable garden and parking for several cars. 

The Garden Large French doors lead from the reception rooms, into the south facing garden, which has two terraces, ideal for al fresco dining. The gardens are predominantly walled, giving you protection from the wind, whilst still maximising the vista. From the garden, there is a gate leading down to the beach. Surprisingly for an island, there are very few properties with direct access to the beach and even fewer standing in gardens that have one of the finest panoramic views across the sea to the mainland beyond. 

Travel There are many ways of crossing The Solent to the Island. If travelling by car there is a choice of three routes all with frequent services: Lymington to Yarmouth (30 minutes), Portsmouth to Fishbourne (45 minutes), and Southampton to East Cowes (55 minutes). If travelling on foot there is a fast and frequent catamaran service from Portsmouth to Ryde (15 minutes) and a similar service from Southampton to Cowes (23 minutes), both connecting with regular mainline train services to London Waterloo. There is also a hovercraft from Portsmouth (Clarence Pier, Southsea) to Ryde, taking 10 minutes. To the west of Bembridge village is a small private aerodrome. Southampton Airport is also within easy reach, on the mainland.
