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, 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. Sainsburys, Tesco, M&S, Waitrose, Lidl and Aldi all now have a presence as have many 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 with 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 (Ryde School and Priory School) 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.

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, primary school, banks, pubs and restaurants. Ventnor Cricket Club and the Botanic gardens are close by.
Godshill is a very popular village situated about 6 miles south-east of the Island's main shopping and administrative centre of Newport and has regular bus services to the coastal towns of Ventnor, Sandown and Shanklin. The village has excellent local facilities including the Church, inns, restaurants, primary school, Post Office and other shops. Beyond the village there are various footpaths and bridleways giving access to the fine countryside and long distance Island trails.
