Seaview is a well-known sailing village located on the north eastern coast of the Isle of Wight. Seaview has many facilities including the renowned Seaview hotel and restaurant, the Seaview Yacht club and the Isle of Wight Sports Club. Newport the County town of the Island is approximately 12 miles distant to the west and has a wide range of facilities and amenities, Ryde, (the gateway to the Isle of Wight) being approximately 2 miles distant with mainland connections by hovercraft (7 mins) to Southsea and a fast catamaran (15 mins) to Portsmouth with onward train links to London (I hour 10 mins).

Ryde is the largest town on the Isle of Wight and has an array of fine Georgian and Victorian buildings, pubs, restaurants, a sea front promenade, marina, shops and entertainment. Ryde has 6 miles of beaches and shallow coastal waters which is ideal for swimming. Reaching almost half a mile, Ryde Pier is one of the oldest piers in the country. This is considered the gateway to Ryde as the Wightlink Catamaran operates from Portsmouth to the end of the pier and there is also a direct train from the pier through to Shanklin. To the East of Ryde there are the popular sailing villages which include, Seaview, St Helens and Bembridge. To the West of Ryde is Newport which is the main shopping district with many popular high street shops.

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.
