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.

Newport is the Island's main shopping and administrative centre, it has bus links to all the coastal towns and most villages. Within the town there are schools for all age groups, a cinema complex, theatres, doctors, hospital, restaurants, Inns, a tidal harbour and many other amenities. National shopping chains in Newport include Sainsburys, Morrisons, Lidl, Marks & Spencer, WH Smith, Boots, Dunelm Mill, Halfords and Currys and many others. Ferry ports for vehicles are situated at Fishbourne (to Portsmouth) about 4 miles distant and East Cowes (to Southampton) about 5 miles distant and Yarmouth (to Lymington) about 10 miles distant.

Northwood is a popular village situated about 4.5 miles from the Island's county town of Newport and just 1 mile from the coastal and famous yachting town of Cowes, with passenger ferry links to Southampton. The village has its own church, village hall, shops, post office and primary school and a regular bus service into Newport and Cowes where buses connect with the fast catamaran service to Southampton (23 minutes). The Newport Cowes cycleway follows the bank of the River Medina to the east of the village.
