About the Island

The Island has been called The Garden of England, A title by which it has been referred to as long Ago as 1781

Islands have always exercised a peculiar fascination over us Englishmen, perhaps because accustomed as we are to a sense of   security induced by a surrounding sea, we never feel more comfortable when the sea is on all sides at a measurable distance. 

A quote of a comical nature of yesteryear, "The narrow streets of the Island seem as foreign in 1940 to those who come from    their mansions and castles" The Island in fact presents every variety of scenery from richly wooded lanes, tiny Island villages bowered in greenery, high sweeping downs to bold coast scenery, with chalk cliffs rising 200ft above a sea
often grand in the extreme.

Isle of Wight Lifestyle


Beautiful beaches, miles of unspoilt countryside, fantastic architecture, high quality restaurants & bars and access to sailing, all within easy reach of the South East of England.

The Isle of Wight has a stunning coastline and some of the best sunshine hours in the UK. Many people take advantage of this before their working day begins, from taking their dog for a walk across the downs to surfing as the sunrises, or after they finish work with a jog along a tranquil beach, sailing at one of the local clubs to watching the sunset over the sea.

People are realising that having a great lifestyle is just as important as a rewarding career, and last year saw an increase in the number of people relocating out of the UK cities to the countryside in search of the best of both worlds.

The Isle of Wight is favoured by many people for the stunning outdoor environment, the wide range of activities available and the healthy environment this creates.
