Things to see and do on the Isle of Wight
This picturesque island is famous for its pristine beaches, rolling countryside and historic landmarks. There are lots of sandy stretches where you can spend days on end relaxing in the sunshine and swimming in the sea. They include Colwell Bay, Compton Bay and Ventnor Beach, as well as Sandown Bay and Whitecliff Bay, while the Hamstead Heritage Coast is a wonderful place to spot wildlife.

There are lots of good schools across the Isle of Wight, with the highest concentration being in more populated places like Cowes and Newport. Nine Acres Primary, Barton Primary and Newport CofE are all good options in the latter, according to Ofsted, and Cowes Primary Gurnard Primary and Lanesend Primary in the former. Cowes Enterprise College, Ryde Academy and Newport’s Isle of Wight College are among the best options for older children and all are classed as good by Ofsted.
Transport links on the Isle of Wight
The Isle of Wight largely relies on buses for its public transport connections. This is mainly because there aren’t many train services, although there are a couple of lines which operate. However, catching the bus can still be very convenient due to the small size of the island, which is served by a relatively comprehensive network of A and B roads. If you want to get back to the mainland, regular ferries across the Solent are available from East Cowes, Fishbourne and Ryde.
The Isle of Wight property market
There are all sorts of homes you’ll find on the island’s property market, with these often concentrated in the major towns and popular seaside spots. County town Newport has a vibrant scene, including our selection of beautiful 2 and 3 bedroom new build homes along St George’s Way.
