The Isle of Wight is 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. There are now many more facilities than once was the case, Sainsbury, Tesco, M&S and Waitrose all now have a presence as have 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 to 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 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.
This ancient and historic village is situated on the most southerly coast of the Island nestling under the spectacular inland 300ft high cliffs, with its unique flora and fauna. It is dotted with a fine variety of buildings including pretty cottages and ornate country houses. Renowned for its fine climate and secluded Undercliff location, St Lawrence is a 'gem' on the Island.
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.
