East Cowes is a coastal town on the north side of the Island and has an excellent range of facilities and amenities including doctors, primary schools, marina, 9 hole golf course, shops (including Waitrose) and of course Osborne House, the former marine residence of Queen Victoria. There is easy access to the regular car and passenger ferry services direct to Southampton (55 minutes) and a floating bridge ferry linking to the famous yachting town of Cowes. Both Cowes and East Cowes have extensive marina facilities. Bus services are available into the Island's capital town of Newport (about 5 miles) and the coastal resort of Ryde (about 7 miles).

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 House, the Island is famous for sailing in the Solent; Cowes Week; 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's, Tesco, M&S, Waitrose, Aldi & Asda all have a presence as have other national chains. Communication and transport links are excellent regular car ferries connect with the national motorway network and the local station at Shanklin is only 10 minutes drive away. Trains connect with fast catamarans to Portsmouth with direct trains on 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, wind-surfing, sailing and other water sports, rugby,football (Newport Football Club) cricket, bowling and golf clubs. Good transport links enable day trips to the shopping centres of West Quay, Southampton, and Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth.
