Why Live On The Isle of Wight

Why Live On The Isle of Wight


The Isle of Wight occupies a unique position as the south coast’s largest and most accessible island. Located off the coast of Hampshire it is a favourite with both residents and tourists alike, for its miles of stunning coastline, its rolling countryside and quaint villages. Premier Property can help you with your Isle of Wight property search.

The island is most commonly accessed by ferries which provide a regular service from Lymington, Southampton and Portsmouth. The Isle of Wight, however, does not have its own airport so flying to the island is difficult. Though this may be unpopular with some prospective purchasers, residents often say that the island’s distance from the mainland is the area’s greatest attraction.

The Isle of Wight boasts the most sunshine hours of any coastal resort in the UK. It hosts several major festivals, including Cowes Week - the famed sailing regatta, and the UK’s largest Walking Festival which includes over 200 walks. For every resident therefore, there are on average 21 tourists so be prepared for busy summer seasons.
