The Isle of Wight

Known as the 'Garden Isle' because of its beautiful landscape, the Isle of Wight is home to miles of unspoilt beaches, rugged coastline and glorious countryside.

Only 23 miles by 13 miles, and a short sea crossing from the mainland, the Island has a unique atmosphere boasting many attributes, not least of which is its slower pace of life and its own microclimate. It enjoys unspoilt villages and fine seaside resorts with many miles of impressive coastal scenery. With safe sandy beaches, it is a place for sailing, windsurfing and swimming, ideal for both young and old.

Ryde

Situated on the sought-after Spencer Road, within a Conservation Area, 52 Spencer Road benefits from being located in an attractive position, just a short walk from the beach and within a couple of minutes' walk of a gated access to Ryde School, off Spencer Road.

There are frequent crossings on the passenger ferry service to Portsmouth (taking about 20 minutes) and to Southsea on the hovercraft (taking about 12 minutes). Ryde also has a large sandy beach, popular for swimmers and kite surfers as well as having a small marina.
