Isle of Wight homes recommended

The Isle of Wight has been singled out as a good location to purchase a holiday home for those who are based in the south of England.

Writing for the Independent, Alan Cleaver stated there is a "romantic" appeal of living on a small island.

"There's something about 'escaping' and being cut off from everyone else that just brings those stress levels crashing down," he said.

The Isle of Wight may be perfect as it is possible to travel to the island at the weekends before returning to a job in Southampton or Portsmouth - or even London - on Monday mornings.

Figures for May 2011 revealed by the Land Registry show £151,034 is the average price of a home on the Isle of Wight.

Ventnor could be a popular location for those searching for a holiday home on the island, as it was recently the subject of a four-page spread in Tatler magazine.
