This is our second home and is a lovely light, bright top 3rd floor flat, with no one above you and a lift. There are beautiful sea views and sun rises of Ryde Harbour and beyond, from the Juliette balcony in the living room and you ‘wash up’ to sea views in the kitchen. This flat is in a great position near the beach, walks, cycling along the beach, pubs, restaurants, bus station, and train station and you can go and watch the Hovercraft coming in. It can be quite lively in the summer, with lots going on. There is also a car park. The closest car ferry is Wightlink to Fishbourne from Portsmouth (40 minutes), which is 5 minutes drive to Ryde. You can also get a Red Funnel ferry from Southampton to East Cowes (1 hour), which is 15 minutes drive to Ryde. Red Funnel gives better ferry prices and I may be able to get you some discount codes. You can get a train to Portsmouth and then either a Fastcat (22 minutes) or Hovercraft (8 minutes) to Ryde. The Hovercraft is 3 minutes walk away and the Fastcat is either a 15 minute walk from the end of Ryde Pier Head, or a train ride. The Isle of Wight is a great place to visit with lovely country walks, pretty villages and lots to do. It has beautiful light, sun rises and sun sets - it's place people fall in love with.
