“Jon Clapham of Sherlock and Watson has advised on various properties we have acquired on the IOW. He has also advised on re-sales along with build/maintenance matters. I have known Jon for a very long time and always found him thorough and professional” www.clydesdalegroup.co.uk
Honest and reliable property finding and management. We would use Sherlock and Watson again without hesitation.
Sherlock & Watson found me my perfect home on the island. They followed my brief to the letter… So much so that that after only two viewings I made an offer and moved in after 3 months. I haven’t looked back and am enjoying living life to the full. I would recommend Jon Clapham highly.
They found me my perfect apartment and ensured that the property and location fully met my brief. Following their report, I went to view with my husband and was overjoyed with the property. We have since moved in and love it. Thank you Jon & Ella.
I cannot praise them highly enough! As a lady of a ‘certain age’ i would worried about traipsing around dozens of properties to find my next home. They took away all the stress and the worry and they even arranged the packing of my belongings. It could not have been easier for me. I would certainly recommend using this service.

Best Places to Retire
The best places to retire are those which offer the services, accomodation and activities which are particularly important to older people. Elementary you would think, but of course not all the well known retirement locations actually provide all these elements. You could travel up & down the UK searching for the the best places to retire, some would be better than others, but in our view the Isle of Wight is the top UK location – especially if you want to be an active retiree. Stan Russell, a retirement income expert at Prudential, said: “Our analysis shows that every part of the country has something different to offer pensioners, but the counties with the most attractive attributes tend to be along the southern and eastern coasts of England”. August 2017. The Isle of Wight has been a favourite holiday destination for mainlanders since Regency and particularly Victorian times and as such there is a wealth of period property on the Island.

Gigabit Island – The Isle of Wight
‘Gigabit Island’ Wightfibre secures £35m investment To deliver Ultrafast Broadband to 50,000 Homes & Businesses WightFibre has unveiled plans for a “full-fibre, future proof, ultrafast broadband network” across the Isle of Wight which will deliver some of the fastest speeds in the world. Up to 1Gb (1,000Mb) or faster will be made available to over 50,000 homes and businesses across the Island, including areas not previously served by WightFibre. The £35m boost is backed by investment manager Infracapital and is supported by the government’s Digital Infrastructure Investment Fund. WightFibre is the first company in the country to receive investment from the new fund which was launched by HM Treasury in July this year. The investment will safeguard 34 jobs and create around new 20 permanent jobs at WightFibre, with 120 temporary jobs also created during the build phase of the new network.

The existing broadband infrastructure on the island uses fibre to the cabinet but then copper twisted pair from the cabinet to the home. WightFibre’s chief executive officer, John Irvine, said: “Just 10 years ago few of us could have imagined just […]
