Commercial Spirit


"I moved from rural Shropshire to study economics at University in London and lived there for ten years studying, then working in the city. The career prospects were great but being office bound didn't fulfill my desire to be creative and run my own business.


"I've always loved the sea and being active, so finding the perfect place to create a great work/life balance was on my list and the Island fit the bill!"


"The Island is a very special place. I've brought up two boys in the West Wight and now they are teenagers, I love to see them enjoying the reasons


commute from my home and beach hut!"


In the Summer, Marianne loves to visit her beach hut at Colwell Bay, especially early in the morning on a low tide, when she heads out for a paddleboard, or a summer swim.


"One of my favourite places has to be Headon Warren with the dogs. On a clear day the views past The Needles to the South Coast are breathtaking and you can turn around and look across the whole of the West Wight."

Marianne Su Yin


Keen watersports enthusiast, Marianne Su Yin, moved to the Island in 1995 to enjoy the sea and life outdoors.


Now she runs popular gift retail and craft space, Whistle and Hound, in the West Wight and is thrilled to have finally struck the perfect work/life balance.


"As a micro maker I understand how hard it can often be to get your work seen and heard. I've been a self employed creative, running online businesses since 2002. Setting up a gift retail and craft space to support local makers, alongside British independents and fair trade ethically sourced collections was the vision of Whistle and Hound," says Marianne.


"I wanted to help regenerate our rural high streets and encourage people to support and shop local. We also run contemporary craft courses on site in our studio, giving people a space to learn new skills or just a bit of time out of their busy lives doing something creative.

I came here, unspoilt beaches and amazing countryside. They love surfing, paddleboarding and mountain biking so it's great to see them being active. I still run my online businesses from Whistle and Hound and have customers from all over the world. My local community and the wider Island residents have been really supportive. Plus we have thousands of visitors every year coming to the Island. Essentially I can run a local and global business less than five minutes
