Haylands is an area just to the south of Ryde on the Isle of Wight, off the south coast of England. Located to the east, it is a short walk away from housing estates at Pell and Binstead.[1]

The settlement consists mainly of a housing development, including some ex-local authority housing, a corner shop in Upton Road, a primary and a middle school. It is not far from Ryde High School at Pell Lane. In the centre of Haylands there is a pub called Lake Huron. The pub's name originates from the Lake family, a 19th-century family of brewers who owned several pubs naming them after the Great Lakes of North America, Lake Huron is the only one to have survived.[2]

Haylands forms part of the local electoral ward of Havenstreet, Ashey and Haylands and at the Isle of Wight Council election in 2009 elected Independent councillor Vanessa Churchman.[3]

The settlement lies to the west of the A3055 road. Haylands is approximately 5.5 miles (8.9 km) north-east of Newport. Southern Vectis route 4 used to link the area with Ryde and East Cowes.[4] However this caused the journey time to increase significantly and the area was later withdrawn from the service and after negotiations a limited replacement service was put in place.[5] This service was later improved and is now run as route 37.
