Well done Dusty, you are a very lateral thinker. Wrong, but well done anyway as the answer is so close to your logic:
Rutland is totally landlocked in the Eastern Midlands. However, the Isle of Wight is a self contained county and it sits off the south coast between the towns of Southampton and Portsmouth. It is the size of the IoW that changes - when the tide is out its landmass is larger than Rutland and when the tide comes in it is smaller.

The prize is on its way.......I have put it into a little boat labelled: "if found please deliver to Dusty, St. Louis, Missouri, USA" and it is currently on the beach in Cowes, waiting for the tide to come in
