The Lake, just 400 yards from the sea shore, offers excellent 4 Star Isle of Wight Guest Accommodation with a superb choice of breakfast, situated in the beautiful ´olde worlde´ village of Bonchurch, near Ventnor. The Lake is a really comfortable and friendly family-run holiday accommodation, with great rates, including car ferry inclusive packages from any of the ports. The Wyatt family have run The Lake for the last 40 years and it is currently run by Richard and Carol Wyatt, plus a bunch of eager-to-please staff. There are no pretensions here, but comfort and service come first. We believe we can offer some of the best value accommodation, food and service available on our beautiful Island!

All our 20 bedrooms include en-suite facilities with shower or bath, 32" LCD colour TVs and tea & coffee making facilities. 10 rooms are in the main house on the first floor, eight rooms are in the new wing annexe, with four on the ground floor and four on the first floor. Two rooms are in the coachman´s cottage, both with bath and village outlook.

The Lake is surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery on the Island. It is set in its own lovely, two acre gardens and nestles at the foot of the famous Undercliff on the sea-ward side of the village, with St. Boniface Down rising magnificently 800 feet on the northern side, which ensures a mild, almost sub-tropical climate. There is excellent walking along the coast or across the downs, and the famous Landslip walk starts in Bonchurch itself. Originally called Orchard Leigh, the house was built around 1820 and Victorian bays were added when they became fashionable. Extensions have been built at various times up to 1968, but the charm of days gone by has been retained and the main house has held onto its country house atmosphere. We are open February to November.
