The Boat House is in a wonderful location of outstanding natural beauty situated in St Lawrence on the Southern tip of the Isle of Wight and overlooking the English Channel surrounded by the Downs and lush countryside and its exotic flora and fauna.


The Boat House Studio

Come and stay in our new stylish, self contained Boat House Studio. It is now available from June 2014 for short stays. It is ideally located if you are walking, or cycling round the Island, or just want to experience the changing sea and skies and listen to the waves.

The studio is situated within an area of outstanding natural beauty, only few minutes from National Trust bridle paths overlooking the famous Sugarloaf and Woody Bay and very close to the 12th century Norman church and with St Catherine’s Lighthouse nearby.

The Location

The studio offers the perfect location to explore the Isle of Wight and especially St Lawrence and its range of bays and wild coves. These walks take you over the cliffs to Steep Hill Cove and its famous crab shacks, on to The Botanical Gardens and on to Ventnor and its harbour.

Take in the whole Ventnor experience with its beach and colourful beach huts and its wide range of avant-garde cafes, bars, shops and galleries, and its popular arts festivals.
