In the beautiful West Wight, Ruskin Lodge is often described by guests as having a warm, relaxed and friendly feel.

Visitors are provided with keys to allow free access throughout the day. All rooms are large, light and airy and great care has been taken to retain the period feel of this late Victorian home, with features such as fireplaces retained where possible. Relax in the cosy conservatory or on the balcony, with its unobstructed panoramic views across the 1970 Isle of Wight Pop Festival site, the Downs and the western end of the Island. The house built and owned by a Dr Dabbs who was the family Doctor for the Tennyson family, a friend of Hallam Tennyson and was present and administered to Tennyson in his final days and hours. His wife Nina Laura Peets may have had connections with the Reverend Dodgson ( Lewis Carroll). It is said he dedicated a book to her when she was a child.
