Dimbola Lodge

Situated in picturesque Freshwater Bay, Dimbola Lodge has been described as the best kept secret on the Isle of Wight. Formally the home of celebrated Victorian photographer Julia Margaret Cameron, the lodge was saved from demolition at the very last minute and is now used to host photography exhibitions, including a permanent exhibition of Julia Margaret Cameron's work.
