Property description

A beautiful characterful building that has been successfully run as a bed and breakfast guest house by the current owners for 17 years. Located in a prime location in the bustling seaside town of Shanklin, the property gives the next lucky owner a superb opportunity with on-site owner's accommodation located on the lower ground floor of the building.

The property offers 10 guest bedrooms all with en-suite facilities, which have been frequently upgraded and are delightfully modern offering guests the accommodation they expect.

The property is located perfectly within walking distance of both the bustling town, the beautiful sandy beach and the Old Village and its stunning Chine walk.

Outside of the property there is ample parking for guests within a private driveway on two sides of the building. The private owner's accommodation also boasts its own private garden ideal to relax after a busy change over in the summer months.

The rooms are located over three floors with a lower ground floor bedroom, which could also become part of the owner's accommodation should it be required. There are four ground floor rooms, three of which are good sized doubles and another double that the owners utilise for single occupancy.

There is a guest lounge with bar also located on the ground floor which has access out on to a veranda allowing guests somewhere to relax on a summers evening with a drink or two.

The first floor has a further five guest rooms, ensuring that all guests may be catered for whatever their requirements.

The owners currently run the establishment on a bed and breakfast basis but offer dinner to guests when required.

Due to the location of the guest house the new owner is able to offer as much or little in the way of meals as they wish, as the building is easily walkable to the fine range of eateries that Shanklin town and seafront offer for visitors.

Any buyers seeking an established business with repeat trade and a superb location which will entice trade, this superb guest house may be just what you have been looking for.

What the Owner says:
We purchased this property some 17 years ago as a complete lifestyle change. We have enjoyed our time here meeting lots of new people.

We have established a wonderful return business making wonderful friends along the way.

This property is situated in one of the prime locations in Shanklin and is perfect for all amenities.
It has given us a lovely lifestyle on a beautiful Island but the time has come to retire and let new people enjoy this property as much as we have
