Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The property is situated in a good cul-de-sac location and is very close to the cliff path which in turn has access down to the safe, sandy beaches of Sandown Bay. From some of the guest accommodation there are views of the sea and Culver Cliff.

The business has been in the present ownership for some 9 years and the current owners have re-furbished and up-graded much of the accommodation and they now run it on a bed and breakfast basis. Occasionally they will do evening meals for some regular guest parties. The business has received certificates of excellence from TripAdvisor and in the past few years, as well as having a good number of returning guests each year.

Another excellent aspect of this business is the 3 bedroom owner's accommodation and private garden where there is space to accommodate a family if the purchaser is looking to make a life-style change by moving to the Island and running their own business. There are good schools and amenities in the Sandown Bay area.

The guest list ranges from young families, couples of all ages, singles and groups and associations who on some occasions book the entire guest house, including golfing and walking groups. The business currently trades from Easter to September but there is scope to increase the business turnover if a new owner wished to extend the season.
