Situated just moments from the beach this period house provides an excellent and versatile arrangement of accommodation with eight guest rooms including with a three-bedroom owners wing, off road parking and lovely enclosed walled gardens to the rear. The interiors are stunning with unique and individually decorated rooms all boasting interior design flair making it a popular destination for visitors to the island and capable of handsome returns for any owner occupier who wishes to run as a guest house such as the current owners.

Arranged over two floors there are a range of well-equipped guest rooms, all with ensuite shower or bathrooms and the owners accommodation to the rear is private with access to glorious and tranquil garden space. Formally known as The Belmore, the guest house has enjoyed healthy trading since the current owners took possession in 2015. Bookings are available from Easter through to October however this period has extended marginally in recent years. The owners have advised that The Townhouse is fully booked from June 2022 through to October. An inventory, accounts and further information about the business are available on request from the agent.

Located on an attractive tree lined avenue leading to the beach and promenade and within walking distance to the main town centre with amenities, restaurants, and cafes as well as beautiful coastal walks to Yaverland and Shanklin. Sandown beach is arguably one of the Isle of Wight’s best beaches, providing a long stretch of sand that is great for children and families. Sandown train station is a short walk away, providing links through to Ryde and access to passenger ferry services to Portsmouth where there are connecting trains to London Waterloo. Fast passenger ferry services also operate between Cowes and Southampton with links to varying London stations. Both entire journey times take an estimated 2.5hrs door to door.
