Full Details

Set on Meadfood Sea Road leading down to Meadfoot beach and coastline with views to Thatcher Rock, with the convenience of the town centre and harbour close by.

The Marstan is a delightful 5* AA accredited luxury villa believed to be of early Victorian origin built around 1850 and a splendid example of a refined privately run Guest House, presented to a superior standard whilst enhancing the original charm and character of a property of that era.

The property boasts many fine period features such as decorative coving, cornice work, ceiling roses and high ceilings, combining both space and character along with modern day guest accommodation.

The current owners have carried out an extensive refurbishment programme to include the bathrooms, bedrooms, owners private accommodation and more recently the bespoke luxury/commercial kitchen.

The business currently trades on a seasonal basis from Easter to autumn on a B&B basis, with a profitable turnover above the VAT threshold.

The Marstan holds a restaurant license allowing the new owners the option, if so wanted, to cater for evening meals and trade to non-residents and thus further expand the business.
