LATTON HOUSE was built in the 1870s as a gentleman's residence, and has been operating as a successful guest house in recent years, although the current owners no longer trade. Latton House is an imposing 8 bedroom(all en suite), semi detached house with typical Victorian facade, situated in a very desirable road near the Turf Walk and the safe sandy beach at Totland Bay. The building has been extended and upgraded over the years to provide adaptable and flexible accommodation with great potential to provide a self contained annexe and/or small guest house with owners accommodation on the second floor.

As mentioned, Latton House is situated yards from the beach and stunning downland and coastal walks. There are local shops within a short walk, with a wider range of shops approximately a mile away in Freshwater.
