Strand House is a magnificent Regency Villa building spectacularly situated on the seafront in Ryde with probably the best views over the Solent, and just over the Esplanade from Ryde's beautiful sandy beach.
Strand House has two beautifully appointed, well equipped and extremely comfortable non-smoking apartments available for use throughout the year - The Garden Apartment and The Crows Nest Apartment - each suitable for 4(+2) guests.
