Business Summary

Preferred Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this country house guest house, which was established in 1997 and which has been in our client’s careful hands since 2004. The guest house is only now being offered to the market due to our client’s wish to retire. The business is currently not trading, but could generate a turnover in the region of £200,000 per annum, with a 50% occupancy rate. There are 9 x spectacular en-suite letting rooms which have previously been let at £100 per night on a bed and breakfast basis. The property has been extensively refurbished in recent years and is licensed for civil weddings. We feel there is huge scope to embark on a modest marketing campaign and to establish a website to advertise the accommodation and venue. A new owner could also utilise the booking websites again to generate high occupancy levels, with the business previously generating excellent reviews on all the sites. The property has been fitted to a very high standard and is well-maintained throughout. Each room boasts many original features and the whole property is breathtakingly furnished and well-presented throughout. There is spacious owners’ accommodation, which is flexible and could be utilised for further letting rooms. This is an ideal opportunity to acquire a substantial Victorian Grade II listed property, set in 10.2 acres, with huge scope for business development. Early negotiations with Preferred Commercial must come highly recommended.
