First and foremost Holden House is a lovely property which provides cosy and comfortable accommodation for guests and a delightful home for owners. This is an excellent home and income business which is run by the owners on easy B&B lines throughout the year on a pre-retirement basis, not pushing too hard for trade and earning good profits into the bargain.
Situated only a short drive from the M1, Holden House is very conveniently situated for visitors to the area and has the convenience of Nottingham and Derby nearby as well as beautiful walks along the river and canal close by. There is good commercial trade midweek and at all times there are leisure visitors using Holden House as a really nice alternative to the large full service hotels.
The owners acquired Holden House in 2000 and have loved their time there. Now, as retirement approaches, it is time to move to pastures new so buyers have an opportunity to acquire a high quality B&B business and a lovely home.


This is an opportunity to purchase an outstanding Grade II listed Georgian property located in a beautiful riverside setting within the delightful and sought after village of Shardlow. It is situated in a very generous plot. Trip Advisor reviews are 5 star and Booking.com reviews are at 9.3. There is also room for vegetable patches and animals further down the river bank. Two large chicken pens provide plenty of fresh eggs daily. The whole of the garden and land is south facing with wonderful sunrises appearing over the river. Believed to date back to approximately 1778. The property stands on the banks of the river Trent with the Trent and Mersey Canal to the side. It has stunning views and offers the most spacious accommodation. The property is currently run as a very successful bed and breakfast and the accommodation in brief comprises: Entrance hall, spacious lounge diner with French doors opening onto a patio area with delightful views over the river, separate dining room with character beams to the ceiling and open hearth fireplace, modern and well-appointed kitchen with gloss light cream units and integrated appliances including Neff double electric oven and large grill, warming drawer, utility room, eight double bedrooms spread over two floors, five of which have en-suite shower rooms and a separate bathroom located on the second floor. The building itself benefits from gas central heating along with beautiful period style sash windows and offers spectacular views over the river. Standing in generous grounds, the plot includes a fore garden with neat flower beds, flag stone paved pathways and gravel beds. To the side of the property is a walled gravel driveway providing ample off road parking for up to eight vehicles along with access to a large outbuilding currently used as garage space and measuring 31'6" x 18'3. This building offers excellent potential to convert into further living accommodation or business premises and incorporates two out buildings which were once part of a brewery. The property is served by a patio garden behind along with lawned gardens along the river bank. The current owners have also purchased a large amount of land adjacent to the river bank that stretches for some distance and offers further potential. This is not just a stunning, historic and well located period property, it is the step to the good life, one that the current owners have enjoyed for the last seventeen years. With riverside walks and the canal walks very close to the property, along with a host of well-regarded real ale houses, restaurants and highly rated schools, such as the nearby Shardlow Primary School, Shardlow is a location that offers the very best of village life and yet offers excellent road links to the A50, A38 and M1 motorway networks and easy access to both Derby City and Nottingham. There is also a great bus service running every 20 minutes. TripAdvisor and Booking.com reviews are excellent.
