Carena House is a charming Victorian end of terraced property set in the beautiful and historic city of Canterbury. Carena House has been run as a bed & breakfast for 69 years. It is probably one of the longest standing b&b's in Canterbury and is named after the lady who started the business. Carena House has a long standing reputation in Canterbury and our reviews and status can be checked via Bookings.com and Tripadvisor. The flexible accommodation means it can be used for a number of different purposes, whether that is as a private home (we have full planning permission to return to a residential property), a student let, HMO or continuing as a successful and lucrative bed and breakfast.
The accommodation comprises of a large guest dining room, owner private lounge, kitchen and
6 bedrooms which all have en suite shower rooms. Of the 6 bedrooms one is used as a private owners accommodation the other 5 bedrooms are letting accommodation. There is a large basement which is ripe for further development. There is a pretty south west facing garden where there is secure enclosed parking for 2/3 cars and a large shed which has power and electric light.
Throughout the property there is a radio fire alarm system, emergency lighting and fire extinguishers as well as a burglar alarm on the ground floor.
All furniture except for the owners private lounge is included in the asking price as is the goodwill and business website with an on-line booking system. We will in the next 2 weeks have full length internal white shutters fitted to the front of the property.
We have currently owned the property since 2008 and now wish to retire. For any further information or to view our business/home please do not hesitate to ask.

The Gross profit figure is from only 46 weeks trading. We close over Christmas/New year and take two weeks holiday in June/July and November/December. Gross profit could be raised by some 15k if not closed.
The large cellar could be converted in to yet another en suite bedroom (our neighbour has done this at a cost of 20k). The income from this would be approx £85 per night.
