Silk Letting Ltd is delighted to welcome to the market this charming and multi-award winning Freehold café and B&B in Cumbria. This family-run business was established by the owners 11 years ago and has been an ever-growing success. The B&B has stylish and full-equipped rooms all furnished to a high standard. It is perfect for short breaks as it is situated four miles from Gretna Green, a well-known honeymoon destination. The business has a fully-operational website and online booking system which enables guests to book directly through the website or via TripAdvisor. The café offers a wide range of menu choices from tasty light bites to home-made meals. The business offers evening dining for B&B guests by prior arrangement and caters for private parties and special occasion events. With a 5* hygiene rating it is recognised in the local area for its fantastic standards and services.
All premises, assets and fittings are included in the asking price. A full list of assets is available upon request.

The business is situated on a busy main road in Carlisle, Cumbria. The business benefits from being the only B&B in the area. There is parking available directly outside along with street parking on the main road. The business is just off the A7 with hundreds of people passing-by on their way to and from Carlisle and Edinburgh City Centre.

Business Hours:
Monday - Saturday - 8 am – 5 pm
Sunday – 8 am – 4 pm

The business also operates a special evening menu on Tuesday and Friday evenings: 6 pm - 8.30 pm

Reason for Sale:
The owners are selling the business for their well-deserved retirement after running this business successfully for 11 years. This creates the perfect opportunity for any new owner to take over an already well-established and profitable business.

Growth Potential:
This business is fully-licensed which offers endless expansion opportunities such as; opening the café in the evenings as a pub or cosy restaurant, opening a bar that could stage live music or comedy acts to bring together the local community etc.
The business already has an online booking system for the B&B; however, an online delivery service could be offered to expand the target market and increase profits. Thus, delivery agreements could be established with platforms such as Deliveroo, JustEat, UberEats etc. as this has the opportunity to reach hundreds more potential customers outside of the local customer base.
This business is near primary and high schools so introducing a student discount or Kid’s meal deal could bring in a new customer demographic.

**This is a fantastic opportunity not to be missed**
Viewings are by appointment only and all enquiries are to be directed to Silk Letting Ltd!
