Exmoor House is in probably one of the UK’s most beautiful countryside locations with the villages of Exford, Dunster and the chocolate box coastal town of Porlock a short drive away. The guesthouse is situated in ‘Wheddon Cross’ which offers a friendly thriving local community, with its own community shop, post office, petrol station, village hall, cattle market and lovely pub offering a good range of meals. All this is situated in the heart of Exmoor National Park. Only 15 minutes’ drive away (9 miles) you will find the coast with beaches and good road links to the M5 motorway and the city of Taunton.
This lovely business offers top quality accommodation recommended by the AA and TripAdvisor (9.8), who awarded Exmoor House Travellers Choice for 2021. The deservedly high room charge, repeat custom and no requirement for staff, make this an ideal business to purchase to generate impressive income figures. Whilst trading with 5 letting rooms but would easily trade with 7 rooms and yet providing excellent ground floor owners apartment.
and The property benefits from Superfast broadband for all the guests and the overall condition is very good, resulting in minimum maintenance requirements. The website is attractive, informative and easy to use. The owners do not trade all year round due to lifestyle choice, but the location would easily allow for this, adding to the already impressive income figures. The ground floor apartment was, until recently, used by a family member, but has now been transformed to a further letting unit. This apartment could easily rent out as a self-contained holiday unit, guest room (suite) or even become additional owners’ accommodation. Full hand over to ensure continued success will be offered and actual trading accounts will be made available following a successful formal viewing.
