Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

This bed and breakfast has an opportunity to open for longer (52 weeks per year) and grow, it could be possible to open the currently unused bar (further to obtaining a licence), and other great opportunities due to its location. However we have not taken this route due to the lifestyle that we have chosen to lead.

Competition / Market:

We are the only bed and breakfast/guest house/ hotel on Peasholm drive, over looking peasholm park, there are lots of bed and breakfasts in Scarborough, but only a handful of 4 stars and as guests expectations are higher standard; they should receive good quality accommodation and a great breakfast; then 4 star silver has to be the way forward.

Reasons for selling:

We are both in our 60s and wish to retire and move nearer to our family

Trading hours:

We usually open 1st weekend in March and close the last weekend in October = 36 weeks

My husband and I run this together with the support of a self employed cleaner and a weekend girl
Years established:
This bed and breakfast was built in 1936 as a boarding house and has continues to run as guest accommodation until present day
