BUSINESS

The business has traded well owner operated for many years with good custom and has earned itself a fine reputation with visitors and locals alike. Of late, because of lifestyle choice the business now only operates part of the year and with 4 letting bedrooms only. We, the agents, feel that there is tremendous scope to expand on this business, not only by upgrading the present website and opening throughout the year but also with more aggressive marketing, opening the bar to the paying guests and extending the letting bedrooms to 6 which, would dramatically increase the existing profit. Because of its excellent condition, full business rates exemption and quality accommodation on offer, this all contributes to recipe for high profit levels. Actual trading accounts will be made available following a successful formal viewing.
