Available on request

A lovely 9-bedroom detached guest house with beautiful sea views, large car park, gardens and owners’ flexible 2/3-bedroom accommodation. This property, with UPVC double glazing and gas central heating, has undergone a rolling refurbishment programme and is now being presented in an overall good condition. Over many years it has traded successfully on a B&B basis with optional evening meals and has generated excellent trip advisor feed-back. The business does not trade all year round, due to lifestyle choice, but we, the agents, feel there is tremendous scope to expand on the existing turnover. The car park is large and has an orchard area with development potential for a possible granny annex without losing any parking.

Location

Blair Lodge is in a prime tourist trading location which faces the main western approach into the popular village of Combe Martin, North Devon. The South West Coast Path attracts many hikers to the area and the village is often referred to as the Gateway to Exmoor. Blair Lodge is just a few minutes walk from the path and Combe Martin Beach giving stunning sea and countryside views. The attractive beach, popular with families, has an enchanting, sheltered cove with many rock pools and is a centre for kayaking and stand up paddleboarding. Combe Martin has a community which is active all year round and has excellent local shops and amenities. All main arterial roads are nearby and Barnstaple town is only a short drive away.

Business

Whilst the guest house has been operating successfully for many years, as of late, it trades on a low-key basis to suit our clients’ lifestyle choice. Should you not wish to trade with all rooms, it would be easy to convert some of the rooms into self-contained letting units. The property retains a drinks licence and small bar. Should you not wish to trade at all and prefer vacant possession, all forward bookings will be cancelled subject to exchange of contracts. Actual trading accounts will be made available following a formal successful viewing.

Letting accommodation

All guest rooms are decorated and maintained to a high standard and are fully furnished with wardrobes, chests of drawers, bedside tables etc. and equipped with LCD Digital Freeview TVs, complimentary beverage facilities and hair-dryers etc. The popular sea view rooms have been recently refurbished and have pleasant seating areas with views of the bay. All rooms are en-suite apart from a single room which has its own private bathroom.
