Premises Details:

The Wellwood Trades as a 4 star luxury guest house, is set in approximately 2.5 acres of mature gardens and is a substantial 2 storey building constructed at the end of the 19th century. The property has been extended to the rear by a 2 storey plus attic extension. The property is of traditional stone and slate construction and has been extensively upgraded throughout over a period of 9 months from November 2015 opening for business again in June 2016.

This is a 'walk-in' business opportunity. No further works required now or in the medium term future.

Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

The business is fully licensed for alcohol sales and may be usefully expanded by the installation of a full bar and service of afternoon teas / evening meals.
The Wellwood has large gardens in which more accommodation or a standalone bar/restaurant may be built.
Of course any expansion would be subject to local planning permissions.

Competition / Market:

The Wellwood is aimed at the high end of the B&B market. There are 66 guest houses in the town. The Wellwood is currently ranked at 24, and still moving up the Trip Advisor rankings. We have only one other property, a hotel, that competes in quality.

Reasons for selling:

The Wellwood is not our core business activity. We have invested in the building and built the business to provide a great platform for the new owners to expand into high teas, evening meals, full bar ... the possibilities are many.

Trading hours:

08.00 - 21.00 during the holiday season from February to November
