Charming 16th Century Thatched Cottage Bed & Breakfast

Myrtle Cottage is a thatched late 16th Century characterful dwelling with a recently renewed thatched roof.

The building is constructed of traditional heavy cob walls, offering accommodation on ground, first and second floor.

Our clients have been in residence for the last 8 years and have upgraded the property which is now available as a going concern.

There are four en-suite bedrooms on the first floor (one used by the owner).

The second floor has been converted into a tasteful family suite with its own bedroom, plus living area/second bedroom, en-suite facility and dormer windows to the rear affording views towards the sea and surrounding countryside.

The property benefits from oil fired, radiator central heating, is mostly double glazed and will be offered comprehensively equipped subject to trade inventory.

The roof had a complete new thatch covering in 2019.

The ground floor provides a through hallway, cosy private lounge with deep set inglenook fireplace with log burning stove and off the lounge there is a private bedroom/office with en-suite facility.

On the other side of through central hallway is a dining room with a deep set fireplace and a log burning stove.

To the rear on the ground floor is a boot room and beyond a fitted kitchen with laundry/storage room off.

To the first floor there are 4 en-suite letting bedrooms and to the second floor a further en-suite letting bedroom with its own living room area/second bedroom and off the bedroom en-suite shower room/w.c.

The property has the valuable benefit of parking to the rear for 3 cars, a good size paved patio which enjoys a sunny aspect and garden area and to the front, to one side of the property, is a further parking space for one vehicle.

This is a Great Lifestyle Business!
The business operates as a home and income for our clients who open the Guest House for about 10 months of the year letting 4 of the bedrooms from choice.

Gently traded to suit the current owners, the turnover is in the region of £50,000 per annum, with great potential to increase.

This is an excellent home and income opportunity and early viewing is strongly recommended. Audited accounts will be made available for seriously interested parties who have inspected the property.
