Modernised well presented quaint victorian semi-detached residence, built in 1885 is a superb example of magnificent victorian construction with cream marland brick elevations, slate roof, an extension to the rear and double glazed windows throughout.

The elegantly proportioned and well-presented accommodation has been improved by our clients and now offers three reception rooms on the ground floor, breakfast room, office, equipped commercial kitchen as well as a dining room and stock room.

To the upper floors there are 8 spacious fully furnished en-suite letting bedrooms and on the top floor is a private owners bedroom.

The property also benefits from a lower ground floor garden apartment which has been completely refurbished with kitchenette and shower room.

This in itself could be owners accommodation or used as present as a holiday let at £75 per night.

The property has the benefit of a car park with 5 spaces and a pleasant garden which is approached via steps, which give access to the rear garden.

The garden itself includes a three tier garden with sunny patio, lawned area, vegetable plot with greenhouse and shed.

Our clients operate for 8 months of the year and the business is under the personal supervision of the owners (a husband and wife team), providing bed and breakfast accommodation, which produces a turnover of approximately £70,000 per annum.

Audited accounts will be made available to those seriously interested parties who have inspected the property.

A full inventory of fixtures, fittings and equipment is available and has already been prepared.

This is an award winning guest house that has been awarded the certificate of excellence from tripadvisor and a 4* silver breakfast award; this prestigious award places The Dorchester in the top preforming 10% of all businesses on tripadvisor.

The Dorchester has also acquired consistently high ratings from tripadvisor travellers.
