Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer to the market this stunning 18th century coaching inn which has been established since 1760 and in the careful hands of our clients since 2014. The only reason this excellent business is being offered to the market is due to our clients desire to take a well deserved retirement.
When our clients purchased the business it was completely run down, dilapidated and no longer trading. Since our clients took ownership of the business they have undertaken a complete high specification refurbishment programme over a period of 2 years at a cost in excess of £1,500,000 meaning that the business is in full walk in condition.
Our clients inform us that annual turnover currently runs at £350,000 which is derived from offering 5 star letting rooms, 2 elegant restaurants, 2 bars and a 100+ seater air conditioned function suite.
The menus change regularly featuring occasional special dishes by the chefs. Most produce is sourced direct from local farmers and suppliers. The wine list is small but comprehensive with wines which are reasonably priced and chosen to compliment the menu. On Sundays our clients serve a full traditional Sunday lunch featuring the finest roast meats.
The new air conditioned function suite is unique in the local area and provides facilities for formal and informal events such as weddings, funerals, functions, training and business meetings, business lunches and much more. The Inn can quote for a buffet or a customised sit down menu.
The coaching inn comprises 13 en-suite letting rooms including a family room and a disabled access double room with a wet room. In addition there are 3 luxury suites, two on the second floor, one with a separate sitting room and a two bedroomed suite in the bungalow which also has disabled access and facilities.
All of the bedrooms and suites feature Villeroy and Boch luxury bathrooms custom designed by Signature Bathrooms of Kendal. All the rooms are equipped with free internet access, Freeview television and work areas. “Bath House” toiletries, bathrobes and slippers, a fridge, a safe, and tea and coffee making facilities are provided. Prices are per room and include a freshly cooked to order breakfast each morning.
Facilities for disabled guests are provided in a bungalow adjacent to the car park comprising a double bedroom and a 2 bedroomed suite with its own patio area available with wheelchair access. Both are equipped with luxury ensuite wet rooms.
The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade alongside good word of mouth recommendations.
During the renovations and restoration our clients have continually developed and improved the business introducing new lines and income streams which have enhanced the inn massively and in particular shows in the year on year increase in turnover and profitability.
This is a tremendous opportunity to purchase an established 18th century coaching inn, which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this fantastic business is not to be missed.
