On the ground floor is the guest dining room, a spacious and conveniently situated owner's drawing room, an office/study, a commercial kitchen and owner's breakfast room, as well as a utility room and a WC. The guest sitting room is on a mezzanine level. The 7 ensuite bedrooms are all upstairs; 2 (which are accessed by a short flight of steps leading off the main staircase) are used by the owners; the other 5 as letting rooms. Off the main landing there is also a spare bathroom, used as a drying room, and an extra WC.
Outside there are terraced gardens, shrub/flower borders and parking for up to about 8 vehicles. There is also a single storey building currently used as a workshop/store, with a garage adjoining, and a storage shed/log store.
Operated by a couple who personally supervise all aspects of the business, this is an excellent small Guest House establishment. Exmoor House has a good level of repeat business and regular guests. The current owners provide bed and breakfast accommodation and also offer evening meals to guests, although the business could be operated on a purely bed and breakfast basis if desired. There is also scope for running the business as a restaurant with rooms and/or opening the dining room as a café or tearoom during the day (subject to any necessary permissions). The guest house is currently open year round.
We strongly recommend an internal viewing to fully appreciate the spaciousness and the unique character of this property.
Most furniture and equipment is included in the sale price, as well as a comprehensive and well-optimised website www.exmoorhotel.co.uk
Accounts will be made available to those seriously interested properties who have inspected the premises.
Exmoor House is in Wheddon Cross, West Somerset, more or less in the centre of Exmoor National Park. The village is a working community with a pub, shop, post office, petrol station, church and school. Nearby places of interest include Dunkery Beacon, the highest point on Exmoor (3 miles); the historic village of Dunster (6.5 miles; Minehead, the area's principal coastal resort (9 miles); Exford (5 miles) and Porlock (6.5 miles). Taunton, Somerset's county town, is about 23 miles away.
Exmoor House is in an ideal location for visitors to the National Park. Exmoor has a good range of historical and other attractions, so is an excellent destination for holidays and breaks. The area is popular with cyclists and walkers, and there is a range of walks from the door (including part of the popular Coleridge Way route) as well as on and off-road cycling.
